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.

4.35/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Strong pour into CBS snifter produces a modest one finger malted milk colored head. The head recedes very quickly, very spotty lacing left clinging the the walls of the glass. The body is a very murky cider brown color.

The aroma is pleasant and assertive. The rum is very prominent up front but does not become overwhelming. Warm brown bready malt, brown sugar and pumpkin spice intermingle just behind. The aroma as a whole leans towards the boozier side but the secondary aromas are very well balanced.

Rumpkin delivers intensity upfront. Sweet malt, warm pumpkin and spicy rum flood the palate. The intensity diminishes as the beer travels towards the back of the tongue. Brown sugar and vanilla flavors develops, smoothing out the intense flavors up front. The pumpkin spice really stands out on the back end leaving a very pleasant flavor lingering after the swallow. There is a bit of residual heat that lingers in the back of the throat, overall the booziness is pleasantly warming.

Medium bodied beer. The carbonation is low and very appropriate. Very smooth, chewy texture on the tongue, absolutely perfect for this beer. The finish is long, that was expected.

Tremendous beer, very enjoyable. The flavors mesh very well, outstanding balance on the palate. Rumpkin is a bit of a sipper, though it is certainly a beer that you do not mind nursing for an evening. Big thanks to FosterJM for this excellent extra, very appreciative for the chance to try this beer.

4.25/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

The bottle says this is from Batch No. 1. Pours a deep orange/copper color. Pretty clear and tons of tiny bubbles rising to generate a fizzy two finger head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is intense! Brown sugar, vanilla, and spice hit first, but there is a nice overall pumpkin presence. Smells like pumpkin pie. Alcohol is definitely noticeable on the nose, but not offensive. The taste is exactly like the smell. The first thing I noticed was insane amounts of carbonation on my tongue. Starts out syrupy sweet, but the spices come in to help balance it out. It finishes with a semi-dry fresh pumpkin taste. Mouthfeel is somewhat thick, but the carbonation is very high. Overall, the most unique and intense pumpkin ale I have had to date. If there were such thing as a Double/Imperial Pumpkin Ale, this would fit the bill. There are definitely some flaws to the beer. The carbonation is just too much. There is also a definite burn from the alcohol. I know 15.9% abv is high, but Avery could have masked the alcohol taste more. With that said, this is an epic beer and one that I would definitely try again. The rum barrels add a very nice touch. This will definitely benefit from aging.

look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a murky brown-orange with half a finger of beige head that almost completely vanishes with no lacing.

S: sweet caramel aromas up front followed by some tart apple aromas. Slight pumpkin spice aromas follow along with vanilla, oak, and rum. The tart fruit aromas permeate throughout.

T: lots of caramel up front with vanilla and oak. Some light pumpkin spice and ginger notes follow. Sweet rum with a light alcohol burn bring up the finish.

M: medium-thick body with low carbonation, this beer is syrupy sweet.

O: a decent beer, but much too sweet. I like the rum characters, but the pumpkin aspects are lost in the sweetness and alcohol.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Opened this with friends.

A: Reddish brown look with some lacing, very little head at all. It looks like a nice dark spirit.

S: I get a lot of fruity notes up front and then some sugary rum barrel certainly to back it up. Grape, caramel, coconut, brown sugar, some cinnamon or nutmeg like spices. Some wet barley in there too.

T: I like this, but it;s quite sweet, I attribute that to the rum barrel mostly: Grape-cherry juice cocktail, brown sugar, vanilla, oak, just a little alcohol sweetness. No pumpkin to speak of, just some nice kitchen spice and general spice you would expect in pumpkin pie or beer. Has a nice cognac taste to it, sweet and complex, not hot and interesting in spice.

M: Pretty nice feel, not as thick as hoped but it rolls over the palate nicely. Kind of like a hard candy melted.

Overall, I dig this beer, one of the best rum barrel beers I;ve had. Would I buy another for $10? Probably not, but it is good.

4/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Ruddy amber with slight haze and a thin eggshell colored head.

Smell: Loads of pie spice and pumpkin backed by a ton of caramel sweetness. It's quite earthy and gourd-like; they must have used a lot of pumpkin in this, and a lot of spice for that matter. The barrel is pretty integrated but lends quite a bit of sweetness. Surprisingly, booze is pretty restrained here compared to last year's batch.

