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

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, its just meaty and almost creamy enough to handle the potent spices. This tastes just like what Id imagine it would be like to chew on a pumpkin stem. Its 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. Its 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 isnt 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.

Appearance: It pours a dark orange-brown with a beige head and some streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly spicy, with a nice balance between the sweetness and the bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a bit of a tingle, and a smooth, spicy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a really quality pumpkin beer. It has a lot of spice and a really solid flavor to it. Id definitely put this one at or near the top of the style.

This beer has a very good looking brown color with some subtle amber undertones. It has a thick creamy head. The pumpkin flavor doesn't really come through but it is a well made good tasting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (7594) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie, nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of nutmeg, clove, peanut butter, pumpkin. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Delightful stuff. Most of the holiday spice-pumpkin beers on shelves are pretty crappy, to be honest, so this one shines in comparison. For some reason its really hard to find something clean, enticing, and drinkable in this style. The nutmeg and clove are prominent here, but they dont drown out all of the other delightful elements...peanut butter aroma is distinct and unique and somehow works in this context. Rich, sweet malt in the mouth with *just* enough to balance...very flavorful without being a train wreck. It would be better if it was just *slightly* more attenuated, but its not fatiguing. Mouthfeel is not great, but not bad. Not the type of beer I ever crave, but fun to try and a very good example.
