Poured into my (what else?) my Southern Tier Pumking Goblet from the 22 oz. bottle that I bought at -On in Mentor, Ohio about a week ago for a price that I am not sure of. Also I do not see a “best by” date on it but anything within 5 years should be good given the style. Of course I am drawn in by the association to one of my favorite seasonal beers, Southern Tier Pumking!
A Very dark mahogany color that appears black but in front of direct light the mahogany comes through. Head is a light to medium brown, sticks around for about 60 seconds, dissipates down to a thin layer. Good look. 4.0
S Ahh…that great ST Pumking smell. I only get a hint of the dark roast malt that I am sure is within. Anyway the smell is a nice, soft sweet pumpkin and smooooth as well. These are the qualities that drew me to ST Pumking and they are noted here in this beer. 4.5
T I am genuinely surprised that the taste of this beer is so closely related to Pumking as well as the smell. I do not pick of up the dark roast malt until late in the taste spectrum on the back of my tongue. While the beer is still in my mouth it is pretty much the same as the Pumking only a little “darker.” I expected possibly a thicker, more dark roast malt taste throughout. I find many of the Southern Tier Stouts to be thin and this does not alter my viewpoint. 3.5
M As suggested, more thin than I expected and more thin than I like in an “Imperial Stout” as it says on the label. This is the disappointing aspect of the beer. 2.5
D/O Drinkability is decent despite an elevated ABV since it still does carry that great Pumking smell and taste. Overall this is an above average Imperial Stout but, of course, I do which that it was not so thin in the feel. 4.0

Pours into a goblet a deep cola color with a half finger light beige head that left a broken ring of lace as it settled quickly.Wow the most aromatic pumpkin infused beer I have come across,roasted pumpkin,cardamom,and raw leafy hops stand out most,add vanilla and graham crackers and you have a big complex nose.Flavor of roasted pumpkin and vanilla/spices with some roast,like a pumpkin latte,the raw hops are still playing a big role.What a cool beer,it's a brash pumpkin stout with a real hop profile with alot of malty richness.Top notch.

In a goblet, this beer was a very dark brown, near black color. There was a minuscule to non-existant tan head.
Sweet chocolate aroma. Some pumpkin. Very subtle spice.
Taste followed form. Milk chocolate and pumpkin. A little allspice.
This was a smooth, not overly spiced beer. I thought the combination of stout and pumpkin went very well, with enough spice, but not too much spice.

This was a really interesting beer. An imperial stout brewed with pumpkin puree!!! They recommend you serve it in a goblet, and I was happy to oblige. The beer starts out tasting like a very nice imperial stout and then breaks off into a nice natural pumpkin flavor with a nice kick at the end!
Was happy I found this at my local store, worth the 10$- Looking forward to buying it next year or finding it on tap again!

4/5 rDev +0.5%
Appearance: high carbonation, 3/4 inch head, clear, dark brown in color
Smell: pumpkin spice and graham cracker
Taste: dark chocolate, charred/roasted malt, cream, sugar, and pumpkin spice
Mouthfeel: Sweet with bitter char in the background, medium-heavy body, medium-high carbonation
Overall: Really tasty compliment beer to Pumpking. I do think I like Pumpking better, but this one is a nice combo of char and great pumpkin flavor. Southern Tier does pumpkin well.
