Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Pour is a dark copper bronze, fairly opaque. Not much head.

Nose is rich and big with apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little brandy.

Taste is absurdly boozy, such strong bourbon taste it bowls you over. Little hint of pumpkin spice, really tough to find other flavors buried under all the booze. Little more ale and pumpkin spice flavor as it warms.

Feel is sticky and medium full.

Wow. Perhaps aged a bit too long in those bourbon barrels. I like a BBA brew, but this is just more boozy than I would like. Gonna give it some time to warm and see if it improves.
