Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: womencantsail on 10-09-2010

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.

2014 batch, fridge temp into a snifter and allowed to warm. This is an extremely—bordering on obscenely—sweet beer. Like, it should carry a warning for diabetics. There's very minimal alcohol heat, and the rum is quite muted (except for the degree to which it contributes to the, again, extraordinary sweetness). As it warms, a bit of complexity begins to emerge, most notably in the form of an almost bacon-y aftertaste (which is a good thing). Overall, this is very tasty, but it's a bit one-dimensional and lacking the complexity I get from the truly world-class barrel-aged offerings.

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.