Taste & mouthfeel: Incredibly sweet, almost cloying; a ton of caramel and brown sugar along with a big pumpkin and spice character. Full, syrupy body with a good amount of carbonation. Mellow rum character, very mild oak presence. Warming going down, but thankfully not harshly boozy. Sweet, sugary finish; lingering spices.

O- damn good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle, listed as 15.9%,

A: Pours a ruddy red brown with a light off-white head. Good retention, no lace.

S: Pumpkins, rum and brown sugar. Notes of ginger as well. Very fragrant.

T: Malt heavy, lots of residual sugar. The rum barrel is clear, the pumpkin is a bit harder to find, the high gravity really takes over.

M: Very full-bodied and viscous, quite smooth with only a slight alcohol burn in the finish, but nothing I'd consider hot. Still really a sipper, and nothing I'd drink fast.

O: An interesting beer. At almost 16% ABV the ethanol is a player and the high final gravity defines the beer. Fun beer to drink, does remind me of Olde School Barleywine a bit, but with pumpkins.

Wow, this is pumpkin ale for Halloween if there ever was one. Imperial, in a major way. It’s an imperial imperial, with an abv the same as driving age in most states. Bottled, I’d share this with a friend and called it a night in order to sleep it off. (Can you imagine a bomber of this? Hijole!) On draught, driving, and I’m glad it’s just a taster-sized pour since the evening was just getting started. But I certainly could have sipped on this one for an entire evening.
Pours a clear, light amber, with a very thin lacing. You get a lot of booze smelling it, but also a clearly distinct pumpkin aroma. That’s not always the case for a pumpkin ale. A real rummy sweetness around the edges. It’s a big beer, no doubt about it. But also very sweet and shippable. The effervescence helps keep it from feeling heavy on the palate. In a word: wow.

My Halloween beer, because I can. Newest batch is 15.9%

A - Pours a half dinger head, cappuccino in color which quickly dissipates. Body is burnt indian red which is slightly hazy.

S - Mostly sweet candies. Some alcohol. I'm picking up some sourness, like a sour cream, but in a good way.

T - The alcohol is there throughout. This is not a "spicy" pumpkin beer, but hints of cinnamon and cloves with a stronger allspice flavor. I don't taste the rum, but the alcohol is not hidden. Some sweet plum as well.

M - Nicely balanced with good carbonation and feel.

O - a bit much on the alcohol and I am not totally convinced it is a pumpkin beer. It is tasty and well done on all other effects. Much better than the current year Beast which is way too hot.

2012 version - A lot more pumpkin in this than I remember from 2011. I think I like it better.

3.5/5  rDev -14%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the Rackhouse Pub.
A deep amber orange with a white sheen. Carbonation is light and fades a bit over time, but never goes flat. Pretty impressive for something this strong.
The nose is VERY rum heavy. Rum overpowers even the pretty potent pumpkin pie spices.
The flavor is sweet and creamy, like some of the best pumpkin beers around...and then that rum hit kicks in. While it adds flavor, it also adds a fair amount of heat and distillate character.
Allspice, sweet cream, and cinnamon are amplified by that rum sugar. Sometimes that's awesome, sometimes it's fiery and off-putting.
A pretty hot brew at 15%, and a very slow sipper. Treat it like a cognac instead of a beer.
Some sips are really, really good while others taste like pumpkin rum.
I almost wish the beer weren't rum aged. Either that or maybe just taking on a milder character.
Pretty good, but probably not one I'll seek out like I would Meph Addict or some other Avery brews.

Poured from a bottle into a Colossus snifter.

Appearance: Pours a murky reddish amber with just a very little bit of off white head.

Smell: Incredibly sweet with a ton of malt and some alcohol. There is some pumpkin and rum in there. It also smells like some other fruits, perhaps ripe pineapple or bananas.

Taste: As in the taste, extremely sweet, but that is expected. Notes of caramel and dark fruit as well as pumpkin and some mild banana notes. The somewhat unpleasant pineapple like note in the smell doesn't show up here. Some Rum and very warm alcohol in the finish.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the thick side of medium and mildly syrupy. Aggressively tingly carbonation and a finish that is a little bit dry and quite hot.

Overall: This beer is right up my alley. I'm a huge fan of breweries trying different and weird things. I would have another.

Had on-tap at Rattle N Hum at the Avery tap takeover on 10/25/11.
Review taken from notes.

