Served in a Duvel tulip glass.
Never thought this one would be found on my local shelves, but, hey, I'm not gonna argue. It pours a sunset tawn' topped by a half-finger of cream-tan foam. The nose comprises spiced rum, extra brown sugar, light oak, vanilla bean, and caramel. A heavy spike of booze keeps full enjoyment at bay. The taste follows pretty closely, with the rum getting all up-close-and-personal with my tastebuds. The spices and vanilla bean are strong as well. There's pretty much no trace of any pumpkin, save the residual spices that get lost in the pre-existing spice forest in the rum. And, once again, the booze is more than present. The body is a stolid medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a thick, syrupy feel. Overall, this was too much of a rum bomb to be fully enjoyable. If you like spiced rum, you'll love this stuff. It's not bad enough to be considered bad, but nothing I would really feel comfortable calling truly good.
