COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumking is an ode to Pca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. Pca is said to waylay travelers throughout the night, tossing them on its back, and providing them the ride of their lives, from which they return forever changed. Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent. Pour Pumking into a goblet and allow its alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let its deep copper color entrance you as your journey into this mystical brew has just begun. As the first drops touch your tongue a magical spell will bewitch your taste buds making it difficult to escape the Pumking.

On tap at Rattle n Hum NY. Pours brown in colour with small tan head. Nose shows pumpkin, spice, and some sweet chocolate. Taste is roasty, sweet from the pumpkin with enough spice to balance it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - good size foamy head, medium orange color, definite pumpkin and spice aroma and flavor, sweet malt backbone, as my girlfriend put it "tastes like someone dropped a piece of pumpkin pie in my beer!" - good pumpkin beer, not too overpowering but enough pumpkin flavor to know its there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

njnut (351) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Poured into shaker glass an orange Amber with little head. Aroma was pure punpkin pie, pumpkin and spice. Taste was the same with a note of alcohol and a spice finish. Enjoyed but a little to much pie for me I like the balance of Warlock better.

mmargarucci (165) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Bomber from drinks of the world in Basel. Pours quite Amber and clear. But the aroma is very strong cinnamon, vanilla nutmeg and sweet malt. Palate is balance with just enough carbonation. I am mixed on the taste. First sip was awful. But it grows on you. By the end I thoroughly enjoyed it. High abv is well hidden.
