On tap at DBS. Pours a caramel color with a thick tan head. Smells of pumpkin, cloves and nutmeg. Tastes pretty much the same. The fall spices take over for most of the flavor and hit the palate a little to hard.

Bottle @ THT January. Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma has loads of pumpkin spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugary touches and hints of oak. Flavor is sweet with a big boozy note, brandy touches, pumpkin again and has this sticky sweet mouthfeel. Greatly balanced, great sweetness and alcohol is not overpowering. Great stuff!!

Thanks Matt Reece/blackcloudlabel.
This was poured into a sample flared pilsener glass.
There was a nice light half finger-ed white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving a slight lacing roaming here and there.
The smell had an authentic bourbon to vanilla sweet and somewhat pie - like/crust to light bread and even biscuit - like to an extent.
The taste was mainly sweet and bready toasty /biscuity - ness roaming across my tongue. Light vanilla to roasty sweet aftertaste leading to a sweet and dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. There’s a light sweet carbonation about it.
Overall, definitely a pumpkin ale I could come back to with extra compliments to it.

Stop it. Wtf is this sweet vegetable joose. Beer smells ok and reminds me of pie but the taste oh the taste.... Really sweet vegetable compost. Take broccoli trunk, potato peels, carrot tops, and pumpkin guts and put em in a bag with a lb of sugar and a cup of cinnamon and a bottle of brandy and let it ferment. You will get this. Thats what this is.. try it! do it! you wont do it!

Amazing brew, nice and sweet malty boozy barleywine, one of the best pumpkin beers ive had for sure, howeverbslight deduction for not aging well, saved two bottles for a year and recently opened one and it was infected. Still a lovely beer fresh, get this years!!!
