I am a huge fan of Pumking and thus when I first heard about this beer I was anxious to taste it. Southern Tier Pumking meets chocolate stout... A deliciously smooth combination of aroma, flavor and appearance. Instantly one of my favorites. I highly recommend this beer to enthusiast and beer lovers all over.

The aroma is one of the most amazing to date with tons of pumpkin and spices along with caramel and hops. The appearance is dark brown. The taste would be just as amazing if not for a chemical bitterness. The palate is thin but not watery. Overall has the makings of a killer beer but ruined by bitterness.

The pros outweigh the cons but the flaws are very significant. The aroma remind of pumpkin, nutmeg, oatmeal, and cedar. The palate is smooth with a strong bite in the front. The end is where is its flaw with a heavy, tannis astringent bite. Still this is fantastic

I can’t remember whether I sampled a draft or a bottle. In any case, deep garnet-red body, thick puffy beige head. Herbal nose with lots of pumpkin flesh. Pulpy body, herbal, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and toast in addition to chocolate. Good.

Graham cracker and pumpkin on the nose. Nice deep brown color, with a cream colored head. Taste is like drinking pumpkin pie. So much more complex than pumking

It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of sweet pumpkins, some roastiness and vanilla notes. The taste was similar to the aroma with added roasty chocolate flavors. It had a dry finish and was full bodied. Very tasty.

22oz bottle into a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, pumpkin, hints of coffee, and some light spices. Flavor a nice blend of an imperial stout and pumpkins. Smooth to thicker texture. An interesting pumpkin imperial stout.
