Bottle thanks to Perrin515. Pours amber orange. Quick dissipating off-white head. Nose and taste of pumpkin puree, rum barrel, oak, nutmeg, cinnamon and all spice. Lots of alcohol in the finish. A bit hot like a pumpkin liquor. Decent as a sipper, but I couldn’t even finish half the bottle. Too sweet and boozy. Off balanced. Medium body.

MarcoDL (4128) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle. Orange copper color. Aroma of pumpkin spice, booze, red fruit and malt. Flavor is strong, with lots of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, booze, malt and a alcoholic finish. Really heavy, it’s nice, but would be better with less alcohol.

Why consume with pumpkin pie. It is pumpkin pie. Wow it is like eating pumpkins with cool whip. Thanksgiving? Crust and all is here. Wow. Thick on tongue thin head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, shared at RBAG by me. Deep orange amber. Delicious sweet rum and pumpkin cake, sticky and rich, warming but not at all harsh. Exceeded expectations-- absolutely delicious!

2015 bottle. Pours a dark orangish color. Aroma and taste are lots of sweet rum, pumpkin, and spices. The age has helped the hotness.

Pours a bright orange color with minimal head. Fall, pumpkin aromas with little rum barrel that gets better as it warms.

markducommun (887) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2016
Draft into tulip. Golden red-orange, light tan head. Mildly clouded. Allspice, cinnamon, brown sugar, pumpkin. Very sweet, maybe a hint of bitterness. Very upfront alcohol, but only medium to heavy body, very chewy. Reasonable amount of acidity. Reasonably oily. Pretty darn good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 bottle. Aroma is boozy rum, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Tastes pretty boozy too but still smooth considering the abv. A little overly spiced but not too bad. An intense sipper for sure. I bet I’d love this with a little less spice and a lower abv.
