Uinta Brewing Co.
Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin

750 ml corked and caged. Pours a light amber color with off white, densely beaded foam. There was a fair amount of sediment. The head leaves plenty of lace.

Aroma of pumpkin pie, vanilla coffee, nuts, sweet caramel malts.

In the taste, more pumpkin flavor with sweet and vegetative notes. Caramel, toast, and nutty sweetness. There is hardly any bitterness left to the hops but there is a touch of citrusy tea. So many flavors one could forget about the spices. Cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg are just more layers of flavor here. Dry oak in the finish, and a likely culprit for bringing in the sweet vanilla to the party. Has a medium bodied feel and soft carbonation.

Overall, this is a hell of a beer. Deliciously sweet and complex, and the pumpkin base worked well. A touch sweet. Keep an eye out for this in fall. (867 characters)

A - Dark copper-red color with a finger of frothy khaki-tan head. Fades normal.

S - Sweet caramel and dark caramel malts, oak, vanilla, pumpkin, brown sugar, dark fruits, cloves, cinnamon, and some other spices, a bit of booze.

T - Sweet caramel and dark caramel malts, pumpkin, oak, vanilla, brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, other spices, raisins and other dark fruits, and a bit of booze.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a sweet, warming, and lightly spicy finish.

D - Great barrel aged pumpkin ale. Nice blend of spices. (562 characters)

Pours a vivid red colour, really quite shiny. Head is cream-coloured, settled out to a thin film with very decent lace left behind. More retention would be a gas, but it still looks pretty damn good.

Smell is quite pleasant indeed. Distinct sourness, in a bacteria way, not a lot of horse blanket to it, but a pleasant sweet spice as well. Largely cinnamon, with a touch of anise as well. Smells like a good Christmas ale, but with a light sourness to freshen up. Like it a lot.

Taste is also very Christmassy - cherry notes soaked in booze, with cinnamon, clove and anise, all with a big vanilla-tinged malt underneath. Toffee, caramel, touch of red wine and some rye whiskey. Macadamias, walnuts and figs as well. Yes, not a lot of pumpkin if truth be told (was served to me blind). It's a big Wintery wonderland. I want more of that sourness I detected on the nose to cleanse it a little, but there is a hint of it just dusting off the sweetness at the end. A very merry celebration of the festive season, but more of that sourness would make this a damn 'Christmas' cracker.

Full and pretty boozey. Gets a large, quite hot note late-mid which overpowers a bit. Could otherwise have been good.

Nice, sweet Winter ale - warm and pleasant and comforting. (1,259 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear very dark amber in color with some ruby red highlights and moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall creamy dark beige head that slowly reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of sweet caramel malts with some slightly lesser notes of pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg). There is a light undertone of pumpkin with some light notes of vanilla, oak, and alcohol.

T: Moderate to strong flavors of sweet caramel malts with some slightly lighter flavors of roasted pumpkin, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, clover, ginger, and nutmeg). There are light to moderate flavors of oak and vanilla. Very light hints of alcohol towards the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth with light to moderate amounts of alcohol heat and just a touch of dryness in the finish.

O: This is very enjoyable brew and is a little different (in a positive way) from the other pumpkin beers that I have experienced...really like the contribution of the oak and what it imparted to the flavor and aroma. I wish that the alcohol had been a little subtle in this one, it made the beer very much a slow sipper. (1,379 characters)

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Clear, medium amber color with over one finger of dense parchment-tinted foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Bright vinous fruit, baking spices, balsamic vinegar, earthy cereal, and restrained oak combine for a decadent and interesting array of scents. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins off-dry, with early cloves and layered crystal and aromatic malts that are soon joined by honest pumpkin fruit against a mildly acidic (carbonic; not sour) backdrop. Flavors become mellow and earthy in the middle, with aromatic vanilla replacing the baking spice. The finish is clean, short, and lacking in bitterness; a phantom sensation of cola lingers on the palate. Spirituous vapors are encountered throughout the flavor profile, but are never outright boozy.

