Picked this up in a recent trade. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a one finger beige head with minimal retention and decent lacing. The nose is rich and complex with hints of cinnamon, clove, licorice, pumpkin, and subtle molasses with rum emerging as it warms. The taste follows suit with the rum being even more prevalent, along with hints of cinnamon, molasses, tobacco, licorice, raisins, pumpkin pie, and just a touch of dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with perfect carbonation, great balance, and a subtle warming on the finish. Overall, this is a rich and flavorful beer that lived up to all the hype. I love Pumpkinator, and this takes it over the top!

Also called Rumkinator.

Poured into an 8oz pint glass directly from the brewery tap.

Pours a black color with a light mocha colored head.

Smell is heavy of cinnamon and molasses. Some mulling spices, with a hint of sweet vanilla.

Sweet molasses and slight pumpkin flavor. Some light mulling spices. Slight vanilla flavor that doesn't linger on the finish. Clean finish for a BA beer. Not much burn from booze. Some boozy taste, but not as heavy as a bourbon barrel beer. Not overpowering. Almost a little sour even...

Mouthfeel is light for a BA beer.
