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.

2011 vintage

A. Cloudy, murky orange with lots if sediment and particulates. Good half finger of cream colored head. Lacing is also quite good. The color, however, is not.

S. Lots of brown sugar, some cinnamon and clove, roasted pumpkin, some boozy and vanilla rum qualities, and some earthy woodiness that gives it a slightly musty finish. Not bad.

T. This was surprising. Very barleywine-esque, with a prominent brown sugar and dark fruit flavor profile. Lots of toasted bread crust, clove, cinnamon, and a big kiss of booze on the back end. The finish is tannic and boozy with a big oak kick and some vanilla notes from the rum. Surprisingly good. The pumpkin character isnt very present outside of the spice. I am not sure I would recognize this as a pumpkin ale as opposed to a strong ale or barleywine without the label. It's good though. It is really freakin good.

M. Is there any way to not make a 16% beer taste boozy? Because this does. But it is also sweet, malty, spicy, and the rum barrel is very nicely integrated. Rum in particular was a great choice for this beer. It compliments it very nicely. It's boozy yet balanced.

O. Very surprised. This is boozy and really too much for one person to comfortably enjoy. But it's like a pumpkin barleywine, a behemoth of a pumpkin beer that is very well made. Like a traditional pumpkin on steroids, Avery Rumpkin overcomes its shortcomings to, in the end, become a pretty good beer.

look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a murky brown-orange with half a finger of beige head that almost completely vanishes with no lacing.

S: sweet caramel aromas up front followed by some tart apple aromas. Slight pumpkin spice aromas follow along with vanilla, oak, and rum. The tart fruit aromas permeate throughout.

T: lots of caramel up front with vanilla and oak. Some light pumpkin spice and ginger notes follow. Sweet rum with a light alcohol burn bring up the finish.

M: medium-thick body with low carbonation, this beer is syrupy sweet.

O: a decent beer, but much too sweet. I like the rum characters, but the pumpkin aspects are lost in the sweetness and alcohol. (650 characters)

Batch 3 / Bottled 9-Sep-13

12 oz. poured into Lost Abbey Teku on 10-Oct-13

Aromas of pumpkin, sweet cherries, cinnamon, nutmeg, burnt molassas, rum and spices. Just a little booze, interesting.

The spice and rum dominate the flavors. Whew, the heat at the end! It's great cause it's not boozy and doesn't seem like 18% is obliterating my senses. Overall, I don't get enough of the pumpkin and oak barrel as I'd like to because the rum and spices dominate palate. It reminds me of how Uncle Jacobs does the same; it's as if Avery just pours a couple ounces of the spirit straight into the beer just prior to bottling. Let the reader know that I'm not particularly fond of Rum.

The body is rather light than I prefer as well for a pumpkin ale, but I suppose the body's gotta be as is due to the high ABV. Doesn't come close to Almanac's, but still a great pumpkin ale to enjoy during the cold fall and winter months. (918 characters)

Bottle label data: Annual Barrel Series - Batch No. 4 - Bottled Sept 22 2014

The body appears as a dark, orange-copper color with a thick yet fizzy head. Heavy, sweet aroma with a heady mixture of rum, molasses, brown sugar, and pumpkin. Syrupy sweet flavors, heavy on rum and taffy. Heavy body; thick and chewy; viscous.

An over-the-top pumpkin ale styling that punches your senses with a heavy sweetness. There is so much sugar action going on that it does a good job of hiding the high ABV. Definitely unbalanced with the huge sweetness, but it does offer a rather varied array of flavors although the pumpkin aspect is pretty low-key. For the adventurous... (663 characters)

On tap at ChurchKey in DC. Poured into a snifter glass. Pours dark reddish brown with thin head and lacing that lasts throughout. Aromas full of toffee, caramel, cinnamon, clove, slight ginger, big notes of brown sugar, molasses, some nice spiced rum, nice sweet pumpkin notes on there as well, really big and full. Taste is just as good and the alcohol is pretty much completely hidden, starts with notes of sweet vanilla, brown sugar, toffee, and molasses, some nice cinnamon, clove, ginger, leading into a perfect blend of sweet pumpkin, rum, and a slight hint of warmth, balanced with a cinnamon, clove and ginger spice combo going into a nice dry, slightly bitter finish. Carbed well enough to carry the taste through the palate, nice full on the palate as well to have a nice lasting finish. What an interesting rum-infused pumpkin ale! (842 characters)

On tap at the Bistro barrel-aged fest.

