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.

A: deep amber brown, faintly translucent; a slim finger of head after a center-pour...

S: sweet vegetal and fruit aromas - something of spice, something of wood; hints of booze...

T: sweet pineapple rum and pumpkin pie; spiced and tingly; warming booze and barrel flavors; sugar cane caramel sweetness pushes any too-strong vegetal notes to the back, allowing the rum and fruit to take the fore...

M: medium weight, modest carbonation, some tingle and fizz; some higher and drier boozy airs hit the roof of the mouth...

O: a real nice pumpkin ale - rum barrels seem to consistently bring pineapple to mind for me - this beer brings savory vegetals and tropical fruits together in a smooth fashion - sure to please fans of big boozy pumpkin ales.

Fresh from a snifter on tap. This is the only pumpkin ale I whole heartedly endorse.
Ale was a lightly cloudy reddish amber with light lacing and light foam. Huge nose of
caramel, bananas, figs, nutmeg, and rich rum. Flavors are explosive. Rum up front with a
very nice warming sweet flavor, thick caramel and molasses notes to the back and sides
mingling with toffee, banana, and mild pumpkin pie flavor mixed with a good amount of
nutmeg. Aftertaste of rum and nutmeg linger without being unpleasant. Very complex.
Smooth sipping and mildly carbonated mouthfeel. Silky and decadent. Packs a punch.
Be warned, it is a beast of a killer brew.

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.