This beer pours a dark mahogany copper color with some ruby hues. There was a tiny layer of off-white head that dissipated very quickly leaving some specs of lace behind on the glass. The nose is big and sweet. There are dark toasted malt, dark fruits, spiced rum, pumpkin, and holiday spices. There is a big booziness as well. The taste is deep dark and sweet. There are fruit flavors like raisin, fig, cherry, and plum. There is a hefty dose of pumpkin, cinnamon, and brown sugar. It is quite boozy, which is to be expected from a beer that is almost 14% alcohol. The whole flavor seems to linger on the palate in the finish. This is full bodied and has more carbonation than I thought it would have. There is some tingling and some roastiness. There is quite a bit of sweetness, and pretty big boozy warmth in the finish. This has really good drinkability. It is most definitely a slow sipper, but the flavor is great. I enjoyed every drop of this one. I really think the rum barrels were a good choice for this beer. I recommend trying this. I thought it was great.

Bottle into pint glass
A – Pour reminded me of pouring a bottle of soda into a pint glass but with less head, reduced to nothing instantly, stronger than average carbonation, cloudy brown amber slightly red color. 3.5
S – No surprises here…pumpkin, caramel, rum, spices, alcohol, earthy 3.5
T – Hoo waa, a VERY big spicy pumpkin ale. Big dark sweetness up front to a meaty pumpkin middle before the rum barrel and spice characteristics take over and fade to a moderately bitter finish. Brown sugar, vanilla, dark rum, cloves, molasses, slight fruit. Enough port similarities for me to mention it. An unrefined sugar pumpkin spiced rum bomb. 4
M – Thicker, smooth, with a nice/ample level of carbonation, still very large on the palate 4
O – What a truly unique beer. Not the easiest drinker, but there is so much more here that becomes a side note. I liked not loved this brew, but do recommend any BA try it simply because it is so original. Not sure I can improve upon my prior… an unrefined sugar pumpkin spiced rum bomb reflection. 4

I reviewed this beer earlier, but it was on tap and I only had a 4 oz. pour. At the time I thought that might be all I'd get this year. I was lucky enough, though, to get a few bottles of it and I was finally able to sit down and do a proper review of a full beer. That said, I will let my tap review stand as almost anyone who has had it on tap has also only had 4 ounces.

APPEARANCE: This resembles a classic Double IPA. It is deep copper without much head to speak of. It is very unassuming considering what a big beer this is.

SMELL: Brown sugar, dark rum and pumpkin make up the bulk of the aroma in this one, in that order. Some ginger and other sweeter spices come through in the background as well.

TASTE: Wow. All the aromas from the nose are jam packed into the flavor of this beer and it is incredible. This is what a pumpkin molasses cookie would taste like if it was in beer form. It truly is delicious.

MOUTHFEEL: Smooth, silky and very sweet. Each sip is sticky up front, but dries out for the finish preventing it from getting to sticky and mouthcoating.

OVERALL: Honestly, pumpkin beers don't get better than this. If you get the chance, drink it.

1st review:

Nearly no head. This beer pours a beautiful, cloudy orange-brown color with a great alcohol scent. Pumpkin taste is evident but not so much as the rum flavor. Not a huge fan of rum to begin with but overall great job by Avery. Really different but absolutely delicious.

now its 15.8

appearance - nice orangeish amber. head dissipates quickly off a semi rough pour.

smell - pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon and other pumpkin spices, rum, and more caramel

taste - caramel leads the way, pumpkin, a very nice rum, cinnamon, a tiny bit of nutmeg.

mouthfeel - thick, but not overly so, minor sugar coating in mouth, not cloying whatsoever. carbonation is decent considering appearance. feels great for a cold autumn night on the porch.

overall - never had a pumpkin beer that compares...the closest would have to be st arnolds imp stout with pumpkin spices. which is a pumpkin stout? but anyways...this is great fresh but down the road?

A - Little to no head. No lacing. Head that swirls in is a creamy-beige color. Brew is cloudy amber with tons of orange and brown.

S - Big brown sugar scent. Very oakey and vanilla. Slight booze burn. Some nice deep spice is buried inside. Lots of ginger and nutmeg. Smells like a strong rummed-eggnog.

T - Very spicy and elegant vanilla. Some nice strong rum notes along with banana and brown sugar. Tastes like bananas foster. yum yums. Not much in the way of pumpkin, but spice is still nice.

M - Perfect (light) carbonation. Hidden heat, but you can feel the burn.

