A pumpkin ale with the attitude of a world-weary barista, Punkuccino packs a short shot of Stumptown coffee toddy in your pint with a shake of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Pours a medium light brown with a thick luxuriant beige head from growler at Tap That. Nose is cimmamon, pumpkin spice, and coffee. Flavor sweet cinnamon and nutmeg, dark chocolate, and some coffee. Long lingering fresh coffee and bittersweet coffee. Very cozy tasting brew.

Bomber pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is balanced, coffee, pumpkin or yam, pie spices, cinnamon and whatnot. Starts with espresso then has a mildly sweet pumpkin pie finish. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation. Very good pumpkin beer.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, mocha, nutmeg, chocolate malt. Flavor of lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spices, light coffee, roasted malt. Lots of cinnamon in this one. Coffee is there but not super dominant. Tasty! 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

Pours a medium brown. Looks pretty clear but dark enough that you can’t see through the glass. Head is relatively thin but it continues to build from the bottom. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice and pumpkin, as one might expect. The aroma doesn’t have much coffee to it, but maybe there is some chocolate. It smells fricken delicious. The coffee comes through a lot more in the flavor. This beer does taste like a pumpkin latte. I usually wouldn’t like a beer this sweet and with this much non-traditional beer flavor, but this actually works pretty well. For the amount of flavor, it is still pretty drinkable and clean in the mouth. Good effort on this one. If you like this type of non-traditional beer this is one to try for sure.

22 ounce bottle. Translucent cola brown color topped by a small firm beige head. Big spicy malt nose, redolent of cinnamon and coffee. First sip brings more cinnamon and creamy cappuccino flavor. A smooth creamy mouthfeel as well. Coffee flavor dominates the palate, but the pumpkin pie spices are there. Mostly cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg and allspice. Rich, malty notes in finish. A decent effort. One of the better pumpkin beers tasted.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2016 Sampled on draft at Smokin Joe?s this beer poured a dark brown color with a small foamy beige head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel and pumpkin spice. The flavor was sweet cinnamon sugar, nutmeg, vanilla cream and roasted caramel. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done

Draft at Elysian Capitol Hill. Pours clear nut brown with a fizzy beige head. Smells like cinnamon, pumpkin, vanilla, booze, and roasted coffee. Tastes like cinnamon, pumpkin, roasted coffee beans, and vanilla. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with a whit head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, and faint coffee. Taste is a very well balanced moderately sweet spiced pumpkin beer. More coffee and smoked malt on flavor than aroma with a cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin flavor that is not a spice bomb like some. Excellent pumpkin beer. One of the best I've had. Would love to try this against Warlock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
