Aroma is over powering rum, appearance is brown and cloudy, taste is spice and rum. Less pumpkin in this than regular

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour hazy copper with moderate ecru head and moderate dense floaters. Nose sweet cinnamon, pie spice, light rum. Taste big sweet up front, sweet pumpkin pie, cinnamon, almost bubble gum, all with underlying hint of rum. I’m a fan of big flavors and this is big, albeit all sweet.

Bottle thanks to 50belair! Pours quite hazy reddish hazel, lots of big floaters, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is rum, Tom and Jerry mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin flesh. Flavor is quite sweet, malty, heavy rum, pumpkin spices. Medium body, quite hot.

Too much cinnamon and not enough pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark golden orange color that appears caramel brown in the glass wih mahogany edges and a two finger off-white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of sappy lacing coat the glass on the way down. Intense aroma but still very inviting. Smells like a rum soaked pumpkin pie with a prominent barrel presence that’s nicely integrated into the notes of a pumpkin beer. Dry charred oak with slight toothpick character but not harsh or overwhelming. The tropical rum spiciness blends well with the autumnal spices, sweet malt and pumpkin pie notes. Rum soaked fruit cake with pumpkin purée, allspice, clove, nutmeg, ginger and vanilla. Wow, this is a really big beer and you can definitely feel and taste it. Huge barrel presnce with strong rum flavors without becoming too hot or overpowering. Subtle oak and vanilla bean but not too charred or toothy. Spicy rum blends well with the autumnal spices and pumpkin pie flavors. Rum flavor is a little too sweet for my preference but there’s a heavy spice presence balancing things out. zesty hints of black pepper, allspice, glove, ginger and nutmeg. The spices and strong barrel flavors take over the pumpkin elements. Shows up more as it warms with vanilla, nutmeg and pumpkin purée. Some boozy heat in the finish but the high ABV is decently masked once the palate adjusts. Could use more complexity and better balance but it’s pretty flavorful with a nice blend of spicy rum, oak barrel, earthy spice and desert/pumpkin pie sweetness. Feels more like a barrel aged pumpkin barleywine.

Dark brown. Hazy, no head. Draft pour. Smells fantastic. Tons of rum and pumpkin. Good mouthfeel. This is very thick. Boozy with a lot of rum and maple and tootsie roll chocolate. There’s just so much. A single glass is enough.

Draft at Parker Pie. Pours murky medium brown with a few off white bubbles. Aroma is big dark rum, pumpkin pie spice. Flavor follows. I think the rum barrel really works with this. Molasses, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice.

brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Bottle @ La Palma Sour Fest 2015. Dark amber colored beer with a thin ring of off-white foam. Definitely a bit on the sweet and boozy side, but much more enjoyable than I typically find rum barrel aged beers. Lots of vanilla and marshmallow, some maple syrup, and a bit of sweet potato. Kind of hot on the flavor for my liking.

Bottle secured as member if El Catador club, aged 12 months. Aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin and a hint of rum. I have always been a fan of Good Gourd, but aging in rum barrels gives it an extra dimension that is just magnificent! If you get the chance, try this beer!

4.3
HonusWagner (2191) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Delicious, delicious beer, but quite heavy. The rum sweetness both accentuates that primary characteristic of regular GG and also makes it hard to finish more than 8oz or so. But the flavors are just killer.
