The bourbon is still a bit overpowering to the pumpkin i would have liked to see a better balance between the two

a clear orange color, aroma of sweet vanilla and spices. first sip you can taste the spices (nutmeg cinnamon) with some sweet undertones. very smooth. aftertaste the aged bourbon really hits you with a pleasant smokey flavour and hint of pumpkin. high ABV is hidden with the well balance of ingredients. very warming flavours thought this was a solid choice.

12oz bottle. Orange color. Aroma of pumpkin spice and bourbon wood. Brown sugar, nutmeg nose. Harsh mouthfeel, Pale Lager character. Flavors of allspice, stale beer, & fusel hidden by abundance of spice. Lacks balance. (3947)

Bottle. Clear orange pour with a moderate white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice and bourbon - pretty nice. Little more bourbon on taste but it tastes kinda cheap. A bit boozy despite the lighter body. Decent, not great.

Poured an orangish amber from the bottle with aromas of pumpkin, all spic3, light nutmeg and bourbon. Flavors were light vanilla and bourbon pumpkin pie. I was surprised with this beer, a nice holiday sipper.

bottle: nice light orange color with a small tan head. Aroma is spicy and bourbon... flavor is almost all bourbon, but then you start to get some of the spice that eventually fades to the wonderful pumpkin hidden away in there... nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
10/18/13. 12oz bottle from a random ABC or something. Lame pour, brownish orange amber with a sizzling khaki head that fades. Plain aroma, hardly any bourbon, just fall spices, booziness, and a hint of sour? Metallic flavor, mild spice, mild bourbon, booziness, sourness, cream and butterscotch. Blech.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
ABC Liquors, Betton. Longneck, Ok label. Clear, light orange beer. Quickly-collapsing tan head that clings. Perfumy, sweet cinnamon aroma with slight diacetyl and wood. Occasionally, the nose came off like Bananas Foster. Sweet, slightly buttery, tinny, unpleasant bitterness -- like a poorly diluted Beam cocktail. ABV is not well masked. Lightish body, metallic finish. Absolutely overpriced and disappointing.

I wasn’t quite prepared for the strong bourbon flavoring, which is borderline overpowering. The beer pours with almost no head, leaving no lace on the glass. Most other pumpkin brews I’ve sampled this fall have been more subtle, and more immediate. I first noted the pumpkin-like aftertaste nearly 10 minutes after I finished my glass of beer. Interesting

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma has strong presence of bourbon with a hint of ripening vegetables. Flavor is bourbon forward with some back end pumpkin spice notes,a touch of canned pumpkin. Mouthfeel is thick enough. 12 oz is enough - edging into cloying territory with the bourbon.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a totally clear orange-hued gold with a small white head. Buttery aroma of vanilla, butterscotch, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice), and bourbon warmth at the end. Very sweet nose. Flavor of vanilla, bourbon, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and toasted sugar- not a lot of pumpkin. Light-bodied, with a sweet, warm, mildly spicy, and dry mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. Not much body to this one; could be better.
