The best pumpkin ale I’ve found so far this year. The appearance could be improved with some head and lacing – what’s the surfactant here, pumpkin or nutmeg? The spices are not overpowering but add a delicate sensory experience. The ale is sweet but not cloying. The 9% ABV is not evident in either drink or aftertaste; instead, a slow heat rises in the stomach several minutes after consuming. Just a darn good version of a pumpkin-based ale.

From other people's descriptions I thought I was going to be in for a Pumking imitator, but that is not what this is. It has none of the pumpkin pie, creamy taste of the king and this one shows it's booze out front in the taste (I think it is a bit higher alcohol too).

It is dark reddish brown and has big bubbles that recede, leaving a nice lace. The aroma is slightly boozy pumpkin.

The taste is worthy of some serious discussion. It has a lot of malt, but there are large amounts of spice, pumpkin, and hops too, to balance things. It would be a busy taste if it were so well balanced.

It definitely has a boozy aftertaste, but it is not unpleasant. I am glad that this is very different from pumking. It is one of the biggest and best pumpkin brews.
