2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Deep brown, edging on black with a khaki foam that settles quickly to a collar. Aroma is very nice; warm nutmeg, cinnamon spice, crispy graham cracker, light ginger, & a hint of roast & cocoa underneath. Taste is similar with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, graham cracker, & finishing cocoa. There’s an inherent bitterness I could do without, almost like a heavy dirt or ash with high astringency. The aroma is kick ass, though. It smells like I want it to taste, but it doesn’t taste "stout-y" enough for me. Still resembles regular Pumking too much on the palate, with only slight "stout" notes & an unwarranted harshness about it.
Fresh pumpkin pie flavor. Smooth! Plus a rich malty backbone. A nice Fall treat while watching the foliage turn.

March 21, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, mabel and jercraigs - bomber. Deep and dark (clear) ruby with a small tan head. Smells like Pumking, but roastier - pumpkin spice, solid slightly vegetal malt - works for me! Taste is a palate-smash of pumpkin pie spice - too much and it detracts from some nice roast and charred graham wafers - hides the ABV though. Average body, astringent, finish is mostly just spice, really lingers. Still not bad. Lowe1983 (1594) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, and pumpkin. Flavor is very strong of the pumpkin and spices. Finishes with the chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. chinchill (4993) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2017
22 oz bottle. 8.6% ABV.
Pours very dark, nearly opaque in the glass. Color: red-brown. Head: thin, tan semi-durable.
Aroma: spicy but more like spiced bread than pumpkin pie.
Flavor: well set level and mix of spicing allows the dark grains to shine. Lightly sweet with hints of roasted cashews, cinnamon, nutmeg and baked pumpkin. Balanced and harmonious.
Feel: smooth, full body with medium-light carbonation. Ronritter (728) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2017

One of the best pumpkin beers out there! Sweet, malty, creamy. Crazy resemblance to a root beer (not literally).

Bottle shared @ Radio Maria. Very dark brown with a rapidly receding tan head. Tons of chocolate liqueur, very sweet with an extract quality that does not appeal to me. I just read the label and there is supposedly pumpkin in here too? Huh. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2017

Bottle. Dark black color. Dark fruit aroma, raisins. plums. Autumn spices. Chocolate and roasted malt. Slight woody notes. Flavor is well balanced between the rich, chewy maltyness and the spice. Slight alcohol warmth on the finish. Lots of chocolate. Very nice. Prue (33) - Havre de Grace, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2017
