Bottle to glass. Sweet label. Pours a deep amber color with a small light brown head. Sweet pumpkin spice aroma with definite hints of oak. Flavor is a nice mix of pumpkin, spice, oak, and even a mild sour. Light to medium in body. Delicious. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2013
750 corked n’ caged bottle- Pours hazy dark red with a three finger head. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg, oak, there is a sweet candy like aroma, licorice or something, vanilla, very nice. The taste is surprising, it tastes Belgian, almost like a sour, I think some bugs got in there! There is pumpkin, subtle oak which in my opinion could have been more prominent, vanilla, cherry, bourbon. Body is medium and carbonation is high. Great beer, a sipper, but very tasty!

Poured from big bottle. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, brown sugar. Good lookin clear mahogany with big lacing head. Pumpkin flavor leads with nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, alcohol right behind. Long story short - very much like ST Pumking, with higher alcohol, which complements the flavor and warms the belly. Well done. badgerben (5214) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Dark red color with a large head. Aroma of cloves and pumpkin. Initially a light vanilla flavor. Warms into a full malt and pumpkin canvas with moderate nutmeg and allspice. Quite nice. ASak10 (56) - Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Surprisingly drinkable given the ABV. Aroma of vanilla and pumpkin pie spices. The oak barrel comes through strong with vanilla and bourbon flavors. Delicious pumpkin beer.

From 750 ml bottle. Pours a wonderful ruby brown color, with a finger of off white creamy head. Fall spices on the nose, complimented by a nice malt character and a hint of oak. The oak flavor jumps out first, and the spices some into play next, I love that they aren’t overwhelming. The malt on the finish is nice. A very well crafted beer. puboflyons (3442) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 8, 2013
From the corked caged 750 ml. bottle. The pour is a beautiful looking deep amber tone with red hues as opposed to orange, which frequently accompany pumpkins. Moderate long lasting beige head. The aroma is not so much pumpkin spices as it is dark malts, black licorice, butterscotch, and a touch of booze. The body is medium to bold. The taste brings out those pumpkin spices more so than the aroma but it does have some punch so the beer goes right to my dizzy head. Moderate finish. jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Of the pumpkin beers, I’d say ST Pumking still beats this one by a wide margin. That said, this is still solid and the oak aging complements nicely with the spicy beer. You pick up the bourbon/vanilla easily. A sipper. arone12 (929) - Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Smells delicious. I get pumpkin, cinnamon, and some cherries? Cloves and pumpkin spice are all coming through. Some slight bourbon in the after taste. scottw86 (1177) - Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Poured a dark red clear color with a large creamy head. Arima of pumpkin and cherries. Lots of big yeast notes like a belgian quad. Taste is very flavorful with pumpkin and berries. Nice hop flavors balance it out. Not too syrupy and the alcohol is hidden well.
