BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Avery Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
averybrewing.com

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.

4.47/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Golden thick syrup. Pours like a watered down maple syrup. Deep dark mahogany in color. poured violently into a shifty gave me a very thin head which goes away and stays that way, i would expect that at near 16%

Smell - Let me tell you, right when i opened this bottle my nose was ATTACKED with rum and booze. COOL! I hate rum by the way but this one in the glass shines. There is this incredibly sweet character to this beer like nothing i have ever smelled in a beer like this. Rum soaked pumpkin definitely. Cinnamon, nutmeg, earthy tones. Smells incredible.

Taste - WOW, so impressed by this one. I am not a pumpkin beer fan but this beer goes somewhere else. This beer is incredibly smooth, not hot whatsoever. Very sweet, but not like a sweet RIS, it is like sweet raw sugar cane. Wrapped up in the sweet rum notes are the cinnamon and nutmeg and pumpkin you would want in something like this. Just so amazing, i must say.

Mouthfeel - Thick, viscous, coats your mouth with pure happiness.

Overall - Not a big pumpkin beer fan and i hate rum... but as i said this one is in a league of its own. Highly creative and delicious, these brewers knew what they were doing. Oh, and 15.90 abv? WHERE?!?!?

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

A: Dark honey color with a very thin cream colored head.

S: Rum, lots of pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, vanilla, golden raisin and caramel.

T: The pumpkin works unbelievably well with the sweetness of the rum. Some nice spice notes coupled with the alcohol make you feel like you're eating a warm piece of pumpkin pie. Definitely a sipper but delicious.

A-Pours a transparent copper hue. Two sets of forceful pouring birth a orange-tinted head. The head dies away both times and only leaves a bubbled ring along the outer edge of my glass. There is plenty of carbonation rushing from the laser-etched Duvel sign from the stem of the glass. The bubbles rise in a near perfect circle in the middle of the glass. Agitation of the beer also leaves wine-like legs.

S-Huge nose billows out from the glass. I can smell it from afar. The rum barrels strangle my senses. Sugar cane and boozy molasses. Vanilla and oak. Rich, rum-dipped pumpkin flesh. Autumn spices waft from both my glass and bottle. Pumpkin pie with a rum filled center. Pumpkin vines. Delectable and divine.

T-The rum and pumpkin work in perfect symbiosis. Pumpkin meat! Flavor of the rum and barrel. Oaky and woody but also sugar-caned and concise molasses. Fall spice catelogue (cinnamon, allspice, cloves, nutmeg). Loads of caramel. Light herbal hoppiness. The pumpkin and rum mesh in PB&J fashion.

M-Soft carbonation. Bubbles are just lively enough. Creamy, ridiculously full body. Syrupy and sappy. Booze does not hide, but it just works so well with the rum flavor. The booziness is a positive when it comes to Rumpkin. A sipper; yet it tastes so damn good I need to remember to pace myself.

O/D-Is this my favorite Pump? Without question the answer is yessir. Transcends the boundary I thought a Pumpkin brew could reach. This is not just a great Pumpkin Ale, this is a great time. So happy to have had this. Rum and pumpkin, rum and pumpkin, RUM AND PUMPKIN!

Had on-tap at Rattle N Hum at the Avery tap takeover on 10/25/11.
Review taken from notes.

This beer pours a dark mahogany copper color with some ruby hues. There was a tiny layer of off-white head that dissipated very quickly leaving some specs of lace behind on the glass. The nose is big and sweet. There are dark toasted malt, dark fruits, spiced rum, pumpkin, and holiday spices. There is a big booziness as well. The taste is deep dark and sweet. There are fruit flavors like raisin, fig, cherry, and plum. There is a hefty dose of pumpkin, cinnamon, and brown sugar. It is quite boozy, which is to be expected from a beer that is almost 14% alcohol. The whole flavor seems to linger on the palate in the finish. This is full bodied and has more carbonation than I thought it would have. There is some tingling and some roastiness. There is quite a bit of sweetness, and pretty big boozy warmth in the finish. This has really good drinkability. It is most definitely a slow sipper, but the flavor is great. I enjoyed every drop of this one. I really think the rum barrels were a good choice for this beer. I recommend trying this. I thought it was great.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice. Bottled September 09, 2015.

Appearance: Pours a hazy brownish amber with a moderate amount of bubbles. Slight finger of off white head that quickly fades back into a thin patch.

