Poured froma 22oz bomber in to a snifter.

A- Pretty much black... typical stout look. Not much head.

S- Woah, spices on spices. The pumpkin is hard to decipher from the spices, but its in there.

T- The pumpkin shows up a bit more, but still there are a ton of spices. The stout flavors are surprisingly subdued, but this is still delicious.

M- Medium feel.. less than I expected.

O- Pretty damn delicious! Thanks to scm2787!

Halloween has never tasted better! Pumpkinator has the perfect toasted blend of pumpkin spices mixed with an stouty finish. Nice lightly golden head with a shadow dark body. Much like the moons light reflecting off the dark side of the earth. This is a treat with no tricks

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is roasted chocolate malts with some perfumey pumpkin spice and some vegetal pumpkin.

The flavor is sweet roasted chocolate malts with a lot of pumpkin spicing (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) and some dark fruit, molasses and alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice imperial pumpkin porter/stout.

Strong, sweet pumpkin pie aroma. Pitch black body. Spicy pumpkin flavor with mild bitterness and light roast. Awesome stout.

2X 22oz bombers as a surprise from lnashsig, thanks lee!

A: pours gorgeous and billowy pitch black, nice mocha head.

S: whoaaa. unreal on the smell. pumpkin pie, nutmeg chocolate, cinnamon, smells like thanksgiving dessert in a bottle. If I could rate above a 5.0 on smell, this would be the one.

T: pumpkin ciderish taste up front (combo of all the spices), then pumpkin pie with milk chocolate, then crust (malt) and cinnamon finish. Definitely overflowing with flavor.

M: complex to say the least. great meld over flavors and super smooth.

D: I love this one but its a sipper, so I'd say low overall but thats not a knock.

O: Pumking was my previous favorite pumpkin beer,but this one is king now. Definitely best pumpkin beer I've had. Kudos to the Htown.

Very glad to see this one getting some great reviews, I recently had TREAT 2011 and I thought this was a better "pumpkin" beer.
