Avery Rumpkin (Review)

While Avery produces a lot of great beers, I am most impressed with the Rumpkin. The Rumpkin is taking pumpkin beers to the next level! This beer is unique and its carefully combined flavors complement each other nicely. The Rumpkin is a very big beer clocking in at 15.9% and I want to see what it evolves into with a little age. It pours a solid copper color with a thin white head. On the nose the Rumpkin provides a big hit of rum with spices. It is pleasant and alluring, but dangerous. The Rumpkin is sweet, filled with lots of rum, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. There is a little pumpkin and little carbonation as well. But this big beer is certainly worth trying if you can find it. Avery’s Rumpkin ranks highly in the best pumpkin beers I have tried and a contender for my beer of the year list.
