on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Aroma of oak and malt. Clear amber brown color, beige head cover, splotches of lace. Taste is evenly divided caramel malt and bitter pumpkin, joined by light spice in a mildly carbonated swallow. No hops are really needed in a decidedly long and and noticeably alcoholic finish. Strong, very warm, one I would not drink regularly.

[Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a deep dark amber with an average size lasting frothy tan head. Aroma of pumpkin spice and pumpkin first followed by caramel malt, light hops and a hint of oak. Nice flavour of caramel malt, pumpkin, light hops, light spices, some oak and a bit of vanilla. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium bodied. Fantastic.

draft that poured a dark orange color with no head or lacing. the initial aroma is of oak, bourbon, pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. the flavor was much more and full of flavor. omg the bourbon barrel of oak and vanilla hints plus the punch of pumpkin in your mouth followed by the spices of cinnamon. nutmeg and clove...blended so nicely together...wow..this is a high powered fragrant and delicious beverage.

This beer has a higher rating than the average but this bottle was aged in a bottle for two years after being aged in oak. Delicious.

I could smell this from 10 feet away. Good strong aroma of pumpkin pie spice, oak and booze. They even got the crust in the scent. Beautiful crimson/brown color with a tiny amount of off white foam. Tastes very oaky with all of the spices from the aroma. Strong vanilla notes throughout and no ABV detected despite the fact that it’s 10.3%. Very good for the style.

Bottle dated 08/29/13.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a semi-dark to bronzed dark brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated practically immediately. Lacing was mostly messy, and kinda stringing itself all over the place.
The smell started off with boozy sweet sticky pumpkin spices, ginger, slight allspice, and slight cinnamon. Light breadiness warms into balance it out, damn, and wow!
The taste was boozy sweet with subtle balancing sweet pumpkin spices really nicely. There was a subtle sweet boozy aftertaste running into a sweet sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with an awesome sipping quality about it. For a 2013 bottle, damn and wow, this one really held up, holy crap and a half! Yeah, the booziness is there, but damn, how it really feels, yeah, its not too sticky (cloying), but just feels real good.
Overall, recommend, damn right, I recommend, why is everyone turning to ST’s Pumking these days when there’s a stellar brewer out in Utah who knows damn right what they’re doing....oh and this is aged...I can only imagine what this is like when fresh.
