750mL bottle from Catador Club, I believe, shared with cbfobes and some friends, June 2014. Deep brown pour with a nice tan head, good lacing. Good aroma, normal Good Gourd popping through with good squashiness, an almost buttery (in a good way) brown sugar aspect, mild spices meld well in the beer and with the lightly oaky and slightly sweet rum treatment. I loved the flavor on this bad boy... squashy, nicely sweet, the spices are fabulous and pitched with a light hand, melds well with light oak and sweet rum, positively delicious. Yum!

Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 Sunday tasting at Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell. Pours rich amber with a frothy, off-white head. Rich pumpkin aroma with notes of ripe fruits and caramel. Heavy sweet flavor, sticky, with ripe fruits, pureed pumpkin, bread, alcohol, rum. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish with sticky, ripe fruits, pumpkins, berries, caramel. Tasty stuff. Nice and hearty.

Ernesto987 (4200) - Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2014
this was oddly tasty, a huge spice sweet bomb, but since noting was overqwhlming and it was very well balanced, I thoroughly enjoyed it

Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 10/08/2014 Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Aroma is composed of cola, sweet raisin, rum barrel and cinnamon spices. Red coloured pour with a lasting off white head. Flavour is composed of cola, berry, caramel and honey malts, cinnamon and liquorice. Spices are balanced and nicely integrated but slightly heavy handed. Palate is sticky sweet, smooth for the above and moderate carbonation.

Bottle huge thanks to Colin ’Theydon Bois’ (cheers Colin) consumed at cottage in Faraway, Devon, Friday 21st November 2014. Pours dark murky brown, huge rum, lots of rum but alcohol softened somewhat by pumpkin. Bit boozy but not harsh, a little sweet perhaps. Lots of spice, but tastes good. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7

Bottle. Semi hazy orange amber, with an off white head. Lots of pumpkin, caramel, sweet pie, vanilla, strong rum, rum fruit, spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and some warming alcohol. Nice.

chinchill (2460) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Drinks like a barleywine, with a somewhat thin body and obviously high ABV. Overly sweet but otherwise good balance and good, if strong, use of rum barrel aging. Subtle pumpkin.

hopscotch (9840) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle... Pours cloudy and caramel with a small, creamy, off-white head. The rich nose is loaded with winter spices and a lovely vanilla component. Full-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. The decadent flavor is spicy and chock-full-of rum, vanilla and pumpkin. Finishes sweet with heaps of rum, but it’s neither cloying nor excessively boozy or alcoholic.
