750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. Nice khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Wow it's rummy. Smells like a rum and coke. Some spiced character and a faint pumpkin.

Taste - And it really tastes like a rum and coke. Lots of rum. The pumpkin is lost. Brown sugar. Dry finish.

Mouthfeel - Not all that sweet, but very boozy. Dry and a little oaky.

Overall - Rum and coke beer. Tasty.

Bought at huna day. Poured into a tulip glass.

A- a deep brown with and orange hue. The head is about a quarter inch and goes away leaving a white lace on the outside of the beer. Doesn't look great bit whatever.

S- spicy notes with sone heat. A wheat smell mixes well with the pumpkin. Smells a lot like pumpkin bread. Rum comes into the nose on the back end. The smell makes me want to eat pumpkin bread.

T- the first hit is pumpkin. Not a ridiculously strong pumpkin sensation that some beer have but enough to let you know there are pumpkin spices in there. There's some cinnamon in there that cones through. Also sone nutmeg flavor on the back end. The rum isn't all that noticeable but you can tell it's definitely there. A very complex flavor.

M- smooth, like what silk would taste if it was made into a beer. Little to no carbonation due to the pumpkin and rum. Not very much heat either, which you would expect from a rum aged beer.

O- the best pumpkin beer i've ever had. Silky and smooth and a delicious blend of rum, pumpkin, cinnamon, and spices. So smooth and no disappointment.
