3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber from a bottle. Nose of bourbon--vanilla and oaky, some nondeScript spices, maybe allspice and nutmeg. Flavor slightly pumpkin, lots more of the bourbon and spice flavors. Somewhat sour rye flavor or something like that. Not terribly boozy, just enough to match the bourbon flavor. Good beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear orange with a thin ecru head, no lace. Beautiful looking, for what it’s worth. Aroma is pumpkin, vanilla and a healthy dose of bourbon. Sweet, gut warming brew with the pumpkin flavor, spices and vanilla all melding nicely with the oak and bourbon. A slow sipper for cool autumn evenings. Very nice!!

I love bourbon ales, and pumpkins. I figured this would be amazing. It wasn’t. It has a amber color. Has slight pumpkin aroma. Flavor starts off a bit sweet, than has harsh bourbon, and a bad canned pumpkin flavor. It has a rough finish. Just not great.

Pours a deep amber with an orange hue, a thin head which dissipates quickly.....aroma of pumpkin spices, nutmeg.......taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, alight bourbon hint, quite dry, alcohol is well hidden, ends with thick bitterness.....unfortunately it doesn’t come together terribly well.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on one of the first nights of fall. Appearance is a clearish amber with a thin white head. Aroma of pumpkin and bourbon, very good combination that goes well together. Taste is also pretty good, lightly sweet, bourbon isn’t too prominent but apparent. I think this was well done.

Pours a clear deep amber red. Not a ton of bourbon vanilla but standard pumpkin spice. Burny booze. Not bad.

Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a dark copper color with a medium sized creamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tart, fruity and had hints of caramel and nutmeg. The flavor was bitter, tart and vaguely fruity with caramel, apple and a hint of nutmeg. Medium length tart, bitter and astringent finish. Medium body. Meh.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear pale orange/amber with a nice persistent off white head. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttered corn, pumpkin, cinnamon and vanilla. ABV goes unnoticed till after the swallow when you feel the warmth. Decent pumpkin ale.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear deep copper amber color, beige head cover, globs of lace. Taste is malt that is immediately challenged by pumpkin, followed by spices and fizz on the swallow. Light hops make for a balanced finish. Surprisingly complex, surprisingly good.
