It really is pumpkin pie! Didn’t get to try this last season ,but now Im making up for it, early . What a treat .No hint of booziness, which is always the key to good beer. Enjoy this while it lasts .

Good beer. Love the aroma, vanilla and nutmeg. Pours orange with big white head. Strong in flavor and ABV. Good seasonal beer.

Draft in St Pete Fl. Glorious beer. Best pumpkin by far. Can’t place aroma- unique as is the taste. Taste- vanilla, nutmeg and some oak. Simply blessed offering.. and I don’t care for fruity stuff typically.

Rated from notes taken 29 Dec 2011 -- Drank on tap at the Salty Duck, FWB, FL. This was my favorite pumpkin beer for about 2, 2 1/2 years. Very much love this beer. I really need to try this again to re-evaluate.

The light copper color appeared a bit more pale than the bottled version of regular Punking, but darker than the on-tap version of regular Pumking. The offering had little head. The nose was extraordinary - vanilla and spice dominate. The taste is a bit more balanced than the regular version. I love Pumking, but I understand that many feel the beer is cloying or syrupy. If you feel that way, you should try the oak-aged version. It does temper the sweetness of the regular version. Truth-be-told, the oak adds little of its own flavor, it but it does VERY well at balancing what is already present.

Pours orange, with a big white head that disappears. Sweet vanilla cookies on the nose, some rose blossom, hibiscus and some decent oak. Very little noticeable carbonation. There’s quite a bit going on taste-wise, though the pumpkin flavor is muted. Instead, there’s a good deal of oak up front,, plus coriander, cardamon, basil, more vanilla, some white pepper, and an aftertaste that reminds me of being sick and spoon-fed benadryl or old cough syrup.

About as spot on as you can make a pumpkin ale. pumpkin and caramel notes for days with a blend of other aromatic spices. Hard to believe it 8.6 percent.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear orange with minimal head. The aroma has a lot of spices, pumpkin, oak, graham cracker. The taste has the typical pumking flavor, with a nice oaky essence. Not much different but very good.

I really like this beer. Very strong and perfect for the fall season. When I poured it into my glass it had very little head which I thought was interesting. The type of beer you can only drink a couple.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Wow, so rich. Phenomenal, the best pumpkin beer out there. Sweet pastry-like pumpkin sugar tones. Lots of spice, but incorporated well. The oak adds even more vanilla, throwing it well over the top. Big and bold, but still maintains a great drinkability. Wow.
