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.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a clear dark orange. Half inch of head, not much lacing.

Smells exactly like Pumking- the usual mix of pumpkin pie spices, with a good amount of vanilla.

Also tastes basically exactly like Pumking. Would like to see more from the oak-aging. The oak-aging brings a slight oakiness, plus a bit more substantial vanilla flavor. A bit less sweet than the original.

Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Crisp and well carbonated.

A good beer, but not all that different from regular Pumking. Regular Pumking is great, though, so I like this one.
