From the corked caged 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on November 8, 2013.
It is a handsome looking beer with its slightly cloudy, dark amber tone that also glistens slightly red in the light. Decent beige head that fades to a ring.
Loads of aroma but not necessarily the pumpkin spice kind. I get dark malts, licorice, some nutmeg and cinnamon, black licorice, butterscotch, and a little booze or perhaps that's the oak barrel ester.
The body is medium to bold.
The taste is definitely strong with more of a pumpkin spice character than the nose implies with a definite dark malt and licorice feel too. It does make my head spin a little so take this one easy. One I will remember.

A - Good looking beer, poured dark with a thick head.
S - Heavy on the oak and smokeyness as well a hint of pumpkin and spice
T - I tasted heavy oak and smoke, the pumpking was there, but not like a schlafly.
M - For the alcohol content, the mouthfeel was pleasant, not something to have multiple of, something to relax over.
O - Decent use of pumpkin and oak together, probably my favorite oak pumpkin ale.

2013 bottle, poured into teku style glassware. Not too sweet for a pumpkin beer, which was nice, but a bit too much oak for my taste. Color was surprisingly red for the style. Glad I tried it but it wasn't my favorite pumpkin for sure.
Would have again, but perhaps in a small quantity.

Poured into a 16 oz snifter, bottled on 9/18/13. Pours a dark brownish amber with s two inch off white head that, leaves behind traces of lace. Smell is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and vanilla. Taste is largely alcoholic, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon vanilla in the finish. Body is maybe medium, plenty of life, a little dry, and a sipper for sure. This is a huge imperial pumpkin ale, that drinks as you would expect, like a fine pumpkin ale that really leaves it mark!

M - Medium to heavy beer. Definately a sipper. Has a pleasant bourbon type burn. You can taste the alcohol!

Poured a reddish brown (mahogny, leather couch brown) with solid one finger head that left lace ring down glass. Aroma and taste seem to have the same charateristics: pumpkin and nutmeg, hint of cinnamon, oaky/woodiness, touch of caramel malt and booze. I liked how smooth the beer is, how heavy the pumpkin and other spices come into play and the sweetness I get on some sips. The only thing with this beer is at times the alcohol really came into play and I don't think the booziness mixed well with the pumpkin spices or the sweetness so at times it was disjointed.

Bottled On 09/18/13. Enjoyed on 10/31/13
A: Pours a deep ruby/mahogany color with 2+ fingers of head that slowly fades down to a nice cap
S: Pumpkin spices, oak, vanilla, caramel, and a light hint of alcohol. Spices are fairly complex
T: Starts off with some brown sugar, spices (cinnamon and nutmeg are most prevalent), and a bit of light fruitiness. Oak and vanilla come through mid-way along with a light sweetness. Alcohol almost undetectable
M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Nearing on heavy
O: The base beer is nice and not too spiced, and then the oak barrels add a nice bit of complexity. Doesn't go overboard on either aspect, which is quite an accomplishment. A great sipper for Halloween and the fall season, if I do say so myself
