Beer of the Week 10/11: Roadsmary's Baby
Beer: Roadsmary's Baby
Type: Rum Barrel-Aged Ale
Brewer: Two Roads Brewing Co.
Location: Stratford, CT
In the spirit of Halloween, this beer caught my attention while scouring the shelves for a solid fall beer. A pumpkin ale in October can seem “cliche”, but first of all, IDGAF! They are delicious!
What really made this stand out and catch my attention was how well all the flavors came together. Roadsmary’s Baby combines pumpkin, spices, vanilla, oak and a hint of rum to tie it all together.
Using the rum barrels makes for a great aroma and gives you the full pumpkin flavor without it being sweet. If you’re like me and don’t want a cinnamon and sugar rim on your beer then this is the pumpkin ale for you.
Much like the movie, this beer is scary good, and can get you scary tipsy because you’ll always want another!
