Pours a thick creamy colored head (granted I poured a little too rough) with good retention and nice lacing. Clear reddish brown color, reminds me of the color of sweet tea. carbonation looks medium to light.

Some raw pumpkin smells, roasted malts, some of the cocoa, a little bit of the bourbon, a little of alcohol, some spices.

Flavors of raw pumpkin with light pumpkin spices. Bourbon flavors hit me more on the back end of the sip and then carry into the after taste, overpowering many of the other flavors. Not tasting much of the cocoa nibs or roasted goodness that I got in the nose.

Overall, pretty good. Almost think the bourbon aging could have worked better with a stout or porter, or at least with little more pumpkin kick, as the flavors kind of overpower that here. However I am a big fan of bourbon aged beers, so I still like it.


Second pour from this bottle is much different from the first. Color is similar but very cloudy. smells and taste of much more pumpkin spices. Much more balance, very good.
