pumpkin squash soup, called for smoked paprika, sage, thyme, feeling lacks a bit of sweetness
I added a carrot before blended, but needs something...looking for suggestions to enhance, sweeten a bit, would a brandy do? or sherry, or another spice?

As for your sweetness issue, you may want to re-think your expectations. A lot of pumpkin/squash soups are sweet. But if you go with a more savory option, you may end up liking it better--for some of us, all those apple and maple and honey variations can be too sweet for dinner.
I would also consider adjusting the salt as others have suggested. It may have enough sweetness if you amplify the flavour with some salt.
With those flavours, you could also add cream, which while not sweet in itself, may make it seem sweeter.
