On tap at Hunahpuís Day 2014 poured into commemorative taster. Brown and hazy with a hint of orange in body with a few bubbles of tan foam floating around the top. Aroma is loaded with pie spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove plus vanilla and rum. Taste is like a blended pumpkin pie spiked with rum - moderately sweet with some woody bitterness from the spices. Medium-full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, boozy finish.

Dfonorow (1329) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle share at Tribes Alehouse. Pour is cloudy orange/brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma and flavor of sourdough, pumpkin, wood, cinnamon, rum, and a bit of vanilla. The rum helps to blanace out the pumpkin pie spice. Better than I expected.

750 ml into a tulip. Thanks Tom! Pours a murky dark red with some light khaki edging. Nose is rum soaked pumpkin spice creme cake. Gobs of spice, vanilla, oak, squash, earthy grass, and cinnamon/nutmeg. Sooo festive and inviting. Taste is sweet and spicy rum barrel with notes of oak and vanilla on top of squash and cooking spices. Very tasty. A little too carbonated in the mouth feel. Overall itís one of the best pumpkin beers Iíve had. The rum barrel is very present but not overwhelming and the pumpkin/spice is spot on. Very impressive.

cbfobes (2269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle shared by drowland, pours a murky brown with a light brown head and a little bit of lacing, the aroma has tons of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg all together with some rum coming through as well, the flavor has a huge spice front end with a warming finish of rum and vanilla, really sweet though, for what it is I liked it, wouldnít want to drink it all the time by any means though.

rxeight (1188) - Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Sample at fauxbab. Lots of pumpkin spice and vanilla. Didnít detect any rum or booze. Might just have been blended well or covered by the spice. Good stuff, better than most pumpkin beers.
