A true gentlemen's pumpkin beer. I hope to someday redrink this surrounded by books upon books upon bookshelves.

A: Barleywine-ish, orange and murky, swirls of ingredients

T: Booze bomb, pumpkin and desert spices, if you don't like rum, this may be difficult for your lesser being. It has arrived and it isnt going anywhere.

M: Creamy and delicious

O: I had this on the fermenter before anyone could even fathom such an idea, right before CCB bottled this gem. Perfect. Good luck finding it.

Best pumpkin beer I've ever tried. Perfectly balanced spices and alcohol. Mouthfeel super silky considering the ABV.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter. Pours a warm amber color with a slight tan head. Some lacing. Strong aroma of rum and warm spices. Rum and spice flavor dominates at first. As the beer warms the flavors really develop well and achieve a nice balance between pumpkin, spices, and barrel aged flavors. A wonderful sipping beer. Lacks the mouthfeel and thickness that you would expect from a CCB beer or a barrel aged beer. The barrel aging doesn't add as much to the already near-perfect Good Gourd as I would expect. I highly recommend serving this beer warmer than your average pumpkin ale.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a hazy sienna color with reddish highlights minimal tan froth.

(S)- A warming and welcomed aroma of pumpkin pie overall. Bigger on the spice but very sexy.

(T)- Liquid pumpkin pie. Slight hint of the rum barrel but a sexy flavor overall. Nice clove component on the finish.

(M)- Mellow carbonation level meets an incredibly sexy balance and mouthfeel. The rum barrel really brings the richness up a notch or two.

(O)- A sexy pumpkin ale. Everything is in the right place and really well balanced.
