Pours a murky amber color with a one finger foamy white head. I can smell pumkin spices pretty easily with coffee in the background. Tastes much like it smells. Sweeter than I expected for a beer with cold brew coffee. I expected more bitterness, but it is not there. Medium bodied and creamy. Moderate carbonation. Has a sweet aftertaste. a nice beer. I wish there woud have been a stronger coffee presence, but still a nice beer.

With the pop top opened, a loud hiss fills the room that lingers for a second or two. This is the nitro filling the liquid in the can.

This brew pours a murky brown with a thin head. It should be noted that there is beauty to behold when poured into a glass, with the nitro foaming tiny rivulets of bubbles to the bottom. Aroma is pumpkin, coffee and cinnamon. Coffee hits first, followed by pumpkin but long after the can is opened, cinnamon becomes the dominant aroma profile.

Nitro improves the flavor here, giving a smooth, buttery flavor to the whole affair. Taste is prominently pumpkin with nutmeg and butter or toffee flowing through this profile. Carbonation is flat, or nearly so, and this brew would benefit from more, imho. Coffee becomes more pronounced as the brew warms. Overall, a fair pumpkin ale.

Another really good and interesting beer from my brother in Ohio. The addition of coffee in this beer makes it only better, but that's just my opinion.

13.6 FL OZ can
Served in an imperial nonic pint glass

This beer pours a brownish shade of orange and murky. It is topped with a couple inches of creamy, tan head that leaves spotty lacing.

Nice combo of pumpkin spices and coffee. I even get a little chocolate.

Delicious mixture of pumpkin spices upfront. Coffee follows in the rear. The combination of flavors is nice. I also get a little chocolate in the flavor.

Smooth bodied with a creamy mouthfeel

Pumking is one of my favorite pumpkin beers. The coffee in this version is a nice addition plus, the nitro makes is smooth as Barry White's vocals.

It's hard to describe the beauty of this beer. It is a foamy mix starting off, and looks quite creamy. Dark red is the main body after the nitro mixes in the beer. The remaining head lasts long, and it continues a bit throughout.
The aroma is mostly coffee, and there's a hint of the pumpkin spices.
The flavor is a mix of the coffee and pumpkin spices. These flavors are well balanced and work right together.
The body is soft and creamy - from the nitro. Very smooth.

16 fl oz can, best by 08/12/2023. Acquired the 4 pack from the local Binny's. Excited to try this.

A - Pours a beautiful toffee cream colored liquid from the can, three huge fingers of densely pack nitro foam head - starts out as a chocolate color but turns white and creamy. The head looks like actual beautiful cream. Thick luscious appearance.

S - Huuuge aromas of cold brew coffee bean, roastiness, and baked pumpkin pie crust & cinnamon. Everything is distinct and authentic smelling. The coffee seems like the most important and prominent element here, despite this being a variant of Pumking and all. I keep coming back to this aroma, it's truly perfect.

T - Flavors are the same: huuuge coffee bean bitterness / roastiness, slight char, notes of chocolate, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, crust, brown bread. Again, the coffee really does seem like the most important part of the beer here, super authentic and fresh tasting, like this was just brewed this morning. On par with something like Surly Coffee Bender, which is one of my fav coffee beers ever.

M - Feel is smooth, silky, creamy, goes down so easy. Moderately high abv is masked super well. Tons of cream & coffee latte flavors on the finish, bitter & roasty. I do prefer a slight prickle of carbonation, but this thing is sitting super well with me as it is.

Overall, a truly amazing beer. I was super impressed with this offering from Southern Tier & I'll be really honest - I probably like this a hell of a lot more than regular Pumking. Not compromised or cheaply made, and I think the nitro adds an extra element to this beer. I'd be interested to try a regular carbonated version however. Love this beer, highly recommended.

This was actually pretty damn good, it is exactly what it says and you'd expect if you've had Pumking and other nitro beers, now it just also as coffee. Good offering however idk if I'd chomp at the bit to spend money on it again

Nitro can poured into a goblet

A- pours a hazy deep amber color with a one-finger creamy off-white head that has great retention and leaves some lacing behind

S- lots of cereal grains on the nose, smells like Sugar Smacks cereal. Earthy coffee roast, along with cinnamon and vanilla notes. Undertones of the signature Pumpkin aromas; pumpkin pie filling, creamy vanilla, pie crust

T- light roasted coffee mixes with cereal grains up front, followed by notes of vanilla cream, pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon and graham cracker. The finish gives more light roast coffee, cinnamon and pumpkin pie

M- medium body with a creamy and silky mouthfeel that continues into a creamy finish, high drinkability

O- the coffee addition works well with an already solid pumpkin beer

Pours a dark orange. Creamy foam. Coffee aroma. Big coffee and pumpkin body. Bitter and sweet. Well balanced. Very smooth. The regular cold brew is good but it's better in nitro.

