I've made pumpkin ale with a Midwest kit, turned out excellently. I add 40oz (+) of pumpkin puree and a ton of extra spices.

I took a basic porter extract kit and added a chunk of baker's chocolate and 1.25 oz of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie spice to the boil with 10 minutes left. I call it Chocolatey Pumpkin Sex

Week in the keg and gave it a shot. 8% abv. Slight pumpkin, taste slight maple syrup, gram cracker. Added a little more pumpkin spice to keg. Pretty smooth for high abv. Will deff add more to boil next time. Didn't want to add too much. Only added 2 tbsp to boil at flame out. Added 60 oz of pumpkin as well. Very tasty tho. Thanks for the help and feed back. Here's a pic

My pumpkin ale is gone. Came out fantastic. Gave some to a few pumpkin ale lovers, and every one of them said they preferred it over the ones they've bought. My aunt even did a blind test w 3 of her friends; mine and pumking, they all picked mine. Pretty proud !
