12 oz bottle, about 2.5 yrs old. Pours deep brown with fizzy head that fades quickly to a thin ring. Sweet rum candy spice aroma. Taste is full of pumpkin spice, sweet malt, touch of vanilla and plenty bourbon booze in the finish. Medium oily slick feel. Good imperial pumpkin stout, aged nicely.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #89 (June 2014):

Pumpkin, Spices, Rum, WOW

This isn’t just another Pumpkin Ale with spices. This big Stout has been aged in Appleton Estate 21-30 year rum barrels, which bumped the ABV by 3%. And it drops into the glass black with a creamy coffee head. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices, squash, roast, vanilla, rum, and cake batter. Body is smooth, but also lively, with flavours of tangy molasses, char, coffee, wood, roasted pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, and dark fruits with a boozy rum back. This is a truly awesome, and most welcomed, twist on the whole pumpkin and spice beer thing. Find and try it now.

STYLE: Imperial Pumpkin Stout | ABV: 13.0% | AVAILABILITY: Limited
