On tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2014 poured into commemorative taster. Brown and hazy with a hint of orange in body with a few bubbles of tan foam floating around the top. Aroma is loaded with pie spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove plus vanilla and rum. Taste is like a blended pumpkin pie spiked with rum - moderately sweet with some woody bitterness from the spices. Medium-full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, boozy finish.

Not as balanced as other CCB BA beers. The rum is a little too overpowering. Too much Almighty and not enough Good Gourd.

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

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
