750 ml bottle into snifter

Pours a murky amber brown with a small khaki head that fades fairly quickly. Smell is like a rum soaked pumpkin pie, tons of spice and rum notes. Great smell. Taste is rum heavy almost overpowering. Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, pumpkin and molasses are also present and go well with the rum flavors. Medium to heavy bodied with lower carbonation. Overall a great pumpkin beer that would be good to sip on after a big thanksgiving dinner.

Bottle shared with Beastmaster. Pours a super murky orange brown color with a half finger yellowish head that recedes quickly. Aroma is overwhelming rum booze--smells like white rum rather than a spiced or dark rum unfortunately--some sweetness, some sour vinegar. Sure hope this isn't infected. Aroma improves dramatically as this warms. more Vanilla cream and squash aroma. Flavor is not sour, thank goodness. Big time rum up front fades into a beautiful sweet medley of vanilla cream and sweet butterscotchy pumpkin. The massive rum up front isn't my favorite, but the wave of amazing vanilla cream pumpkin that comes afterward and lingers on the palate is superb. Super low carbonation, nearly none, and medium thick mouthfeel that I am not a huge fan of. Overall this needs improvement but that lingering vanilla cream flavor saves it and makes this a rich treat good enough for sipping. But I was extremely disappointed here and not sure what CCB Koolaid everyone else is drinking...
