I went to my local specialty beer store one week in October and they had a huge display of the pumking, probably 30 or 40 cases. I'm usually not too big on pumpkin beers, but I grabbed a couple bombers and found out why the call it the pum KING! This beer is like pumpkin pie in a bottle! I went back in a week later and they only had 3 bottles left, so I cleared them out...
I had the last one chillin' in the back of the fridge until tonight.
I cracked it open and you can smell this one from across the room. It has the pumpkin, the graham cracker, some nutmeg, and then a nice smooth vanilla finish. Some pumpkin beers have too much pumpkin or too much weird spice flavor, but this beer has a nice balance and masks the 8% ABV very well.
I will be on the lookout for this one next year!
