Dogfish Head’s Punkin


It’s Autumn here in Charleston which means the weather is bearable the nights are cooler and well the autumn beers are hitting the shelves.  The first one I tried is Dogfish Head’s Punkin ale.  With an ABV of 7 % it’s stronger than the normal session beer but not so strong that you couldn’t sit down at a bar and enjoy one of these.  The pour is orange with a small head.  The nose comes across with roasted pumpkin, toffee, nutmeg, cinnamon, and I got some chestnut out of it.  The taste is much like the nose just a little more muted which I think is a nice thing.  A beer that is really nice and smooth and very approachable.  A must try for anyone who likes Seasonal beer or just beer for that matter.
