Heavy Seas – The Great'er Pumpkin has just arrived at WiseGuys.  It puts a twist on pumpkin beer because it is an imperial pumpkin ale that is barrel aged.

Appearance The Great'er Pumpkin pours as a dark amber with a decent white head that dissipates quickly.

Smell – This ale smells like vanilla at the beginning followed by cinnamon & nutmeg aromas.

Taste The Great'er Pumpkin starts with a lot of pumpkin right up front.  Then it is followed by vanilla in the middle with tons of cinnamon.  It ends with a slight taste of nutmeg with some barrel & a surprising bitterness to wrap it up.

Mouth-feel – The mouth-feel on this ale is thin with a little carbonation.  I would have preferred it a little thicker.

Overall The Great'er Pumpkin is a good pumpkin ale falling under the imperial categories with a 10% abv.  It has tons of flavor.  Heavy Seas put a nice twist on this Pumpkin beer because it is barrel aged.  I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good pumpkin beer…especially because some of the others have come and gone for the season.  Don’t miss this one.

 

Cheers,

Beer Guy
