On tap at Yardhouse in San Diego. Pours a very dark clear amber. Thin off white head. Aroma is slight pumpkin. Vanilla. Flavor is really nice. The pumpkin is there but also bourbon vanilla oak. Really complex but it seems to work. Thinner bodied. Alcohol is noticeable. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a deep, clear ruby red color with an average-sized foamy white head with shorter retention, but good cling and lacing. The beer had a strong oak barrel aroma with notes of caramel, bourbon, pumpkin, and various spices, and a bit of vanilla. Its taste was a fairly bitter oak barrel flavor mixed with bourbon and a bit of sweetness from vanilla, along with some undertones of pumpkin and spice. The beer had a fairly thick but dry mouthfeel with a noticeable alcohol presence and pretty strong carbonation. Thank you to Eric and Kristin for the generous prize, and to Siobhan for sharing!

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.
