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.

Big and boozy. Nice rum notes that didn't overpower the pumpkin. Really good, just doubt I could afford more than a couple.

A: The beer is clear orange amber in color. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving only some wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pumpkins and pumpkin spices are present in the nose along with some hints of rum.
T: This beer tastes like pumpkin pie along with a shot of rum. No alcohol is perceptible. The rum flavors seem to get a bit stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an exceptional pumpkin ale that manages to combine flavors of pumpkins and spices along some complementary notes of rum. This tastes more like a 9% of 10% abv beer as it hides its alcohol very well.
