3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at GTMW. Poured cloudy peach with not much head sticking around. The aroma picked up sweet pumpkin, clove, vanilla, and nutmeg, with not a whole lot of bourbon (though it really didn’t need any more). The flavor found sweet pumpkin meat, caramel, nutty notes, and vanilla at the core.. more vanilla bean and tart oak around.. a touch too sweet, but still mighty tasty. Medium-bodied with fairly light barrel influence on the palate.. solid, but not great feel.. very good brew overall.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at GTMW 2012
Muddy off orange pour no real head. Pumpkin alspice, and nutmeg in the aroma followed by hints of vanilla (this smells wonderful).... Average palate. Vanilla bean dominates the flavor then a watery pumpkin and a touch of nutmeg. The spiced finish is nice, but the watery note detracts from an otherwise great beer.
