AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Batch 002. Pours a nice dark amber with absolutely zero carbonation. Aromas are pumpkin, caramel, and very active rum and wood scents. Flavors are exactly like the nose predicts, though there are some more nuanced spices mixed in and the alcohol flavors are tremendously good. The palate is super heavy and coats the tongue with a near liquor level of sticky, but even a little carbonation would help this out. Overall, this is a stellar beer, definitely the best pumpkin beer I have tasted, but a little too heavy and big to enjoy all the time; where it really wins is in the bottle size, 12 oz. is perfect for a beer this big.

Deep amber color, small beige head. Sweet and spicy aromas with caramel, alcohol, butterscotch, pumpkins, raisins and slight oranges. Very sweet taste with candy sugar, caramel, alcohol, toffee, vanilla, pumpkins, raisins and syrup. Insanely sweet. Pretty cool.

Brandy-like nose with hints of spiced rum. Ruddy color, cloudy. Very sweet taste with a sugary dollop on your lips. Very nice sipping beer with a good pumpkin taste. Nice one.

Linnet (1892) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2017
Rum, pumpkins, alcohol, heavy spices, butterscotch, dried prunes and raisins. Dark hazy amber colour, no head. Heavy alcohol, pumpkins, spices, lots of rum, brown sugar, caramel, very sweet, lightly tart, low bitterness. Full bodied, soft carbonation, slick feel, sweet and warming finish. Powerful, carries abv well, but one-dimensionally sweet.

My bottle has it at 16.9%. Only the fact that this is Avery and it's the season caused me to purchase this, as I don't much care for pumpkin beers. That said, this is great, the pumpkin is subtle but there. It's strong bit not overly sweet. So often, if I know a beer is a top 50, or higher, I find it overrated. Not here. Plain delicious.wotth the price too.

pictoman (1186) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2017
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle (bottle 17 Aug 2016; ABV listed as 17.5%). Clear deep orangey brown with quickly dissipating off white head. Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, mild alcohol kick that is more sweet than boozy. Another dangerous beer from Avery with a deceptively high ABV.

Avery has that knack for making insanely boozy beers highly drinkable. Rumpkin might just be their best-executed example of that. This orange-brown brew looks as autumnal as it smells. Malty, boozy, and spicy nose with a large dose of pumpkin. Toasted sugar, vanilla, toffee, pumpkin, and mild chocolate flavors. This tastes like the bastard child of pumpkin pie and rum cake... just with more alcohol. Amazingly smooth for 18.1%. This is definitely one to enjoy with a friend, or it might give you sea legs.

HuskerTan (2339) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - AUG 25, 2017
Bottle. A- Rum, spice, burnt caramel. A- Dark copper color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Rum, brown sugar, burnt caramel, butterscotch, spice. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- At a year old this is still pretty boozy yet balanced and not overpowering. You feel the 18% but it drinks more like 8%. Basically tastes like if Captain Morgan made a pumpkin flavored rum. Really quite tasty.

DiarmaidBHK (5722) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Taster at Eggspectation Chantilly. Pours brown with a thin head. Massive pumpkin and booze on the nose. Lots of booze on the tongue along with the rum and the huge pumpkin spices. Finish lingers a bit. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

4.2
magsinva (1423) - Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Tap @ Eggspectation Chantilly- Pours deep orange brown with no head, but a few tiny bubbles. Aroma is fabulous, rum, brown sugar, pumpkins, seeet potatoes, and all things autumnal.
