Poured from its bomber bottle, this beer is very dark brown- almost black- in color and a moderate pour is all that is necessary to produce a frothy head of foam that lasts and lasts. The nose on this beer is one of pumpkin bread with chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, ginger, and other spices. It is a very enticing scent and you just know, with a prelude like this, that the beer going to be a good one.

St. Arnold Pumpkinator doesn’t disappoint in the taste department. The nose leads directly where you would expect, with flavors like pumpkin, assorted spices like those mentioned above, a little bit of chocolate, some coffee, some caramel, and dark malts with a slightly alcoholic finish. The full- bodied beer takes all that you love about stout and then adds pumpkin and spice to arouse the senses and leave you begging for more.

This dark, rich ale is complex and very interesting and I doubt any craft beer connoisseur will come away disappointed. I like pumpkin beers in general, but many of them are a little too light and sometimes even watery. There is no such concern with this dark malt beverage treat. The beer is full and flavorful and each sip grabs you and never lets go.

St. Arnold Pumpkinator is not an easy beer to find, but it is worth going out of the way to track it down and experience it one delectable sip at a time. It is probably the best imperial pumpkin ale I have ever tried and it’s a shame it isn’t sold with greater frequency. Grab some bottles if you can find them, and experience this award winning beer as part of your Halloween festivities.

just beautiful pumpkin beer, the best one ive had in a long time, and up there with the eddyline as my favorite of this year. its a big dark stout, but drinks a whole lot lighter than its listed 10% abv. dark chocolate color, milkshake thick head, and an unbelievable aroma. more pumpkins than spice, with a bready toast malt profile and not a ton of stout barley bitterness. i get some pie spice, but its subtle. i get vanilla too but not sweet vanilla. the aromas are strong, all of them, and its very appetizing. the flavor is true to the nose, and i love the way the spice and squash are integrated with the normal properties of a well made imperial stout. the creamy feel, the bitter roast, and the pumpkin flesh all really go well together. i have had some other dark pumpkin brews, but this one takes the cake for its unique use of spicing, and how big the beer is without forgoing drinkability. i mean, a glass of this went down real easy, like a 5% porter, the alcohol cannot be detected at all, and i was actually shocked to learn its as high as it is. a pumpkin beer with staying power too, this was nice in late december, and doesnt make me think autumn at all. a unique culinary brew too, i could do a lot with this. best beer ive had from saint arnold by far, this is the first one to really blow me away. loved it.

2014 vintage, 22oz bottle poured into a goblet

A- pours pitch black in color with a small foamy and fuzzy khaki colored head that eventually disappears completely, leaving nothing behind

S- nice bouquet of pumpkin pie spicing up front; nutmeg, allspice, clove, raw pumpkin, brown sugar, pie crust, molasses, vanilla, chocolate malt, hint of caramel/toffee

T- pure pumpkin pie flavor with an emphasis on nutmeg & clove, underlying cinnamon, allspice, raw vegetal pumpkin, vanilla cream, coffee, dark chocolate, big roasted malt linger that stands up nicely to the spicing

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into a chewy silky finish

O- nearly perfect blend of pumpkin spicing with a bold base stout that adds a nice roasty finish. One of the best pumpkin stouts out there

A: The beer pours a very dark brown, almost black. The head is pretty thin with a nice almond color.

S: I'm picking up a nice amount cinnamon, clove and a bit of all spice. It has a slight cider scent too. When I look deeper, I am getting some roasted malt and something that smells like Dr. Pepper

T: Wow this beer is crazy. The spices are amazing and go perfect with the chocolate type flavor. There is a tiny bit of roasted malt too.

M: The beer is pretty smooth, has a nice amount of carbonation and some crispness on the back of the throat.

O: This beer is freaking delicious. The spices are absolutely perfect and just blow me away on how ling it lingers. I am so glad that I bought so many bottles. I cant wait to see how this ages.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. This pours an almost black color with an okay tan head which quickly dissipates. The smell is definitely of pumpkin and spice, there are a little roasted malts underneath. The feel is medium to thick and creamy. The taste is pretty good, deep dark roasted malts, lots of pumpkin and spices, overall very good.

So I've been pretty excited about this beer...

Appearance:
Dark, dark brown stout with a light tan head and creamy lacing. There is lots of particulate matter floating around as well.
The head falls down along the outer rim, but a few swirls will give the beer a regenerated thin covering.

