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.

A: Pours a dark amber with a little tannish head. The latter quickly vanishes leaving what looks like a still beverage.

S: Delicious pumpkin pie filling, with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice blends with the underlying caramel and vanilla. Big, rich, sweet flavor.

T: Rich pumpkin and spice mix with a boozy burn, moderate sweetness, and then a little toffee, chocolate, and dried fruit.

M: Round, full bodied, with a very nice light, sharp carbonation which cuts the

O: In the same vein as a lot of the bigger BA Avery beers, although I think this works better in terms of restraining the booziness and sugar compared to, say, Uncle Jacob’s Stout or the shelf beers.
