750mL bottle poured into an Allagash chalice. Bottled just under year ago.

A - Pours a deep brown color with serious auburn highlights. A few fingers of head form initially, then recede away quickly to a half finger. Cirrus lace clings to the walls of the glass.

S - Sweet aroma full of pumpkin, vanilla, and molasses. Toasted barley adds a sweet and smokey character to this beer.

T - Begins with a big dosage of caramel, grain, and pumpkin pie spice. There is a fullness to the flavor that I liken to marshmallow fluff. I can't pick out any oak. Some alcohol heat on the finish.

M - Smooth with mild carbonation. Warming.

O - I found this beer in my cellar, leftover from last year's pumpkin season. I had no intention of aging it for a year, I just forgot about it. The emergence of pumpkin beers on the shelf once again jogged my memory. This one was pretty good, but I expected more from an oak aged pumpkin beer retailing for $12-14. The usual pumpkin flavors are there, along with a sweet caramel/marshmallow character, but I don't think this is any better than a lot of the readily available Imperial pumpkin offerings that cost around half as much (Weyerbacher, Schlafly, Pumking, etc.).

Hazy orange-mahogany pour with a one finger beige head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is a complex blend of spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, clove, along with hints of molasses, vanilla, and subtle dark fruits. The taste is extremely rich and bold with the barrel aging really coming through. Hints of cinnamon, maple, toffee, nutmeg, clove, oak, vanilla, booze, white pepper, and caramel. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a boozey, dry, oaky finish. Overall, this is one big and boozey pumpkin beer. The barrel aging dominates, and it's extremely rich, making it a sipper for sure. It was a bit boozey for me so I'm going to put the other bottle I have in the cellar and see what happens.

We felt that an Imperial Pumpkin ale weighing in at an appropriate 10.31% ABV was a good choice for the evening. The brew pours a deep amber with reddish highlights, a big, fizzy off-whi
te head and decent lacing. Typical aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg, and spices are met with hints of oak and cinnamon. Bready malts and pumpkin dominate on the pallet and are well highlighted with the background flavors of spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Alcohol content is very well hidden and this beer goes down incredibly smooth. Lower levels of carbonation are met with a medium body in this BIG pumpkin ale. 'Tis the season...

Finally got around to crackin' this open after a lengthy stay in the fridge. Poured from a 75mL corked & caged bottle into a Firestone Walker tulip. Bottle opens with a solid pop, indicative of a good level of carbonation. Beer pours a brilliant, clear but dark, orangish-brown with a fingers width head that is very effervescent and quick fading. The nose is very eloquent indeed. Very spicy with clove, nutmeg, a tad bit of cinnamon. As with moth pumpkin beers, I don't really pick up any pumpkin. The taste is where it's at. This has a heavy, yet still wonderfully balanced spice profile with all of the aforementioned players coming to the forefront once again. I wish the barrel treatment was a little more evident, and wonder what could have been with bourbon barrels. Surprisingly, the alcohol isn't very pronounced in the taste, but it rears it's head in the mouthfeel providing a bit of a hot finish. The spice of this beer lingers on your palate for a decent length of time too. Over all, not bad at all. This is a very decent take on a pumpkin beer from Uinta. I may not necessarily seek this out again, as pumpkin beers generally aren't my forte, but I wouldn't snicker at someone if they offered it. I'd extend my glass at arms length. Good brew.

Bottled shared with Sammy and Liam.

Beer is dark brown with a small beige head. Decent retention.

Nose contains spices - a lot of them. Pumpkin, obviously. Smells sweet.

Taste contains pumpkin, spices (nutmeg and cinnamon). Quite hot- very hot, in fact. Sweet.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Chewy.

Overall, pretty good. Too boozy, but not bad.

I love anything barrel aged and a pumpkin must be a challenging feat to nail. But this one is pretty good. The array of spices is present with added vanilla and booze. I would definitely get again if other imperial styles weren't available.

Poured into a 16 oz snifter, bottled on 9/18/13. Pours a dark brownish amber with s two inch off white head that, leaves behind traces of lace. Smell is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and vanilla. Taste is largely alcoholic, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon vanilla in the finish. Body is maybe medium, plenty of life, a little dry, and a sipper for sure. This is a huge imperial pumpkin ale, that drinks as you would expect, like a fine pumpkin ale that really leaves it mark!

Pours a medium red orange amber. Thin, coarse off white head dissipates to a ring leaving short lived lacing. Very light aroma of pumpkin, malt and very faint pumpkin pie spices. Pumpkin flavor dominates with some light maltiness, pumpkin pie spices, somewhat dry finish with some light oak, slightly spicy. Creamy and medium bodied. A nicely made pumpkin a little on the dry woody side for me.

