COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale is 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. Some retailers will be offering collectible jack-o-latern snifters along with the ale.

Pretty much just barrel. Pours amber without much head or lacing. Some light pumpkin here with all associated spices. Scion thanks to Travlr.

I love it so much that I practically bought out the North shore :) Just realized it was 300 calories. Oh Well its seasonal so I will over look that. Love it.

Bottle. Pours a really pretty orange-amber with a bright white, large-grained, lacy head. Nose is nutmeg, allspice, orange, vanilla, and a touch of both bourbon and pumpkin. Sweet, boozy, and smoky up front, with a lot of vanilla and brown sugar; there’s a ghost of vegetal flavor on the back of the palate to remind you that a pumpkin was involved at some point, but the bourbon pretty much takes it out back of the woodshed and beats hell out of it. Drier on the finish, with a long, oaky streak. Good beer -- I just wish there was a bit more pumpkin involved, if they were going to go to the trouble of putting it on the label.

Bottle pour copper with minimal head. Nose pumpkin, pie filling, and hint of barrel. Taste some Bourbon up front, followed by pumpkin pie. Lighter bitter finish. Barrel carries from early to mid palate.

The aroma is pumpkin, vanilla, oak. The appearance is clear deep amber, white head. The flavor is caramel, pumpkin, brown sugar, spice, light bourbon. The finish ois bourbon, warming. Pretty nice.

Draft at Cock n Bull. Pours a clear golden with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, pumpkin flavor but not fleshy like some, vanilla, bourbon, light spices, very sweet, light bodied yet I can see the 10%.

Beerman6686 (4575) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014
This poured a darker orange color with a white head. Aroma was of ppkin spice and booze. Flavor similar, not really any barrel as much as alcohol heat.

12oz Bottle. Typical Amber color. A large nose of cinnamon. I have to be honest this was very rough for me to get down. Just not my cup of tea

12 oz bottle. Glowing golden orange. Lots of pumpkin pie, vanilla, cinnamon. Even has a bit of cool whip cream. Touch of booze that mixed nicely. Very thin. Was really expecting complete crap based on the regular Kentucky bourbon ale but this wasn’t too bad.
