4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle share at Proof courtesy of scotchzi. Opaque orangey amber. Zero head, but who cares? Aroma reminds me of hot cider: spice (cinnamon, clove) sweet almost burnt sugar, and pumpkin replaces the apple, but there is a touch of baked apple too. Taste is very similar, but a warm spiced rum comes through too. Thin-medium body with almost no carbonation; but who cares? Extremely well thought out brew, and yummy as hell. Maybe my new favorite pumpkin?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2-yr old bottle shared by Dave. Aroma of slight nutmeg spice, sweet potatoes, brown sugar and oak. Pours orange and sticky with very little head. Taste is pumpkin sweet spice up front but quickly vanishes into pure sticky booze. Non-descript sugars and slight oak. Certainly a party for the mouth but nothing really stands out other than the booze.

Pours a hazy orange from the bottle with no real head or lacing. Aroma is sweet and boozy, slight rum and vanilla. Taste is sweet also, but a nice cinnamon candy spice note. Burns on the way down, but still smooth, very nice.
