Bottle poured into glass. Was pretty jazzed to try this and sadly it didn’t really live up to my expectations. Good pumpkin flavor, much like the regular version, but the whiskey barrel doesn’t really come through all that much. Slight rye on the back end but that’s it.

Bomber from a PUB’R capo. Pours hazy orange with off-white head. Nose is caramel, pumpkin, oak, sweet potato. Tastes of huge oaky bourbon, some lighter pumpkin, caramel sweetness, finishes boozy.

Backlog from the Brony Bottle Share at Travlr’s. Lite copper with bare white head. Peppermint, honey, malt, pumpkin spice. Not good.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy orange color with beige head that goes away quickly. Aroma has nice pumpkin with spices but no evident barrel character. But you can get it on the taste along with spices. Quite bitter overall, doesn’t go that well with the spices. Not bad but a bit unbalanced.

22oz bottle - drank this right before I took the kids out trick or treating. Poured an amber color with an averaged sized head. Pumkin, whiskey and pumpkin spices. I wish the spices were more muted by the barrel aging, but not the case - but for what it is, was enjoyable.

Bottle. The pour is lighter than I thought, a mild orange. The aroma is sourish with whisky tones. The taste has whiskey up front and mild pumpkin. Good seasonal beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Murky orange-tinted brown color. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is lacking, but a short ring of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Pumpkin spiciness is most noticeable. It’s a mix of all the usual suspects - allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, maybe some clove, but nothing stand out among them. A light leathery bourbon component complements the pumpkin well. Caramel maltiness from the base with a faint toastiness. It’s good, but it could use some more strength.
3.75 T: Taste is pretty much like the nose. Pumpkin spice, pumpkin, leathery bourbon, mild warming booziness, caramel malt.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess. Could use more body, but overall it’s okay.
3.5 D: Good pumpkin beer, just not a great one. I like big spices, deep rich maltiness, and plenty of body. This doesn’t have any of those, but everything else is done well.

One of the better pumpkin beers, but it’s still not my thing. To much spices, not enough beer,

[ bottle ][ 1oz ][ @DC tasting ][ ? ][ mini tumbler ][ 02.15.15 ]
transparent orange, large bubbled white ring, spotty lacing. Ultra sugary and boozy nose, pumpkin actually plays second fiddle. Spiced flavor, less booze, sugar and oxidation present alongside cardboard mid that grows, spice retuning. Toned down pumpkin, but booze too high and oxidation has softened badly.
