Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mcallister on 07-28-2010

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.

Very aromatic fragrance. It smells like the perfect fall beer! I enjoyed the taste, but I tend to compare every pumpkin beer I drink to Southern Tier's Pumking, and all fall short. :) I enjoy the combination of malts and spices in this high-gravity beer. The 10% can sneak up on you as it doesn't taste quite that heavy.
Overall, this is definitely a beer I will enjoy again many times, but nothing, still, compares to Pumking. :)
