Pours a yellowish orange clear colour with lots of sediments floating about. No real head building up. Ugly beer. Nose is pretty intense with ’thebolscher’ and sweet and sticky, boozy pumpkin. The taste is very rich and again sweet and boozy. Definite pumpkin but not detecting the rum barrel. Just getting a little spice like clover or cardamom in the finish. Gets sticky sweet and boozy in the aftertaste. Not a fan of these October beers but had hopes for this one. Turnes out I have yet to try a nice pumpkin beer.

Deep amber color out of the bottle with a thin beige head. Big boozy nose with some spice cake notes. This is a very nice dessert sipping beer. I can’t get past the pumpkin roll/cream cheese frosting sweetness of this. Rum, pie spice, sugar, cream cheese, and dark fruits. More beer should come in rum barrels.
