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.

Bright saturated reddish copper color, perfect clarity.

Huge toasted plantain, caramized sugar sweetness. Smells more like a Stranahans barrel, a la Samaels. Rich, sweet, and boozy.

Tastes the same, extremely rich, sweet, and boozy. Sticky sweet caramel, marzipan, oaky vanilla, toasted plantains. Low carb with astringent booze. Though extremely sweet, the flavor profile is one I'm partial to, it's pretty similar to Samaels. Overall it is what it is, tastes and smells pretty nice, though not much in the way of distinctive rum/pumpkin elements.

I enjoyed this bottle courtesy of tenderbranson69, chilled in a teku...review from notes.

The color is ruby with light hazed appearance and thin light tan head with streamers of lace and visibly carbonated in the glass. The smell has lots of vegetal/pumpkin quality with mild woody and toasted odor with a slight spice scent and almost no alcohol in the nose. The feel is intense with a lot of spice and malt with mild sweetness and gentle toasted texture with medium high carbonation and dry alcohol on the palate with spice in the finish.

The taste is excellent with a nice pumpkin quality and slight clove-like spice and mild caramel intertwined with a subtle spicy cinnamon woodiness with the rum barrels mild molassess and toasted character with woody undertones and spicy presence of alcohol. There is a good amount of pumpkin sweetness and malt in the taste but pretty rum barrel dominant as it warms with spiced flavor and alcohol into the finish. Overall a great blend of a strong ale with spice and the pumpkin quality still noticeable in the taste with rum enjoyable as an enhancement to the base.
