Dogfish Punkin Ale is the perfect beer for the changing season. It is only available from September first until around Thanksgiving. This award winning full-bodied brew is made from only the finest ingredients, which include pumpkin meat and brown sugar, make the perfect recipe for a cold fall night - not for the light drinker. A bit more pricey than most, but well worth it. If you haven’t had it before nows your chance.

Been stashing this for a couple months, and have now found myself with plenty to share!
A - it's kind of deep golden, or really light brown; certainly not typical brown ale-looking; very small head; unretained lacing
S - brown sugar; nutmeg; pumpkin bread; sweet malt
T - caramel; pumpkin; cinnamon; candy corn; nutmeg; more brown sugar; some bitter hops
M - it's a little sweet up front; cloying pumpkin through and through; a little boozy but well-concealed bc of all the other flavors; pretty smooth but a little bitter on the back end; bitterness stays on the back of the tongue; pleasant carbonation
O - this has for years been my go-to fall beer; I'm not a big fan of Oktoberfests and this beer always makes me welcome fall; it's up there w some of the best pumpkin beers, although I've had better for sure; in terms of balance, flavor, and accessibility...this beer stands strong.

I know I have had this bottled before (I need to review that) but today I had a very nice glass on draft at the Winking Lizard on Coventry.
It has a very nice moderate aroma. The taste matches this closely but with a nice ale balance. Like the best of this style, I could have had another. The aftertaste is very nice as well.
As I remembered it, this is much better on tap than the bottle was.
