I'm not a fan of pumpkin beers, but CCB nailed this one.

Best pumpkin beer I've had. The barrel, the spices, the pumpkin, the base beer are remarkably well balanced. Far less barrel dominated and far less boozy than most of these big BA Cigae City releases. Really delicious, easily surpassed expectations.

Bottled 10/18/13.

The aroma on this beer is so dominated by rum that if you blindfolded me, I'd think I was smelling a bottle of Captain...dayum! An awesome little element of caramel adds to the appeal of the smell as well.

Taste is way more balanced than you think it would be based on the aroma...there is slight vanilla, pumpkin and rum. None overpowers the other until the end, where rum is definitely noticeable in the finish.

Spiced rum, vanilla, oak all compliment the base beer. No one flavor overpowers. Dry finish, not too sweet. Very well crafted beer.

A true gentlemen's pumpkin beer. I hope to someday redrink this surrounded by books upon books upon bookshelves.

A: Barleywine-ish, orange and murky, swirls of ingredients

T: Booze bomb, pumpkin and desert spices, if you don't like rum, this may be difficult for your lesser being. It has arrived and it isnt going anywhere.

M: Creamy and delicious

O: I had this on the fermenter before anyone could even fathom such an idea, right before CCB bottled this gem. Perfect. Good luck finding it.
