No head really on a murky and muddy brown with gold tinged body. Aroma is incredible with very sweet caramel, vanilla, rum, nutmeg, pumpkin, brown sugar and cinnamon. Aroma is better than the flavor could ever be, one of the best smelling beers I have encountered, possibly the best. Flavor follows with a complex blend of fresh pumpkin, vanilla like I have never experienced , spiced rum, cinnamon and nutmeg. Smooth and thick body. Great beer. Would be even better with right food choices.

Thanks to the members of El Catador Club for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Bottled 10/18/13.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, earth, and rum aromas. Taste is much the same with pumpkin spice and rum flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with spice qualities that are more individually distinct in the aroma.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy tawny color with burnt orange highlights; not much lacing from the small head

Smell: Pumpkin and wheat bread, with some spice and rum tones

Taste: Bread and pumpkin with developing spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) flavors; some yeasty phenols in the mid-palate; the rum appears, after the swallow, and blends together nicely

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: A nice pumpkin beer with some interesting complexity from the rum barrel treatment

Shared large bottle.
Drinks like a barleywine, with a somewhat thin body and obviously high ABV.
Overly sweet but otherwise good balance and good, if strong, use of rum barrel aging. Subtle pumpkin.
