Poured from a 650ml bomber pitch black opaque, thin tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma has some light vanilla with cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Taste has lots of vanilla up front and fades into some light pumpkin spice there’s almost no roast flavor. Very smooth beer and not terrible for a pumpkin beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle from the Craft Ale House in Limerick. I tasted a lot more of the Pumking side of things than an imperial stout. There was a truck-ton of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon in the nose and flavors. I got a subtle hint of roasted malt, bread and bitter and dry hops. I don’t think I’d purchase another bottle of this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown, finger creamy tan head dissipates quickly, slight lacing. Aroma cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pure pumpkin, bready, roast malt. Taste spice dominates, slight roast bitterness to balance, pumpkin in background. Mouthfeel medium-full body, medium-high carbonation, balanced finish, a bit on the sweet side, slight roast astringency, very slight alcohol warming. Overall roasty version of Pumking, which cuts through the sweetness well, one of the best pumkins available.

Bomber from Savor Growl. Deep brown-black pour and thin tan head. Aroma is big spice, caramel, nutmeg. Tastes are pumpkin, chocolate, nutmeg, caramel, cinnamon, crakers. Soapy. I’m not sure why I keep trying pumpkins - not my style. This one is particularly not to my tastes.

Forgot this was pumpkin spice. Tastes like ginger bread cookies. Seriously. That’s all you need to know.
