3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ah, the pressure of the 1st rating - lucky me.
22oz bottle - Pours clear pumpkin orange. nice aroma. Pumpkin is evident and there’s a light sweetness and a little spice - not too much in either category. The barrel is prevalent but not strong - this could be good or bad depending but I would take a little more personally. The body is thin and unfortunately this ends tasting a little watered down. Okay, but a bit disappointing especially for the $$.
Somebody throw pumking in a barrel please.

Pours orange to ruby, finger off white head, better retention that non ba
Smell big whisky, oak, sweetness
Taste whisky and a bit of allspice
Poor example, whisky dominant, like a boilermaker and almost all pumpkin is lost.

Pours a clear orange with no head. Aroma of pumpkin spices and vanilla and bourbon. Taste is like a pumpkin pie spiced bourbon. Low carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Tough to drink.

Very strong complex aroma of vanilla oak whiskey pumpkin spices. As beer warms the taste flows from spice and ginger to an embracing vanilla whiskey character. Alcohol is easily noticeable. Finish is dry and leaves a whiskey neat puckering mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated and hardly any head or retention. Medium clarity. Medium body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from One Stop Market, Haverhill, MA. Hazy amber color with thick head in the snifter. Nose is a lot of spice. Vanilla, funky white grapes, cinnamon and toffee. The flavor really is NOT pumpkin dominate, lots of spice, nutmeg, cinnamon and big vanilla notes. caramel and toffee is a big player in the malt base with different type of whiskey barrel in the finish. To be the barrel is more like a wine note rather then a whiskey however, I really don’t know how old the bottle is. The changes in the beer make me think that this bottle has some age on it. However, I really enjoy the different flavor profile. Nice medium body with correct level of Co2.

Normally i am not a fan of pumpkin beers, not a fan of pumpkin or the spices. First sip on this is a lotlof vanilla, touch or bourbon. Reminds me of a barrel aged old ale or something. Decent. As this warms, you get more of the pumpkin spice and it becomes more pumpkin which i did not enjoy. Overall decent.

What an extremely weird beer. Very spicey, with notes of cinnamon, some ginger and of course pumpkin. Has some whiskey sharpness as well.

Surprisingly I really liked this beer. It has a really good flavor. A little strong at first, but then once I got used to it I really liked it.