Smell: A sweet, boozy, and spicy aroma with a big scent of rum and pumpkin spice. Upfront barrel presence with a big scent of sweet and boozy rum, vanilla, and a little oak. Scent of pumpkin along with spice hints of cinnamon, clove, allspice, nutmeg, and ginger. Sweet scent of molasses and brown sugar. Malt hints of caramel, biscuit, toast, and yeast. A really good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a sweet, boozy, and spicy taste with big notes of rum and pumpkin spice. Big barrel presence with notes of rum, vanilla, oak, and wood. Some pumpkin flavor along with spice notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, allspice, and ginger. Sweet taste of molasess and brown sugar. Toasted malt notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, and yeast. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Rich, sticky, and fairly boozy as expected.

Overall: A really good barrel aged take on a Pumpkin Ale. Big rum barrel flavor along with the pumpkin spices. A slow sipper for sure, but it nicely avoids becoming a cloying mess.

Super hot. Full of sugar and sweetness. I split this 12 oz "beer" and I 'm glad I did. Full of flavor. Not any pumpkin at all but tons of sugary goodness. Should have aged this beer to let it cool down.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance – Pours a clear copper red color with almost no head and almost no lacing.

Smell – Pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon, molasses and RUM.

Taste – Taste follows the smell. Quite nice.

Mouthfeel – Very creamy, low carbonation, easy drinking for a 16.73% abv beer.

Drinkability – Another great beer from Avery. Not quite as good as the Pump[KY]n in my opinion, but an exceptional pumpkin beer nonetheless.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. This was bottled 09/06/13 so is 2 months old as of this review.

Appearance: Pours an interesting semi-translucent ruby/oak/dark orange color and leaves virtually no head, just some bubbles that fade right away. Not even a rim around the glass.

Smell: Lots of oak and rum upfront. Pleasant hints of pumpkin, apple, rosemary, brown sugar. Very sweet aroma. Very in-your-face as well.

Taste: Big oak and rum upfront followed by very pleasant mild pumpkin, rosemary, cinnamon, molasses, brown sugar. Very interesting and impressive flavor profile.

Mouth-feel: Low carbonation, with a sticky whisky-like medium body. Alcohol is present in the mouth-feel although the taste of it is pretty well hidden by the intense flavors.

Overall: Really an interesting beer. Lots of oak and rum lead the way, but the mild pumpkin and spices shine brilliantly in the background. The body is sticky and similar to a liqueur, but is much easier drinking than one. Sweet and delicious - this is a wonderful sipper for autumn.

Beer#666 that I've rated. 2015 edition. Poured into thin Unibroue snifter. A real MONSTER. Color of a pumpkin if I left it out for a while. Not much in the way of foam or lacing, but a lot of particulates floating around. Strong pumpkin smell and the barrel presence isn't overwhelming. Taste, however, totally different story. It is a big boozy bastard with a booze burn foremost with a healthy pumpkin flavor following. Glad I let it age a year, because it's a super powerful beer now, and I can only imagine how strong it would be fresh. I don't know how much rum I'm getting, but it's a great beer.

Shared with some friends at Whistle Binkies. Poured into some snifters:

A - A nice deep amber with a little bit of golden hues. Hardly any head witha bit of foam around the edges with really no lacing.

S - Loads of nutmeg. Lots o' rum and cinnamon and pumpkin. Little bits of vanilla from the barrel and a bit of candy sugar. That's about it.

T - Oh yeah! Pumpkin pie, cream and rum! The spices are really nice with bits of pepper and a touch of citrus right before the rum blast. Pretty damn good!

M - Huge tingle from the booze and the spices but not too bad at all. Smooth but really no carbonation, only touch from the barrel.

O - Yeah its really good for a pumpkin ale but it is full of booze. Really great smell and flavor, but I'd be suprised if someone could finish one of these by themselves. Great for sharing though, especially around the holidays!

Poured from a bottle to a snifter. Batch #3

A: Poured an amber color with no head.

S: Immediately get the rum, sort of pineapple smell as I would describe it. It has that (English) barley wine sweet candy apple smell to it. Reminds me of smelling the Firestone Walker Double DBA. It wasn't until the last sip that I could smell the pumpkin and spices.

T: Wow, big flavor kick. It's a lot less off putting than I thought it was going to be. Very sweet. Probably the sweetest beer I've had. Has a very sweet molasses candy flavor. Kind of like an over ripe candied caramel apple with some pumpkin flavor. On the end I'm getting the nutmeg and spices. As it warms, the beer gets even sweeter.

M: Full bodied beer. The alcohol is actually pretty well hidden, other than the obvious burn on the chest. Sticky mouth feel.

Overall a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a boozy mess, but the rum really complements the pumpkin aspect of the beer. The rum obviously makes the beer very sweet. The best way I can describe the beer is that it's like a Firestone Walker Double DBA on steroids.

