Received from a trade -- 22oz bottle poured into a tulip. It puts a muddy brown with very little head. The aroma is pumpkin spice cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, followed by heavy rum booze, but in a complimentary role. Flavor starts with rum, fermented sugars not alcohol, gives way to vanilla, pumpkin and malty caramel. Finishes with a caramel wood flavor. Overall to compare the only other Rum barrel aged pumpkin I?ve had this is better than Saint Arnolds Bishops Barrel 6.

wedgie9 (1937) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours hazy, very bright caramel orange with a thin beige head that leaves a very thin collar of lace. The nose is super intense sweet rum pumpkin pie with some baking spice. The flavor is the same intense rum, pumpkin pie, and the expected pumpkin pie baking spice. The body is full with light carbonation and a long spiced pumpkin pie and rum finish.
