COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the most worthy of pumpkin patches and during the silence of the midnight hour, the Greater Pumpkin raises up and pours a rich deep and burnished orange color. Heady aromas of bourbon, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and clove linger seductively over the thick white head of this tremendous brew. Its love at first sip as the full malt body, dominated by British crystal malt, brown sugar and pumpkin, slowly washes over your tongue. Bourbon barrel aging rounds out the flavors with notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon. Pairs well with crisp autumn weather, crunchy fallen leaves, and the knowledge that your kids will be asleep soon so you can raid their Halloween candy bags.

Previously 9% abv under the Mutiny Fleet series.

On tap at Jean bonnet. Big sweet and lots of caramel with the spice. You know it’s big from mouth and obvious alcohol

A big boozy pumpkin beer. Pours dark amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is strongly bourbon, sweet caramel and subdued cinnamon. Taste is along the same lines. Starts off caramel sweet, followed up with bourbon booziness and a hint of cinnamon in the back. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with a nice alcohol kick, but not too much burn. Overall, it’s a big, sweet, boozy beer, but the alcohol cuts the sweetness a bit to prevent it from being cloyingly sweet. Best enjoyed in a snifter on a cold autumn day.
