Brewed by:
Avery Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

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.

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.

This beer is a beast!

I rarely do a review this way but hey, it is what it is.

This beer is medium to full with moderate carbonation. It's like sipping on a rum covered chocolate bar. The vanilla takes over & so does the rum character.

This beer is no joke. It's high ABV is very noticeable & it burns in a good way! Look for it & trade for it! If you like a stout that's sweet with a high ABV, you'll love this!
