3rd March 2012
15.9% version. Cloudy brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Silky palate with a little fine carbonation. Sweet malt with some port wine flavours. A little sweet pumpkin and spice - well integrated. Touch of dark rum and a trace of vanilla wood. Finishes semi dry with mild warmth. Pretty well integrated. Tasty and a bit different!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a finger’s worth of off-white head.
S: A wonderful aroma on this beer. Tons of spices, namely cinnamon, all spice, and ginger, are immediately noticeable. The rum/barrel adds plenty of oak and vanilla as well as alcohol. A pretty decent pumpkin smell, too.
T: The pumpkin flavor in this beer is unlike any other I’ve come across. Legitimate fleshy, meaty pumpkin flavor that is complimented by the spice character. The rum helps to enhance the spiciness as well as providing some vanilla and alcohol warmth.
M: The body is medium with a smooth creamy carbonation.
D: This is one beer that is a little bit boozy, but it does not suffer from this characteristic. Amazing flavor and the nose is almost as good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split at the Manny G tasting, thanks to Bruce, 28/06/14.
Murky orange amber with a moderate beige swirl and edgeing.
Nose is big old pumpkin fuel, light spice, dark fruit rinds, ginger notes, caramel fudge.
Taste comprises sticky pumpkin pie mix, malty, rich caramel, light spice, touch boozey syrupy.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate, sweet licks in the close and subtle booze tones in the close.
Solid pumpkin affair, really not getting the 18% which is expertly integrated, thought I was drinking 7 or 8 % worth of autmunal pie filler !
