Roadsmary’s Baby is a traditional pumpkin ale with a Two Roads spin, it’s aged in rum barrels for added complexity and depth of flavor. The result is a smooth drinking ale with notes of pumpkin, spices, vanilla, oak and a touch of rum.

Aged in rum barrels, with spices added, plus some vanilla extract. It’s very rich and would be a good choice for a cold late-autumn night. There is really a lot of vanilla flavor, everything else takes more of a secondary role, IMO. The rum barrels give it a burnt sugar flavor reminiscent of Southern Tier’s Creme Brulee Stout. A nice innovative take on a pumpkin ale.

Thanks to Travlr for the CT rate and one hell of a pumpkin brew. Yep, it’s official. I like pumpkin beers, now. Like the other game-changers I’ve had this last year, Roadsmary’s Baby offers a whole bunch of real pumpkin taste with plenty of spices to go with. I can’t say the barrel-aging has added a lot of complexity, but I can’t complain considering the extremely tasty pumpkin dessert flavors. Roadsmary’s Baby isn’t quite potent enough to immediately drop you into nightmares about giving birth to the devil’s pumpkin spawn, but you’ll notice this has more booze than your typical autumn pumpkin beer. The grains and the gourds can be friends. I’m glad I’ve come to see the light.

(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr") Bottle. A- Pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, subtle vanilla. A- Amber color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, subtle alcohol. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, long spiced finish. O- Yum! Tasty! Delish! All of the above. This is a pumpkin beer done right. The pumpkin is balanced with everything else and the spices are diversed and not just a load of cinnamon or nutmeg but incorporates a plethora of spice nicely. Didn’t get a ton of vanilla, and any rum at all. Kind of wish they have played a bigger presence but no complaints from me on this one. Wish I had another!

Bottle thanks to Omar, opened at the Libertine November bottle share. Pours a light brown with small off white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice. Taste is a thinner pumpkin beer but still a nice mouthfeel for the style. Vanilla and maybe a bit of booze.