M: Medium viscosity, smooth and slightly syrupy on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This strong pumpkin ale is a pleasure to behold; it strikes a near-perfect stance incorporating attention to the signature ingredient, a mature application of wood-aging, and enduring awareness that this is a beer. It remains capable of being enjoyed as beer, with a clear attention to details exhibited by the brewer. Hard to find fault with; perhaps its greatest transgression is that it remains a beer brewed with pumpkin... (1,343 characters)

A - Beautiful pour. Towering off-white khaki cap of foam hangs around with great retention and leaves excellent lace. Crystal clear pomegranate black tea body. A stellar looking beer.

S - Caramel, touch of wood, root beer, raw pie dough, pumpkin pie filling.

T - Nutmeg, oak, cinnamon, light booze, almond extract, great pumpkin pie filling center, mashed sweet potatoes, vanilla.

M - Medium body, with a thick and smooth finish.

O - A awesome pumpkin beer. Gorgeous looks, great flavor profile with an excellent pumpkin character front and center, and stellar balance. (573 characters)

750ml bottle - $13.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled on: 09/04/12

Appearance: Pours out a clear, deep, dark amber-hued body with a tall, foamy, yellowed head. Thin blips of sticky lacing on the way down.

Smell: Sweet-scented (but doesn't imply as much sweetness as comes across in the flavor) caramel, brown sugar, and coagulated dark amber honey. Toasty, crusty remnants. Squashy vegetal tones. Moderate spiciness. Vanilla, oak, and all the bourbon aromas you'd hope for.

Taste: Sweet, sugary tastes of caramel, cooked honey, light-colored brown sugar and plenty of toasted pumpkin. Also, toasted pie crust accents. Pumpkin pie spicing that's exacerbated by the punchy alcohol. Vanilla and stern, angry-faced oak wood along with the strong bourbony flavor (I know, it says only oak, but it feels bourbony to me) letting loose a strong wave of alcohol warmth. Speaking of warmth, giving it some time to open up helps this one, either that or the alcohol is just kicking in and making me a bit more agreeable. Candyish, spicy, boozy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: I decided to take on this 750ml all by myself, just to make sure I had enough. WAIT I RAN OUT ALREADY. It's fairly good, but I would still lean toward Pumking, as this came across as a wee bit hot for me. (1,328 characters)

At the time of this review, this beer is #10 on the "Top Beers - Pumpkin Ale" list on beeradvocate.com. Served from a corked and caged bottle into a tulip glass. Beer is dark amber / brown and ruby at the corners, big tan head of small bubbles. moderate to low retention, minimal lacing, low carbonation. Looks good.

Smells malty and sweet with a nice finish, some spice, a little booze / oak in there, mild vanilla. Smell is pretty big.

Medium in body, sweet throughout the palate, surprisingly a lot of pumpkin comes through in the flavor. Mildly enjoyable beer, good oakiness and barrel notes, minimal spice. It is a decent beer and I'd consider having it again. (667 characters)

A - Pours a dark ruby orange color with a one fingered, creamy head and light carbonation.

S - Pumpkin, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, oak, and bourbon.

T - Up front, pumpkin, vanilla, oak, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ending with oak, spices, and bourbon. Bourbon/oak presence is moderate but never overpowering.

M - Heavy medium body, lightly syrupy, gentle carbonation is light and prickly at first but finishes almost creamy.

O - It's a good pumpkin ale that has just the right amount of oak and bourbon without being overly boozy, this one works well. (555 characters)

Poured from bomber into tulip glass. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium orange-tan head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma has that telltale pumpkin ale note, with allspice, cinnamon, bit of clove. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, lightly bitter, notes of wood. Body is medium, carbonation is medium. Light astringence in the mouth, but that fades after a few minutes of sitting. Well balanced, not overpowering in the spice notes like so many pumpkin ales. Overall, a solid pumpkin ale for the oak aged lover. (529 characters)

750 ml bottle, bottled on date reads 09/10/2012 so this is a nice fresh beer, chillin at only three months in the bottle.

