Aged in rum barrels, with spices added, plus some vanilla extract. It’s very rich and would be a good choice for a cold late-autumn night. There is really a lot of vanilla flavor, everything else takes more of a secondary role, IMO. The rum barrels give it a burnt sugar flavor reminiscent of Southern Tier’s Creme Brulee Stout. A nice innovative take on a pumpkin ale.

Deep orange color with tinges of red. Flavors of pumpkin pie, spice, oak, and the rum shows. This is not as sweet as some pumpkin beers and overall is nice. GABF.

A better pumpkin ale but not enough spice to override the rum and malt base. Spice on the nose, medium body, and good flavors. Just want more pumpkin pie flavors to remind me of the season.

Pours mahogany with a thin off white head. Smells oaky with some light pumpkin spice elements and some warming alcohol. Tastes dry with the oak complimenting the spicy pie profile nicely.

Draft at the brewery. Pours amber orange with a thin white head. Light pumpkin spice, toasted malts, vanilla, and spices. Rum barrel is on the lighter side, but still noticeable. Pretty sweet throughout, but not overwhelming. Good stuff.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark copper with an off-white head. Aroma of light pumpkin and spices, some pale and caramel malts, and the faintest hints of rum. Flavor the same. Average texture. A alight pumpkin beer but nothing special.

Not being a pumpkin ale fan, This was delicious. Very balanced. not over powered by pumpkin pie like, so many others. The Rum barrel came through as it warmed up. Tasted at the brewery

Drank from the bottle. Hints of the rum and vanilla but it is a very light citrus pumpkin ale.
