3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
My bottle reads 16.73 ABV. Itís an Avery brew so I expected big and boozy and thatís what it is. Thankfully though you can still taste the pumpkin and spices and itís not alcohol hot just boozy. Still though itís just to damn big and insanely sweet. Glad I tried it though. I certainly wonít buy a bottle ever again though as I canít bring myself to pay $13 for a 12oz thatís unnecessarily big and sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted and caramel for the malt, light cooked orange for the hops, moderate dough and broth for the yeast, with notes of butterscotch, nutmeg and rum. Head is small, wispy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear copper. Flavor starts heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately to heavily sweet and faintly bitter. Palate is full, syrupy, with a mostly flat carbonation and a heavily alcoholic finish. This Pumpkin Beer should be slightly warmed and sipped slowly as you would a bourbon in winter.

Keg at Beer Run, 11/4/14. Batch 4. Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramelized pumpkin, brown sugar, spice, lemon, rum. The taste is rum, toffee, caramel, raisin, pumpkin, rye, dark fruits. Medium bodied, low carbonation. A little hot but not bad to the alchohol content.

AndyReynolds said: Pretty damn good pumpkin beer. The alcohol stands out for sure. Typical pumpkin pie aroma with stronger pumpkin vs. spice, subtle rum.

Bottle, 11/22/2014. Pours a clear ruby mahogany color, thin yellow beige head fades quickly to a still surface. Aroma is pumpkin, pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of rum barrel with vanilla, booze. Taste is similar, pumpkin pie filling, heavily spiced, with rum, big boozy finish. Thick body. Alright, but verging on one-note only.

Perfect balance of pumpkin essence, pumpkin spices, and rum.
Syrupy (but not too syrupy) body, and a very sweet, but not quite cloying flavor, thanks to a dash of dryness from the ginger.
The alcohol is beautifully masked for 16+ percent, and the finish is nearly endless.
Pumking WAS my favorite pumpkin ale until I savored Rumpkin.
