Had this on tap at the 3rd Anniversary party. Pours dull orange with a smallish off white head. The aroma has quite a bit of spice to it with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove coming out, some sugary sweetness and a decent amount of bourbon. Not too much bourbon for many, but a bit too much for my tastes. There is some pumpkin veggie aroma as well. Moderate body with fairly soft carbonation. The taste was a muddled version of the aroma with a bit more vanilla to it. Interesting beer, but not down my alley to have very often..... not that I’ll have the chance to have often.

Draft at the STL Hops 3rd Anniversary Party, upstairs at the Schlafly Tap Room. I didn’t think Schlafly was pouring anything special for this, but this was left over from the Halloween party at the Bottleworks. Pours a clear copper color with a big off-white head. Aroma of toffee, cinnamon, applesauce, nutmeg, vanilla, brown sugar, and caramel malts. The flavor is mostly the same, starting spicy and vegetal and finishing very sweet. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. This has a lot going on, with the barrel and vanilla additions to an already busy pumpkin ale, but it’s very good.
