Bitter, heavy pumpkin taste and aftertaste -- with alcohol too prominent.

Pours a hazy light orange with a thin light head.
Smells a warm pumpkin cinnamon with malty undertones.
Tastes of hop vanilla, cinnamon and spice with a pumpkin taste dominating. Hop continues to resinate afterward. I do taste some orange rind.
Feel- Lots of things going on but quite drinkable.
Overall- this was poured from a bomber and was quite good, but when I had as a draft in the fall, it was great. Probably my favorite pumpkin beer.

Maybe a slightly biased review. But I do love this beer, my favorite out of everything I have had, actually. One of the few beers I get really excited to come out and that I will actively seek out. I tend to only try new things and Pumpking is definitely a huge exception.

Another rare pumpkin ale that feels nice all the way through. Quite heavy handed as well.

This years Southern Tier Pumking was a huge disappointment. Over Spiced, Over Rated and tasted like line cleaner. The Warlock on the other hand was a 5 of 5.

Pumpkin Pie in a bottle... absolutely delicious... not a session beer(far too sweet), but the bomber is the perfect amount. Satisfying desert after a hard day's work or a big meal...your choice
