3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours burnt orange w/ a white head & not much lacing. Aroma is robustly full of spices. Taste is full of spice w/ a bit of uniqueness - possibly the rum barrel? It’s really light in body & making it dangerously drinksble @ nearly 7%. Good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Copper, low carbonation without any real head.
Nose: Spices, pumpkin, pale mat and vanilla notes.
Taste: Pale malt, spices, slightly sweet, slight bitterness at the end.
Palate: Thin, a little spicy on the tongue.
Overall: Malt totally underdeveloped in this one, spices are dominant. Too thin, makes me think of a less malty Belgian Ale. Rum barrels? I think they didn’t use them for the first in this batch...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can found hiding in the deep crevasses of my beer fridge. Pours a dark Amber color with a small beige head of foam. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin, urinal cake, potpourri, vanilla, and caramel malt. Taste of grass, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, toasted grain, caramel malt, and light rum barrel notes. Not bad for a six month old pumpkin beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden brown with a small white head. The aroma is very hoppy with a hint of cinnamon. I couldn’t detect a pumpkin aroma. The taste was fair, pumpkin was noted along with a rum aftertaste. Overall, an average beer.
