Avery Brewing - Beer Bloggers Conference 2010 – Boulder, CO
Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Rum aroma and flavoring. The rum was subtle yet enough for a nice warming affect. Oak from the barrels also came out. A well balanced brew.

beersearcher (2315) - Glendale, California, USA - NOV 8, 2010
The first sip of this is way hot. The burn is intense. After it sits, it tones down and becomes quite pleasant. Not in league with Rumpkin but worth a try.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2010
an unpleasant conflict of aspirin, rum-drizzled soggy vegetables, mossy wet oak and smoked leather. the texture is excessively rough and harsh, with a concrete, vitamin and chalk flavor and texture. an absolute mess.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Draught at Avery. Dark brown with nice tan head. Big roasty molasses syrup with fruit hop background, light-medium smoke. Taste is med roasted darker malts and fruitier profile than expected. Light smokey quality. An original and great brew. Smoked malt does not dominate but compliments. Faint rum barrel throughout.
