4.7/5  rDev +40.3%

A: Rich mahogany brown. Fairly dense tan head. (4/5)

S: Exactly what my bourbon pumpkin pies taste like. Mildly boozy. Big cinnamon, nutmeg, whipped cream aroma. None of these stand alone. All combine with strong pumpkin. (5/5)

M: Creamy, smooth. Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Small alcohol warmth noticeable (4.75/5)

T: Definitely a full pumpkin pie flavor. Rather sweet from bourbon and pumpkin. Mellow flavor. Restraint is nice, balance is superb. Graham cracker crust and whip cream tasting finish. Spicy and savory towards the beginning featuring cinnamon pumpkin and nutmeg (4.75).

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, pumpkin pie spice, and bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with pumpkin pie spice, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice balance between the spice and barrel aged aspects.

650 ml bottle poured into a TG snifter 8/22/2014.

A- Dark brown body, two finger white head. A bit overcarbonated, a bit suspicious... but otherwise nice lacing. [3.25]

S- Pumpkin pie filling. That's pretty much what it's advertised to be. [3.75]

F- Diacetyl, nutmeg, cinnamon, gourd, some bourbon. I guess technically butter is used to make pumpkin pie, but this just isn't that good. [2.75]

M- Thin bodied, a bit more carbonated than it needs to be. [2.75]

O- Not a very good beer period. But it does smell like pumpkin filling. That's got to count for something. [2.75]

Final score: 2.975

22oz bottle purchased at Lizardville Bedford for $12.99.

Smells like butter. No bourbon, slight pumpkin spice.

Taste is a pure Diacetyl bomb, absolutely undrinkable. What a waste of money!

Anderson Valley should be ashamed for releasing this POS.
