Dogfish Head Punkin Ale (review)

Beer Review #151

150 different brews down the hatch. Where does the time go? This afternoon, for review #151, I'm checking out my third pumpkin beer of the season (Warlock, Pumking) in the form of Dogfish Head's Punkin Ale. I haven't reviewed a Dogfish Head brew since Sixty-One (review #113), which i found to be a rare underwhelming beer in Dogfish Head's otherwise consistently impressive lineup.

Weighing it a 7%ABV, Punkin Ale compares well with Southern Tier Brewing Company's Pumking Imperial pumpkin ale, as both put the list of ingredients in your typical pumpkin pie on display - pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg, the breadiness of a flaky crust. But where the two beers differ is in that Punkin Ale is slightly darker and less creamy, which allows the spices to cut through the noise more sharply at the back of the mouth.

How does the beer look? Check out my video below....
