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.

drewaha (129) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Pours a nice amber with minimal head. Smells of cinnamon. Fairly light body and taste for that matter. The alcohol is definitely well hidden. Slightly sweet on the way in and a moderate bitterness on the way down. A decent pumpkin but not as good as Pumking or Shipyard’s Imperial Pumpkin this year.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours cloudy orange, almost brown. Not a huge head. Nose of vanilla, pumpkin, sweet potato, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Odd sugars. Similar taste, but sweet and with some pie crust notes. A bit hot. Bourbon is well balanced. One of the few pumpkin beers I’d buy again.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Cloudy brown orange pour with off white head. Nose of pumpkin, spice, some bourbon sweetness. Taste is the strongest pumpkin beer I’ve had yet from the bourbon blast. Still the nutmeg and cinnamon shine as well. The flavors were nice, but there was something slightly off with this. I guess I am trying to over think a pumpkin beer. On that note it compares very highly to other pump offerings.

riversideAK (5831) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Nose of spiced pumpkin ale notes, light vanilla, some bourbon. Nice nose. Hazy orange pour, nice bubbles, thin head. Sweet pumpkin spice, cinamon, vanilla, bourbon, pumpkin pie in the finish. Somewhat sweet, somewhat full, bourbon is lighter and more complimentary than others. Interesting.

alexsdad06 (7466) - Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has huge pumpkin with all of the usual spices, bourbon, vanilla and sweet malts. The flavor has more big pumpkin with allspice and nutmeg, bourbon, vanilla, and sweet malts. This did get a touch boozy as it warmed. Although slightly sticky and sweet, I did enjoy this more than most pumpkin beers.