Pours a very nice dark shade of brown with some light orange, and average head. Smells of pumpkin and a cinnamon but not much oak. Flavors mirror the aroma but the cinnamon is a little more pronounced. Nice dry use of the pumpkin and pairing with the clove. Overall it's nothing to write home about but it is a very solid pumpkin beer. Wish the oak flavoring would have come through more as that's one of the unique feature that attracted me to the beer in the first place

A: Pours a ruby/mahogany color color with a thin cream colored head. Some spots of lacing down the glass.

S: Smells like pumpkin that's been soaked in molasses. Brown sugar, yams, cinnamon, nutmeg and oak chips as well.

T: Lots of oak right away with some nice pumpkin flavor. Some slight hints of cinnamon and spices with some caramel malt. Mouthfeel definitely doesn't make this beer seem as high in alcohol as it is. Smooth and tasty, but not as much pumpkin as I would probably like.

750ml bottle into Duvel tulip. Bottled 8/25/11.

Appearance: Free pour yields a two and a half inch orange-ish white head that dissipates slowly and rockily. Pours a semi-translucent dark ruby and leaves sprawling but generally short-lived lacing.

Smell: Some pumpkin pie spice, gingerbread, and noble hops. No oak. Not very aromatic at first... pretty weak in intensity.

With warmth, some spicy phenols like in a strong BSPA come out, along with booziness and more noble hops. Smells like a cross between a pilsner, a BSPA, and a pumpkin beer. Not something you encounter every day...

Deeper into the bottle, the smell remains odd, but a very nice vanilla oak note emerges and somehow ties everything together. Huh.

Taste: First sip: confusing. Kind of pumpkin pie spice and thick, semi-tangy flavor (hops? malt? both?) up front, a much thicker taste than I expected. Resolves to some oak and a Euro pale lager-y tang. Second sip has a creamy feel up front, with a blast of pumpkin pie flavors like music that's a few notches too loud, leading to a smoother, much more oak forward finish, with a standard pumpkin beer aftertaste. Beginning to wrap my head around the beer.

The other beers in Uinta's Crooked Line series are, in my opinion, great, but they're only "crooked / off-centered / weird / etc" to people who aren't big into craft beer (Bourbon barrel aged barleywine? Super high gravity bourbon barrel aged stout? Not very out of the ordinary). Oak Jacked however... this is a genuinely weird beer.

There's some strangely Belgian yeast-y flavor with a faint phenolic quality, lots of somewhat messy pumpkin pie spice, with oak occasionally shining through like a soloist in an orchestra. My worry going into this beer was "Oak and pumpkin? Makes no sense..." but that's the *least* strange thing happening here. It's tangy, slightly fruity, sometimes banana-like, sometimes gingerbread, often dominated by what seems to be a huge flavor addition of German hops.

I can't say that the final beer really makes sense, but it's certainly interesting. It flies too close to the sun, no doubt, but even without balance (or even intelligibility), it tastes good at the very least.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Varies between juicy and creamy, giving the impression of a lighter and fuller body, respectively. Carbonation level is perfect; you don't notice it, but it's doing its job. Not dry at all. Tangy, and a little succulent. Not as strange a feel as it is a taste, but strange enough.

Overall: The label says that Jacked is cranked up and primed to celebrate. The implication, along with being in the "Crooked Line" series, is that this a big crazy beer. The label is telling the truth.

I could give this anywhere from a 2.0 to a 4.0 in overall. It's as if the brewers took the ideas of balance and cohesion and scoffed heartily. A lot of the flavors clash and are not well developed, but in the end I'm won over by the beer. The oak flavors are truly delicious, and the strange melange of spice, hops, malt, and yeast flavors are continually interesting.

I like a good crazy experiment beer now and then.

A - Good looking beer, poured dark with a thick head.

S - Heavy on the oak and smokeyness as well a hint of pumpkin and spice

T - I tasted heavy oak and smoke, the pumpking was there, but not like a schlafly.

M - For the alcohol content, the mouthfeel was pleasant, not something to have multiple of, something to relax over.

O - Decent use of pumpkin and oak together, probably my favorite oak pumpkin ale.

Poured from a cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is a vibrant, dark, ruby-orange coloring with a tall, frothy, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin, oak, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg, and booze. Heavy nose. Flavors are rich and spiced forward, with pumpkin heaviness and boozy highlights. Wow, this is rich and robust. After the blast of heaping pumpkin, there is a spice blend build that cuts all the rich layers to provide some levity. The palate actually lightens rapidly after all that initial massiveness, leading into a mostly balanced sweet, rich, and spicy pumpkin bread aftertaste, with booze and vanilla overtones. The body is robust, slick, and heavy. Slick, lingering spice finish. This beer is massive.

