Bottle thanks to bittermestupid.Clear dark yellow brown pour, lightly spotty lacing and an aroma of strong pumpkin. Flavor is boozy pumpkin, flowers and plenty of pumpkin spices and sweet on the finish. Not a bad beer, but I don’t see how barrel aging helped this one.

Pours rich pumpkin in color with thin whispy head. Aroma is lots of pumpkin, some spice and a fair amount of whiskey. Taste follows with good pumpkin taste. It is like Pumpking on steroids. Similar to Rumkin, but not as cloying sweet or hot.

Thanks kathouse for this beauty. A bit flat.. Possibly from the journey.. But still an amazing beverage. Pours a muddy apple cider. Wonderful aromas of pumpkin, butterscotch, vanilla, and booze. Cinnamon too. Flavors are sweet vanilla and cinnamon... Pumpkin and quite a bit of booze. Bordering on harsh. I would love to try the non barrel aged version. Still.. This is magic in a bottle.

Bomber, from veterans liquor COS. Very complex aroma of spices, including clove, allspice, cinnamon and coriander. Also has notes of pumpkin, vanilla and bourbon. Pours amber-orange with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. All of the aforementioned spices start out the flavor profile with notes of pumpkin. Finishes very smooth with notes of vanilla, bourbon and a bit of booze. Not a lot of pumpkin flavors as it gets overpowered by the bourbon, but still very enjoyable.

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.

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.
