Bottle. Poured a deep reddish-brown color with a moderate, bubbly off-white head that faded to a bubbly layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, pumpkin, light dark fruit (raisin), along with some light bourbon. Smooth, sweet entry with some brown sugar and a moderate spiciness (nutmeg and cinnamon are most prominent) paired with pumpkin flesh and a light dark fruitiness (raisin, fig) peaking through in the background that linger into the moderately dry finish where the oak makes its presence. Crisp, tight carbonation paired with a medium texture, the dryness on the finish does a good job of offsetting the sweetness. Overall, this is a pretty good pumpkin beer that manages to balance sweetness relatively well, unlike some others I’ve tried. Pumpkin beers aren’t my favorite, but this one’s pretty solid.
August 27, 2015 - with blankboy, jercraigs, mabel and guests. 750ml bottle. Clear deep amber with some floaties and a small off-white head. Aroma has pumpkin spices, but there’s faded papery IPA/DIPA alcohol/hoppy character too; not well meshed. Taste is a booze, pumpkin spice, dry grassy hops. Average body, slick, sticky, quick finishing; gets a bit better as it opens up - also didn’t (thankfully) get much bourbon character. cards04 (2822) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 8, 2017
One of the best pumpkin ales I’ve ever had. Great spice, pumpkin, and boozy aromas. Nice sweet pumpkin and vanilla flavours. Booze on the finish. Excellent. anders37 (26726) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2017

750 mL corked bottle poured, bottled on 9/8/14. Cellared 2 years, waiting for an occasion. Copper amber pour with a lasting head. Complex aroma fronted with oak, and with cinnamon, vanilla, gingerbread like spices, and chocolate. Flavor is a dry oak and vanilla. Spicy malt, a ton of pumpkin. Mellow bourbon notes seem to be created with this bill. Remains to be just a touch sweet. Explosive holiday beer with a ton of flavor. Oak dominant, and a very impressive beer as an overall. Very nice. ajnepple (6701) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2016
On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear amber appearance with a beige head and light lacing. Aroma of mild oak, caramel malt, toffee, light pumpkin and fall spices. Similar flavor, rich, malty and spicy with light barrel aged notes adding some complexity. Medium to full body with a lingering, light boozy finish. Interesting.

Alcohol content matches the yearly date for Halloween. The growler place I drank this at called the brewery Unita. Great, strong, tasty beer. cheap (5912) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Listed as 11% uinta pumkin ale, can’t be the dubhe or the la quinta, heheheh. Ever so slight spiced autumn aroma. No co2. Big and black, want to be large and in charge. Nice lacing. Sweeter pumpkin spices initially. Turn volatile. Impressions of addiction. Strong, volatile. Does not hide alky well. Gets in yer face. over the top. Too much brother. Not impressed, Tastes like a liquor in the end. Turns rude imperial stout in the finish. Almost invokes the gag effect, there is so much alky in this. This is not about beer, its about catching a buzz in the fall, HAHAAH!! AWISLguy (3180) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2016
750ml bottle from Sendiks in Brookfield, shared with bananbi11. Reddish amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet malts. Tangy fruits and berries. Some spices, but not too pumpkin-y. Much more of a strong ale. Medium to fill bodied. Some alcohol. Blend is solid. Finishes sweet and lightly boozy. For a pumpkin brew, not too - which is a good thing. Uinta stuff, solid as ever. 13.7 stevoj (5277) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle from Lulu’s. Nice pour, muddy brown with initial high foamy head. Woody , earthy aroma, pumpkin kicks in in the taste, not the pie spice. More barrel notes here in the flavor . Alcohol burn comes Kate, but finishes if off really nicely. Glad this was my first of the season, ad ill be burned out on them shortly. Well done.
