22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/8/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, honey, gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, toast, and herbal/spice earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, honey, gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, toast, and herbal/spice earthiness. Some light earthy herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, honey, gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, toast, and herbal/spice earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial pumpkin ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma of pumpkin
Head average (3.5 cm, aggressive pour), off white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm ring and layer
Lacing poor – rare island of tiny bubbles
Body medium orange, clear
Flavor begins with brown sugar and nutmeg which stays slightly sweet throughout. The spice is not overpowering and it actually pretty well balanced. Fortunately, can’t taste any honey. No hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, somewhat syrupy, lively carbonation

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 4, Flavor 4, Palate 4, Overall 4

On draught at The Beer Mongers, Punk'in Dublin is one of the better pumpkin brews to my palate. The gourd is noticeable and not mask by the malt, which is strong amber base, and clean. The spices are subtle and we'll intergrated. Overall it's very clean, yet still very seasonally appropriate.
There is some sweetness and intensity of the adjuncts, but most of it is in the nose, which is like a fall potpourri. No palate fatigue over the course of the 12 oz. glass. Digestible. Well done!
