COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Chatoe Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale.

The newest addition to the Chatoe Rogue series is Pumpkin Patch Ale, a beer made using fresh pumpkins grown in a patch that borders Rogue’s 42 acre hop yard. The pumpkins are picked, loaded into Rogue’s farm truck, driven immediately 77 miles to our brewery in Newport, quickly roasted, and pitched into the brew kettle to create a batch of Pumpkin Patch Ale.

This isn’t a bad beer, it just isnt a very interesting beer. The pumpkin is subtle, which is fine, but it’s mostly boring.

Pour is a slight hazy dark orange almost mahogony.Reminded me of Sam Adams harvest pumpkin almost and in taste as well. Aroma is clove with cinnamon with slight bready/nutmeg/ginger maybe.Some subtle pumpkin pie tones. Seems the flavor of the spices hits pretty hard compared to the aroma. Body is nice its creamy with pumpkin slick,clovey finish maybe bitter or classic rogue bittering. A little harsh finish,drys out too almost alcoholy.Some breadiness but is dominated by clove dryness and the bittering in the finish. I almost want to think that its the spices giving this harsh astrigency. Whatever it is its an unmatching bitter. Im not liking the finish on this,think I may age the other bottle I have.I think this just came out

big orange bottle. pours a clear amber with a small, stable, cream colored head. aroma has notes of toast, pumpkin, light spice addition. medium bodied with moderate carbonation. cinnamon stands out mostly in the spices while toasty bready malts provide backbone for vegetal pumpkin. it’s good. it has a nice farm fresh flavor.

750 ml bottle, 2012 vintage in the orange bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a copper/orange color with about an inch light tan head. Head retention is good, and there’s a small amount of lacing. The aroma is nice, it smells like pumpkins, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a bit of ginger. Nice balance between the pumpkin and spices in the aroma. Taste is similar to the aroma, but the flavor seems to be more pumpkiny than spicy although the spices are noticeable. The taste reminds me of eating pumpkin bread. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. I think this is a good overall pumpkin ale. A bit pricey at $9.99 a bottle so I probably wouldn’t pick this one up very often, but it’s definitely worth trying.

This was an interesting pumpkin beer in the respect that it focuses primarily on the flavor of the pumpkin. There are light spice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg present but much less so than many other pumpkin beers I’ve had. Pours a dark orange/rust hue into the glass with a small white head. Big aromas of roasted pumpkin with some spices. Big pumpkin flavor and a refreshing finish. Overall, not my favorite pumpkin beer but props to them for showcasing that pumpkin flavor so much it was a good brew and I’d recommend trying it.

This has not been a good year for pumpkin beers, at least from my perspective. Lots of stuff that tastes more like an overly spiced mess than any pumpkin. This one, however, is, y’know, pumpkin-y. I get a nice roasted vegetable character, some light spices, and even a little hop bit. Not bad.

Bomber pours a healthy orange amber with a white head. Aromas of pumpkin pie spice vanilla caramel malts some grainy cooked vegetable pumpkin flavor also cloves and allspice. Flavor is slightly sweet and body is medium and very palatable. Finishes semi-sweet

Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, vanilla, clove, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It pours a dark, mostly transparent, amber with a touch of haze. It has a two finger khaki head with decent retention and some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light caramel that is quickly overtaken by moderate toasted pumpkin in the middle. The finish has light clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this really is a pumpkin beer with some light spice as opposed to a pumpkin pie spiced beer. For my tastes, there’s definitely enough pumpkin here that a little more spice would have been nice.

Bottle with Carla from Belmont Station. Pours a hazy dark amber with off-white foam. Smells sweet like sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. Tastes slightly squashy with hints of salt, alcohol and lots of pumpkin pie.

Lacking in aroma. Pours with a very thick and heavy head. Could use a little more body. Pumpkin flavor really comes out at the end.