A - Dark clear copper color, a lot darker than I was expecting from this, and I guess also a lot smoother looking.

S - Initial blast of pumpkin and spices hits the nose, followed by subtle vanilla oak and hot booze smells coming in. Maybe a little dark fruit sweetness in there, also.

T - Wow, this hits you hard. Wonderful blast of pumpkin and spices again, and then a nice tingly flash of oaked boozey finish in the end. Strange to say that I am also reminded somewhat of the Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine which I just had a few days ago. This beer definitely does also have a strong dark fruit sweetness buried in there somewhere. Little bit of a hot booze flavor, but no where near overwhelming. This beer's 10.31% abv is masked very nicely.

M - Nice clean mouth, this beer goes down smooth. The malts and especially the spices chill out for a while, teasing your palate for another sip. The vanilla notes seem to slowly creep out the more this beer sits around at room temperature.

Overall, definitely glad I was able to pick this brew up, the first pumpkin beer I was able to review on Beer Advocate, although I have had probably about 20 of them this year, and 2012 was the first year I have ever tried a pumpkin beer. Definitely a winner.

Served in a teku
bottled 9/6/12

A- This beer pours a dark deep toffee brown body that is clear but dense. There is a bubbly thick cream of light tan on top and sluggish strands of microbubbles working their way to the top.

S- The deep caramel aroma is rich and blends with vanilla oak notes and some pumpkin spice hints in the finish.

T- The rich caramel malt has nice character that mirrors the aroma with some vanilla oak notes and a nice spice warmth in the finish. As it opens up there is a little bit of a bitter flavor that lingers and some ginger notes come through aswell.

M- The nice medium-full mouthfeel has a gentle alcohol warmth that is only show as the beer warms up.

D- The rich malt blends well with barrel and spice. There are nice barleywine characters, barrel characters and some spice notes that are all well balanced to work together to battle the winter chill. (892 characters)

A- pours a bright chestnut with ruby hues, small creamy light tan head that subdues to a small layer, minimal lacing

S- vanilla and oak up front, the woodsy oak is pronounced. Sweet brown sugar with some nutmeg, a bit of raw pumpkin, quite complex

T- flavors of oak and sweet vanilla on first sip, notes of brown sugar with some nutmeg and pumpkin meat, finishes sweet with some oaky notes. Flavors become much more complex as it warms. Overall it's a warming drink, but not overpowering, the ABV is hidden very well

M- medium body, barely traceable carbonation, finishes a bit velvety and smooth

O- beyond different that's any other pumpkin ale that I've had, very complex and surprisingly drinkable at 10.31%. It is quite sweet, so this bottle would be great to share. Overall very good. (794 characters)

Bottled on 08/29/12. Poured in to tulip.

A - Very dark amber colour; only slightly translucent. Two fingers of creamy tan coloured head. Good lacing.

S -A great mix of oak, sweet caramel malts and pumpkin with a big spice presence. Brown sugar and some bready malt aromas are present.

T - Very sweet without being cloying. A big brown sugar presence with dark caramel created a big sweet malt base. The oak presence is huge, adding woody character and some char. The pumpkin pie flavours show up as well, adding yet another layer to the complexity of this beer along with pumpkin, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg flavours. The ABV is slightly warming and perfectly cuts through the sweet malt presence. Very complex and very well done.

M - Medium, almost full body. Creamy and thick. Light carbonation. An absolutely perfect mouth feel. (838 characters)

We felt that an Imperial Pumpkin ale weighing in at an appropriate 10.31% ABV was a good choice for the evening. The brew pours a deep amber with reddish highlights, a big, fizzy off-whi
te head and decent lacing. Typical aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg, and spices are met with hints of oak and cinnamon. Bready malts and pumpkin dominate on the pallet and are well highlighted with the background flavors of spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Alcohol content is very well hidden and this beer goes down incredibly smooth. Lower levels of carbonation are met with a medium body in this BIG pumpkin ale. 'Tis the season... (610 characters)

750 mL bottle sent to me by radio2525. It was allowed to warm briefly before being poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip.

