This beer is one of my favorites

I have tried virtually all of the pumpkin beers there are at my liquor store. They have around 25 so in my opinion this one tops them all.

Yes very pricey at 12 dollars a bottle. It is 25 oz. though so that is not bad.

It is very hard to describe but has a full flavor and does not lack in the pumpkin department like a lot of pumpkin beers.

You must purchase the beer first and foremost to understand it, Rogue did a great job and I will be trying more of their beer shortly.

One of my fav breweries. Have not had one that I don't love. They are now popping up all over the place. I would love to see more on tap but as of now have only seen Dead guy. I figured living in Chicago I might see more but no dice! If any one has any info on the bars that carry it around my town let me know!!

22oz bomber poured into a glass

A: Cloudy amber with a medium creamy head

S: A wonderful sweet aroma of pumpkins, brown sugar, and spices.

T: Natural pumpkin flavor. Just balanced and perfect. Brown sugar and nutmeg. Some malt.

M: Creamy, medium carbonated.

Overall: Holy crap Rogue just may have made one of the best pumpkin beers out there.

Pours deep mahogany/amber with orange hues and a white head that settles out to about 1 cm. Nose is pumpkin, a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, some caramel, brown sugar, a little bit of raisin and fig and a bit more pumpkin. Most pumpkin ales smell mostly like spices but this one really smells like straight up pumpkin. The taste is more spiced than the smell. Nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, pumpkin, caramel malts, brown sugar, molasses and raisins. Dogfish Head Punkin Ale has always been my favorite pumpkin beer but this year two have given it a run for its money, Epic Imperial Pumpkin Porter and this bad boy. I will be looking forward to this every year now. I hope I can get one more this year too. Rogue's Chatoe line has been pretty impressive.

As a connoisseur of Rogue beers as well as a big pumpkin fan, I felt a need to review this one.

Bought a bomber at Wegmans in Collegeville, PA.
Poured into a mug.

Great brownish/amber appearance. Minimal head, maybe 1 finger with solid balanced lacing.

Very good smell, the pumpkin is the primary thing, the other spices minimal.
This carries over into the taste as many pumpkin beers tend to overload the nutmeg, clove, allspice, etc., Rogue did a tremendous job of focusing on what's advertised: Pumpkin!

I really enjoyed the mouthfeel as I drank the entire bottle. Great balance, some hoppy flavoring making the pumpkin stand out with the dry nature.

Probably my new favorite pumpkin beer, although it is a bit pricey.

4.55/5  rDev +18.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

750 ml bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
5.6% ABV,

A - From the highly visible (and quite cool) orange bottle, this deep copper beer pours with clarity, carbonation streaming to the well retained light ivory head.

S - Pumpkin pie in a pint, Rogue's Pumpkin patch keeps everything in order perfectly; malt provides a wonderful crumbly crust filled with gooey pumpkin puree and a happy mess of spices from cinnamon to nutmeg, clove to cardamom. Orange peel and vanilla bean add a nice twist to a classic aroma!

T - Hearty maltiness is beefed up in flavor, bringing in toasted wheat bread crust slathered in warm, sticky caramel and sprinkled with spice and a pinch of cocoa. The usual suspects are here but cardamom, orange peel, and vanilla lend themselves very well to this beer, just like the aroma suggests. Dry roasted pumpkin seed flavor caps off this harmonious beer.

M - Smooth and medium bodied, this pumpkin ale feels like a dense slice of pie at first but sharp carbonation cuts through the feel and lightens it up, transitioning to a dry, spicy finish very nicely.

O - Round, well-balanced, and enjoyable, not only is Rogue's Pumpkin Patch a wonderful conglomeration of malt, gourd, and spice, but the fact this fall seasonal wasn't brewed until their pumpkins were ready for the beer means that it didn't hit the market in July like all the rest of the pumpkin beers, and for that I'm overly grateful to Rogue.

*As for the complaints about the price tag, it's a "Grow Your Own" bottle which means it's safe to assume using "home" grown hops, barley, and pumpkins might be a little bit more labor intensive than having it shipped to one's doorstep.

4.53/5  rDev +18%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours thickly out of a big orange bottle into a tall glass stein, dark amber with a soapy white head.

Smells a little ashen and peaty, a little like pie spice. A strange and not particularly inviting blend, although it firms up a bit as the beer warms, starts smelling more like a run of the mill pumpkin ale.

Tastes like an *excellent* pumpkin ale. Roasted, almost lightly burned spice up front, moving into fresher, sugary-er spice in the middle (more pie-like) with big nodes of cinnamon and nutmeg. This segues gently into the most pumpkiny pumpkin nodes I've ever come across in a beer--it's like fresh, seasoned puree. Really great stuff. The flavor ends with a resurgence of vanilla along with more fresh pumpkin, and blended with an exceptionally creamy body the effect is quite similar to spritzing some Readi-Whip on top of a slice of pie.

4.51/5  rDev +17.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Head is tan to off white and is considerable. Deep pumpkin color with dark brown tones.

S: Cinnamon, Pumpkin, Nutmeg, Cloves, Anise, Orange, Vanilla, Chinese Five Spice.

T: Roasted pumpkin pie. IF Pumpkin Pie were a beverage this would be it. I would say it is missing whipped cream... but it almost has that quality as well. Full marks. Roasted and dry, this beer is fantastic. Pumpkin really shines as a part of the beer's flavor profile instead of just being an add on flavor.

M: Light to Medium bodied. Fantastic carbonation.

O: It is July. It feels like early October in my mouth. Fantastic. I don't normally agree with the Rogue beers... but this one is heads and tails above the rest. Truly a treat to drink.
