Notes: After letting our GABF Gold Medal winning imperial pumpkin stout rest in bourbon barrels for over a year, we added cocoa nibs for an extra layer of rich, chocolate flavor. The result is a decadent ale with mellowed spices, complex malt character, and balanced bourbon notes.

Pumpkinator Aged in Bourbon Barrels with Cocoa Nibs has a thin, yellowish head, no lacing, and a dark brown, opaque, bubbly appearance. The aroma is of bourbon, brown bread crust, and background vegetable matter and spices. Bourbon and cocoa take the taste lead, with faded pumpkin and spice notes. Pumpkinator Aged in Bourbon Barrels with Cocoa Nibs has a heavy body, a velvety mouthfeel, and a sweet finish. RJT
