The Full Review

Sometimes a person just wants a trip to Flavortown, and drinking a Punkuccino is like walking into a Starbucks that makes no-fault, full-flavor PSLs. It’s what a pumpkin spice latte should taste like, if pumpkin spice lattes were supposed to taste like beer. The creaminess of coffee — top-notch coffee from Stumptown, nonetheless — with a hint of pumpkin spice. The weight of the beer makes this something to drink from morning till night. It’s a “while Rome burns” beer that you can drink in a nothing-matters-anyway mood as the world around you descends into chaos. No worries, no prior biases, all pleasure.
