3.68/5 rDev -9.6%
Surprisingly light in color, a light murky brown with a very thin head. Smells of pumpkin and spices. Cake and pumpkin tastes are upfront with nutmeg and cinnamon lingering on the pallet, along with a boozy warming sensation (15.9% anyone??). The beer is a sipper for sure, feels real bubbly in the mouth.

Batch 3 / Bottled 9-Sep-13
12 oz. poured into Lost Abbey Teku on 10-Oct-13
Aromas of pumpkin, sweet cherries, cinnamon, nutmeg, burnt molassas, rum and spices. Just a little booze, interesting.
The spice and rum dominate the flavors. Whew, the heat at the end! It's great cause it's not boozy and doesn't seem like 18% is obliterating my senses. Overall, I don't get enough of the pumpkin and oak barrel as I'd like to because the rum and spices dominate palate. It reminds me of how Uncle Jacobs does the same; it's as if Avery just pours a couple ounces of the spirit straight into the beer just prior to bottling. Let the reader know that I'm not particularly fond of Rum.
The body is rather light than I prefer as well for a pumpkin ale, but I suppose the body's gotta be as is due to the high ABV. Doesn't come close to Almanac's, but still a great pumpkin ale to enjoy during the cold fall and winter months.

3.73/5 rDev -8.4%
Appearance: Deep caramel/copper. Head is off-white. Thin head and a small ring grace the top of the beer. Pours on the thick side. Very still. Slight chill haze pervades.
Smell: Vanilla, rum, oak, cinnamon and pumpkin flesh. Real pumpkin flesh carries the vegetable quality I love to see in a pumpkin beer. Sweet caramel and molasses round it all out. Decidedly sweet with a nice depth and complexity. Faint touch of ginger on the back. Oh, did I mention rum?
Taste: Rum with a pumpkin pie chaser. Cinnamon and nutmeg are in abundance. Molasses and caramel coupled with hints of vanilla. Oak adds a nice dimension to the whole thing. Rum really plays through and interacts with the flavors of a beefy pumpkin ale. Spice profile is on point. Malts are pleasantly sweet.
Mouthfeel: Nice and full with hints of something syrupy. Dry on the back from the big hit of booze. Carbonation is low.
Overall: Definitely a sipper, but a nice treatment for the pumpkin ale. The rum flavors add a nice depth that compliments the delicious fall spices. A bit too aggressive overall, but a year or two should make this interesting.
