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 Rogueís 42 acre hop yard. The pumpkins are picked, loaded into Rogueís 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.

The aroma is pumpkin like with spice, caramel malt, and paper. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall interesting but not overly impressive.

A dimly standard beer, there is a slight taste of the pumpkin. Its very clean beer, little substance but tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is pumpkin-forward but with only the most subtle hints of spice (and I might just be pretending itís there) and a sort of darkness to it. Like earth, raisin, and dirt. Flavor is earthy and toasty as well with a subtle pumpkin flavor factoring in. No spice really. Finishes with the pumpkin fading to the background and toast, roast and earth taking the front. Medium bodied and creamy mouthfeel, I will be forever grateful that Rogue can make a drinkable beer feel substantial. Itís good stuff, and I admire the subtlety but sorry, at this price point, I want freakiní fireworks with a pumpkin beer (that wonít affect the rating, but I had to say it).

Very delicious beer. You can really taste all the ingredients from the pumpkin to the spices. One of the better Chatoe Rogues.

This is one of the better pumpkin beers Iíve had. VERY rich in pumpkin flavor. Where many pumpkin beers highlight their spice cocktails, especially those heavy in nutmeg and cloves, this is pumpkin heavy. Very drinkable, very attractive beer. Gift from Nick.

Cloudy amber with a nice head a little funkiness on the aroma. Nice balance of spice to pumpkin and possibly vanilla with a spicy bitter finish.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, damp wood caramel and toffee. Dark amber brown hue with an off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied with average carbonation. Overall a good pumpkin ale but not the best out there. No need to try again.

Big orange bottle. Pours brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is much the same, not much sweetness. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!

I have a relative amount of faith in this one, even though the last off-kilter beer from Rogue that I rated was more of a disappointment than not. Still, they make good beer. This one has a mostly a muddy dark brown color, especially if you end up with the beer form the bottom half of the bottle. Its aroma is of strong spices, a fruity sweetness, and is smoothed out by some fibrous, meaty pumpkin. I emphasize "smooth" over "spice". In the mouth, itís just meaty and almost creamy enough to handle the potent spices. This tastes just like what Iíd imagine it would be like to chew on a pumpkin stem. Itís green and earthy and has hints of pumpkin meat, but is mostly very plant-like. Neither the spices nor the pumpkin seem to dominate the beer. Itís extremely well-balanced between the two, but neither one lets you in on the fact that this has any other ingredients. It finishes extremely smooth, bright on the palate, and an almost sticky sweetness decorates the beer with a hint of dirt. This isnít your every day drinking beer, but would go great with some pork chops or a Thanksgiving ham.

22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice, a lot of caramel malts, and floral hops. Flavor the same, with a nice blend of malts and pumpkin. Average to smooth texture. A good pumpkin beer.
