750mL bottle acquired through the El Catador club. 25.00. Bottled 10/18/13. Served in a Cigar City snifter.

Pours a murky, opaque orange brown with a half finger sandy cream head. The head fades to a thin ring, leaving no lace.

Smells of heavily spiced rum-glazed pumpkin pie. Strong rum scent on top of allspice, nutmeg and distant pumpkin.

The dense layers of rum are even more present in the flavor without fully covering waves of pumpkin pulp, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, earth/ wood, cola, faint molasses and alcohol. Very flavorful with lots of rum.

Almost syrupy medium full body with mild carbonation. Rum and pie spice finish.

An excellent treatment to an already fantastic base. It seems a bit heavier, I'm guessing they amped up Good Gourd to stand up to the rum. Not quite as easily drinkable as I find the original but I'm quite happy to have tried this.

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.
