DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to adnielsen. My bottle is batch #2. bottled 9/17/12. ABV labeled 18.1%. Hazy (pretty much opaque) dark orange / red color. No head, no lace. Rum and pumpkin gourd nose. Spicy flavor, big satisfying pumpkin, awesome amount of rum - a lot of rum barrel wood. But still a massive amount of gourdy pumpkin in this, very satisfying. Alcohol in this is detectable, but not 18% detectable. Seems more drinkable than DFHs WWS and 120m, but still has a sort of bite in the finish. Otherwise, hint of sweetness, more spiciness. Bigger body, but its very dry. Carbonation is lighter but noticable. Very long, delicious pumpkin / rum barrel wood finish. Awesome, fascinating, intensely tasty stuff. Great to sip and savor.

Panzuriel (2003) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Appearance: Rich copper brown. Mostly clear. Almost no head. Nose: Rich caramel, rum notes. tones of oak and pumpkin. Hint of spice. Taste: Boozy and huge rum alcohol hit. Notes of pumpkin and spice line up well with the alcohol Body: Medium to fuller. Parting thoughts: My second Rum barrel Pumpkin of the season. Far superior to the first. everything blended together very well.

bookman10 (984) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2016
This is a pumpkin ale taken to the extreme. Pours a light, cola brown, almost watery, with little to no head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is also dominated by pumpkin pie spices, with more than a little rum, lots of booziness to this one. Be careful, with that alcohol content.

tmoreau (3846) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2016
On tap at Warrens Ale House in Wheaton, IL., listed 16.7% abv. on the menu, as a full 5oz. serving, displaying a clear & bright, amber hue, with a frothy layer of off white/cream colored head foam, and doily-like cling to the lacing. The aroma was sweetness as caramel, brown sugar, and candied berry & cherry. Pumpkin and an array of pie spices rounded out the nose. Full bodied, with soft carbonation, the texture was syrupy & sticky, the taste was similar notes as the aromas, dessert-like, quite sweet, yet smoothly boozy, and very flavorful.

Batch 6, Bottled August 17, 2016, 17.5% abv. Dark burnt orange color, translucent, with off-white ring of a head, and no lacing. Aroma has strong pumpkin and rum notes- great blend, not boozy at all. Flavor is syrupy, sweet, with sharp alcohol notes at first, but as it settles, the rich pumpkin, spices, and rum are noticeable. Very interesting, but at $15 for a 12oz bottle- I may never buy another, and not necessarily worth the money.

GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Batch 04-2014 -- 12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Translucent brown color, boozey nose, zero head. Flavor is boozey and delicious. Pumpkin comes through, but the spices have fallen out. Tastes like a dessert, decadent and full.

jgb9348 (5820) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a non-existent head, some subtle shades of orange and a nice peach and ruby glow. Aroma of alcohol, bourbon, grain, maple syrup, candy, rich toasted malt, pumpkin pie spice and some honey - strong and surely potent. Full-bodied; Super strong and dense rich squash flavour with some bourbon, oak, malt, grain, maple syrup, pumpkin/squash, pumpkin pie spice and extra allspice thrown in, all with a ton of leftover alcohol. Aftertaste shows some boozey notes with grain, squash, syrup, toffee, caramel, oak, vanilla and a bunch more alcohol - super rich, and definitely noticeable with double digits abv! Overall, a good, but very rich and decadent squash-based beer with a ton of sweetness and even more alcohol tucked in. Good to try and even better that this was on draught. I sampled this ten ounce pour on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia at the end of my driveway on 18-October-2016 for US$9,00.
