COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Great Pumpkin enhanced by aging in bourbon barrels. We add the pumpkin during the mash at precisely the right time to create just the perfect balance of malt, hops, pumpkin and spice.

Draft sample. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Tastes like pumpkin pie.The pumpkin and spices are perfectly balanced with the bourbon. Nothing stands out in place of the others and it works terrifically. An excellent pumpkin beer......even if its April.

Pours clear orange with a medium white head. Smells of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices, with a touch of bourbon. Taste is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, vanilla, bourbon, and subtle hints of wood. Medium-bodied with a slick wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Heavy Seas Mutiny Fleet The Greater Pumpkin (2013) finishes with a lingering spiciness.

Onslow (1102) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pour from a 22oz bomber. Darker amber brew with off white head. Big aroma dominated by cinnamon and other pumpkin spices, bourbon and booze. Taste is sweet malt and sour fruit (pumpkin) p front with a rather heavy handed spice coming forward and an added layer of bourbon and booziness in the finish. Big brew - lots of flavor and a kick. A bit much, to be frank.

22 oz bomber. The pour is a hazy amber with a decent off white head and some spotty lace. The nose is distinctly pumpkin. There is some various note of spice, cinnamon and all spice and a the light vanilla from the bourbon barrel. The flavor has much more vanilla, and the spices take a back seat to that. There is a light pumpkin presence, but the barrel dominates the flavor. The mouth feel is velvety, almost creamy with a delightful lingering in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle into glass. Orange hue with fine white head. Strong vanilla nose. In the mouth, more vanilla, you do get a sense of bourbon.the pumpkin flavor is light and in the background, and spices are basically non-existent. Somewhat more hops than I expect. Pretty good brew but not a lot of pumpkin character.

Way to much bourbon flavor for me. Could not get past the alcohol flavor and sadly that is not a flavor I like.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Aromas of pie spice, oak and bourbon. Orange color with a thin white head. Definite bourbon flavor with enough pumpkin ale substance to stand up to the ABV. Lingering pumpkin and alcohol flavor. Very cool take on pumpkin ale, but you’ll want to split this one with a friend or call a cab home.

9/23/2010. From bottle. Sampled together with the Great Pumpkin. This one is a little more complex and the added alcohol make it more interesting. Spice, pumpkin and malt leads the way with light hops.

Pours hazy amber color with off white head. Aromas of bourbon and pumpkin pie spices. Similar flavors. Not really a fan of pumpkin beers but this one was decent.