Smell:
Whoa, banging pumpkin spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) predominate this beer's nose. However, once the beer warms it really starts to bring out a very ripe pumpkin aroma. This may be the first time I've smelled a beer and been confused by the true essence of pumpkin present!

Taste:
A super roasty pumpkin pie stout! The roastiness predominates but a medicinal spicy aftertaste lingers on my palate. This is a very interesting beer with a lot more pumpkin than I had expected. Honestly, I love it; it's got attributes of a rich winter stout mixed with fall pumpkin ale tradition. How can you go wrong?

Mouthfeel:
This beer is a tad more carbonated that I would prefer, but has a superbly bold, spicy aftertaste. There's a very minimal alcohol burn. I would have liked a tad more body and sweetness to make this perfect, but it's quite a different pumpkin ale sensation than I'm used to!

Overall:
I'm super excited to have 2 bottles because I think a year of age will really help this beer in regards to excess carbonation.
Something about it is just delicious and I'm happy to finally share & review!

Bottled On Date: 100511
Cap Fortune: "Baby got bock"
22oz Bomber to St Arnold Lawnmower shaker pint glass

Pours opaque, cola with no light penetration whatsoever. Off white 3/4 inch head hangs out for about a minute then dissipates, with light lacing. Very aromatic of pumpkin and nutmeg, but not too sweet. The pumpkin isn't as pronounced in the taste as in the nose; the nutmeg is the dominate one here. Nice body with good amount of carbonation. This is very tasty and enjoyable indeed.

I heard the recipe was changed up slightly from the Divine Reserve 9, and it has been a few years since I've had the DR9, so its a bit hard to say which is better. What I can say is, its not as spicy as the DR9 was. When I do a side by side tasting, I'll do another posting.

Pour is deep brown, almost black with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Big spice - nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper - lightly roasty, big pumpkin, and sweet potatoes in the aroma. Taste is roasty, tangy, sweet potatoes, bourbon, raisins, heavy cinnamon, nutmeg, and light vanilla with big spicy finish. Slick mouthfeel with media carbonation. Really nice use of spice with well hidden alcohol. Chocolate pumpkin pie.

Can't really read the writing on this bottle but this is the 2013 batch.

A: Pours black with a tall, frothy light brown head. Head fizzes out somewhat quickly. Zero sign of lacing. Decent retention.

S: Pumpkin and pumpkin spices abound. Notable nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Smells like fresh, hot pumpkin pie. Touch of chocolate from the roasted malt but the spices dominate here.

T: Whoa. Burst of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices as mentioned above. Loads of cinnamon with nutmeg and allspice joining it. Strong chocolate from the roasted malt joins it however and makes for a wonderful combination. Cinnamon is quite strong, lending almost a bit of heat. Get some grainy cinnamon and sugar in the finish really. It's sweet and spicy in general. Lingering pumpkin spices between sips.

M: Fairly heavy bodied, viscous and smooth.

O: Excellent pumpkin beer. Top of the line, in my opinion. Great combination of pumpkin pie and chocolate really makes this one stand out. Big, bold flavors and top-notch balance pull this one together nicely. One of the very best. Absolutely delicious.

Pours black and beautiful with a nice head.

Smell is amazing, spicy pumpkin pie and Christmas, wow.

Taste is full or more awesomeness, brown sugar, apple cider , cloves cinnamon and pumpkin awesomeness.

This is an amazing pumpkin ale, and I don't like pumpkin ale - this is just about perfect for the style, so good!

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this

Review adapted from notes taken 9/7/12

Appearance: Dark, dark amber, nearly black from a distance with some brown highlights - creamy beige head, fades quickly to a tan ring, leaves a few spots of lacing

Smell: A mind-blowing, intoxicating experience, assuming you love pumpkin - this smells like someone made a pumpkin pie and then had chocolate sex with it - pumpkin flesh, pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, clove, cinnamon sugar) - buttery pie crust, light, pale, and caramel malts - pumpkin bread - straight-up chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate - absurd and arousing

Taste: Not as epic as the aroma, but very good - pumpkin pie, with the aforementioned pumpkin pie spices - light on the pumpkin flesh, but very malty and pie crust-like, just more burnt - pale, buttery, toasted, slightly burnt, cooked with some caramel - dark sugar, spices, with a slight bitter edge

Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of medium, nicely carbonated, nicely smooth, with a mild alcohol bite

Overall: Currently, the best pumpkin stout I've encountered

Chocolate and pumpkin. About a year ago, I made a pumpkin bread with semisweet chocolate chips. If you combined that bread with a homemade pumpkin pie, you would get this beer. It loses some magic as it warms, but it's very tasty.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a becker.

