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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 Bottle … Murky toasted caramel ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is chock-full-o-wood and dark rum with a dash of nutmeg, a pinch of cinnamon and a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor offers loads of sweet dark rum. Not much gourd here, but there are gobs of caramel and a dash of pumpkin pie spices. Every bit as sweet and boozy as Black Tuesday. Luxuriant, uber-sweet finish with a big splash of high octane dark rum.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured a deep orangish color with a small sized head. I would say Rum dominates... especially as it warms up. Pumpkin, spices, coconut and some wood in the back ground, but all about the Rum.
