And its rum barrel-aged, good enough for me and it tastes like it worked out just fine.
If you want a pumpkin ale this fall that doesn’t suck, this one didn’t disappoint. Oregon’s 10 Barrel Brewing let this seasonal sit for a couple years, with only a break to bottle age it for a year. With pumpkin beers making their way into liquor stores, I recommend this one if you like a higher ABV and oaky flavor with rum and pumpkin spice. That last part is the most difficult, flavoring. Usually the pumpkin is overpowering, or should I say the pumpkin spice flavoring.
