2.76/5 rDev -32.2%
Poured from 12 oz. bottle at Common Table. Much more rum beer than pumpkin beer in smell and especially taste. Smooth mouthfeel for such high alcohol content. Sweetness masked any alcohol burn for me - however the sweetness grew to a nearly intolerable level before the bottle was halfway finished. Glad to have tried this one, but far, far too sweet to order again.

4.4/5 rDev +8.1%
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. This was bottled 09/06/13 so is 2 months old as of this review.
Appearance: Pours an interesting semi-translucent ruby/oak/dark orange color and leaves virtually no head, just some bubbles that fade right away. Not even a rim around the glass.
Smell: Lots of oak and rum upfront. Pleasant hints of pumpkin, apple, rosemary, brown sugar. Very sweet aroma. Very in-your-face as well.
Taste: Big oak and rum upfront followed by very pleasant mild pumpkin, rosemary, cinnamon, molasses, brown sugar. Very interesting and impressive flavor profile.
Mouth-feel: Low carbonation, with a sticky whisky-like medium body. Alcohol is present in the mouth-feel although the taste of it is pretty well hidden by the intense flavors.
Overall: Really an interesting beer. Lots of oak and rum lead the way, but the mild pumpkin and spices shine brilliantly in the background. The body is sticky and similar to a liqueur, but is much easier drinking than one. Sweet and delicious - this is a wonderful sipper for autumn.

4.04/5 rDev -0.7%
bottled on 10/5/11
a - poured a one finger thick tan and fizzy head into a tulip glass that settled quickly to a thin ring that was gone about halfway through the beer. the body was a muddy brown color.
s - big rum aromas with some sweetness likely from the molasses.
t - boozy rum, woody, with a slight pumpkin taste. nicely sweet too.
m - creamy and smooth.
o - really interesting take on a pumpkin and i really enjoyed it. i think it could have used another year or so of aging as it was still a little hot but still a pleasant heat.
