Tommyknocker - Small Patch Pumpkin Harvest Ale

Straight from the mountains of Colorado comes the next pumpkin beer to face the Drunken Jackos scale. Tommyknocker Small Patch Pumpkin Harvest Ale pours nice and dark for a pumpkin beer, due in part to the molasses that it is brewed with.

After pouring the rich, dark beer into the glass, I noticed a subtle, spicy, earthy aroma. Not so much pumpkin as much as nutmeg. The taste was surprisingly light and somewhat sweet with a hint of cinnamon. Again, I think the molasses plays a part in sweetening the overall flavor of this beer. The pumpkin flavor, although very subtle too, stays with you in the aftertaste. And, at only 5.0% ABV, I was able to drink a couple of these in a sitting.

Overall, a nice sweet and flavorful beer. It might not have the straight forward pumpkin taste that our other reviewed beers have, but the sweet molasses flavoring gives it a nice change of pace. And because of that, Tommyknocker Small Patch Pumpkin Harvest Ale gets 3 out of 5 Drunken Jackos.
