Shipyard Brewing Co.

Smashed Pumpkin Ale

Waited a bit to get spooky with this one! Boo! Orange sourdough, caramel glass, cinnamon-chiles, cardamom, and cedar with dark brown sugar, dates and molasses. Fly agaric lacing does the micro polka on the glass as mystic swirls of smoke trace spirals from the cream colored top to the surface skim. Cinnamon leads the gourd charge, sweet potato follows, pepper and black raisin buttress those initials, while darkened caramel fills the void of clove, burnt candy and BBQ blood orange before swisher cherry sweetness.

Smashed Pumpkin Ale

Pumpkin prominent, as are cinnamon, cardamom and allspice. Cedar Plank, toasted corn and roasted gourd. Unctuous mouthfeel that is rich. Maple syrup, brown sugar and malt, golden raisin, creamy pumpkin, chai latte, with a little pepper spicing up the finish. #pumpkinbeer #pumpkinale #shipyard #smashedpumpkin #shipyardbrewery #pumpkin #seasonalbeer #beer — 3 years ago

Crown Valley Brewing

Imperial Pumpkin Smash Stout

Headless horseman! Just a tonshure of cappuccino rimming the parameter. Bourbon, pecan and caramel, sarsaparilla, mocha, and toasted sunflower seeds. Continued root suggestions with ginger and more sarsaparilla, vanilla, toffee, burnt brown sugar and tinged cinnamon stick. The dark gourd suggestions still manage to surface. Sacrificial pumpkins consumed in tar-sand fires and pecan pie filling. The dark finish glistens like eel sauce. #crownvalleybrewing #stout #imperialpumpkin #pumpkin #pumpkinbeer #smashable #seasonalbeer — 4 years ago

Lexington Brewing Co.

Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale

White topped, not persistent, unctuous rivulets lacings reach out like tentacles. Vanilla and cinnamon standards shine, real gourd aromas thrill; warm caramel, sultanas, and clove-ginger. Whiskey barrel entry reminds you this is 10% abv, gingerbread, cedar, cinnamon, caramel creme, vanilla, clove and a touch of pepper. Nice work. Sunday dessert. .

Avery Brewing Company

Rumpkin Pumpkin Ale

Sediment rich auburn redhead. With orange-tinged crown, that shrinks to tiara to tonshu with a snap, leaving only a shrinking island across a flat, rusty pond. Drops of black molasses, cooked, glazed pumpkin, butternut and acorn squashes. Dark rum soaked Dutch chocolate and vanilla wafers and moist pineapple cake. Trifles sporting rum soaked berry and carry-overs of ripe peach and nectarine. Finally date roll, figs ginger, candied lemon peel and dark brown sugar to fill the nostrils with seasonal magicks. Actual pumpkin tastes here! Rich and filled with vanilla bean, Turkish delight, fig fillings, nutmeg, candied ginger, gingerbread in caramel and spiced rum, gin-raisins, coriander, allspice, coffee cremes, clotted cream, clove, just-burnt cinnamon candies, reduced cola, licorice, and orange liqueur with a touch of juniper. Strong, festive, outrageously alcoholic (17.5 abv) delightful, warming, singular and iconic. What’s NOT to like about pumpkin beers again? #Averybrewing #CObeer #Rumpkin #Averybarrelseries #barrelaged #oakaged #beer #bier #birra #ale #oakagedale #rumbarrelaged #abv #2016ale #Boulderbeer #BoulderCO #pumpkinbeer

Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin Ale

Candied, gelatinous orange slices, caramel apple, heavy oak masking vanilla until lemon oil rises up like smoke to obfuscate all but a maple-y burnt sugar aroma. Creamy bourbon into an almost brandy Alexander that explodes with pumpkin purée and accompanying pie spices. Gets very smoky, and peppery in a molé manner. Overly rich with brown sugar, burnt toast, coriander, orange bitters, marshmallow, Anaheim pepper, tree bark, allspice, rosemary, and a slew of other spices. A lot to finish with. Whew!! The pumpkin is there, though!!! #pumpkinbeer #jacked #crookedline — 6 years ago

Crown Valley Brewing

Imperial Pumpkin Smash Stout

Ever one of the better pumpkin offerings. Medium Chocolate brown with mere tufts of ecru that retreats to a spiderweb study against a black backdrop and minuscule pointillist’s lacing of an unctuous nature. Buttery toffee and dark candy glass with treacle and molasses mix with mocha and brownie warmth. Earmarks of vanilla bean and nutmeg with the finest dusting of just heated red chili and cooking coffee greet the nose. Initially, chili-cinnamon warmth appear then fade to espresso and bourbon-caramels. Thick malts, and licorice resins in raisin and date purées and beet and brown sugars. Vanilla is the finish with perfect Connecticut wrapped cigar flavors to make this an exceptional treat! #crownvalley #crownvalleyimperialpumpkinstout #pumpkinbeer #stout #imperialstout #beer #bier #birra #MObeer #missouribeer — 2 years ago

Southern Tier Brewing Company

Imperial Pumking Ale

Surprisingly light colored head that sprung up like a ghost and then shot back down to a smoky whisper. Rum notes with caramel cream in the lead; spun sugar, cinnamon and clove with yogurt pretzel and honeyed tea. Spicy entry boasts sweetness but not overwhelming. Pumpkin oil, vanilla, oaky caramel, cinnamon and bitter note that suggests charred pecan, and peppercorns. This beer is good because it doesn’t stay sweet throughout and instantly congers the autumnal spirit. It doesn’t get too artificial, borrowing most of its flavors from barrel. #pumpkin #pumpkinbeer #ale #SouthernTier #imperialpumpkin #pumking #beer #seasonalbeer #oakaged #halloween #alehallows — 3 years ago

Cigar City Brewing

Good Gourd Imperial Pumpkin Ale 2016

It is Pumpkin time Jack! Better than a knife in the eye! Warm creme brûlée scents ooze through the oily cedar spice and cinnamon apple fragrances. Creamy textured, baked pear and caramel notes with a vanilla finish. Cut deep and let out your inner ancestor! #pumpkin #cigarcitybrewing #goodgourd #pumpkinbeer — 5 years ago

Lexington Brewing Co.

Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale

I believe this lady has a year under her lengthy belt, comes off like hot honey, dropping a fair amount of lacing right down to its wooden floor of unmistakable oak. There is a musty funk beneath the perfume of biscuit and marmalade, but nothing unpleasant, just sensual and inviting you to steal a little kiss. Candied grapefruit and caramel cremes undoubtably led to her ample bounties. Soda bread, brioche and madeleines at midday.cream soda and cinnamon toothpicks poked into bourbon candy. Pumpkin pie for desert, but the thinnest slice smothered in whipped cream. The other ratings led me to believe that she chews with her mouth open, but this belle has been to finishing school, and graduated with honors. A little more of her, and it's bedtime. Lights out at 10%. #kentucky #kentuckypumpkinbarrelale #barrelaged #pumpkinbeer — 6 years ago
