On tap at the 2009 Great Pumpkin Festival, Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge MA on 31 October 2009. 6.4% according to the festival programme so I don’t know whether they did something different to this version. I was a bit apprehensive as I am no great fan of either Scottish style ales or pumpkin spices but it worked out OK, probably because the barrel aging and Rodenbach yeast inoculation concealed some of the elements that I don’t enjoy. Hazy red/orange colour. Fat malt aroma with some musty, woody character. Slightly sour and not too spicy. Good, if rather sweet. Interesting stuff that maintained my interest throughout. Had something of the Duchess de Bourgogne about it.

Elysian jackobite - nose is very winey and barrelly. Pours dark orange thin head. Flavors are lightly tart and winey some slight toffee and roast and a hint of spice underneath. Lingering barrel notes.

Sour ale with a Barrel flavor to boot. The pumpkin was light the Scottish flavor was huge.

on draft for pumpkin fest. Surprisingly sour tart taste. Funk aroma. Lightly bubbly palate. Hoped it would be better.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Gorgeous scotch-amber color with dollop of cream head that clings to the sides. Jack Daniels emanates from the glass, dominating the olfactory and taste senses, though amber malts, and a sugary barrel flavor work there way in.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Dark amber with medium head. Bourbon aroma. Bourbon taste. Sweet malt.....but the bourbon really took over anything else this beer had. Too much.

CapFlu (4516) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at Elysian Pumpkin Beer Festival on October 20, 2007. Cider yeastiness. Good barrel woodiness mixes into a strange Flemish Sour flavour. Very cool and interesting. I liked this one most.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2007
10/20/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is verty funky; at first I thought it was fruity tempra, but thank god I brought Friends from Mexico with me: this is gold tequila with some sour phenolic notes. Appearance is a slightly hazy amber with a moderate off-white head. Flavor is super sour alcoholic malt with very low bittering but no hop flora. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall, I found this totally wrong with the tequila funk and phenolics that just clashed. Sorry Josh, but a 3 is way too generous.
