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.

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.
