Bomber into snifter glass, cloudy amber color with white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices, graham cracker sweetness and some oak. Taste brings out more pumpkin pie spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger), pumpkin, caramel, some vanilla, slight nuttiness and some bourbon notes. Heavy body, low carbonation, syrupy with spicy boozy finish. Big pumpkin ale thatís for sure, heavily oaked influenced and delicious.

draft. I dislike almost all pumpkin beers. This actually is one of the best if not the best imho. Its mostly bourbon and not so much pumpkin. Nicely done.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Pours a dark amber with small amount of off white head. Aroma is bourbon and pumpkin pie. Taste is again bourbon with spices. Somewhat spicy finish, but it hides the alcohol well. Thin mouthfeel for a beer of this strength, was expecting a bit more. Mild carbonation. Interesting beer!

Sample at Bobís Bar. Hazy amber pour with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts, pumpkin and oak. Medium to full body with flavors of oaky bourbon, toasted pumpkin and pecans. The finish is slightly boozy with a roast malt and oak aftertaste. Above average overall.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice copper color with a medium off white head. Aroma is a buttery, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, molasses, bourbonesque kinda thing. Taste is initially a lightly sweet, mildly spicy pumpkin. Those flavors lead to some malt flavors laced with the pumpkin pie spices and mild oaky bourbon. Finish is a spicy bitterness. Well made, not over the top, and definitely not cloying.

bottle. deep amber orange with small head. iím not a big fan of pumpkin beers, nor over the top barrel aged beers. however, this beer is absolutely wonderful. the pumpkin is balanced by a good amount of spice, and the level of bourbon is just about perfect -- a complement rather than a distraction. highly recommended.

Wow, this is a different twist on pumpkins! The bourbon barrel really stands out in the aroma and dominates the flavor as well. It pours a pretty rustic orange with a thin white head that doesnít leave much lacing. The pumpkin flavor is really low key and is there simply to compliment that bourbon flavor. Interesting and unique to anything Iíve ever had. Very good!!

Bottle. Iíve never been a huge fan of pumpkin beers, but if you gotta have one, this is it. Rich, thick. Spicy. Nice head. Big time clove and nutmeg spice piling on the gourd. Delicious on a cold fall evening. (#5301, 10/20/2013)
