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.

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

A - Pours murky copper into my snifter, with reddish hues, just about one finger of bubbly head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing.

S - Pumpkin is very noticeable even with the other bit aromas, sweet molasses, caramelized malts, nutmeg, cinnamon, banana, oak and vanilla with a slight rum booziness.

T - Sweet molasses and pumpkin come right through, followed by oak, rum and vanilla. Caramel and spices linger on the palate, nutmeg and cinnamon, really deep malt profile fights against the warmth of the booze.

M - Full bodied and sticky, pretty spicy and warm on the palate.

O - This is a fantastic treat, would love to try it with some age on it to see how the flavors continue to meld and hopefully the booze will mellow a little, looks like I gotta fork out the dough for another bottle.
