Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: womencantsail on 10-09-2010

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.

Too sweet, too much yam

Apparently my rating of 1 for taste is an outlier. In terms of flavor, I'd have to describe it as "overwhelmingly, nauseatingly sweet." Sorry, but it made me gag.

Exceptional, but too expensive and rare. Basically, I loved it, but wish I could have it again.

Smell is of some pumpkin spices and straight alcohol. A deep inhale burns the nostrils almost as if it were a glass of whiskey. Taste is tons of molasses, and ginger and nutmeg come through as well. The finish is rough, though. Medicinal, buttery, boozy. Too much.

Disappointing as I had been wanting to try this for years. This definitely has potential. Perhaps some age will mellow it out.

Outlier detected, review required.

Not a fan of the style which could lead to the lower rating. Too much rum came through and not enough barrel flavor. Didn't detect the nutmeg or cinnamon either.