Uinta's Oaked Jack pours a pretty clear ruby red, with some lighter cherry highlights. Three fingers worth of khaki colored foam comes together atop the beer.Head retention and lacing are both pretty good, though neither is quite great. The nose has some nice maple sweetness that's counterbalanced by the traditional cinnamon and nutmeg pumpkin pie spices. The flavor profile brings in some vanilla to support the maple in laying down a sweet base. The pumpkin spices show up well in the back end, and they're complemented nicely by some earthy, spicy oak notes. The mouthfeel is spot on. The body is firmly middle of the road for such a big beer, neither as full as a stout or barleywine, nor as dry as a strong Belgian ale, and the carbonation has just a little bit of zip to it. I've found that brewing a high ABV pumpkin ale is a bit of a challenge in terms of keeping both the sweetness and the spice character in check, and with the aid of oak aging, Uinta does an admirable job here. (1,114 characters)

Nice frothy billowing tan head. Chestnut color body.

Smell is vanilla, caramel, light pumpkin. Sweet. Warm spices.

Taste is cloying. Very oaky. Sweet throughout. Good complexity toward the end. Bitter. Semi dry finish. Maple flavor. Caramel, butterscotch. Raw pumpkin meat.

Thin. Would have enjoyed a bit more carbonation.

A decent pumpkin ale. I'm not a big fan of the oak aged here but if that's what you like give it a try. The oak I think added to a cloyingness that I didn't really care for. (502 characters)

Poured in to NB Globe glass. Appearance is a clear dark orange with a generous amount of loose white head. Heavy lacing is left behind, nice head retention as well. Nose starts with pumpkin spices, predominantly all spice. Next is an onslaught of vanilla which is backed up by a bit of oak character. The barrel comes through and provides a slight twinge of mustiness. The end features some raw vegetal pumpkin notes. Taste is rather sweet with brown sugar and cinnamon among other pumpkin spices. The oak is incredibly mild on the palate, which is unfortunate. The mouthfeel is smooth with a hearty body and mild carbonation. Overall, this one falls a little short. The vanilla is nice but the pumpkin is somewhat bland and it seems that the oak doesn't do any favors for this brew. (783 characters)

Corked and caged 750ml, split with the bros and poured into a New Belgium Globe...

A: Very dark gold...nearly ruby...creamy off-white head with great lacing.

S: Very pumpkin-forward, and vegetable-like...hints of spices and small amounts of vanilla and caramel are really no match for the pumpkin in the nose.

T: Big pumpkin again, with hints of oak, caramel, some holiday spices, and suggestions of vanilla...there is a good sweet bready malt presence in the middle of the body that saves this one and makes it semi-drinkable...sweetness and more nutmeg-like spices on the finish.

MF: Moderate body with a spiced/vegetable taste and a creamy mouthfeel.

O: This one sounded better than it actually turned out to be...too much pumpkin is a bad thing for me. (761 characters)

Pours a dark ruby. Perhaps the slow way I poured this one, but no head to speak of.

Nose is rich and decadent. A pumpkin feast with the usual holiday spices, sweet malt.

Taste is very pleasing. Everything presented on the nose becomes even more rich on the palate. Warm, mild sweetness. Maple, brown sugar, and oh yeah, pumpkin. I even have sweet yams come to mind.

Mouthfeel dominated more by the warmth than carbonation. I like it :-)

Finishes with sweet moving into a very mild bitterness and a yammy type of finish.

Would definitely repeat this one. One of the best pumpkin beers I've had. (599 characters)

Poured into my Delirium snifter, Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin is copper with a tan head leaving foamy lace.

Smell is sweet, phenolic, like mildly scented pumpkin candle wax. Nice graham cracker notes.

Taste is rich, sweet. The pumpkin flavor is clearly there, high-lighted but not overwhelmed by the spices. The oak brings some really nice vanilla and coconut. The alcohol is spicy, and notably robust, a touch astringent. The spice really builds, more so from the alcohol than anything else, but it accentuates the adjuncts in a negative manner. There's very little maltiness here, which is missing from such a strong beer, with all the adjuncts.