A: Pours a deep orange-honey colored body with good clarity and a nice head. Decent retention with some lace.

S: This beer is intense on the nose. The rum barrel really stands out. Lots of rum, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, nutmeg on the nose.

T: This is horribly, horribly sweet. Cloying, really. Rum, vanilla, brown sugar. The only things that fight the flavor a little bit are the oak and a touch of nutmeg and/or cinnamon. Just the same, it fills that small need in me to have sickly-sweet things around holiday time (and holiday time only) -- then I can spend the rest of the year convincing myself they were awesome. Candy corn falls in this category. Candy corn and Rumpkin. Anyway, it's not the worst pumpkin beer I've had, but 2 oz is all you need, really.

M: Full-bodied. Very sticky, sweet flavors. Could clean up better. I prefer my pumpkin beers to be pie-like but fairly clean in flavor, not syrupy.

O: I was told by some other patrons to leave this "palate-wrecker" toward the end. I was skeptical; how badly could this wreck a palate at a BARREL AGED BEER FEST? Turns out, quite badly. A very sweet beer. (1,166 characters)

Bottled September 17th of this year.

Poured into a goblet, Rumpkin is a hazy copper color with barely any head.

Aroma is rich and boozy with a big hit of a rum barrel.

Flavor is huge and intense with rum, primarily, but also some pumpkin and pie spice. The barrels impart some vanilla but the rum character really overpowers it.

Mouthfeel is big in body, low in carbonation, and high in alcohol.

An interesting beer and just about as big as it gets. Worth a try but probably only once. (490 characters)

12oz bottle poured into 18oz Funky Buddha snifter.

A- Pours a dark brown with a nice purplish red translucent hue to it, nice carbonation, about a half finger of slightly off-white head forms that recedes to a wispy top.

S- Nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices, yams, light pumpkin that takes a little bit of a backseat to the spices, booze, rum, oak, and a bit of booze. Pumpkin could come out a bit more but otherwise nicely balanced.

T- Sugary cinnamon candy, light nutmeg, pumpkin that blends nicely with the cinnamon, rum adds an extra sweetness to a beer that's already almost too sweet, a bit of booze up front but the spices hide it nicely on the finish. Overall decent flavors but a bit on the boozy/sweet side.

M- A little bit on the heavier side with a slight syrupy presence, slight fizzy carbonation at first but dies down pretty fast, can definitely feel the booze but drinks very smooth for the almost 17%, still very much a sipper though and I recommend splitting the bottle.

O- Rumpkin is definitely a unique beer in the pumpkin category. For what it is (an ultra boozy, spiced, very sweet pumpkin beer), it definitely is well done in my opinion but is not for everyone. I definitely suggest lying some down for a year or two, the spices/sweetness will dull down a bit and if anything it will become a bit smoother. Overall I enjoyed this beer although I wish I split it with someone and at a $15 price tag it isn't something I would buy much of. (1,476 characters)

2011 vintage on tap at Good Life

A - Dark amber pour with no head or foam. Has a thickness to its consistency as it swirls in the glass.

S - Scents of rich molasses and brown sugar. There is a slight aroma of pumpkin and spices. Very strong scent of rum.

T - Initial flavor is sweet but there is almost no pumpkin flavors. Some spice notes and flavors of blackstrap molasses. Finish is very boozy and similar to a tawny port wine.

M - Too heavy to be anything more than a sipper, but the balance is simply near impossible to attain given the style and ABV. In short, pumpkin beers were not meant to be this big. The experience is not bad though; a small pour of this is a really good cordial.

