BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Avery Brewing Company

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 16.73%

Availability: Fall

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.

whoa! As billed the 2014 Rumpkin is a big hit of rum followed by a mellow pumpkin flavor. Great right away, and cannot wait to see how it ages.

Exceptional, but too expensive and rare. Basically, I loved it, but wish I could have it again.

Take pumpkin pie and banana bread, smash together and add a healthy splash of oak aged booze. By far the best pumpkin beer I've ever tasted. Sweet, boozy, spicy. I almost wish it was snowing while I drink this

It is, simply, the best pumpkin beer I've ever had. The sweetness of the rum barrel perfectly goes with the pumpkin flavoring. The high alcohol is totally masked, making this an extraordinarily enjoyable drink. Pump[KY]n is also good, but this is on another planet.