On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA as part of their Jingle Bell Jubilee.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a 1/2 inch tan head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Random dots of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, spices, pumpkin, rum, and wood. A very nice barrel aged aroma on this one. Taste is of malt, sugar and spice (cinnamon and the like), graham crackers, rum, and wood. The pumpkin is there but very subtle in my opinion. This beer has a nice level of carbonation with crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a great pumpkin beer that turned out extremely well with the rum barrel aging.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Great Lakes snifter.

Appearance: Pours a dark, hazy orange color with a half-finger beige head. Very good head retention given the impressive abv. There are quite a few chunks of sediment floating around (even with a very gentle pour).

Smell: Smell hits the nose as soon as the bottle is opened. Molasses, rum, cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg. Tons of depth. Like a slice of pumpkin pie drizzled with molasses and dunked in rum. Extremely enticing.

Taste: Whoa. I was expecting this to pack a punch given the 16.73% abv mark and it delivers. Strong dark rum barrel notes up front with rich molasses, pumpkin pie, nutmeg, some ginger, cinnamon. Definite alcohol heat on the finish along with more sweet caramel malt/molasses flavor. The alcohol heat works very well given the strength of the beer (and who wants rum without a little burn?) Really quite a remarkable flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: Extremely full-bodied and thick on the palate. Fairly low carbonation level.

Overall: Definitely a sipper and a very unique experience. When all is said and done this is easily one of the best pumpkin beer I've had to date. The rum and pumpkin play off each other beautifully. I wish more breweries would explore this combo.

I scooped up one these by chance as my local beer store was not suppose to get any of these... Glad they did though! Poured into a snifter, stuck my nose into it, and was punched in the face with rum notes, nutmeg, and pumpkin. Pours with a slight head and quickly disipates to a clear, dark redish/orange color brew. Very smooth and sweet and the first sip left behind a nice burn in my chest almost as if I took a shot of whiskey. The most overwhelming notes on the palate to me is the rum and molasses sweetness. This is a very refreshing change from the super bready big pumpkin beers on the market like the Pumpking from Southern Tier... Though no where near the ABV of this. Aside from this being a little to much on the sweet side, I wish I was able to get more and set aside until next year because I would love to see how this would do with a year or two of aging. Overall great beer, especially if you're a fan of extreme brews! Plus since only 418 cases of this were sold this year, you would be silly not to pick on up if you find it and have not tried it yet!

Pours a beautiful burnt orange. Initial nose is rum, pumpkin, brown sugar, molasses. First taste and holy sweet pumpkin Batman! After I got past the initial diabetic shock and let it warm, the taste follows the nose. If you were to caramelize some pumpkin in butter with brown sugar and then deglaze it with a dfh 120, that is pretty much the flavor you get from this beast. Excellent mouth feel and hardly any booze burn (though halfway through the glass my equilibrium can definitely detect the booze). Excellent brew.

Great, big, sweet and boozy pumpkin beer! A style that I usually don't prefer but this one was legit! Tons of spice on the nose and in the taste with a thick mouthfeel, almost like biting into a pumpkin pie soaked in bourbon!

Many thanks to my friend Ken for sharing a bottle of this one late Sunday morning (a perfect time for this type of beer). Poured a clear dark orange amber with a small lingering amber head. On the nose, I got rum, pumpkin pie, cinnamon and cloves. On the palate, medium-bodied, very sweet, with lots of rum, dark brown sugar and molasses. Not a whole lot of pumpkin (or pumpkin pie) flavor going on, which is good; the rum barrels balance nicely against the pumpkin pie spicing, and although they stand out, they do so in a good way. The rum barrels work much better here than they did with Black Tot.

this has been way way up on my list for a long time, and i was fortunate enough to find this today. its from 2012, bottled on september 17th. it pours a seasonally perfect orange caramel color. it doesnt appear to have much carbonation to it, as there is basically no head after the big tan bubbles fade out. it smells sweet like molasses, and quite boozy, as it of course must at this strength. i smell some vanilla and sweet wood too, the rum conditioning is obvious in the nose. the flavor is beautiful, everything i hoped it would be. mellow and squashy at first, lots of pumpkin flavor and not too much spice at all. it says ginger on the bottle, and i can taste a hint of that in there, which is a nice twist in a pumpkin beer. all of a sudden though the alcohol sets in, and is overpowering, but it doesnt last that long before a swet nugmeg vanilla fall spice thing comes in and drags you through a long strong finish that has hints of apple and whiskey. so delicious. its incredible really. the rum component is perfect in a pumpkin beer, where sometimes i think its weird in other beers because of its sweetness. this works wonderfully. i also really dig the mouthfeel, despite its really low carbonation. the alcohol almost acts as a surrogate for the bubbles, keeping it quite light with lots of sting in the mouth. its vigorous in that way. the sugar content is high, but its okay. this is the perfect fall beer, definitely on to share, and definitely worth the price, whatever the hell i paid for this...

