3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. There’s absolutely no heat here and any holiday spices are an afterthought. I’m 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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle from O’Brien’s, Athlone 
Irn Bru Orange, clear, bubbly white head that dissipates away
Aroma - Spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, bit vegetal, sweet Xmas cake spices, no hops, gingerbread, a bit weird
Taste as aroma, no surprises, less vegetal that aroma, just spices, little complexity, sweet malts, some alcohol
Palate - soft carb, unusually thin for the abv. Finish of sweet spicy malts
Overall - Just spices and soft malts, rather strange, not that great, but easy going for the ABV

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good pumpkin brew. Kind of hard to believe this one is 10% as its so flavorful and hides the alcohol well. Very enjoyable.
