St. Arnold Pumpkinator

10% ABV. Pumpkin beer from St. Arnolds Brewing Company in Houston, TX. Thanks to a buddy for hooking me up with a bottle as he had to wait a little over in line once this beer was released at his local bottle shop (6 bottle limit per person)! 22oz bomber, brewed in 2012, poured into dimpled mug. Poured a near black with a nice khaki head. Aromas of toasted vanilla, clove, some toffee, and cinnamon. Warming yet lively palate. Spicy on the palate with a nice clean malt roast background- chocolaty, coffee, toasted cinnamon, clove, cardamon, and mild ginger cookie. Medium to thick mouthfeel with nice thin lacing that lasted well throughout. Quite a complex beer with some alcohol warmth throughout. There’s a touch of smoke underneath to give more depth. Has a late lingering rich black malt roast. Nice subtleties. Sure wish I had more of this beer – this quickly hit my top 5 all-time pumpkin beers.
