Pours cloudy orange brown with a small tan head that fades into a wisp. Legs down the glass. Light retention, but pretty impressive given the high ABV.
Big sweet rum notes along with some pumpkin flesh and just a little earthy spice.
In general, I will have to say I'm amazed how close to tastes to pumpkin pie soaked in rum. Big pumpkin character up front which is refreshing since I hate "pumpkin" beers that are just overly spiced. The rum does a good job of lending some spiciness to complement, but not overpower the pumpkin. A decent amount of cinnamon with a little nutmeg on top of the rum spices. Not nearly as boozy as the nose although it is noticeable. My only complaint would be it's a touch on the sweet side.
Thick bodied with lower carbonation levels appropriate to the ABV level. Booze is noticeable, but hidden fairly well and I wouldn't have guessed it'd be this high.
Pumpkin beers aren't usually my thing, but this was an enjoyable over the top take on one. Would still prefer some other barrel aged things to this, but still very solid.
