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.

I'm just not really sure how to describe what I was tasting. Was like drinking a really thick, mulled cider. Lots of rum, cloves, cinnamon, and alcohol burn. Not very smooth and I don't really feel like the flavors complimented each other. Glad I was given the opportunity to try this, but don't really feel l need another. Possibly would be better with aging.

Just need to weigh in on this beer. Poured from a bottle in to a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter. I tried to be patient and let this bad boy warm on the cabinet for a while before cracking open. Should have waited a tad more, but wow. Even at a colder temp you could tell it was going places. As it warmed it began revealing amazing, boozy pumpkin pie flavors. I paired it with some extremely dark chocolate and was in heaven.

I first had this beer at FOBAB in 2012 and recalled adoring it. This was my first chance to revisit it and I'm hoping it becomes an annual thing. I can't recommend this beer enough if you're a fan of big, spicy-sweet yam and pumpkin beers. I do wish I'd enjoyed one at the height of the Autumn months. This would be an absolute gem on a crisp Autumn day.
