The beer comes in a dark orange brown.
The aroma has bright spicy rum along with pumpkin spices of clove, cinnamon, all spice, along with pumpkin sweetness.
The flavor follows with a punch of rum and barrels in the front along with the base beer shining through of the pumpkin and spices. There's even a rind flavor in there. The spices and pumpkin flow well together with this medium plus sweet rum flavor.
An absolutely delicious rum barrel aged beer, and an even better pumpkin beer, quite possibly the best I have had..

El Cat member here, & have to admit I'm not wild about pumpkin beers, so this was low on my list of things I was excited about. But hey, here we all are. 750ML bottle split with my wife while watching Minority Report.
The pour looks like hideously pureed pumpkin brain: dark orange & murky as the Mississippi in high spring water. Smells like pumpkin gingerbread cookies. And that's all I have to say about that.
Good Gourd Almighty is fucking weird: I have never put anything like this into the sacred temple of my body. Follows the nose to a 'T' except for the rum: there's a strong cross-current of rum loveliness soaking the cookies. The pumpkin is light, thank the Great Pumpkin, & it is cut with a double-fist of spicing. A weakness is the heaviness, this feels like a glut of heavy oil in the stomach. Half a bomber? Probably a bit too much, honestly.
Interesting is the highest compliment I can pay this & the El Cat beers I've had to date have certainly been unique. This one is too heavy & deep to really hit the bullseye, but still a pretty good beer.