750 ml was poured into a mini nonic.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Oak, pumpkin, caramel, bready, sugar, warm alcohol, vanilla, and spice.

Taste: Same as above. Got better when it warmed up. Flavors were still hard to detect.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and warm boozy alcohol.

Overall: This beer could age a bit longer to mellow out. Pumpkin flavors are a bit hard to pick up due to the oak. Still a solid beer though.

A - pours a dark ruby orange rustic color with a nice white head sitting atop it.

S - nose consists sweet caramel and sugary malt, oak, and sweet spices

T - caramel malts open this one up. These move on to a spicy character with clove presenting itself as the most dominant of the spices. The spices give way to some syrupy sugary malts that move on to flavors of oak mixed in with a touch of hop and pumpkins.

M - full bodied and smooth; a little boozy as well

D - This is a pretty decent pumpkin beer. The booziness takes away from this being a more drinkable pumpkin ale.

Picked up a bottle of this at Stateline last weekend. Bottled on 08/26/11. Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a slightly transparent amber-copper color with two fingers of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Spotty lacing left on the glass and head lasts for a few minutes.

s - Smells of spices, oak, pumpkin, cinnamon, and light nutmeg. Not bad at all, but heavy on the spices. Little more pumpkin coming out as I let it warm up.

t - Tastes of pumpkin, oak, bready malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices. More pumpkin and less spices than the nose; a step up for me.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Smooth, and pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty good pumpkin ale; not my favorite, but good. Nose is dominated by the spices, but the pumpkin comes out more in the taste. Girlfriend like it a lot, would have it again.

Bottled September 18, 2013 and enjoyed November 22, 2015 in pint glass.

Look - I thought I would need to pour it aggressively to get any head but was wrong. Poured a second glass down the side to get slightly less than a finger of tan head. Head that is there does stick around. Clear amber/clay color. A little sediment.

Smell - Bourbon. Pumpkin. Cinnamon. Vanilla. Cherry.

Taste - Two years did this beer well BUT it is still a pumpkin beer. Cinnamon. Booze. Pumpkin.

Feel - It sits much better than fresh pumpkin beers I've had. Smooth and creamy. Carbonation doesn't really translate to the feel.

Overall - This bottle was a little over two years old. It is still a pumpkin beer but I like the subdued taste with aging.

750 ML corked and caged bottle poured into snifter, while watching World War Z...

A- Very nice looking beer. The color is a deep dark amber with a ruby red hue. An off-white head that seems to fall just as fast as it rises. The bubbly lacey film sticks around for days.

S- Smells like a deeply complex brew. I can maybe smell some wood from the barrel, the alcohol is there, I smell faint mandarin oranges, burnt toffee, some vanilla, some hops. I'm not smelling any pumpkin or spices however. After getting halfway through the bottle, a small amount of pumpkin scent was picked up.

T- Hot, boozy, alcohol, a small amount of hops...not what I expected. It tastes more like a really strong, fresh barley wine, although it's not hoppy or really malty either. When agitated in my mouth there is a very small hint of of what may be an artificial pumpkin taste...absolutely no spices. I would have never guessed this was a pumpkin beer.

M- The mouthfeel is a little chewy. Thank god for some body in this brew. It is so hot that it needs to be this thick. Its not syrupy. I think the mouthfeel matches up well.

O- I have had over 25 different pumpkin beers so far this fall. This was the number one beer on my list to try and I waited and waited for it to hit the shelves here. I have to say I am slightly disappointed. I love barley-wines (especially Cockeyed Cooper, another offering in Uinta's "Crooked" line-up) so I didn't really dislike this beer. However, there were no aspects of a pumpkin beer. This beer was not true to the style. I think this is one of the rare cases of pumpkin ales that can actually be aged for a year+ and be better since there arent any subtle flavors one might be concerned about losing over time. If anything a year or two would take the edge off and mellow it out. I think the concern with aging pumpkin ales is that the delicate pumpkin flavor and spices start to fade over time. I suspect that's why the majority of the "imperial" pumpkin ales you see are in the 8% range. At 8% ABV you can still create a well balanced, complex pumpkin ale with all the typical flavors and spices, but still have that extra kick without being over the top. This beer unfortunately is just a boozy mess. But, with some age, I could see this ending up as a very enjoyable and drinkable treat...just don't expect any pumpkin flavors.

Sampled again from same batch, one year later on 10/4/14 at annual pumpkin tasting party...

Much smoother and tame as I suspected. Warm vanilla and brown sugar came through. Tasted much like a strong English Barleywine. This could still go a couple more years and probably be even better. Still, the booziness (although still there) was much less than when it was fresh. I enjoyed this...but back to my original review from a year ago. It's lacking on the pumpkin!

