an above average bourbon pumpkin ale, it doesnt' have much to flavor of pumpkin, as it is masked by the bourbon, however, its still a solid brew.

Really clear light amber pour, small head quick to poor lace.
Smell of heavily spiced (and sprinkled with sugar) pumpkin pie, with a splash of bourbon (or more like baking rum essence). Faint stave, some citrus peel, peach juice.
As the nose, describing the taste feels more like a cooking recipe. Sweet pumpkin mash up front with lots of the obvious spices (lots of nutmeg, clove, ginger, cinnamon, some anise), a bit of apple mash too, faint banana, citrus peel and some faint nut. A hearty splash of prickly, on the brink of being mouth-numbing, bourbon. Caramel malts add to the sticky sweetness, but the beer doesn't feel entirely encumbered. Damp stave note in the finish, some oaky vanilla, bourbon dry finish.
Medium to light in body, a bit oily, medium carbonation. Aftertaste as expected, a bit of everything.
A nice seasonal pumpkin ale, a bit boozy, but fitting for colder days. A small "artificial" note (cheap kind of bourbon?) underneath it all, but covered smartly by the spices.
