4.6/5 rDev +13.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
DATE TASTED: November 2, 2013... GLASSWARE: Chimay goblet... OCCASION: post-Halloween weekend relaxation... APPEARANCE: beautifully clear, orange body that frames a bubbling cauldron of steady effervescence; a thin ring of white head produces a dearth of lacing--appropriately dramatic and dark... AROMA: sugary pumpkin, almond nut/butter scents weave with vanilla/cinnamon/nutmeg--complex and rewarding...PALATE: at 8.6% ABV, impressively smooth and medium-bodied; goblet-worthy smoothness with a delayed warming texture ...TASTE: brilliantly caramelized malts that provide a formidable base for the pumpkin puree; bewitching, even/especially for those of us not entirely agog over pumpkin flavored anythings...OVERALL: a victory in the genre...hate to make generalizations, but Southern Tier is bold, flavorful and easily drinkable in seemingly all of their beer profile--a possible Top Five US Brewery, if I were to draft a list...

In my opinion, Pumking is hands down, the best beer in the world. If it has ever been taken into outer space, it's probably the best beer there too. And it's not just it's "pie-in-a-glass" taste.
As your glass comes toward you, you first experience the beautiful color, then the wonderful aroma and then the perfect taste. Mouth feel is good too. If you like to just enjoy 1 or 2 beers, Pumking has substantial ABV that lessens the need for multiples.
It must be tough to brew a good pumpkin ale because I have tasted so many bad ones. There are none better than Southern Tier Pumking.
