3.65/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Large 2014 bottle.

Pours red-brown with a fine head that leaves ample sticky lacing.

Flavor matches Uinta's description, with vanilla, oak and bourbon from the barrel aging, medium and dark malts, and pumpkin and pumpkin spices.
Weaknesses are a less than optimal blend of flavors and overly obvious high ABV. The aroma is not plaqued by these issues and, consequently, is better than the flavor.

Feel: harsh with all 10.3% evident.

Malty aroma has a firm pumpkin tone and some cinnamon, plus an undertone of oak. Pours a slightly hazy sienna with a light buff head. Flavor has an oaky overtone plus notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, malt and caramel. Lively, fizzy texture has a decent amount of body. A bit spendy, but tasty and enjoyable.

This is a unique pumpkin beer since it spent some time in oak barrels. Taste is a little boozy with pumpkin and some spice. Nothing complex here.

The aftertaste is dry and oak. I recommend this beer to try, but probably won't be buying it again.

Beautiful clear brown/amber pour with thin tan head. Aromas of caramell and spice. Very malty with the brewer-stated hints of bourbon. Not much flavor of the pumpkin spice, but extrememely smooth sipping and mouthfeel.

Hazy orange-mahogany pour with a one finger beige head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is a complex blend of spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, clove, along with hints of molasses, vanilla, and subtle dark fruits. The taste is extremely rich and bold with the barrel aging really coming through. Hints of cinnamon, maple, toffee, nutmeg, clove, oak, vanilla, booze, white pepper, and caramel. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a boozey, dry, oaky finish. Overall, this is one big and boozey pumpkin beer. The barrel aging dominates, and it's extremely rich, making it a sipper for sure. It was a bit boozey for me so I'm going to put the other bottle I have in the cellar and see what happens.

The first thing I noticed was the scent you get from aging an ale in oak barrels - which generally correlates to a tasty beer. This was again the case - even flavors all around - the spices, the pumpkin and oak barrels. A dark brown color, with very little opacity. Feels nice - a perfect amount of carbonation with a very light head. It's late in the season, however, I can say this is my favorite pumpkin beer, especially at 10.31%. Snag it if you have the chance or try it next fall.