O - Glad to have tried this extreme beer. Avery seems to push the envelope more than most. Good times. (800 characters)

12oz, 10/5/11
Victory tulip

A: Pours a murky dark orange color. Didn't get much head, but at that ABV it's expected. Just an off white ring around the edges. I saw some tiny bubbles up the sides, so there is some carbonation.

S: Initially smells like an old ale or something. Then I started to get the pumpkin ale character: the spices, pumpkin fruit, etc. Not getting the booze, so maybe the year helped this one. Some sweet booze.

T: Initial sip, I slight booze burn goes to the back of the throat right away. Then up front, I am getting that over riding pumpkin ale character. Nice rich pumpkin pulp and then the traditional spice blend. You get some oak and vanilla character from the barrel and it's certainly different than a bourbon barrel. More lively and spicy.

M: It's a big medium leading to full. (812 characters)

Bottle 9/22/2914:
Appears a sort if orange-amber, hazy to cloudy in clarity. Head is small bubbles that reduce to a foamy thick edge head, with some large bubbles in the mix. There is actually some lacing for tis high ABV beer.

Nose is obvious pumpkin, somewhat tart fruity nose. The spice is actually subdued (some nutmeg and ginger can be detected). As the beer warms, a rum sweetness can be noted. The power if the smell is nice, but the mix does have sonething weird about the mix that made me mark it diwn a notch.

Taste has a molasses sweetness to it at the beginning, but not dark or heavy. The pumpkin bitter/tart is as present as it is in the smell. The spice notes, especially ginger, come through in the beer and add a bite, which is accentuated but a rum-tinged alcohol burn. I get an impression of rum-soaked fruit bread (rum raisin maybe) in the taste. Feel is medium overall body, the sweetness up front seeming a bit heavy, but some carbonation and fruity ending lighten it a bit.

This is a sweeter beer, to be sure. It also shows its power a bit. If you are not a fan of a sweeter beer, you can save your money. If you like real pumpkin beers, and aren't dissuaded by the previous sentence, give this a try at least once. Beware, it's likely a slow sipper based on its ABV and sweetness. (1,320 characters)

Picked up at my local Binny’s. Surprised to see this here in Illinois. I originally thought we were not getting this distributed (granted it did just arrive, a couple months after other markets got it).

Appearance – Pours into a tulip with a rather murky brownish red with about a half finger of quickly dissipate tan colored head.

Smell – The aromas are quite strong...my glass is a few feet away from me and I can still smell the beer. Heavy nutmeg and spices, pumpkin, slight rum, and an odd citrusy/sweetness.

Taste – Sweet brown sugar mixed with the aforementioned spices. Somewhat one dimensional in the fact it is quite sweet with lots of spices dumped in. Slight pumpkin, but mainly sugary spices. Honestly, not so much a pumpkin ale as it is a heavy old ale or strong ale with spices and slight pumpkin flavoring mixed in.

Mouthfeel – Medium to thicker bodied, creamy, lower carbonation.

Overall – Well, I am not going to lie. This beer impressed me, if nothing else, due to the fact it is almost 16% and the alcohol is insanely well hidden. There is some warming and just a hint of alcohol in the taste...but for how young this beer is, it is nothing unacceptable. Would I buy another? Probably not...but I will give props to Avery for this interesting take on a pumpkin beer. (1,304 characters)

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. (677 characters)

Bottled 7 September 2012. Tasted 6 September 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours an orange brown color. Clear at the top, murky at the bottom from the sediment. Just a little bit of off-white head.

Basically smells like rum, with a little bit of spice and a little bit of pumpkin. It's like sweet, candied rum. And alcohol. I tend not to drink hard liquor, so I can find its character overpowering. But this is another level.

Taste is... alcohol. It's burning, and I can barely get past it. Doesn't have enough flavor to contend with that unmasked alcohol. A touch of pumpkin and spice, but it's like pumpkin flavored rum rather than pumpkin pie. Yes, I know it's a high-ABV beer, but it's so one-dimensional.