A: Very dark brown. Pours about a 2 finger, foamy, tan head. Effervescence clings to the sides of the glass. Settles to a blanket of foam, with peak and valley lacing.

S: Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon.

T: Pumpkin pie.... Like it smells... pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, with a little black licorice.

M: Full body, sweet and syrupy, but not cloying. High alcohol profile is absent. Slightly bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is great. Dark appearance, foamy head, and slight lacing. Nose is full and sweet fall spice. Tastes like is smells, pumpkin and fall spices with just a hint of bitterness. Overall, this is a great quaff.

22oz bomber poured into dimpled mug. Poured a near black with a nice khaki head. Aromas of toasted vanilla, clove, cinnamon and cardamon. 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. 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.

22oz bottle poured into a dimpled stein. Bottled on 9/24/12.

A: Dark black with a thick beige head. Head retention is excellent and sticks around all the way down the glass with sporadic lacing.

S: Pumpkin puree and spices, cinnamon mostly.

T: Pumpkin is up front with cinnamon and clove stronger than I thought they'd be after 7 months. A layer of sweet chocolate mixed with roasted malt is there as well. Earthy hops and alcohol in the finish.

M: Nice, thick, and creamy. A bit thin for what you'd expect from an impy stout, though.

O: My cellar got a little backed up and it took a while to get to this one. It was probably better that way as I typically don't like the strength of cinnamon & spices in pumpkin beers when they're young. Will try and grab 2 this fall when it comes back out.

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.

Appearance- Poured jet black with one finger of dark brown head that fades slowly, spots of chunky lacing stick on the sides of my tulip glass.

Smell: Lots of cinnamon and brown sugar, some burnt pumpkin, and then I get notes of chocolate, coffee, and more roastiness. Pumpkin character is there, but I get a lot of stout quality, impressive.

Taste: Brown sugar, burnt pumpkin and cinnamon come to mind. I get some nutmeg and allspice as well. Some chocolate character as well, but a good balance without overdoing the allspice as some pumpkin ales tend to do.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a fairly smooth texture. Alcohol well hidden and this drinks nicely without being overly cloying.

Overall: I thought this was fantastic. I really enjoy pumpkin in a stout setting so this hit home with me. I will definitely be purchasing some more!

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled 9/6/2012. Pours dense pitch black color with a small fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace that lingers. Light soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big pumpkin, chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, dark bread, brown sugar, molasses, allspice, and light ginger. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roasted notes with pumpkin and spices. Taste of big dark chocolate, pumpkin, cocoa, roasted malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, toast, dark bread, brown sugar, ginger, light clove, molasses, and light roasted earthiness. Lingering notes of dark chocolate, pumpkin, roasted malt, cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, dark bread, molasses, allspice, and light ginger on the finish for a while. Fantastic balance and complexity of roasted flavors with pumpkin and spice notes; with a great balance of spices that are not overdone at all; and zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish; very smooth to sip on. Overall this is a fantastic pumpkin spiced imperial stout! Great balance and complexity of roasted flavors with pumpkin and spices; and extremely smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

A- I've had this twice now. The first time it poured beautifully: deep dark brown with toasted brown head. Good size but quickly dissipating. Oddly, the second time I had it there were chunks of stuff floating to the top - Looked like cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice ... Not entirely appetizing.

S- Lots of dark malt, pumpkin pie spice/cinnamon and some anise.

T- All of the smells coming together simultaneously. Good thick pumpkin taste and just a slight tinge of alcohol.

M- Good heavy body. Leaves the mouth coated with its deliciousness

O- It's was my favorite pumpkin beer of the year. The chunks of stuff bummed me out a little, but ... I love the flavor.

Well now that Spring is over, it's 1 week, and winter gave summer and fall a miss, with the ice storm and inch of snow yesterday, I think it's time for another big stout. Also a really long and difficult frustrating day, so this should help. Thanks to HanksBeard (reddit) for this. Started not liking this brewery, only their Divine Reserve series was good, but lately I've found more beers from them that I liked. This even has the bottling info printing, bottle 297/300, bottled on 9/24/13, at 20:08.

Cap says "Porter one too", ok... anyways pours a nice mocha colored but smaller fizzy slight creamy head covering that fades at a fair rate, not that all bad for a 10% beer, leaves a little lacing, but huge legs, over a super pitch black beer.

