Pumpkin Ale |  18.53% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
We wondered what would happen if a monstrous pumpkin ale, plump full of spicy gourdiness, were aged in fine fresh rum barrels to add suggestions of delicate oak and candied molasses. Rumpkin is what happened! This first member of the Annual Barrel-Aged Series was brewed with roasted pumpkins from a local Boulder County farm, and spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger.

WOW! Thanks to my friend Chris for shipping this one in for me from Colorado! The pumpkin beer of pumpkin beers! 18.1% alcohol is out of control, but you would not know the alky content is that high....beer is smooth and sweet. Pours a nice dark orange amber color, cloudy, not clear. Smell and taste is of sweet rum, caramel (sweet, sweet caramel!!!), and spices. Mouthfeel is super smooth, almost of an oily consistency, but nice bringing the flavors together. Overall, I think this si the best Pumpkin/fall seasonal beer that I have enjoyed this 2012 season! Very nice!!!

The Farmhouse had this brew on tap last fall and after seeing it on their website I had to go try it. The beer poured out as a nice copperish orange color. The head didn't last very long and didn't leave a lacing. The smell of the beer was spicy and boozy. The taste of the beer had a semi-sweet at first, then the spices kick in and the alcohol warmth finishes off the taste. The flavor is very strong, and I really liked the rum barrel aging. The mouthfeel is on the heavier side but it's got a good carbonation to it. Overall this is a really good beer to sip on a cooler autumn night. Enjoyable!
