Gold foil wrapped 12 oz. bottle served in a Bell's Tulip. Bottled 10/5/2011.
A: Pours an almost brown body with dark orange a small, quick dissolving off white head. It recedes to a very thin collar, but doesn't leave any lace. The body is lively with carbonation though.
S: Smells like a rum soaked pumpkin pie. Crumbly pie crust, pumpkin pulp, cinnamon, allspice, a touch of nutmeg and some sweet rum round this guy out. Very interesting to say the least.
T: The taste takes a complete 180 here. Notes of caramel, burnt sugar, rum soaked dark fruits and some oak all shine together. A sweet spiced rum makes it's presence known in the middle and a malty vanilla sweetness that's almost on the verge of be cloying rounds it out. The is a great warming sensation on the finish, but it isn't hot. There is barely any pumpkin to be found.
M: Full bodied with a stick and coating mouthfeel, yet the carbonation is slightly prickly to keep the tongue interested. The taste lingers in the mouth for quite sometime. This is definitely a sipper.
O: This was a very interesting beer. It had old ale and barleywine qualities to it. The pumpkin gets lost in the taste really and I would have like more of the nose to shine through in taste. If it had a touch more pumpkin I would have given this a much higher score. Not bad, very different.
