A - Pours a Mohogeny Rust with a four finger tan head. This beer has outstanding rentention and excellent lacing. Good looking beer.

S - I picked up vanilla right off the bat. Pumpkin is present but not overpowering. Oak, bourbon, chocolate. Nice complex aroma

T - Great tasting beer. Slight pumpkin pie with a nice vanilla background. You can taste the oak. Slight bourbon taste as well. Lots going on

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

O - Nicely done beer. Very complex. Good use of pumpkin and oak together. Looking foward to getting this one again enxt year!

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

bottle (from notes)

I wonder how technical they got to get the abv to exactly 10.31? If it's true, that's incredible. Deep amber hue with an off white head. This is quite complex and just a touch too boozy for me, but it somehow fits the style. A lot of cinnamon, booze, vanilla, pumpkin flesh, caramel malt and oak in that order from most prominent.

Aroma - Definitely carbonated pumpkin, pumpkin puree, Vanilla, aged oak, cinnamon and citrus.
Appearance - Very brownish black with a big tan foam and nice lacing.
Taste - Massive fruity overtones of plums and dates. Strong pumpkin puree, oak, vanilla, slight pines and a continuous juicy pumpkin cream flavor throughout the palate. The finish brings a resinous creamy, milk, sweet yeast and sugar, slick syrupy pumpkin molasses. Overall, this beer is massively complex. There is the vanilla/oak overtones from the barrels and the strong pumpkin overtones work well with that. This is a really fantastic imperial pumpkin ales. Among the best of the style.
