Since the review below, I've had many a Southern Tier Pumking. Each year it's a bit different. To me, this one was the pinnacle.
11/06/11 2009 vintage - BULLS EYE! This really hit the spot. Rarely do I order a second of the same brew at Rattle n Hum because they have such a wide selection, but this one just wouldn't let me go.
So. Tier needs to run this from Sept to March and then some.
If there is beer in heaven, pray they have one of the taps running this stuff.

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.

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.
