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.

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!

Poured into a snifter.

3.0 A: Murky orange-tinted brown color. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is lacking, but a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Pumpkin spiciness is most noticeable. It's a mix of all the usual suspects - allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, maybe some clove, but nothing stand out among them. A light leathery bourbon component complements the pumpkin well. Caramel maltiness from the base with a faint toastiness. It's good, but it could use some more strength.

3.75 T: Taste is pretty much like the nose. Pumpkin spice, pumpkin, leathery bourbon, mild warming booziness, caramel malt.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess. Could use more body, but overall it's okay.

3.5 D: Good pumpkin beer, just not a great one. I like big spices, deep rich maltiness, and plenty of body. This doesn't have any of those, but everything else is done well.
