Uinta Brewing – Oak Jacked Imperial Pumpkin (2012)

28 Aug

NicAA: Thick head like a memory foam mattress, great retention. Clear almost red color, with big pumpkin aroma, orange peel and oak.  9/10

NicTM: Heavy, full bodied, low carb. Big bold flavors of strong oak, orange peel, some cinnamon and fall spices. Boozy in the finish. 9/10

NicP: Pumpkin in the aroma more than the flavor as this beer is bold in other ways, but it is there. Just hiding in the oakiness 2 pumpkins.

NicO:Big boozy offering from Uinta warms+delights w. huge flavors+oak edge. Pricey, so not your fall staple, but a great autumn treat. 88/100

AlexAA: glowing ruby red w/ visible carbonation and light tan head, tart pumpkin, clove + cinnamon 9/10

AlexTM: strong barley, cloves and sweet, dry finish w/ slight alcohol in the aftertaste, pumpkin is covered partially 8/10

AlexP: Much more present in smell than in taste once woven w/ complexities of the oak overtones 2/10

AlexO: the oak aging lends bourbon overtones to this Imperial, would pair nicely at end of a five-course feast or in front of a fire 85/100
