I may be in the minority here but I prefer the non barrel aged version. The pumpkin spice notes are overwhelmed by the flavors of the barrel. Too much bourbon here for me.

Bottle pour at Evernote. Aroma is maple, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla, alcohol. Taste is rich and chewy burnt sugar, pumpkin spices, bourbon. One of the more interesting pumpkin beers but much too sweet and boozy for me.

Clear red with a thin foam. Pumpkin and spice on the nose. Great body and spice on the palate without being overwhelming or off balance. Oak adds a nice complement.

On tap at the Beer Baron. It pours a clear, very dark orange color with an off white head. The aroma has a lot of bready malt and nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and some veggie squash. The flavor is more oaky than the aroma with strong cinnamon, nutmeg spice, caramel malt and spicy oak in the finish. It has a big thick malty body with a spicy alcoholic finish. A pretty darn good strong pumpkin beer.
