The bourbon is still a bit overpowering to the pumpkin i would have liked to see a better balance between the two

Draft @ Liquor Express (listed as Alltech Pumpkin Barrel Ale) - Pours amber with no head. This one hides the alcohol well. I feel like it has one ingredient too many, but I’m not sure which one is the trouble maker. Maybe the vanilla? Weird. DocLock (11191) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Bottle from Limerick Bev. Pours copper with tan head. Nose is pumpkin, oak, bourbon. Tastes of pumpkin, oak, bourbon, cinnamon, lighter body, a bit discombobulated. cheap (6216) - CHINA - NOV 10, 2017
OK, so I had this at puff n stuff robinson. I wasn't looking for much since I have had many kentucky alltek brews. Well, on tap its a darker amber eye. Nose is sweet mellow aroma. Taste is a little boozywith a pleasant sweetness about it. Starts to mellow. Perhaps its the real pumpkie in thar. No? Not much co2. Almost flat. Finish is boozy medicinal fun. Not as difficult as many so called pumpkin beers. I get the feeling this really has pumpkin in t. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2017
(Draught) Pours a clear copper body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, grain, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, and bourbon. Flavor of caramel, pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and light butterscotch with a moderately dry finish. HighlanderOne (1396) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Poured from bottle.
Aroma of oak, bourbon, spice.
Appearance is orange amber, some head..
Tasting lemon (why?), vanilla, oak, some pumpkin, spice..
Palate is somewhat sour, with barrel and citrus notes.
Overall, this seems like they took a mediocre beer and threw it in a barrel with pumpkin, hoping for the best. it didn’t work.

12oz bottle that I let age for a year based on others’ recommendations. Kind of a hybrid between a barley wine and a spicy pumpkin beer at this point. Nice overall with some sweetness to balance the cinnamon and nutmeg spice. unclefrito62 (382) - Stow, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2016

Wonderful sweet malty aroma just wish it was a touch stronger, taste isn’t nearly as sweet as smell...smooth and lightly sour undertones that fade away slowly finishes dry not sweet... surprising GenDV138 (7900) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2016
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear orange with off-white head. Aromas of pumpkins, light cinnamon. Tastes of pumpkin, spices, light bourbon. Medium body with a dry finish. George999 (482) - Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2016
From bottle, the pour is cloudy and dark blind in color. A thick white head. The aroma is yeast and notes of sour. The taste is a little sour with pumpkin and a minor note of spice lingering in the back of the finish. The mouthfeel is thin to medium.
