1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Breaking a long hiatus to rate this beer. I donít rate anymore, mostly out of laziness, but every so often a beer inspires me to out thoughts into words. The aroma had me envisioning rotten figs covered in vomit. The taste is a perfect balance of tea, cough syrup, cardboard, and pure sugar. This stuff is terrible. I am so completely tired of these sugar bombs that are being passed off as beer. Fuck this beer and all like it. Give me something thatís been through a fermentation process next time. I canít hate this beer enough, and only wish I had more negative adjectives to puto into this rating.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch #3 bottle that I picked up in San Diego for $13.99. Better be good. Part of a 2-man tasting alongside Good Gourd Almighty and Almanac Heirloom Pumpkin. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange without much head. Aroma of spiced rum, pumpkins, a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is sweet caramel and light butterscotch, a little pumpkin fruit, light cinnamon and nutmeg spice, brown sugar, a bit of marshmallow cream. The sweetness is very nice here. Alcohol warmth is like whoah, as expected. Sweet, not quite syrupy mouthfeel with medium to low carbonation. Overall I like this a lot, and it is a huge improvement over the disappointment that was Good Gourd Almighty that we had right before this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep red. Minimal head that dissipates to nothing. Nose is full if caramel and pumpkin spices. A little heavy on the cinnamon. Light barrel. Taste is similar and a bit sweet. Warming hits about 5 seconds after the sip. Not boozey at all. Wow. This is great. Just wish it was 8% instead of 18!

Bottle at home. Deep amber pour with a small diminishing head. The aroma is high toasted malty with sweet spicy and pumpkin notes. Some oak as well. The flavor is intense sweet with obvious pumpkin notes. Nutmeg and cinnamon too. Heavy and alcoholic. Light roasted finish. A true sipper.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 12oz in Muskogee on Thanksgiving day in a hotel room with my dad and brother in law. My dad doesnít love it, but he refuses to give me the rest of his glass, what the heck. StefN jinks its amazing, he is fascinated by the fact that it is aged in rum barrels: " where does a brewery in Colorado get huge rum barrels?"
Pours brown cloudy with slight red Hugh. Aroma is big rum, raisins, a little cardboard in a good way, molasis. Taste is great, the alcohol is really well hidden, syrupy raisins, and burnt molasis, sweetness, oak,
Big rum. A very nice big beer. I love this stuff with a year plus age on it.
