nuplastikk (4901) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2015
750ml bottle to the dome c/o Elise. Wow, the spices still dominate...would’ve thought the barrel would come through more. A monster of a pumpkin beer sure, but not seeing how that is desirable. Kind of gimmicky, not one I’d seek out again. There is some vegetal pumpkin that is nice to see in the style. Its a beast, but that’s about it.

Dark copper pour with a light brown head. Aroma is pumpkin, spices, oak. Taste is oak that mellows out the pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin pie in a liquid form. Oaky and dry. Alcohol is well hidden. Great lacing. Little sweet, and thick. IMHO, the best pumpkin beer I tasted this 2014 season.

hopscotch (9952) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and burnt-orange with copper highlights and a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. The aroma offers pumpkin, then vanilla, then spices, and then caramel - in order of big to subtle. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is a holiday swirl of pumpkin, sweet vanilla, caramel and a healthy quantity of tannic bitterness. Bittersweet long-lasting finish. Very nice!

chinchill (2623) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Large 2014 bottle. Pours red-brown with a fine head that leaves ample sticky lacing. Flavor matches Uinta’s description, with vanilla, oak and bourbon from the barrel aging, medium and dark malts, and pumpkin and pumpkin spices. Weaknesses are a less than optimal blend of flavors and overly obvious high ABV. The aroma is not plaqued by these issues and, consequently, is better than the flavor.
