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.

Luvystypotables (789) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Aroma of bourbon and a pumpkin spice, pale orange color with no head. Taste as if someone dumped allspice in Jack Daniels. A watery feel with a spice finish.

Another delicious wonderful offering from Kentucky Barrel. The texture and color is consistent with others, this being more orange in tint with a hint of the pumpkin that's not overwhelming. Perfect for the fall pumpkin season! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright gold color with almost no head and little oily lacing. Aroma has strong pumpkin. Flavor is sweet and tangy, with spicyness, cinnamon and pumpkin. Sharp alcohol up front but finishes with pure pumpkin. Better than I thought it’d be

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of pumpkin, vanilla, bourbon, spice, hints of stone fruit. The taste is pumpkin, spice, vanilla, bourbon, pale malt. Faint bitterness. Medium bodied.

jackl (4932) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, ’thanks’ to Drake. Deep amber pour with hardly any head whatsoever. The nose is of allspice, strong caramel and vanilla. Caramelized pears. Taste of strong caramel. Decent spice. Ginger and cinnamon. Vanilla. Actually not bad considering the brewery’s other efforts.

crossovert (7869) - Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Draft. Amber pour. Smell of booze and pumpkin pie. The flavor is just wretched here. Feels like bourbon was dumped into the beer, harsh and boozy, pumpkin spice vomit, ipecac and sweetness.

davey101 (696) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 10, 2014
12 oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear orange with two fingers of white foam. Nose is butterscotch, fake vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Taste is butterscotch and vanilla mostly with underlying spice. Little pumpkin flavor. Smooth and creamy while remaining thin and light. A little alcohol warmth. This is pretty mediocre stuff.
