Draft at HoTB. Aroma of bascically pumpkin pie. Taste is really spicy with maybe cinnimon nutmeg, and pepper. Pumpkin pie crust. Medium body. Creamy texture. Good. I like pumpking a little better.

Aroma of cracked pepper mixed with nutmeg butter and pumkin. Taste is decadent. Smooth and creamy sweet and pumpkin pie. Desert beer at its finest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daknole (10941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Dark brown color, light brown head. Very spice and chocolate forward. Some toasted pumpkin. But something just didnt sit right with me. It was flabby and seemed to get worse as it warmed.

This is fall in a bottle. A darker more sinister twist on Pumking. Very good, the palate is all over the board with dozens of subtle flavors creepy in as it warms. A very good fall beer.

On tap from The Beer Store Wilson. Black hue, zero visibility with mostly lasting frothy light khaki head. Virtually no lacing. Strong spice and pumpkin from a can aromas. Taste of canned pumpkin with whipped topping up front with the same finish plus more spice on the end. Oily on the palate.

codfishh (202) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
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 theres almost no roast flavor. Very smooth beer and not terrible for a pumpkin beer.

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 dont think Id purchase another bottle of this.

Lizardking3 (192) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Pours jet black with 2 finger tan head. Smells amazing, pumpkin pie without a doubt. Taste is incredibly pumpkin strong and smooth all the way.

hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2014
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.