2013 bottle, poured into teku style glassware. Not too sweet for a pumpkin beer, which was nice, but a bit too much oak for my taste. Color was surprisingly red for the style. Glad I tried it but it wasn't my favorite pumpkin for sure.

Would have again, but perhaps in a small quantity.

Pours a mahogany red with a nice head. Smells of plum, alcohol, caramel. Tastes kind of like a light barleywine, some sweetness, a little tart, I get some vanilla and then the pumpkin spices show up in the finish. There's a pretty good alcohol presence and some burn. Kind of full bodied, maybe a little too much carbonation, seems like there's a little CO2 burn. Overall, good brew, might be better with a little age on it.

Bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a tulip at Katie's Hallowe'en party. Bottle dated 8/26/2011.

A - Transparent dark caramel brown body, topped by a finger-plus of light tan foam that settles to a thick collar, a few wispy patches, and no lace.

S - Pumpkin spices, vanilla, caramel malts, brown sugar, molasses, molasses, roasted grains, light oak, and as it warms a boozy bourbon note that reveals the 10.31% ABV (hardy har har.

T - The taste is a bit of a step back unfortunately - the malt flavors became a bit cloying after a while and I got a lot of harsh oak character in the finish. However, the initial flavor is quite pleasant, and I appreciate the conservative use of pumpkin pie spices. Very rich pumpkin pie flavor.

M - Chewyfull body, lower carbonation, oak and tannic finish that reveals both barrel and pumpkin flesh. Some alcohol warmth is present, but nothing shocking.

D - A beer that is probably best served in 4oz glasses paired with dessert. Definitely one of the strongest offerings I've had in this style, but not something I urgently need to revisit.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: after pouring, it presented dark brown sugar in color. The foam is thick and dense, it had a slight yellowish/orange tint color.

Smell: mostly pumpkin pie spices - cinnamon and cloves, blended with sweet malt of the beer. Not sure if this beer was aged in bourbon barrels or something different? There's nothing in this smell that I could detect from the barrel-aging. But still the smell is decent.

Taste: very sweet, its liquid custard dessert. Vanilla, pumpkin pie spices, burnt brown sugar and some raisiny dark fruit. But then the sweetness is cut off with a charred finish at the end which I don't care for. Not sure if this is from the barrel-aging?

Mouthfeel: very chewing and sticky. Hard to believe considering it's only 10.3%.

Overall: the beer is good, I love the spicy aroma and the decadent taste at the beginning. The only thing I don't care for is the charred finish. It comes out of nowhere after enjoying the dessert like characters.

Appearance -- Pours a burgundian shade of red with a slim creamy beige head. Wide bands of lace. Looks a bit dark, but nice.

Smell -- Very spice-forward with nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. Pumpkin puree, oaky vanillin, and sweet KY bourbon round out the aroma.

Taste -- Like many pumpkin ales, this is driven by pie spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. The pumpkin character is mild, not nearly as evident as in the nose. The bourbon character is fairly strong: sweet and hot liquor, mild wet oak and vanillin. It's a bit hot, but not terribly distracting. The barrel characteristics seem to cover up the nuance of the pumpkin flesh.

Mouthfeel -- Medium-full with medium fluffy carbonation.

Overall -- Not bad. I wouldn't call this an exceptional pumpkin ale, but definitely better than average. I would like to have tasted this without the barrel treatment.

S-creamy pumpkin. Some brown spices. Hint of oak. Medium to good strength.

T-comes in with a bitter taste and boozey taste of roasted pumpkin. Mostly bitter and booze though. The after-taste is pretty much all bitter and booze. Not very well balanced.

M-heavy. creamy carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O-quite disappointed with this one. Tastes like a boozey DFH Punkin. Not getting the oak that I was looking forward to.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet. Bottled 7 September 2011.

A: A finger of creamy head and decent lace. Deep ruby-auburn.

S: Spicy pumpkin and lightly tart wine-like scents. Heavy clove.

T/M: It's good. But not great. Light and thin, but the spice takes the place of carbonation in pleasing the mouth. Noticeable oak which I believe contributes to the wineiness. Pumpkin pops up strongly on the end taste. Spice is, at times, a touch heavy.

O: Good pumpkin beer. Mediocre Crooked Line. Would drink again. Tentatively recommended.

17 October 2012 EDIT: Poured from a 750mL bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet. Bottled 24 August 2012.

4.5A: No change.

4S: More strongly spicy (more allspice and nutmeg than clove) and pumpkiny than last's years.

4.5T/4M: MUCH better. Thick, smooth, and creamy. Sweet pumpkin fruit mingles with more tempered spice, but still has a touch of pucker right on the endtaste. I really enjoy it.

4O: Great pumpkin beer. From what I can tell, definitely one to drink fresh. From this bottle, recommended without reservation.
