Punkin' Ale is a full-bodied, spiced brown ale brewed with baked pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale is named after the annual Punkin' Chunkin Festival held near Lewes, Delaware the weekend after Halloween.

12oz bottle from the 2014 run (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 42°. Color is a hazy orange brown with good carbonation and a thin white head. Aroma is a slightly sour pumpkin spice scent. It has a medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is big spice a hint of vanilla and alcohol. After taste is bitter with the spice lingering on. Overall it’s not much different then most pumpkins out there and I was really expecting more from Dogfish, so in the end I’m a little disappointed. grundsow (130) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2016
A Nutmeg-Clove-Fest with Malt making a strong showing at the party. Pumpkin invited, but maybe has just a toe in the door at this point? Not for me. ehaak26 (490) - - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle from Liquor Barn. Aroma is pumpkin with some malt. Taste was sweet. I’d like to re-try it on draft. PhillyCraft (7082) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Vtg blackberry backlog, Pours hazy orange color with medium sized head. Notes of nutmeg, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, yam, and hops. The body is on the lighter side. A solid pumpkin beer.

Cinnamon aroma with a pumpkin body and some brown sugar sweetness. Nutmeg aftertaste. seehaferb23 (260) - - OCT 11, 2016
This beer was very disappointing for Dogfish Head. The pumpkin was very faint. It almost appeared to be paired with a lager.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours orange and amber with a small, white head. The aroma is subtle for a pumpkin beer with hints of pumpkin and spice. The taste is subtle on pumpkin at first. As it warms, the pumpkin is more pronounced. You get the cinnamon and nutmeg too. It tastes more like a brown at times. It goes down pretty easy for the alcohol content.
