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.

On tap at Ginger Man NYC. First sip was "too sweet", next two or three less so. By the fourth sip I was on board. Complex flavor that balanced the high alcohol perfectly. Rum? I caught hints, which is exactly what made this a perfect beer to me. Full of subtle flavors that kept me going back and discovering more with each taste.

The Rumpkin is perfect beer. Can barely call it beer, it closer to liquid Valhalla! You laugh, but don't. Rum barrel have made BAJM do jizz before, but never such like this. So good, almost run out of jizz!!!!!??!!!

whoa! As billed the 2014 Rumpkin is a big hit of rum followed by a mellow pumpkin flavor. Great right away, and cannot wait to see how it ages.