Mouthfeel is bone dry. Medium bodied.

Drinkability isn't too high. It's a hot, fairly thin spicy beer. The oak is nice, and the ethanol is relatively clean, so it's not really flawed, it's just in need a of redesign - more malt, maybe some esters. (902 characters)

A - pours a dark ruby orange rustic color with a nice white head sitting atop it.

S - nose consists sweet caramel and sugary malt, oak, and sweet spices

T - caramel malts open this one up. These move on to a spicy character with clove presenting itself as the most dominant of the spices. The spices give way to some syrupy sugary malts that move on to flavors of oak mixed in with a touch of hop and pumpkins.

M - full bodied and smooth; a little boozy as well

D - This is a pretty decent pumpkin beer. The booziness takes away from this being a more drinkable pumpkin ale. (578 characters)

750ml bottle poured into a large snifter.

A: Pours an attractive chestnut color. The cream-colored head initially stands at about an inch and a half high, though it does settle after some time. It can easily be revived with a strong swirl of the glass. Small, patchy specs of lacing remain on the glass.

S: Strong nose of baked pumpkin, cinnamon, faint clove and ginger. Brawny malt scents of brown sugar, molasses, and brown bread. Assertive aroma of toasted oak.

T: A strong hit of pumpkin spice jolts the palate on the attack. Clove and ginger come off a bit strong. Perhaps nutmeg too. Cinnamon brings up the rear at first, but builds until it becomes the dominant spice. Brown sugar and sweet molasses. Slight toffee and caramel. Brown bread and toasted crust. Chopped, baked pumpkin far in the background. Slight suggestion of brown cocoa powder and dried fig. Spicy alcohol presence remains restrained enough that is adds complexity without becoming distracting. Toasted oak cuts through toward the middle and dries things out a bit going into the finish. Finishes with toasted oak, bread crust, faint cocoa and molasses, and slight cinnamon and brown sugar.

M: Robust body sits on the palate with authority, though it never seems too weighty. Chewy and very creamy and smooth. Low carbonation. Very slight heat in the swallow. It drinks very easily for a beer of its size.

O: I love Uinta's barrel aging program, and this beer does not disappoint. This is a big one, and seems to draw much inspiration from the barley wine style. The barrel aging is done right, with the oak character asserting itself without becoming too dominant. The spicing, while initially a bit disjointed and shocking, ended up melting away into the background to provide a nice supporting role. This is easily the heftiest pumpkin beer I've ever had. It's really hitting the spot right now, especially with the threat of hurricane Sandy looming. If you're going to spend a blustery autumn night sealed in at home, this is a great beer to have on hand. (2,041 characters)

Thanks goes out to pokesbeerdude for this brew.

750ml
Caged/Corked
Bottled On: 09/07/2011

Poured into a chalice a nice deep reddish/amber color, nice carbonation, with a nice little fizzy off-white head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is mostly malty, with some nice cinammon, nutmeg, clove notes. The taste is malty, slightly bitter, pretty close to a pumpkin pie, very slight oak notes. Medium body, ABV hidden very well. Overall a pretty tasty brew for over a year old. This brew was very very hard to get in Utah, considering the fucking place is about 30 miles from my house. This is not the first time Uinta has fucked up getting brew's to people here in Utah/SLC. They seem to care more about getting beers outside of Utah for the last couple of years. Not very cool. Thanks Chuck for hooking me up! (831 characters)

For the price I paid, it better have been good. I've got to say, it was really good. It goes down with a smooth creaminess, and that's rare to fine. I really enjoyed that aspect. There's a lot of clove in it, and of course the other normal pumpkin spices.

The appearance is gorgeous. A deep amber orange color with one of the best heads I've experienced.... no, not like that. I think it's where the creaminess comes from. It puffs up a lot at first, and then remains throughout the pint. It's all really great. (512 characters)
