Coffee Pumpkin Ale

A pumpkin ale with the attitude of a world-weary barista, Punkuccino packs a short shot of Stumptown coffee toddy in your pint with just a shake of cinnamon and nutmeg. Pale, Bown, Biscuit, C-77 Crystal, Chocolate and Kiln-Coffee malts provide the body, German Northern Brewer lends a touch of bitterness, and lactose sweetens just a touch. Three pumpkin additions, in the mash, kettle and fermenter.

12 oz bottle from the Elysian pumpkin mixed 12-pack. Poured into a snifter. Copper color with a creamy head - almost nitro-like (or cappuccino-like?). Aroma and flavor feature pumpkin spice, sweet cream, caramel malt, toffee, and bitter (almost burnt) coffee. Mouthfeel is excellent, very smooth, full, and creamy. Solid overall and if not for the burnt character this would be even better.

From a 12oz bottle marked “EXP BY 06 JAN24” poured into a tulip. Only the appearance is unremarkable here. Dark mahogany but little head and what there is disappears quickly. No lacing. Smell and flavor as advertised, but thankfully the cinnamon is subtle. Abundant pumpkin plus coffee and some vanilla. The lactose additions adds heft to the body. Overall a nice twist on a pumpkin ale but not as good as their Great Pumpkin Imperial Ale

Aroma of harsh espresso and juicy pumpkin bar. Body's much the same. An immediate onset of mocha and espresso followed by thick, sumptuous pumpkin bar pastry with some chocolate on the side. Not bad. Not very complex but smooth and straightforward.

I know this is Elysian and it's a popular brewery that was purchased by Miller so I heard the name of the beer and the description and honestly thought this beer was a joke. Pumpkin coffee stout? Come on! This beer is going to be rank. No one can pull this off. Oh contraire.

Smell is pumpkin but you get undertones of coffee. Like a perfect balance. How is that? Taste is is equally balanced. Nice pumpkin flavoring without being overpowering or tasting fake. A beer like this has to be so hard to nail down and they did it. Standing ovation.

Super dark brown, but not quite black, thick tan head, excellent retention, spotty lace
Smells like coffee with heavy pumpkin spice
Tastes like an old pumpkin spice latte that was a little shy on the milk
Rich, medium heavy body, appropriately lower carbonation
Not my thing

Black coffee color with a decent tan head and bits of nice lacing.
The aroma is coffee and pumpkin pie, not bad.
The taste follows with pumpkin pie leading followed by coffee with a touch of cream, very nice. The body is light/ medium, light carbonation, smooth and very drinkable.
Altogether, this makes for one of the best pumpkin brews I have tried, excellent.
