Pours a clear, dark amber color with a thin, off-white head. Aroma is brandy, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon. Medium to heavy on the palate with smooth carbonation. Flavor is sweet, vanilla, brandy, pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, a little boozy, with a light, pie spice finish that lingers for a while.

Copper orange color little head. Smells of all spice, vanilla, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, alcohol. A nice sweet pumpkin taste with a good amount vanilla, all spice, cinnamon. A pretty good mesh of the pumpkin, Xmas spices. Good sweetness with the vanilla, enjoyable flavors. Alcohol is a little hot but not horribly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 bottle. An auburn/orange color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice and cream cheese icing. Taste is pumpkin pie with an extra sweet whipped cream. There is a little alcohol taste slight reminiscent of brandy. Medium-full body that starts creamy on the tongue but ends with a little spice/alcohol burn. Too sweet for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (684) - Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Poured a hazy copper orange color with a small light tan head that settles to a ring with little lacing. Aroma of pumpkin bread with caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of brandy. Taste is sweet but not cloying with caramel and vanilla followed by nutmeg and all spice. Cinnamon creeps in along with some mild brandy booziness and some woody character. Finishes semi sweet with some alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is somewhat slick with a medium body and low carbonation. Flavors blend well but would be best with food because of the sweetness. Would pair nicely with pecan pie.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle:   A fairly spicy example, a little alcohol, with some definite aspects of vanilla and brandy.   Fairly sweet but not cloying.   Very interesting beer, wished I had more than 12oz actually.   Goes down easy, if you like spices.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly full bodied.   Has that fullness, chewy caramel and brandy bits.   Warming spicy finish.   This was also rather tasty!   Thanks Bob!

jmohno (1059) - Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pour has little to no head, lower carb than average, hazed orangish red. Sweet aromas of fruit berry and brown sugar.Low in spice with some malt and vanilla bourbon notes. Sweet brown sugar taste with vanilla notes, orange some booze,malty sweet. Some tang in finish citrus balancing the sweetness some. A bit sticky sweet on the finish. Pretty good for a pumpkin beer.

csaso (1342) - Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle - Fair sixe foamy head, hazy dark orange/copper color, definite pumpkin and brandy aromas and flavor, with mild spice and vanilla notes, pretty balanced overall, and pretty good for a pumpkin beer

Caramel pour with a light brown head. Aroma is pumpkin pie. Taste is pumpkin, spices and sweetness from the barrel aging. Pumpkin flavor balances well through the aging characteristics.

Pdubyah (361) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 14, 2014
This really was a full on experience of a beer. Lots of aroma to warn. Full mouthfeel and a lot of spice action. Gets better as it warm up to, and although the alcohol is waving its hand it not that intrusive. Thoroughly entertaining experience, but also I found that itís tart and sharp on the tongue and so might not enhance my next beer. Iím sure Iíll live, and probably talk about how much I liked this .

Bottle: Pours cloudy amber with a small tan head. Pumpkin pie filling, juicy fruit aroma. Creamy, pumpkin pie, crust and spice taste. Vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon.... Nice, subdued heat from the barreling. An exceptional Pumpkin Ale.
