  • Brew: Cosmic Autumn Rebellion Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Ale
  • Style: Pumpkin Beer
  • Serving: 12 ounce can
  • ABV: 6.0%
  • Pour: The Cosmic Autumn Rebellion pours a hazy bronze-amber hue with a frothy, 1-finger, off-white head with great retention and sticky, sudsy lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is vegetal, earthy, spicy, and sweet.  There are aromas of freshly cut pumpkin, dark chocolate, cocoa, nutmeg, cinammon, cloves, cookie dough, and soft caramel.
  • Taste: The taste follows the nose with lots of freshly baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookie flavor.  There are notes of pumpkin, spice cake, dark chocolate, cinammon, nutmeg, caramel, and a hint of spicy booze.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation, the Cosmic Autumn Rebellion's mouthfeel is with a spicy, somewhat dry finish.

Overall pairing: The Roosters Cosmic Autumn Rebellion is a very flavorful, drinkable, and complex brew of epic proportions... right in line with the epic power metal insanity of Gloryhammer's "Legends From Beyond The Galactic Terrorvortex"!   Those spicy and sweet flavors and aromas go great with the soaring guitar, keys, and vocals!!

Cheers and hails!!  Raise those pints!!
