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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter. Pours a warm amber color with a slight tan head. Some lacing. Strong aroma of rum and warm spices. Rum and spice flavor dominates at first. As the beer warms the flavors really develop well and achieve a nice balance between pumpkin, spices, and barrel aged flavors. A wonderful sipping beer. Lacks the mouthfeel and thickness that you would expect from a CCB beer or a barrel aged beer. The barrel aging doesn't add as much to the already near-perfect Good Gourd as I would expect. I highly recommend serving this beer warmer than your average pumpkin ale.
