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.

Orange-gold, amber - decently clear, minimal white head.

Very pumpkin pie/fall aroma with a substatial punch of boozy rum sweetness. Graham cracker, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and barrel.

Tastes very young and boozy, hides some of the rich spice on the nose. In-balance boozy sweetness, nice barrel and strong rum but very very sweet

Very smooth mouthfeel that is not too syrupy.

Not a big pumpkin beer fan but this is very good. Crazy sweet, though. Really want to try the porter bourbon version.

A: Translucent, deep ruby with some visible carbonation. No head. Absolutely stunning color.

S: Intense, sweet notes of sugar glazed sweet potatoes baked with marshmallows on top. Pumpkin spice including cinnamon and nutmeg. Booze comes through as super smooth rum with a gentle tingle.

T: The flavor follows very closely from the nose. Long, sweet finish with notes of sweet rum, caramel, burnt sugar, and subdued pumpkin spices including cinnamon and nutmeg.

M: Thick and syrupy with a minor amount of carbonation and a slight burn.

O: This beer is absolutely delicious. I drank half the bottle at a temperature of 59F. It could have a been cooler initially, but was still stunning. The booze is subdued for something so strong, yet it's clear you are drinking a huge beer. An in your face cornucopia of fall flavors with subdued spices.
