Avery Brewing Company – Rumpkin (2012)

28 Aug

AlexAA: deep, clear mahagonny w/ carbonation + no head, sticky sweet molasses musk from rum barrels – thick air! 8/10

AlexTM: candied sugars + barley malt drip through this yeasty, syrupy ale – the rum overtones control all but the ginger in the spicing 7/10

AlexP: hard to say the quantity, as there are many conflicting flavors – the ale is dense and sweet, and the pumpkins are candy coated 3/10

AlexO: Sipper for sure, it deserves a decanter for its smooth smack on the way down – probly could cure most ills, too, w/ this kick! 78/100

NicAA: Light cola color with very little head. Aroma is strongly of rum and spices, liqueur-like. Oaky, cinnamon, alcohol. 8/10

NicTM:Very strong rum flavor, with a little sweet from molasses and moderate fall spices. Light liquor burn in finish. High carb, thick 8/10

NicP: Pumpkin really got lost in here for me under the extremely strong liquor and oak profile. More a spiced oak beer. 0 pumpkins

NicO: Fireside sippin’ pumpkin, which isn’t pumpkiny but is big and interesting nonetheless. Rum barrels is a novel take and it works. 81/100
