Bottle into glass. Orange hue with fine white head. Strong vanilla nose. In the mouth, more vanilla, you do get a sense of bourbon.the pumpkin flavor is light and in the background, and spices are basically non-existent. Somewhat more hops than I expect. Pretty good brew but not a lot of pumpkin character.

Way to much bourbon flavor for me. Could not get past the alcohol flavor and sadly that is not a flavor I like.

Aromas of pie spice, oak and bourbon. Orange color with a thin white head. Definite bourbon flavor with enough pumpkin ale substance to stand up to the ABV. Lingering pumpkin and alcohol flavor. Very cool take on pumpkin ale, but you’ll want to split this one with a friend or call a cab home.

9/23/2010. From bottle. Sampled together with the Great Pumpkin. This one is a little more complex and the added alcohol make it more interesting. Spice, pumpkin and malt leads the way with light hops.

Pours hazy amber color with off white head. Aromas of bourbon and pumpkin pie spices. Similar flavors. Not really a fan of pumpkin beers but this one was decent.

On draft at the monkey. Nice oak, pumpkin, spice, brandy and vanilla notes all blended together to make a really enjoyable spice brew.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of pumpkin spice, vanilla, and very subtle hints of bourbon. Orange/amber with very slight, lacing head. Medium, mouth-filling body. A bit sweet, good carbonation, with a nice alcohol warmth in finish. This is a really nice pumpkin beer... not too heavy, good flavors, but not overly sweet.

On tap at Twisted Jimmys. Really nice bourbon aroma, oaky with vanilla and lots of pumpkin spices. Deep amber hazy with thin off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with heavy carbonation. Starts sweet with bourbon, vanilla, pumpkin pie spices. Smooth oaky notes with warming and bourbon finish. Nice pumpkin beer.

11/2/13 $12.95 bomber from CBO drank out front with neighbors.
Pours an amber color with minimal head. Tastes at first like a not very sweet pumpkin beer but on the finish you can really pick up vanilla and the bourbon characteristics. Mouthfeel is creamy which is the icing on the cake of this my favorite pumpkin beer.

Good amount of pumpkin flavor but way too hoppy for me and way too bourbon taste for me.
