Saint Arnold Pumpkinator has a thick, creamy, beige head, some decent lacing, and a dark brown, cane syrup-looking appearance. The aroma is sweet, roasted, and somewhat spicy, and the flavor is even more-so spice oriented. Sadly, there is just too much allspice taste to it, which overrides everything else, from what I could tell. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Pumpkinator finishes sweet, syrupy, and heavy. It’s a sipper, for the most part. Overall, I think it’s good enough, but overly spiced. It's worth checking out.

Too much spice like these things always are. Got it because I couldn't get any of the Bishop's series.

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.
