Pumpkin Beer, secondary
I decided to give it a taste test today since it has now been in secondary almost 7 days. Aromas of pumpkin, spiced rum, oak, and vanilla. Flavors of pumpkin, spiced rum, oak, and vanilla, with a smooth mouthfeel. WOW! Not bad for my first attempt at a pumpkin beer. I think the vanilla beans accentuate the rum and oak very nicely. I didn't perform a gravity check as the airlock is still bumping lightly. I think I'll let it ride for another week before bottling. My wife Janell gives it a thumbs up as well! I'll post at bottling time! CHEERS!
