A little disappointing considering how much I liked their regular Pumking beer. This one was just not quite balanced right. Looks great, light amber-orange color with abundant fluffy white head and very spotty lingering lacing. Smells faintly of coffee, pumpkin and spice. Taste follows the nose, except with a slightly acidic, sour coffee taste and sweetness that was almost cloying. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel and good carbonation but there's that sour aftertaste again that ruins the enjoyment of the mouthfeel. Just overall a letdown.

Pours, dare I say, pumpkin orange, with tiny white bubbles on the rim of the surface area. Woah, hello coffee! Straight up coffee, with some cinnamon and clove with biscuit malt. Intense, more a coffee beer than pumpkin. Smell is more balanced with traditional pumpkin pie flavors putting up a balanced fight against the coffee. Interesting take, would not rush to have again

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Montauk pumpkin glass.

Look is a clear golden yellow with an offwhite head.

Aroma s spicing and fresh coffee.

Taste is an intense balance between spicing and coffee.

Interesting take on a pumpkin. Maybe a little too much with the additive flavors. The beer kinda gets lost.

12oz bottle. Poured out an opaque, dark, dark brown color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled of light roasted coffee, pumpkin and pie spices. Sweet caramel and pumpkin with some bitter roasty coffee.

This brew is amazing....it is clear, Amber orange in color and has a marvelous aroma. The smells are of pumpkin spice, coffee, and a creamy malt scent. I think I get honey and some caramel iced notes as well. The taste is sweet, but not cloying...full and luxurious. This is a pumpkin beer done right.

I wish I had some regular Pumking to compare this beer too, for a fairer judgment. Pumking is one of the better pumpkin beers out there. Although, it's been a bit since I've had one, as I try new pumpkin beers every year vs. the ones I've already head. You do taste pumpkin, lovely spices, and a hint of coffee. It's works quite nicely together.

It definitely smells and tastes like pumpkin and coffee. My biggest complaint with this beer is the mouthfeel. It’s very light/watery with a light amber orange color. However, it does say cold press coffee. I’m just not a fan of this beer but it taste just like it seems like it would. To me a more rich coffee flavor like a stout with some pumpkin afternotes would be ideal.

2018 beer is very coffee like. Taste zero pumpkin. Previous years were better.

12 oz bottle, vintage 2018, a clear orange with a thin layer of lace. Aroma is, strangely enough to, pumpkin and light coffee. The taste starts with pumpkin and spices, then slight coffee, then pumpkin on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation low. Overall a nice beverage if you like pumpkin beers, mixing with coffee is a plus.

Julian dating 18235. 12 oz bottle.
Orange-Copper hue. Two finger cream head, curtain lacing which subsides rapidly.
A lot of aroma to unpack, vanilla, pumpkin flesh, allspice, cinnamon, pancakes.
Taste is much simpler, pumpkin pie, allspice, with a coffee aftertaste.
Light bodied, easy drinking. A fun pumpkin beer.

L: Poured from a growler to a pint glass. Had a coppery color and a clear consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A solid aroma of coffee, chocolate, pumpkin, spices, malt, and a nutty quality.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of malt (present throughout), a bit of pumpkin, lots of coffee (the dominant feature), some of the nutty quality (hazelnuts, maybe), a bit of chocolate, and spices (nutmeg, especially). An interesting take on the Pumking. The coffee adds a unique dimension to the flavor. It's a bit more subtle than the original, but still tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a sharp finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: A well made, likable beer. Drinkable.
