2.6/5  rDev -33.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A: About one finger of white head builds up on top of a brown-orange body that is slightly hazy. It's darker than the Farmhouse Pumpkin, which I had just a few hours prior, but generally looks the same. The bubbles don't raise up any faster in this one than they did before, either. 3.5

S: The aroma is extremely sweet, as most all of the spices seem to have been left behind in the barrel. It's mostly rum, but there is some pumpkin lingering underneath. I'm worried about how boozy this might taste. 3

T: My fears of booziness were well placed as Rum Pumpkin knocks you over the face with it. The taste starts out with rum, gives you some rum in the middles, blends in a slight amount of pumpkin, and then finishes with booze. The only spices that hang around were probably imparted from the rum barrel, as they seem to have a completely different complexity than was highlighted in the Farmhouse Pumpkin. The sweetness takes the stage here, vice the spices before, which isn't bad. I'm just not sure that this is balanced enough to stand up to its already unbalanced base. 2.5

MF: The taste is light and just as undercarbonated as its base beer. The aftertaste is all rum, so if you like rum then you're good to go. But otherwise, you probably should stay far away. The boozy finish makes it tough to finish the glass that I have. 2

Value: Again, the release of this bottling went off without a hook. At $15 per 750ml bottle, it's a bit pricey. But, with the track record of Hardywood it's always worth it. 4

O: I was disappointed in this one more than the Farmhouse Pumpkin. It's not a bad beer, but it certainly isn't one I plan to buy another of. I think that this spent too much time in the barrels, as the tastes that I enjoyed in the base beer are all gone. 2.5
