Had on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA. Served in a 12 oz. snifter. This one arrives a filtered, copper penny amber with no visible carbonation. No head is evident when this one arrives, with only a thin, white, foamy, sudsy collar around the edge and dollops of light lace throughout the experience. The aroma is one heavy in graham cracker, with sweet caramel barrel notes and hints of vanilla peeking out from beneath faint spice and melon-y sweetness - easily this beer's best attribute. The mouth is nice, but not quite on par with the nose - more pumpkin, and very smooth, with minimal, well-rounded spice (mostly nutmeg), hints of green oak, and a nice caramelly sweetness. The mouth is also well-balanced, with minimal and well-embedded carbonation that results in a gentle crisp feel. A similar beer to Pumking in many ways (which is the best pumpkin beer out there, in my opinion), this one doesn't show much character that can be directly tied to its time in the barrel, but instead tastes simply like ... aged Pumking. That's not a bad thing, but it doesn't necessarily live up to its name.

Finally found my review of this beer from a visit up to Al's of Hampden.
The pours an orange amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is huge and impressive in this beer, as I pick up considerable brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, butter, nutmeg and light vanilla. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but the sweetness and noticeable alcohol detract a bit from my enjoyment of this beer. Still, the amount of flavor this beer delivers is pretty impressive. Mouthfeel is is full, with a smooth, long, sweet, malty finish. There's something of a buttered popcorn finish to this beer that is intriguing.
An impressive beer, though I found that a little bit goes a long way. Hard to imagine drinking a bomber of this stuff.