L - Murky copper with a light tan head that sticks around. It's got that characteristic perfect looking nitro brew look.
S - Tons of roasted, bitter coffee along with notes of pumpkin pie - nutmeg, cloves, allspice, cinnamon. Some vanilla as well. Great smelling beer.
T - roasted, bitter coffee up front and throughout along with notes of pumpkin pie - nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, along with some vanilla.
F - typical nitro feel - medium bodied with light carbonation. Very smooth, but somewhat thin.
O - I prefer this nitro version over the standard pumking as the coffee better fits with the nitro feel. Overall it's a fantastic beer, but I'd probably prefer the non nitro version.

Honestly, ever since I picked this one up, I thought it was just a nitro version of the OG Pumking, as the 2 were next to each other at the store and I must have grabbed the wrong one. I was in the mood for a pumpkin beer tonight, but it looks like I'll be getting a pumpkin/coffee hybrid. Fine by me

Pours a cloudy copper with just a finger of creamy white head that is pretty much never ending and leaves minimal lacing

The coffee and the pumpkin actually play together nicely in the nose. I'm picking up on aromas of pumpkin meat, pie crust, medium roast coffee, nutmeg, and caramel malt

This has a surprising depth a flavor for a nitro beer, especially on the back end. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting roasted pumpkin, nutmeg, cold brew coffee, vanilla, and light caramel malt. The swallow brings notes of roasted pumpkin meat, heavy nutmeg, medium roast coffee, cardamom, pie crust, light cocoa, and nutty malt

A medium body pairs with very gentle carbonation, resulting in a super rich and creamy beer. Despite this, it finishes rather dry and spiced

This one is pretty fun. Again, I was going in expecting OG Pumking on nitro, but I'm happy I accidentally grabbed this

13.8 oz nitro can poured into a pint glass

A- A clear amber with a big cascading nitro head.

S- Typical Pumking/pumpkin pie with some nice cold brew coffee in the background.

T- Pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cold brew coffee, nice balance.

M- Silky smooth, medium body.

O- I can see where mixed reviews are coming from with this, the taste isn’t as good as the nose but I still enjoy it.

Beautiful, crystal clear coppery brew. Because of the nitro treatment, cold brew coffee addition, and can art, you might be tempted into expecting a dark body a la Warlock, but this is much closer to OG Pumking, if a shade darker. Head production and retention are ... well, it's a nitro brew. You get the idea.

Pumpkin spice leads the way on the nose, along with a hint of actual pumpkin, although there is a warm coffee note, along with caramel malt lingering in the background. It smells quite nice, if not particularly complex.

Flavor is fairly in line with regular Pumking, which for me is disappointing, as I've always found the pumpkin spice to have an awkward artificiality to it - and that translates here, as well. The coffee is a nice addition, adding some depth and richness, but it's not strong enough to be a major player. This is still very much Pumking, much more so than a coffee beer, so how much you enjoy it is likely tied to how much you enjoy Pumking - and pumpkin ales in general.

Very smooth mouthfeel, of course, as a nitro brew. Long finish, which is surprising, given that it also has a very drily spicy aspect. Between the coffee and the pumpkin spices, the finish is bitter without balance. This affects the flavor, as it's much smoother and richer up front, but awkward, if not unpleasant, on the finish and aftertaste.

Pumpkin ales are necessarily divisive; pumpkin spice ales even more so. You kind of know what you're getting into, but at the same time, there are some pleasantly complex and impressive examples within the style (e.g. Southern Tier Warlock, Two Roads Roadsmary's Baby). This is not one of those beers, but it's fine; it tastes good, it's a pumpkin ale, and it fits the season quite well. I'm unlikely to intentionally revisit it, however, even in subsequent seasons, when there are quite simply better examples around.

A: The beer is clear yellowish orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high creamy and dense off white head that has very good retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Moderate aromas of pumpkin spices are present in the nose along with hints of coffee.
T: The taste has moderately strong flavors of pumpkin and pumpkin spices along with notes of cold brew coffee.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and very smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I enjoyed this variation of pumpking as the cold brew coffee doesn't overpower the pumpkin flavors.
