This is one of the few rare beers in Texas always worth the hunt. My favorite thing about Pumpkinator is the smell, I don't think I've even smelled a beer with a more tantalizing aroma. It's smells like a pumpkin pie candle with other spices present. The taste is Pumpkin, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, with a hoppy backbone that you can subdue with some aging (which I recommend). The beer is a little boozy but not overpowering.

Pours dark black color with small head and mild lacing. Actually disappointed in this aspect of it. The sweet pumpkin aroma is very overpowering, though. It is about all you can smell. Malty taste up front, followed by overwhelming pumpkin spices. Very mild bitter aftertaste. While good, the taste did get a little sweet after a while. I will say that this was from the 2013 Fall batch, so the pumpkin taste had more time to pop out. I would want to try the 2014 batch to see how it may differ. Would be a great beer for an after Thanksgiving dinner with dessert.
