On Tap at Elysian Fields for SBW (AKA Knot Owl). Pours a nice clear amber with an orange hue. Tan head faded quickly. Very sweet aroma dominated by pumpking, caramel and vanilla, with hints of spice (cinnamon?). Possibly the most appealing aroma I have ever experienced!!! Sweet pumpkin flavor with nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon balanced nicely with the hops, but only a touch of oak. Medium body smooth on the tongue with a good finish. For the style, itís fantastic.

Burnt orange with medium head. You can definitely pick up some vanilla/oak from the barrel aging, but it is far from overwhelming. Comes through in the aroma more than the taste.The pumpkin pie flavor is really smoothed out. I love the night owl, and this is a nice take on it. Would have been interesting w/ a bourbon barrel.

Draft at Capitol Hill. Pours a nice mahogany brown with some orangish hue to it. Decent white head that dissipated fairly quick, but left some light lacing on the glass as I drank it down. Nose is of sweet vanilla and pumpkin with hints of spice and some faint malt. This drinks better than the standard Night Owl, softer spice flavors and carbonation isnít as sharp, but not much in the way of a barrel presence in this one.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 On tap at Elysian Capitol Hill. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a thick frothy head. Spicy cinnamon nose with hints of oak and alcohol. Amazing how much it tastes like a delicious pumpkin pie yet still feels like drinking a beer. Nice thick mouthfeel and long finish of spices and bready malts. Iíve had enough bad experiences with "pumpkin" ales that I steered clear of them for a while, but I really like this one.

On tap at Elysian in capital hill. Frankly, I donít think they got much out of the oak aging. It was a little smoother and there was traces of the oak in the nose, but through and through, it was very much just like the night owl.
