Bottle share at Proof courtesy of scotchzi. Opaque orangey amber. Zero head, but who cares? Aroma reminds me of hot cider: spice (cinnamon, clove) sweet almost burnt sugar, and pumpkin replaces the apple, but there is a touch of baked apple too. Taste is very similar, but a warm spiced rum comes through too. Thin-medium body with almost no carbonation; but who cares? Extremely well thought out brew, and yummy as hell. Maybe my new favorite pumpkin?

jsquire (4364) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2017
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 cant 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.
