Avery Brewing Company

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.

Bottle poured into Founders CBS snifter. Pours a dull brown with no head whatsoever. Smell is wet wood with some hint of orange/red fruit. Mouthfeel is on the thicker side but no overly so. Taste is first tangy that gave me a twinge in my jaw (usually means sour/bitter), then a burst of brown sugar sweetness, and then the finish has as darkness to it that is musty that turns too sweet after about 3-5 seconds. Overall this is a decent beer but not sure if I will be buying it again. One thing of note is that there is absolutely no alcohol hint AT ALL, which is really weird. All this being said, I am usually not a huge fan of pumpkin beers, so the review might be slanted as such.
