Important: let this beer warm to at least 50° before enjoying. This beer is black with some ruby highlights. The nose is full of pumpkin pie spices and some alcohol. There are notes of nutmeg, caraway and vanilla. The taste starts with chocolate malt with a hint of spice and rolls into a warm spicy alcohol taste which has the effect of creating the balance that usually comes from the hop bitter. There is some hop bitter on the finish, but not much. Overall, this beer finishes relatively dry for such a big beer. As it warms, the spices move forward in the taste and the chocolate moves to the finish. The pumpkin provides a pleasant undertone and a nice mouthfeel. The spices will probably fade some over time; they mellowed considerably while still in the fermenter.

Originally brewed as Divine Reserve #9.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 9/2/10 as Divine Reserve #9, updated 12/1/12 as Pumpkinator-Pumpkin pie porter. Pours really dark brown with a small dark head. Sweet and spicy, with nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon all distinct on the nose and tongue, with alcohol present, but fairly well hidden. Plenty of spice and roast with moderate bitterness. Medium bodied and a bit creamy. Now that it’s called Pumpkinator, it says imperial pumpkin stout on the bottle, but it seems a bit thin for an imperial stout. Good stuff; definitely let it warm. 8 8 8 4 16 4.0 11/7/15-Black with a good sized mocha head. Lots of spices on the nose (nicely not overdone), roast, and a hint of coffee. Taste is roast, pumpkin pie, and spices; all really well portioned. Medium-full bodied (pretty thin for an imperial stout for sure, but still reasonably full), dry, booze very well masked, and creamy smooth. Very nice.8 5 8 4 16 4.1
