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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

As soon as you pour this beer the amazing aroma of pumpkin spices jumps out at you making you mouth water. The clarity of this beer is amazing. Nice thin head and a slight orange tint.
An interesting mix with the pumpkin and bourbon. It's almost like the mixture watered the beer down some. You do get an excellent taste of both. The pumpkin up front, a little watery in the middle and which gives the bourbon after taste seems like it's at the end of a good bourbon on the rocks. Not bad, just would of liked a little more bite ate the end.
