Finally a worthy pumpkin ale (though a pricey one!) Poured from bottle into fluted pint at Beer Mongers Portland. This represents a general consensus by the three folks enjoying it:
Pours with a nice appearance for a barrel aged beer. Light head that rapidly vanishes, low carbonation, nice black/brown-clear hue.
Smells mostly of baking spices and sweet fruit and candy with a hint of pumpkin. Has a nice fall, baked pie thing going on, though more of a rhubarb pie aroma.
Amazing flavors of pumpkin pie with a nice backing of liquor like sweetness. Really comes off as a nice after dinner beverage on the palate.
Full bodied though not overpowering, nicely balanced alcohol and tannins. Really lovely texture.
Overall one of the best pumpkin ales I have tasted recently. Compared with other Imperial, barrel aged brews I don't think it would quite stack up, but compared fairly to other pumpkin ales it's a winner!
