Not as balanced as other CCB BA beers. The rum is a little too overpowering. Too much Almighty and not enough Good Gourd.

Best pumpkin beer I've ever tried. Perfectly balanced spices and alcohol. Mouthfeel super silky considering the ABV.

4.01/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy tawny color with burnt orange highlights; not much lacing from the small head

Smell: Pumpkin and wheat bread, with some spice and rum tones

Taste: Bread and pumpkin with developing spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) flavors; some yeasty phenols in the mid-palate; the rum appears, after the swallow, and blends together nicely

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: A nice pumpkin beer with some interesting complexity from the rum barrel treatment

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.
