COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A barrel-aged ale brewed with Kentucky-sourced pumpkin, richly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. As the ale is aged in fresh bourbon barrels, the sweetness of caramel and vanilla are imparted upon the brew and complement its spicier base. At 10 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), this robust, limited release seasonal makes for a flavorful sipping beer to slowly warm up with as the weather cools.

Bottle. Pours clear orange with a white head that lingers at the rim. Rich pumpkin spice aroma over mild carbonation. Tastes of pumpkin and spice but a bit of a harsh boozy finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 10/22/14. Clear, deep orange color, white head with very light lacing. Alcohol right to start the smell, as it warms you get the other aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste is of the pumpkin spices, bourbon is very dominant.A nice sweet caramel malt base, vanilla and some oak on the finish. Medium mouthfeel, light carbonation. Overall too much booze spoiled what could have been a really tasty beer.

bout the same body and feel as the peach and IPA. This one has a clearish light orange-amber appearance. Pumpkin isnít too sweet or overwhelming. The bourbon is actually the hit here. Solid all-around beer that I wanted to try last season, but will probably pass on the next.

hopscotch (10118) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle (2013)... Clear dirty-orange pour with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is a luxuriant swirl of caramel, toasted oak, vanilla and bourbon with a rumor of holiday spices. Full-bodied with a heavy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor provides smooth, interwoven notes of caramel, bourbon, vanilla and a hint of toasted coconut. Thereís absolutely no heat here and any holiday spices are an afterthought. Iím drinking this in late December 2014. Mind-bogglingly good. Not overly sweet. Eight months of room temperature aging, followed by six months in my beer fridge. This is a shelf beer to buy and hang onto for a good while.

reggiedunlop (3469) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours clear orange with no head. Aroma has notes of pumpkin pie filling and vanilla. Flavor follows suit but it is a bit bland...no trace of the 10% abv. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry earthy/pumpkiny finish. Not too bad...just a bit bland and dead looking with no head at all.

ryanfolty (2104) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2014
December 25, 2014 - bottle from Jim. Clear orange pour with big head that lasted. Aroma was pumpkin spice, malt and mild bourbon. Taste was very malty initially, then moved into the pumpkin spice and finished with the bourbon. Once the bourbon faded then the spice came back.
