3.1/5 rDev -18.6%
650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Clear amber body. A fleeting off white head.
Smell - Super pumpkin pie spiciness. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Light barrel character.
Taste - Dominated by spice. Nutmeg bomb. Sweet and a bit of bourbon.
Mouthfeel - Way too spicy. Boozy. Astringent and dry.
Overall - Too much spice and not enough barrel.

A: Pours a translucent orange gold with about a half finger of pure white head. The foam settles in a decent amount of time and there is some solid lacing as it drinks.
S: The nose is nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, and barrel aged goodness. The heat from the barrel is there, but it doesn't impart much other sensory difference. It's mainly just heat.
T: This beer starts out sweet, but has quite a bit of boozy alcohol mixed in. I get pumpkin pie right away, but then the alcohol takes over. The finish is hot and astringent. The booze lightens up a bit as it warms, and the sweetness returns to the finish a bit, but it's still super boozy.
M: Medium bodied beer. It's sweet to start but finishes with massive alcohol.
O: I don't know what to think of this beer. It's so hot right now. This beer could use a good 6-12 months before being opened again. I don't know whether the brewers just decided to shove the Frog's Hollow into a barrel and straight bottle it, or whether they really think this beer is worth drinking right now. Sit on this beer if you have a bottle. That is my recommendation.

Poured the Barrel Aged Double Pumpkin Ale into a Belgian Tulip.
A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange witha half finger of off white head.
S - The aroma is of spice, with some orange flavors that hit the nose.
T - Well now, wasn't quite expecting this. It tastes like allspice, clove, orange, some rum, alcohol from the barrel. Vanilla mid palate. Interesting, but not what I thought I was getting.
M - Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Not as smooth as I would like.
O - I won't be getting this again. Not recommended. Get the regular Double Pumpkin instead. Good Luck!
