look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours a clear dark golden color with a small white head that persists in a white ring around the surface of the liquid. Lacing is above average.

Aroma is very different from every Pumpkin beer out there: a very strong smell with lots of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove with a great caramel malt backbone.

Taste is mind-blowing as well! Starts sweet with malts, caramel, Pumpkin and lots of spices again with cinnamon and nutmeg dominating. Finishes with a lasting spicy taste that lingers forever.

Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is very rich and drinkability is high considering the abv, which is totally hidden.

Overall this is hands down the best Pumpkin ale out there. I just wanna put it on plate and eat it. Such a great balance of malts and spices...Pumking is indeed the king.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Pours a clearish amber color with a nice 1 1/2 finger creamy head

S- Smells like a pumkin crumble cake. Has nice aromas of spices and sweetness

T- Has a nice pumpkin flavor up front followed by some nutmeg and carmel, finishes with a pumpkin peppery brown sugar flavor.

M- Medium to light bodied with ok carbonation

D-Overall this was a nice pumpkin beer. Had awesome aroma but i couldn't have more than 1 glass of this in a day. It has too much flavor and a little overly sweet. Overall it was still a nice brew
