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.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Sample at Bobís Bar. Hazy amber pour with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts, pumpkin and oak. Medium to full body with flavors of oaky bourbon, toasted pumpkin and pecans. The finish is slightly boozy with a roast malt and oak aftertaste. Above average overall.

Bottle. Poured amber with white head. Aroma is mixed pie spice, with some malt sweetness. Taste is mild spice with some alcohol warmth. Just ok

S_Side_Smitty (441) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours a nice copper color with a medium off white head. Aroma is a buttery, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, molasses, bourbonesque kinda thing. Taste is initially a lightly sweet, mildly spicy pumpkin. Those flavors lead to some malt flavors laced with the pumpkin pie spices and mild oaky bourbon. Finish is a spicy bitterness. Well made, not over the top, and definitely not cloying.

rumproasts (2846) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 24, 2013
bottle. deep amber orange with small head. iím not a big fan of pumpkin beers, nor over the top barrel aged beers. however, this beer is absolutely wonderful. the pumpkin is balanced by a good amount of spice, and the level of bourbon is just about perfect -- a complement rather than a distraction. highly recommended.

Wow, this is a different twist on pumpkins! The bourbon barrel really stands out in the aroma and dominates the flavor as well. It pours a pretty rustic orange with a thin white head that doesnít leave much lacing. The pumpkin flavor is really low key and is there simply to compliment that bourbon flavor. Interesting and unique to anything Iíve ever had. Very good!!

Bottle. Iíve never been a huge fan of pumpkin beers, but if you gotta have one, this is it. Rich, thick. Spicy. Nice head. Big time clove and nutmeg spice piling on the gourd. Delicious on a cold fall evening. (#5301, 10/20/2013)

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Great stuff. Bottle from WineWorks split over a horror movie. Aroma is pumpkin spice (mostly clove), tart oak, and caramel. Pours bright orange with decent film but not too much carbonation. Taste is warm and delicious. Heavy notes of oak, some spice, and a nice caramel booze taste. The heavy oak in this sets it apart. Very enjoyable.

Aromas of spice, pumpkin, and some bourbon. Bone colored frothy head and murky orange body. Pumpkin, bourbon, and gingerbread flavor. Smooth and a little hot on the palate.

Emeister84 (918) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Aromas of nutmeg, vanilla, pumpkin, and subtle whiskey. Hazy amber with a somewhat lasting beige head. Spicy and strong, with a touch of sweetness. Medium-full bodied, smooth, and finishes with plenty of vanillin and bourbon.
