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...totally get catsup on the nose....

Poured into a FW snifter...

A-Beautiful ruby red with a sweet lil ring around the edge of the glass...no real head to speak of.

A- Like I said...catsup...this thing is so sweet on the nose its crazy! Probably more like rum, pumpkin, molasses.

T- Catsup...I mean rum and pumpkin and molasses....something roasted...actually really good.

M- Minimal carb...

O- Pretty fine beer. If you do rum, do this....

On tap at Ginger Man NYC. First sip was "too sweet", next two or three less so. By the fourth sip I was on board. Complex flavor that balanced the high alcohol perfectly. Rum? I caught hints, which is exactly what made this a perfect beer to me. Full of subtle flavors that kept me going back and discovering more with each taste.
