look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

2012 bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a golden orange color that is muddied and hard see my hand through. No carbonation to speak of, lacing or alcohol legs. Not surprising considering the whiskey barrel aging.

S: Strong woody aroma, some boozy notes, and slight pumpkin. Wood dominates, with some spice characteristics coming in as well, subtle as they are. Very interesting smell, not the "air freshener" that Pumking is.

T: This is where the beer shines. Wow, its great. Wish I had the non barrel aged version to try next to it. Big pumpkin taste, despite the slight aroma. Woody flavors, really mellow and smooth the beer. Not boozy on the taste, with great cinnamon and spice flavors coming in. Some slight pie crust bready flavor as well. Just overall fantastic tasting beer.

M: Smooth, flat, medium bodied. Hits all the best parts of the tongue.

O: Overall a fantastic beer, and probably the second best Imperial (Pumking being #1) on the market. Love the barrel aging and would be curious to see others in the style give this a shot. Great beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz poured into snifter.

Pours medium to dark amber, with a 1 finger off white head that holds well. Lots of vanilla and pumpkin in the nose. Some slight clove, allspice, and nutmeg around the edges of the aroma. Hints of coconut too. The taste is filled with oak, vanillia and butterscotch. The barrel seems to overwhelm the pumpkin and cinnamon but its still there. Really the pumpkin taking the back seat to the other flavors works for me. It hads a nice touch of sweetness to a otherwise boozie beer. Mouth feel is medium bodied, with a heavy dose of alcohol. The aftertaste has a nice little burn at the end. I gotta say, I really like this. It's really a bourbon flavored beer with a hint of pumpkin. It's boozie for only 8.4% ABV, but that's what you tend to get with such a strong bourbon profile.
