mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Pours a clear, ruby color with a tight bubbly cap of foam. The nose is of vanilla, pumpkin, wood, nutmeg and cinnamon. The pumpkin is apparent but not overwhelming and dominating the taste. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and spices help to downplay the pumpkin sweetness. The taste is semi-sweet. The malts add a bread character and the aftertaste is of spent cloves and vanilla. The oak character adds a nice lingering dimension to push it into a snifter and truly make it imperial. This is a really solid beer. Itís not the normal take on a pumpkin beer. The oak aging really did something unique to this brew. Itís well balanced and frankly, brilliant.

Poured from a 22 Oz corked bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark copper color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is a fantastic blend of fruit, spices and malt. The taste is a very nice mix of fruit, spice, hops and oak. A really good pumpkin ale.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 4.25 A: Clear deep amber color. Two fingers of beige creamy/frothy head. Retention is good for a beer this big and plenty of lacing is left. 4.25 S: Lots of pumpkin spices - cinnamon, allspice, cardamom, clove, ginger. Pumpkin meshes well with an intense caramel maltiness. Touch of toastiness. Oak adds another layer of complexity with just a hint of vanilla. 4.0 T: Perfectly sweet - in the moderate range. Caramel, oak, and cinnamon are the strongest flavors. The other spices mentioned above arenít far behind. Vanilla, toastiness, and a hint of brown sugar. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light to moderately creamy. Smooth with a light tannic finish. 4.0 D: Really good beer. Love pumpkin beers. ★ 762 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 17, 2015

It pours a ruby red color with a slightly off white full head. There is pronounced lacing as the head retreats. There are aromas of pumpkin, bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, other spices, hints of oak, and alcohol. The flavors present are pumpkin, bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, oak, and toast. It is moderately bodied, but fairly smooth. There is pronounced alcohol warming, but it is not over bearing or hot.

DocJitsu (1658) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark bourbon color with an ample, long-lasting beige head. Pumpkin pie nose with some underlying fruitiness. Healthy mouthfeel, which lends itself to the largeness of the flavor. Drinks like a Barleywine with a sliver of pumpkin pie dunked in it.
