BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Avery Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 16.90%

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.

big, boozy pumpkin pie flavors. Make no mistake, this is a pumpkin pie beer, but it's an 18% abv version. It's sweet, it's got lots of cinnamon, malt, and booze. very well crafted however.

Not worth the 12$ however.

BEER #1500!!!

A- Dark, opaque, brown and orange.
S- Rum, Rum, and more rum. If there is pumpkin in there it's hard to pick up on. Still delicious!
T- I get a hint of pumpkin ale but dominated by rum. Maybe bc this is from 2014 and the pumpkin has faded.
M- GREAT carb for such a heavy barrel aged beer. Very impressed!
D- One and done but makes a SUPERB sipper. I hope that I can trade for more!

Look: Ruby red goodness. Dark white halo. Slick curtains
Smell: This smells really good. Fresh earthy pumpkin goodness. Aromas of a spiced pumpkin pie with fun.
Taste: Earthy pumpkin goodness with faded rum flavors. Sweetness.
Feel: Maybe syrupy. Some stickiness left over in the mouth after consumption.

Overall - Spiced pumpkin in a barley-wine. Bold and sweet.

I may have made the mistake of drinking this 18%er 12 days after the bottling date. Overwhelming booziness overwhelmed any of the virtues the beer may have otherwise possessed. Unless you like a mega-booze bomb, I suggest giving Rumpkin substantial time to age before diving in!

I let this one sit a year before drinking it. I'm sure I could've let it sit longer without flavor or carbonation being an issue. This is the BIGGEST pumpkin beer I've had to date. I poured it from the bottle into a snifter, and it poured like a meaty barleywine. Smells and tastes lightly of pumpkins with big rum barrel flavor over all the rich, sweet malt. It's big, well-spiced, and tasty. Thick mouthfeel akin to barrel-aged barleywines and old ales. A serious sipper. Definitely worth a try.

Smells great. Very sweet, has a great deal of effervescence. Can taste the rum, spices, and finishes with a sweet candy hint.

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!
