Halloween beer!

A- poured into a snifter. Pours a dark and hazy amber color with some orange hues, nice frothy white head has good retention and leaves a small layer floating on top as it settles

S- some raw pumpkin guts up front with some faint underlying cinnamon and ginger, there's some barrel character but it's very hard to find. Faint aromas overall

T- In terms of a pumpkin ale, the pumpkin flavors are of raw pumpkin, rather than the pumpkin spices. Bourbon flavors kick in mid-palate with a hint of vanilla, they aren't very strong but do overpower and flavor of pumpkin. Some sweet brown sugar at the end with a touch of lingering vanilla barrel flavor

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a moderate and silky mouthfeel with with a smooth finish, ABV is barely noticeable

O- I was hoping for a little more assertive pumpkin flavor to match up with the bourbon. Glad to try it but not one I would go back to

Poured from a cork and cage bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a muddled, hazy, orange-brown coloring with a sparse, filmy, off-white head that coats the glass as you drink. Aromas of subtle pumpkin, bourbon, vanilla, woody characteristics, and very subtle spices. The bourbon barrel aging seems to have overpowered the other aromas. Flavors are heavy bourbon forward, with all the vanilla notes and warmth that comes along with it. The pumpkin becomes a highlight, and there are only trace hints of cinnamon throughout. Mid-bodied, with a slight effervescence that helps lighten up the robust flavors and building warmth. Boozy and bourbon aftertaste, leading to a warming, booze lingering, slick finish. This beer is a bit off the map for the style, but a flavor bomb nonetheless.

A: pours a clear, dark orange with two fingers of white head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: oak, vanilla, bourbon, and sweet chocolate dominate the nose with some pumpkin spices underneath.

T: bourbon and oak are forerunners here as well with pumpkin spices and cocoa coming through afterward. Sweet breads, vanilla, and caramel bring up a lightly boozy finish.

M: medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is pretty drinkable for being barrel-aged, though is a little on the watery side.

O: an enjoyable beer overall. I wish there were more pumpkin and spice flavors and aromas, but what's there is far from bad.