Feel is good. Medium-bodied, with a buoyancy that the evaporative alcohol provides. Carbonation is medium-low, but that's okay for a beer like this.

Just doesn't do it for me. It's super alcoholic, and more rum beer than pumpkin beer for sure. I'm buzzed just from my share of this 12 oz. bottle. Yikes, this is potent. Not a whole lot of positive flavors, and a serious alcohol burn. Not one I'd drink again, and I struggled to finish off the bottle with my friend (who said it seemed more appropriate for drinking down by the railroad tracks). (1,257 characters)

Batch No.4 - Bottled on September 22, 2014

Striking brownish copper. Rum notes dominate the nose but pumpkin and other sweet notes are discernible as well. Sticky mouthfeel. The rum sweetness is also upfront in the flavor profile. Some pie spice notes come on for the finish along with the distinct essence of molasses. The alcohol gets a tad overdone at times but considering the enormous ABV, that is not a problem.

Had this as a Thanksgiving digestif a few hours after the main course and dessert. I am hoping to get another bottle to age for next year. It was excellent fresh but I believe that it has the potential to be epic with some age on it. (656 characters)

1st review:

Nearly no head. This beer pours a beautiful, cloudy orange-brown color with a great alcohol scent. Pumpkin taste is evident but not so much as the rum flavor. Not a huge fan of rum to begin with but overall great job by Avery. Really different but absolutely delicious. (282 characters)

12oz bottle poured into a large snifter.

A: Deep ruby in color with lighter orange hues. The head sputters out very quickly, but that isn't surprising given the muscular abv and time in the barrel.

S: Loads or gourdy pumpkin with a toasty and caramelized facet. Toasted pumpkin seed and a light smokey aroma blend seamlessly with toasty oak. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger flit about playfully on the nose. Sweet and buttery rum. All of this plays off of a huge, sweet malt body of dark caramel and brown molasses.

T: Candied sweetness, lots of chewy caramel, brown molasses, brown sugar. Gourdy and sugary sweet pumpkin. Big estery component brings berry and cherry with it. Seasoned oak brings a speck of woody dryness, but doesn't some close to countering the sweetness offered by the malts. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger spiciness are present throughout as a sort of baseline. Buttery and caramelly rum flavors, spicy alcohol heat. Lingering boozy sweet finish of caramel and candy apple coating.

M: Thick, viscous, and loaded with dextrins. Slick and very syrupy. Little to no carbonation. Peppery alcohol heat is present too, and warming in the chest. It never feels hot though.

O: Ridiculously huge and over the top. I love it. An easy sipper, like a fine cognac or cordial. It really is sweet to the point of being cloying, but it just works here. This is the biggest pumpkin beer I've ever come across, and one of the most unique. I look forward to its release every year. Makes for a nice, slow dessert sipper. (1,525 characters)

Smell is of some pumpkin spices and straight alcohol. A deep inhale burns the nostrils almost as if it were a glass of whiskey. Taste is tons of molasses, and ginger and nutmeg come through as well. The finish is rough, though. Medicinal, buttery, boozy. Too much.

Disappointing as I had been wanting to try this for years. This definitely has potential. Perhaps some age will mellow it out. (394 characters)

Pours cloudy orange brown with a small tan head that fades into a wisp. Legs down the glass. Light retention, but pretty impressive given the high ABV.

Big sweet rum notes along with some pumpkin flesh and just a little earthy spice.

In general, I will have to say I'm amazed how close to tastes to pumpkin pie soaked in rum. Big pumpkin character up front which is refreshing since I hate "pumpkin" beers that are just overly spiced. The rum does a good job of lending some spiciness to complement, but not overpower the pumpkin. A decent amount of cinnamon with a little nutmeg on top of the rum spices. Not nearly as boozy as the nose although it is noticeable. My only complaint would be it's a touch on the sweet side.

Thick bodied with lower carbonation levels appropriate to the ABV level. Booze is noticeable, but hidden fairly well and I wouldn't have guessed it'd be this high.