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a medium to dark brownish orange with a half finger khaki head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, banana, pumpkin bread, rum, dark dried fruit, clove; smells a lot like a rum pumpkin bread. Flavor is rich caramel malt, pumpkin, rum, dried and fresh dark dried fruit, with the same bready components. Medium to heavy bodied, a bit syrupy and boozy. This is the closest I've found in a beer to a slightly undercooked pumpkin bread soaked in rum. I'm a big fan of pumpkin bread and the rum is a nice touch. Big and sweet, but with lots of flavor to support it. A big pumpkin bread barleywine. This may be my holiday dessert beer in the future.

This behemoth manages to embody Autumn holidays with every sip. Plenty of rum barrel-soaked notes of pumpkin spice and sweet molasses, nutmeg, cinnamon and a healthy hint of ginger, all in both scent and taste.
I almost overlooked this heavy-duty gem, thinking it was something I tried recently (I initially mistook it for Avery's PumpKYn).
This is better in the sense that it's so highly drinkable considering its high abv. The rum barrel serves the pumpkin notes well. Most of the woody notes appear in the nose and not in the taste, which is a fine balance between rich sweet malt/ molasses and rum barrel/ Fall spices.
I took half a growler once I realized this was new to try, as Avery doesn't steer one wrong in the "big beer" department. It would be great to sip through November, too.

Look has a grape juice hue. No head.

Good spice and pumpkin smell.

Tastes amazing. The rum goes great with the pumpkin. The booze is there but masked very well for 17%.

Feel is good. The sensation from the rum lingers

Great beer. Better than pumpKYn. The rum just compliments the spices so well.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary snifter. Liquid comes out a pretty nice amber red color that gets closer to autumn orange when you hold it up to the light. Only a small white to off white colored head. Goes away pretty quick and not much in the way of lacing. Excellent clarity on the beer but a little bit of glass retention of the liquid itself, sort of syrupy.

Smell is pretty good, but really more unique than anything else in my opinion. Some classic pumpkin pie aromas including spices. Blends well with the rum, a little woody too, but it's an afterthought.

The taste is a huge step up from the smell, it's wonderful. Pumpkin comes out much stronger here. More of a hearty natural pumpkin flavor that's sweetened up a bit. Still a spicy note with a nice spoonful of molasses mixed in topped off with a nice sweet rum flavor. All in all this is one tasty beer.

Mouthfeel is good. Certainly full bodied and a slight weak carbonation level. For such a high alcohol beer, it's actually not too hot, I'm sure rum has something to do with it instead of the normal bourbon or whiskey barrel beers. The balance is good, starts really sweet and a nice warm finish. It's drinkable but certainly a nice sipper. Good night cap beer on a cool evening. Well done Avery, another solid brew.

12 oz. bottle. Enjoyed this on Thanksgiving Day with a slice of pecan pie and also pumpkin pie. Poured a dark amber color with minimal head. Smells incredible, spiced rum, spices, caramel, malt. Tastes-Whoa! The high ABV is not hidden at all but still has amazing flavors. Pumpkin? Pretty subtle. Spiced rum dominates. Finishes hot. I shared the bottle which was a good idea. Perfect end to a huge Thanksgiving day meal and paired very well with dessert.

11th taster at Port's Barrel Blast followed by having this on tap later that night at Hamilton's in downtown

A - Cherry Brown mix, light colored with little to no head that seemed white or off tan

S - Pumpkin pie, rum undertones, sweet, with the spices of pumpkin pie

T - Like pumpkin pie in a glass spiked with rum - sweet, definite pumpkin, rum, and nutmeg and cinammon with a light alcohol finish

M - Creamy, refreshing, sweet, not overly heavy, though the sweetness and ABV can definitely get to you there was little to no heat - just you and the pumpkin pie

D - This was delicious - probably the best Avery beer I've ever tried. Definitely a seasonal thing that you need to be in the mood for and if you're not a fan of pumpkin pie you will hate this - it was literally like having a rum spiked pumpkin pie that you drink that wasn't quite as heavy and bloating. At 13.2% this could knock you off your feet and you wouldn't know what had hit you. I found this delicious and was fortunate enough to have had the taster and then on tap - so two different sources in one day to confirm. My brother also confirmed this was great - just like a pumpkin pie - so maybe a little "kitschy" but a must try since I was under the impression it was tap only - no bottles at Avery and apparently anywhere else that was fortunate enough to get a keg...
Delicious
