Most everybody else at Thanksgiving wasnít a fan, but I was pleased that the pumpkin flavor was manageable and that the oak was noticeable. Also, the oak flavors overpowered the alcohol so it didnít seem that strong to me.

Bottle. Hop and hints of oak in the nose. Dark brown with a good sized tan head. Reall nice, sweet flavor with plenty of alcohol strength and moderately hopped. Pumpkin flavor pervasive, melding with the alcohol. Oak notes and pumpkin work beautifully.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby red with a light head. The aroma is what you would expect from an oaked beer and is nice in that respect. Thereís a lot of bourbon flavor in here and a lot of vanilla. The malt doesnít stand up to it here. Thereís prominent spicing but I canít distinguish any one in particular. The pumpkin gets a little lost after the first pint which is a shame because it is well balanced at the beginning and it worked with the sweetness well. Itís a good pumpkin offering but not my favorite from Uinta.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Julios. Pours out a deep reddish brown with a big frothy tan head. Strong sweet spicy aroma. Somewhat earthy. Flavor is big and roasty, oak is kept in check. Very smooth and easy drinking. Alcohol nose is slight. Big and chewy finish. Not an everyday drinker, but definately worth a try.

excellent ruby brown color, with a finger of off white creamy head. Fall spices on the nose, complimented by a nice malt character and a hint of oak. The oak flavor jumps out first, and the spices some into play next, I love that they arenít overwhelming. The malt on the finish is nice. A very well crafted beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly clear dark ruby amber with a medium to large seized deep beige head. Pumpkin, soft spices, a touch of oak on the nose, sweet pumpkin and caramel. Medium bodied, big and warming, spicy malt and pie spices, a touch of pumpkin. Moves into some sweet boozy plum and prune notes, more malt and a light amount of spice. Warming alcohol into the finish. Tasty.

From a corked and caged bottle. One of my all-time favorite pumpkin beers, and I really enjoy pumpkin beers. The addition of oak aging really brings out the pumpkin pie flavors.

Bottle. Dark amber with off white head. Quite a musty and dusty aroma, spicy pumpkin as well, lots of toffee. Taste is toffee, biscuit, spiced pumpkin and a little wood. A little sweet and cloying. Ok

In bottle at Craigís. Pours a very dark amber colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of vanilla, cloves, ginger, pumpkin and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely with lingering puff candy, pumpkin and alcohol again.
