Barking Pumpkin enjoyed on tap from Winking Lizard October 23, 2015.

Look - Dark hazy pumpkin for lack of better description. Off white head goes to nothing. Lacing only where head was.

Smell - Sweet pumpkin. Ginger. Cinnamon.

Taste - Pumpkin and ginger.

Feel - Subdued spice makes it more drinkable than other pumpkin beers. Sits better in stomach.

Overall - The best non dark pumpkin beer I've had. Drinkable and smooth. Still pumpkin.

On tap at JO's beer release 08/27/2011

Nice combo of fall spices.

Smooth for the ABV and has a better smell and mouth-feel than most beers of this style.

Medium body.

Slightly cloudy, similar to a Belgian wheat, but the color of burnt amber.

Good campfire beer.

375ml bottle poured into Jackie O's snifter

A- pours a deep ruby amber color with a small fizzy white head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing behind

S- the aroma is more malty than spicy, picking up some caramel notes, almost like caramelized pumpkin. Faint aromas of nutmeg and clove

T- sweet and malty base with caramel sweetness, also picking up a slight vegetal flavor. The spicing is hard to pick up, maybe a hint of cinnamon & nutmeg. Lots of booze on the finish that lingers for a while

M- heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns slightly creamy before a warming boozy finish

O- this one has potential but it's pretty hot out of the gate. The spices are very subtle, leaving it to drink like a high ABV amber ale
