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.

I'll revisit it after it's aged a bit. For me, fresh, this beer was super hot, boozy, and overly sweet. I enjoyed the spice and pumpkin aroma and flavor, but the sweetness was overpowering for me. Hopefully in time it ages into a wonderful beverage.

Batch No. 3, bottled Sept 6, 2013. Poured into a snifter, the beer is a hazy, muddled, opaque, amber-brown coloring, with no head whatsoever. Aromas of booze, pumpkin sweetness, brown sugar, woody notes, tangy caramel, and a subtle spice blend of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavors are very layered, with a rich pumpkin bread characteristic of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg, leading the way, followed by an immediate blast of booze, both in strength and warmth. Woody and vanilla notes come through in highlights, as well as some brown sugar and heavy molasses characteristics. This thing is a beast. Slick, oily, robust bodied, with a huge warming factor as you drink. The aftertaste is surprisingly light on booze, and more of a sit down and chat with the pumpkin and spice blend. Very pleasant surprise. The finish is slick, quick, and surprisingly clean, with only the slightest candi sugar linger. Great beer!