Nose... whoa pumpkin, I was not expecting that much pumpkin, holy batman pumpkin!. Nice fruity like gourd note, cross vegetable fruity like aroma, with mild baking spices, a little sweet caramel note, with hints of a candy biscuity crust, almost a cinnamon crumble on the sides of a pie, hint of a nutty note, with more candy sweetness, toffee, even a hint of butterscotch, also some black malts, very slight roasty note, and faint cocoa.

Taste brings more pumpkin, but at least the dark malts are blended in nicely this time. More pumpkin out front, with lots of baking spices, cinnamon, allspice, clove, I think even a hint of cardamom, etc. A little biscuity crust again with a little cinnamon crumble, iwth a nice pumpkin pie filling. Malts bring nice dark malt profile, stouty bitterness but not a lot, hint of roast, touch of cocoa, and some dark caramel. Mild sweet characters with a touch of a dark corn syrup like flavor with the caramel and hint molasses like note, like sweeteners added to a pie. Also as it warms a hint of fluffy nougat and almost marshmallow note. Hops kick in a bit with an earthy spicy note, but not a lot, fair bitterness between the hops and dark malts, and even a little pumpkin flesh bitterness. Finish is quite sticky, syrupy feeling, semi sweet but drier, more bitterness too, with some baking spices lingering, a little pumpkin and black malts lingering too, finally a touch of warming booze but hidden nicely.

Mouth is fulled bod, touch syrupy and sticky, decent fluffy carb, hint of warming booze.

Overall quite nice, a lot more pumpkin than I though, and more spices, but a nice blend of them, and the malts have their way to shine as well for a nice overall balance, I was surprised how well it all balanced with the big dark malts and pumpkin notes. It was like pouring a great stout into a delicious pumpkin pie. Also the booze was hidden well, and hints of hops in there eventually.

Poured into a snifter on Thanksgiving night

Appearance: Cloudy, cola brown; light head, very little retention; some lacing.

Smell: pumpkin pie, cinnamon, leather

Taste: hard core pumpkin pie! Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. Maple syrup. Smooth, black pepper finish.

Mouthfeel: medium with strong carbonation. Fizzes on the tongue.

Overall: Best pumpkin beer I've tried. Solid, robust. Great with ham and turkey. This is the perfect finish to Thanksgiving. I know what I'm thankful for.

Re-review:

A: This beer is dark in the glass, but barely allows some light to shine through the edges making a dark brown ruby color. Head was about finger's length and dissipated quickly. No lacing.

S: Yep. The pumpkin is definitely there. I'm getting some spices and nutmeg as well.

T: This is a lot different than what I expected. Lots of pumpkin of course, gingerbread, graham cracker, vanilla, nutmeg, a touch of oak, and chocolate and coffee.

M: The mouth feel is pleasant. Pretty full-bodied, thick, with some carb on it.

O: This is an excellent beer, and I've bought it twice or thrice in the Fall. The balance between the chocolaty malts and the pumpkin/nutmeg character is almost perfect.

Bottle courtesy of cfh64, thanks again!

Pours a flat black color with a nice big tan head.

Aromas are spicy, notes of nutmeg, cloves, and light cocoa.

Taste starts out with some nice dark chocolate, molasses, and some alcohol warmth. Finish has pumpkin and spice notes, mostly ginger, cloves and nutmeg. Nice balance of stout and pumpkin pie flavors.

Mouthfeel is ok, but a bit thin for the style.

Overall, a very nice pumpkin beer, one of the best I have had in a while. Well done St. Arnold.

Thanks to angelmonster for this one!

A: Pours a very dark brown, practically black with a small tan head on top that reduces quickly leaving a nice ring of foam on top. Very thin lacing forms on the sides with decent cling.

A: Wow. Amazing pumpkin pie spice going on here. It smells just like pumpkin puree with some cinnamon mixed in. There is a little bit of chocolate as well.

T: Similar to the aroma, a nice blend of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and chocolate. There is also some brown sugar and a little bit of molasses.

M: Medium to full bodied with medium to high carbonation. Slight warming from the abv.

O: Very impressed, while not a pumpkin beer per se (at least on BA), it is one of the best pumpkin beers I have had. Great flavor profile, with a fantastic aroma. A nice sipping beer, would obviously be great on Thanksgiving.

Pours a dark dark brown. Touch of off-white head. Looks pretty solid. Smells incredible. Like a chocolate spiced pumpkin pie with cloves and cinnamon. Tastes the same. I'm quite impressed. The pumpkin pie melds with the chocolate quite well. A bit over carbonated but very nice overall
