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.

Bottle: Cloudy brown/orange with some floaties and a frothy, vanilla shaded head. ....Straight up pumpkin pie aroma...... Sharp pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavour. Very light bourbon, but it’s there. Sweet , spicy and rich. A standout pumpkin beer.

Pours a hazy orange with a small off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, vanilla, oak with a splash of bourbon in a pumpkin beer. Flavor of the same mix. Really well done pumpkin base beer and the barrel aging just brings it to the next level without over doing it.

RSeltzer (12) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Poured from bomber. Perfect copper color with little head and nice fall spice aroma. Those fall spices stick around on the pallette, along with a pumpkin taste, oak flavor and nice strong hit of vanilla. Bourbon burn is a good touch. The only drawback is the high abv sweetness. A very, very nice barrel aged pumpkin.

Keg @ Sedona. Amber pour with a small head. Huge allspice aroma. A bit if toffee and vanilla booziness. Suggests that a fat, sugary beast lays in wait. Flavor is what’d you’d expect. Caramel and burn brown sugar. Bruised apple and cinnamon. Sweet vanilla. Slightly hot on the finish.

Bomber. Pours medium amber with a beige head that fades to a ring. Aroma is toffee, cinnamon, clove. Strong spice nose. Flavor has all that, plus pumpkin and a hint of bourbon in the finish. This is good, and I’m not one of those pumpkin beer nuts.
