Batch #3 | 2016 Edition
The Avery brewery has a fine reputation. A reputation for being somewhat daring, visionary even.
In this, their latest hand crafted brew they have blended their fine porter beer with pumpkins. Then they jam-packed it full of delicious spices; nutmeg, allspice, cloves and cinnamon before aging it for six months in bourbon barrels. These imbued into it an oaky, sticky vanilla and molasses sweetness, and a thoroughly alcoholic taste. They called this new limited edition seasonal brew Pump[ky]n.
Opaque brown in the glass with a thin white head that dissipates quickly, the aroma is warm and spicey and the mouth-feel is big, boozy and robust. This is one for Halloween, or Thanksgiving dinner, maybe along with a generous helping of Pecan Pie?
