The beer pours a murky, coppery dark brown with a thin blanketing of off-white head that laces slightly while drinking. The head coverage sticks around for a while, and there is no visible sediment. The nose is slightly peppery with muddled pie spices (clove, cardamon, cinnamon-like notes), but there is really no bite/pop to them. The spice profile makes way for smooth rum barrel brown sugar sweetness, pukey tartness, vegetal gourd, and a hint of booze (more prominent when it warms). The taste is a boozy pumpkin wash, with some tart barrel caramel/maple syrup, and muted spices. It's an overly boozy, medium bodied, semi-sweet sour with negligible spices, a confusing pumpkin profile, and challenging drinkability. I'm curious about what this beer was like fresh last Fall, but honestly don't enjoy what it's turned into.

A-Semi cloudy amber with some slight carbonation.

S-Good deal of pumpkin still, nice rum that seems to have mellowed out. Slight funk as well.

T-Starts with pumpkin nice mellow rum flavor with a tart finish.

M-Medium bodied, no alcohol heat, not much carbonation though.

O-I was worried about the rum barrel making it too sweet, but the beer was nicely balanced.