Pumpkin beers aren't usually my thing, but this was an enjoyable over the top take on one. Would still prefer some other barrel aged things to this, but still very solid. (1,063 characters)

Bottle from Oct 2011.

Copper body, minimal head. Spicy rum, booze, barrels, & pumpkin aroma. Taste brings everything together smoothly with hearty pumpkin, plenty of rum, and strong booze too. The balance here works quite well; I do love this beer.

Rumpkin will age with the best of them; can't wait to see how this develops in a few years. (342 characters)

Just watched I Heart Huckabees. Epic movie yet so humble in its honest and easy truth. Easy truth about the complexities of life. Any fart, this beer started out huge. Big pumpkin aroma and flavor. Some molasses. Spicy alcohol. Little hop profile. Then it immediately became a Dogfish 120. Not quite a Mephistopheles but almost a Samael. Dusty profile. Huge alcohol taste. One dimensional. Just heavy booze. Then it hit me. The complexities in this brew are buried beneath the dominate alcohol. So subtle but very real. Just like I Heart Huckabees, this beer is real life. Great at first, redundant inbetween, and a real eye opener in the end. Oh and it is crimson in color. Just like the other rum beer I've had in this series (The Black Tot) I think it's waaayyyy too boozy. Go fudge yourself Avery. Fudge away... (815 characters)

Entering from some hand written notes:

Murky orangish-brown color with a thick texture. Almost no head and looks flat.

Smells heavily of spiced rum and canned pureed pumpkin with a dash of allspice.

Ok, for taste I have down BOOZY, in all caps. Yep, that's what I remember most. It was more like a pumpkin rum than a pumpkin beer. Spiced rum and pumpkin spice sums it up. It's very sweet, too.

The mouthfeel is syrupy and I can recall a lot of Avery's bigger beers having this texture- thick body, low carbonation, and borderline cloyingly sweet.

I really dig the way the pumpkin and rum play off each other but I'm glad I was only drinking a 6oz pour of this. It's very boozy and thick. Proceed with caution. (715 characters)

Poured a brilliant ruby-orange with just a few bubbles on the oily surface. Great big aroma with pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, and just a hint of booze.

Moderate carbonation and a prickly, heavy mouthfeel. Big brown sugar up front with hint of pumpkin and spice before a hot blast of oaky vanilla.

The taste didn't quite live up to the aroma, probably because the alcohol is overwhelming the subtler elements. Have another bottle for the cellar so we'll see how this drinks in a year or two. (504 characters)

Appearance: Deep caramel/copper. Head is off-white. Thin head and a small ring grace the top of the beer. Pours on the thick side. Very still. Slight chill haze pervades.

Smell: Vanilla, rum, oak, cinnamon and pumpkin flesh. Real pumpkin flesh carries the vegetable quality I love to see in a pumpkin beer. Sweet caramel and molasses round it all out. Decidedly sweet with a nice depth and complexity. Faint touch of ginger on the back. Oh, did I mention rum?

Taste: Rum with a pumpkin pie chaser. Cinnamon and nutmeg are in abundance. Molasses and caramel coupled with hints of vanilla. Oak adds a nice dimension to the whole thing. Rum really plays through and interacts with the flavors of a beefy pumpkin ale. Spice profile is on point. Malts are pleasantly sweet.

Mouthfeel: Nice and full with hints of something syrupy. Dry on the back from the big hit of booze. Carbonation is low.

Overall: Definitely a sipper, but a nice treatment for the pumpkin ale. The rum flavors add a nice depth that compliments the delicious fall spices. A bit too aggressive overall, but a year or two should make this interesting. (1,119 characters)

2011 vintage. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 8 oz snifter.

A- pours caramel in color with a half finger of cream colored head. No lacing.

S- caramel, cinnamon, maple syrup, nutmeg and faint pumpkin.

T- sweet maple syrup, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg.

M- medium body and carbonation. Syrupy with a alcohol burn still.

O- the rum aging works very well with the pumpkin beer. I think another year on this beer and the booze will fade more and will drink very well. (466 characters)
