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

when first poured it is jet black. the nose gives off the pumpkin spice with a dash of rum. mouthfeel smooth no harshness. first sip was when the beer was still cold and i picked up the taste of the rum. second sip i allowed it to warm up a bit and i picked up the spices. third sip i've allow it to reach room temp and its full flavor comes through. you must drink it at room temp to truly appreciate this beer if you drink it cold you will not get full enjoyment of it. bravo saint arnold. i truly enjoyed this beer.
