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.

Bottle label data: Annual Barrel Series - Batch No. 4 - Bottled Sept 22 2014

The body appears as a dark, orange-copper color with a thick yet fizzy head. Heavy, sweet aroma with a heady mixture of rum, molasses, brown sugar, and pumpkin. Syrupy sweet flavors, heavy on rum and taffy. Heavy body; thick and chewy; viscous.

An over-the-top pumpkin ale styling that punches your senses with a heavy sweetness. There is so much sugar action going on that it does a good job of hiding the high ABV. Definitely unbalanced with the huge sweetness, but it does offer a rather varied array of flavors although the pumpkin aspect is pretty low-key. For the adventurous...

Take pumpkin pie and banana bread, smash together and add a healthy splash of oak aged booze. By far the best pumpkin beer I've ever tasted. Sweet, boozy, spicy. I almost wish it was snowing while I drink this
