Thanks to the members of El Catador Club for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Bottled 10/18/13.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, earth, and rum aromas. Taste is much the same with pumpkin spice and rum flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with spice qualities that are more individually distinct in the aroma.

No head really on a murky and muddy brown with gold tinged body. Aroma is incredible with very sweet caramel, vanilla, rum, nutmeg, pumpkin, brown sugar and cinnamon. Aroma is better than the flavor could ever be, one of the best smelling beers I have encountered, possibly the best. Flavor follows with a complex blend of fresh pumpkin, vanilla like I have never experienced , spiced rum, cinnamon and nutmeg. Smooth and thick body. Great beer. Would be even better with right food choices.

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.
