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

tap - Pours amber-orange with a small head. The aroma is mostly bourbon, as is the flavor, but it also tastes of pumpkin pie spices. It has similar bourbon and sweetness levels as the brewer’s flag ship bourbon ale. Good beer.

Pumpkin flavor dampens bourbon flavor but the overall pumpkin spice has a different taste than standard pumpkin ales

pours crystal clear amber. Nose has all the elements one might expect. vanilla, cinnamon, oaky bourbon, caramels, sweet richness. Flavor is similar in spice, bourbon, and vanilla character. Sweetness is medium light and the body is medium. Pretty tasty overall. Could have been a fuller body to support the alcohol strength.

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.

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.
