Roadsmary's Baby | Two Roads Brewing Company. Poured from the can into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick and off-white, with spotty lacing, and a very deep brownish body.

Smells a bit boozy, not too overwhelming on the spices.

The barrel-aging really adds an enjoyable element to this, again, not too spicy pumpkin ale.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll choose to rate Roadsmary's Baby | Two Roads Brewing Company with a 4.

Cool name and the idea is a little intriguing. Had to pick one up for Halloween. Pours a dark amber with a creamy thick head. Smell is pumpkin with some spices. I like the creaminess but the taste is lacking. Not much malt or kick. Nice to sip but not my thing.

An almost root beer color with medium light carbonation. Body was just about a medium
Aroma was a mix of malt and rum first. Everything advertised as far as flavor showed up. Nothing dominated which was a very good thing, allowed all the flavors to show up
Overall it was one of the better pumpkin beers I've had and would try it again

I normally don't like rum based beers but this one was quite good. Also a good balance of vanilla and spices with little vegital flavor. May pick it up again sometime.

This has complexity not normally seen in a lot of the pumpkins I rely on this time of year. The rum is at the forefront, but also various malts and typical pumpkin spice. This is a very interesting pumpkin worth trying if not my favorite.

This beer strikes a nice balance between the pumpkin/squash flavor, the spices (not too much), and the rum. There's not a whole lot of actual rum flavor, but there is some nice vanilla sweetness without becoming cloying. It is interesting at any rate for being a non-high ABV rum barrel-aged beer.

I like the Two Roads Brewery and this offering is a good one. Don't usually venture into the pumpkin category, but this brew is not too sweet and has a nice kick.

A very nice pumpkin. Not too sweet, but complex. The rum barrels creates a nice complexity.
Well done!

Roadsmary's Baby brewed by Two Roads Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.80% This Pumpkin Beer pours out a nice light brown color with a small off white head. There is also some nice lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is Rich with spices, pumpkin, malts and grians. You also pick up on a nice sweetness, rum and vanilla. So far this is a nice inviting pumpkin brew. Lots going on in this brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with flavors. The spices and pumpkin are what you pick up on first. Then there is a nice mild smoothness of grains and malts. The end is the rum sweetness mixed with vanilla. Definitely a different mix for a pumpkin brew. This brew dose put you in the mind set of pumpkin pie. The body of Roadsmary's Baby is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. I can't get over how smooth this brew goes down, it is really hard to pick up on the 6.80% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Clean, Smooth, Spicy, Pumpkin and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Roadsmary's Baby a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to.Two Roads Brewing Company, did a real super nice job with pumpkin brew.

Canned on 8/27/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a glowing auburn with some haze to it; off-white head that fades leaving decent retention and lacing. The aromas are malt forward along with some subtle hints of rum in the background. Some caramel and ginger. Not much cinnamon or spices coming through in the aroma department until it slightly warms. The flavors have the rum leading the way without completely dominating, but it's definitely leading the way. Some graham crackers in the mix. The spices are mild. More caramel. Malts do their thing. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's sharp, crisp and smooth.

This is an interesting pumpkin ale. It's a little rough around the edges, but it ultimately comes together. It becomes more enjoyable the more you get into it and as it warms a bit. It might not be super crazy, but it's not bad. It's somewhat unique for the style.
