On tap at the Houston Flying Saucer. Very clear amber-red with a small off-white head. The nose is boozy with cane sugar, burnt sugar, some spices, and caramel. Flavor hits you right away with warming booze up front, then sweet sugary malt and some rum flavor with a bit of spiciness in the backdrop. A very fruity finish and aftertaste with a nice alcoholic tingle on the way down. Pumpkin? What pumpkin? Itís not really there, to be honest. Nevertheless, itís still a very tasty beer. If you like rum. I need to drink some more rum, I think.

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.

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 Iíd love this with a little less spice and a lower abv.

Bottled 09.09.15. Poured 03.08.16. A: Very sweet. Molasses, pumpkin puree, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon. A: Fizzy 1/3 finger head that quickly fades to a small ring. Very hazy dark red body. T: Follows the nose with additions of oak woodiness and caramel. P: Itís pretty syrupy, but some bubbles are there on the back end. O: Midway through the glass, it almost tastes like a nice barleywine. Itís good, but Pump[KY]n is better.

My two favorite drinks have come together in one awesome glass! I enjoyed a sample of this fine drink on draft at Union Jacks. The beer poured a dark ruby color with a small but lacing tan head. The nose featured pumpkin, rum, caramel malt, ginger and nutmeg. The flavors were so dang delicious! I could taste the rum literally being lifted away from the rest of the liquid as I swirled it around on my palate. The rum just sprang out and shared the spotlight with the pumpkin. This is amazing! Super smooth finish with a touch of booze on the tongue. Forget the pie and símores. Iíll take the bottle.
