This one smelled like baked pumpkin pie crust, way to spicy and sweet for me but i can see how some like it SteveLikesBeer (72) - - OCT 29, 2013
It has a rich copper colour and a creamy smoothness that makes it easy going down, which too often isn’t the case with high alcohol beers -- and this one is 8.6 per cent. It poured with little head. While it contains spices, they’re not as bold in the aroma or flavour as in some pumpkin beers. But they creep in on the finish after a vanilla and graham cracker crust introduction. I’d read very positive things about Pumking and, while I won’t rave about it, I’m certainly not disappointed. trapped (3401) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 8, 2013
Drought. Light amber color with small white foamy head, strong pumpkin aroma, fizzy with dominant pumpkin taste, long finish. A nice smooth seasonal. Linnet (1873) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2014
Ar: vanilla, cinnamon, pumkin, very spicy, lots of sweet sugar, alcohol, caramel, solvents.
Ap: amber colour, medium off-white head.
T: low bite, big sweetness, spices, pumkin, alcohol.
P: funny that a beer with as high an ABV feels thin, soft carbonation, sweet and warming finish.

22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy yellow orange with a medium creamy white head that retains fairly well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet pumpkin and lots of spice - nutmeg, cinnamon and hazelnut.
The flavor is sweet pumpkin with a lot of spicy cinnamon and some nutmeg and hazelnut. The finish is kind of harsh medicinal cinnamon The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, similar spicing to the Warlock. Seems more overdone with the roast to balance.
On tap, pours a cloudy golden orange with a big head and lots of lacing. Nose is a mix of pumpkin, allspice, cloves baker’s yeast, hops. Taste is a combo of pumpkin pie and pumpkin cider with a hoppy bitter background. pretty good fruit beer. atlrizzob (225) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2014
I’m really picky about pumpkin brews but I liked this one. A subtle mixture of the pumpkin and spices make a very unique, warm flavor. c_lee_burton (193) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2014
22 oz bottle. Smells like fresh pumpkin pie. Pours a light gold with a quickly dissipating head. Tastes of buttery crust, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, pumpkin, and a bitter hop finish. Decent, but not as smooth as the spices and hops could be. ajnepple (6843) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
22 oz bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Golden orange and clear appearance with a dissipating beige head. Aroma of alcohol, pumpkin spices, pie crust, nutmeg, cinnamon, paint thinner and chemicals. Similar flavor, a little messy with a hot finish. Something seems off here. Disappointed. FestDecBeet (412) - - OCT 20, 2014
Look: pours a clear yellow color. Bright white head.
Smell: pumpkin pie spices. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Some bananas.
Taste: pumpkin bread.
Feel: rather thick mouth feel. Medium carbonation.
Overall: appreciate what they are doing with this beer, but not for me. Like the mild pumpkin flavor with the beer.
