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.

22oz bottle, fall 2010 vintage. Pours hazy amber/copper with a one finger off-white head that leaves good spotty lacing and holds a good cap. Aroma is pumpkin, spices: clove, ginger, cinnamon, clove, not much bourbon on the nose although good overall strength. Flavor is pumpkin, spices such as ginger, clove, nutmeg, a little cinnamon, fair bourbon whiskey, light vanilla, malty, light hop presence, alcohol makes an appearance, long spiced finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, medium carbonation, creamy. Good pumpkin beer, less bourbon than expected. A big beer that needs sharing as 22oz would be too much for one person.

Cloudy orange, minimal head. Sweet pumpkin, spice, vanilla and oak, aroma quite nice. Flavor much the same, vanilla, and sweet bourbon take over as it warms, at times a bit much for me. Sticky sweet palate and mouthfeel. Decent overall.

arone12 (924) - Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Pours a hazy brownish orange color with a nice light brown head. Smells like a fresh pumpkin pie fresh from the oven. I detect hints of bourbon as well as a nice roasted maltiness. Taste is of slight pumpkin pies with some herby undertones and a nice bourbon aftertaste. One of the best heavy seas beers I have had. Tasty.

22oz bottle. My first "oak barrel aged" beer. Poured a cloudy orange/amber with a white head of small bubbles that doesn’t last long. Nose all over the place - malt ,spices, and pumpkin, not much in the way of hops. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. Taste of malt, pumpkin, spices...and OMG that oak barrel aging! FANTASTIC. At 9% AVB, get a designated driver. This is a GREAT specialty beer for a cold night after dinner. Another great Maryland beer!

Thin head of off-white bubbles. Interesting aroma. Lots of bananas! No question about it. It is like they sliced a fresh banana and dropped it into the glass. Little bit of sweet caramel and butterscotch which would be coming from the bourbon barrels. Color is a cloudy copper orange. Wow, quite the tasty brew. Definately a bunch of alcohol smacks you up front but it melds nicely with the pumpkin and spices. Malts, spices and butterscotch round out the flavor. This brew is actually quite soft on the palate and pretty damn smooth. If you like pumpkin brews this one is definately a winner. Finishes malty and spicy witha bit of lingering alcohol. I like this one alot!

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of pumpkin, vanilla, and slight spice. No Bourbon aroma. Poured orange in color with a tiny, off-white head that lasted throughout only as a film on top of the beer, and around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of pumpkin, light alcohol, slight caramel, light banana, vanilla, and slight spice. Medium body. Slick texture becomes lightly dry. Average carbonation. Pumpkin, light caramel, light vanilla, and light banana finish is dry. 9%ABV is present in the flavor, but not hot or overwhelming.

Bottle sample at the Heavy Seas tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits back in October. Hazy amber pour with a medium tan head. Cinnamon nose with caramel malt and booze. Boozy flavor with cinnamon, malt and a bready, boozy finish. Not bad, but the version without the barrel is better.
