Bottle. Like the orange bottle. Orangish copper color. Aroma is of spice and slightly sweet. Taste like, well, pumpkin pie. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks dark, clear mahogany with a small amount of tan foam dissipating rather quickly. Aromas of pumpkin, molasses, and a little booze. It’s got a mild sweet pumpkin flavor, also malty and effervescent. Medium bodied and just a hint of bitterness in the finish. It’s a great pumpkin brew, not trying to be a pumpkin pie in a bottle, just showcasing the natural sweetness, although it is also just a touch vegetal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep slightly hazy orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma has some subtle pumpkin notes with most of the standard spices, cinnamon, nutmeg. Flavor starts with the same, a little vegetable-y with some spiciness, a bit on the potpourri side with a sweet finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. A little heavy on that potpourri note but not bad

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on Christmas Eve 2012 with Kristen. Pours a semi clear dark amber copper with small ring of khaki head. Very pleasant nose of cinnamon, clove, and star anise, almost potpourri. Flavor is more pumpkin and earthy vegetal, but in a very good way, not the typical ’off flavor’ vegetal. Bitterness on the backside and the lingering aftertaste is not that good. Pumpking still reigns supreme!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aroma of spices, nutmeg and pumpkin; flavours of sweet malts, pumkin, slight citrus and lingering spices. Like a Southern Tier Pumpking.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep mahogany with a medium off-white head. Smell is pumpkin with some gentle spice notes. Taste is pumpkin, hints of caramel, and a tiny touch of spice. Medium-bodied with a smooth, slightly wet texture and mildly prickly mouth-carbonation, Chatoe Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale finishes with pumpkin dominance.

Nice brew poured out of bomber. Fresh tasting with emphasis on the pumpkin as opposed to pumpkin spices like a lot of other pumpkin ales. A little overpriced IMO, but good brew.

Boat loads of spice. Nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamon. Im not sure i get much pumpkin. Its tasty, but also a bit cloying. I dont see drinking more than a glass. Dry herbal finish. Too spicy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured slightly cloudy medium reddish-amber with a tall, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up fresh pumpkin meat, nutmeg, and cinnamon over soft biscuity malts.. light detergenty accents.. nice and earthy overall. The flavor opened with sharp-ish carbonation, quickly followed by pumpkin meat and biscuity malts.. more nutmeg, cinnamon, and some cloves toward the back and through the finish. Light-medium bodied and spicy on the palate.. I could’ve used a little more pumpkin meat, but it was still good.

A latecomer to the LCBO Fall Release program (just started showing up in stores this week). The beer pours a slightly hazed ruby red colour with a generous tan head that lasted a minute or so. Aroma is pumpkin, malt, funk and spices. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is grainy malt, pumpkin, and spices. Well put together, but not outstanding.
