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.

From bottle, the pour is cloudy and dark blind in color. A thick white head. The aroma is yeast and notes of sour. The taste is a little sour with pumpkin and a minor note of spice lingering in the back of the finish. The mouthfeel is thin to medium.

Clear , amber color . Small , white head. Aroma of pumpkin spices ( cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander) and bourbon. Malty , spicy taste with vanilla notes and moderate sweetness. Some weird acidity at the end ( spoiled bottle??) . However, drinkable enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a murky orange golden with no head. Vanilla and oak, and a little tartness on the nose. Oak, sweet vanilla, a soured quality, faint pumpkin, and finishes with a sour vegetal component. Flavors don’t work well together. A bit of a vomit quality. Medium-bodied with faint carbonation.

jgb9348 (5727) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Completely clear light amber and copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head that fades very fast. Aroma of bourbon, alcohol, grain and a bit of pumpkin and spice, but not too much. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong spice note up front with a lot of pumpkin and allspice flavour, but not much in the way of body. Aftertaste shows a light oak and bourbon flavour with some vanilla, but there is a bit of sugar and caramel flavour to blend with the squash and grain notes. Completely absent from the flavours altogether is alcohol, which somehow at 10% stays hidden throughout the entire beer, but it does, and it’s nice! Overall, a good beer without a ton of complexity and depth, but still, a relatively easy drink at 10% and squash-based! I sampled this 12oz snifter on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 12-September-2016 for US$5,00 at the end of my driveway!

Habja egyáltalán nincs. A színe teljesen olyan, mint egy whiskey-é. Sőt az illata is, bár van benne valami plusz, úgy gondolom az lehet a sütőtök. Füstös, édeskés, tölgyfahordós whiskey ízű, egy kis sütőtökös mellékízzel. Persze a háttérben felfedezhető a sör alap. Utóíze a whiskey-é.

Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Clear copper amber color. Tow fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention isn’t great, but this is a pretty big beer. A short ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: All the requisite pie spices are there and in ample amounts: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger. The barrel is a lot less prominent than in the original BB ale, but that’s probably due to the spices being so potent. Still, leather, apple, vanilla, and oak are easily detectable. There’s not a whole lot going on from the base beer though. Caramel and toffee with some toastiness. 3.0 T: Like the nose, the spices are the strongest component of the taste. Spices as per above. The barrel is next with wood, leather, vanilla, apple, melon. The base beer does a poor job of keeping up. Again, there’s some caramel, toastiness, and toffee, but just not enough for how big the beer is. 3.25 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess that I wish was more prominent. 3.0 D: It doesn’t taste bad, but it’s not beer-y enough. It more resembles a pumpkin flavored, watered-down bourbon. ★ 1,114 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 11, 2015

12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/8/16. Pours clear darker orange with a frothy beige-tan head. Medium-plus lacing drips down the glass. The aroma is pumpkin and cinnamon spices, bourbon, vanilla, and some wood. Bourbon and light vanilla notes dominate the flavor with a pumpkin spices coming through lightly underneath. Minimal heat and high drinkablity considering the ABV. A pretty interesting beer overall, but not something I could ever see craving. The barrel ran over the pumpkin spice. If you like barrel flavor over pumpkin spice you’ll find this enjoyable.

Nice pumpkin spice aroma. Has a very strong peppery presence of what taste like all-spice. It is a little heavier than a typical pumpkin beer. Will have to revisit this one.