O - Tastes like a shot of Captain Morgan's with a slight beer kick. Not the most impressive, but still a nice brew. This doesn't fit the style, but it's enjoyable. I will recommend this one, but I won't be buying any more.

Many thanks to my friend Ken for sharing a bottle of this one late Sunday morning (a perfect time for this type of beer). Poured a clear dark orange amber with a small lingering amber head. On the nose, I got rum, pumpkin pie, cinnamon and cloves. On the palate, medium-bodied, very sweet, with lots of rum, dark brown sugar and molasses. Not a whole lot of pumpkin (or pumpkin pie) flavor going on, which is good; the rum barrels balance nicely against the pumpkin pie spicing, and although they stand out, they do so in a good way. The rum barrels work much better here than they did with Black Tot.

On draft at Churchkey:

Pours an amber/orange color. Very little carbonation or lacing on the glass. Somewhat transparent in appearance. A very small cocoa head that actually sticks around for awhile. Great looking beer. Wow. This is amazing- the nose is cinnamon, a tiny bit of pumpkin, nutmeg, rum, oak, and molasses. Really complex and fantastic smells coming from this beer! The taste really brings the spices out- though not overwhelmingly so. Rum definitely makes it's presence known too. The taste is almost port like. Very complex flavors- and the 15.9% ABV is fairly well hidden too. Feel is smooth, silky, and rich- with a little alcohol burn on the end- Fantastic! Overall, this is the best pumpkin beer I've had by a landslide- although you don't get a lot of pumpkin. It's great though, and I'm glad I got to try this brew. Highly Recommended.

On tap at ChurchKey in DC. Poured into a snifter glass. Pours dark reddish brown with thin head and lacing that lasts throughout. Aromas full of toffee, caramel, cinnamon, clove, slight ginger, big notes of brown sugar, molasses, some nice spiced rum, nice sweet pumpkin notes on there as well, really big and full. Taste is just as good and the alcohol is pretty much completely hidden, starts with notes of sweet vanilla, brown sugar, toffee, and molasses, some nice cinnamon, clove, ginger, leading into a perfect blend of sweet pumpkin, rum, and a slight hint of warmth, balanced with a cinnamon, clove and ginger spice combo going into a nice dry, slightly bitter finish. Carbed well enough to carry the taste through the palate, nice full on the palate as well to have a nice lasting finish. What an interesting rum-infused pumpkin ale!

The Rumpkin is an intense experience. I've only had it at the tap room, however its taste is hard to forget. It has anything-but-subtle pumpkin and rum flavors, as well as a strong alcoholic smell. It's a very attractive dark orange with a thin head.

Out of all the pumpkin beers I've had it is the best tasting, yet stays extremely true to the type.

from notes on my last trip up north

orange tinted amber with a little bit of a haze to it and ample carbonation. A nice three finger head of white lace appeared on top and gradually faded down into just a film across the top. The aroma was very big, full of spices, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg were readily noticeable. The taste followed along the same line. A very spicy little ale with just the right amount of hotness to it. The cinnamon was particularly strong and had a great effect on the flavor. Very nice light body and ample carbonation made it go down very easily.

The Farmhouse had this brew on tap last fall and after seeing it on their website I had to go try it. The beer poured out as a nice copperish orange color. The head didn't last very long and didn't leave a lacing. The smell of the beer was spicy and boozy. The taste of the beer had a semi-sweet at first, then the spices kick in and the alcohol warmth finishes off the taste. The flavor is very strong, and I really liked the rum barrel aging. The mouthfeel is on the heavier side but it's got a good carbonation to it. Overall this is a really good beer to sip on a cooler autumn night. Enjoyable!

Enjoyed this on tap tonight as part of a Colorado Beer Week special tapping at Falling Rock. Reviewed from notes and a 15 minute old memory. The beer is a rich copper color, with small bubbles but no head to speak of. Aromas of spice, specifically cinnamon and clove. Rich mid-palate vanilla, with a butterscotch finish and a sharp but pleasant alcohol bite. This is a sipper, and an excellent one. If they ever decide to bottle this (and I hope they do), it'd be my go to snow day beer.

On-tap at Brewvival 2011.

Pours a dark orange with a creamy head. Smells and tastes of pumpkin, rum and brown sugar, with a good amount of spices. The rum really enhances the pumpkin, this tastes like the best pumpkin pie or casserole you've ever had. Very sweet, with a nice mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. As a pumpkin beer fan I was really looking forward to this, and I wasn't disappointed. Avery needs to bottle this!
