Very nice, not too much barrel and smells like a pumpkin ale.... 9% hidden perfectly, the spices and barrel compliment perfectly. Would buy again 4 sure...

Pours a dark copper with less than a finger of head. There is some bourbon in the nose but there is also a mild smokiness that seems out of place. Bourbon notes stand out in the flavor profile and they merge nicely with the vanilla already present. However, there is not much pumpkin flavor in this offering and it seems surprisingly thin.

A - Pours a dark burgundy raison color with a thin, toffee colored head and very minor carbonation.

S - Bourbon, maple, molasses, oak - very thick aroma.

T - "Punkins", bourbon, oak, cinnamon, nutmeg, some vanilla does rise up at the very end but ever so slightly.

M - Heavy medium body, and some alcohol warming on the way down and turn the mouth a little bit into cotton.

O - I hate to say it, but this beer is a boozy mess. :o(

Poured out as a hazy amber color with a decent looking white head on top. The foam is creamy with a moderate retention and lacing. The smell of the beer is spicy and had a very nice bourbon vanilla aroma in there too. The taste of the beer follows the nose, sweet vanilla and bourbon with plenty of spice in the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth with a good body and carbonation. Overall it's a really good brew. Really enjoyed this a lot.

Revisited 10-19-15 from bottle:
Brown in color with a fizzy cream colored head, smells of wood... Lots of wood, some spice and bourbon. Tastes spicy upfront, fades into more wood, not much depth. The mouthfeel is pretty thin, it's drinkable but nothing special. Overall I feel this was a totally different beer from years back. Not what I remember at least.
