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.

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

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.
