The divine 9, released as the Pumpkinator this year is great in bottles or casked kegged. Its a tough stout but soooooo good! Inthasheets (13) - Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2013
This beer takes the whole holiday season and puts in a bottle. The nutmeg, vanilla, warm spice and pumpkin blend together to create a smooth subtle flavor and lasting taste. It is now released seasonal around october as Pumpkinator in a limited series. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Yep, that is right, I am giving this one as close to perfect as I have come across in a while. This is after just one bottle, so if I see that it changes, I will alter accordingly. Drank at a perfect 52*~55*. Poured deep dark and nose of chocolate and spice and pumpkin. Very, very flavorful and rich. No heat from the alcohol at all. Yet very warming,
I do believe that drinking this at the right temp is really, really important. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Pours pitch black with a tiny beige fizz head. Smells of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin with hints of roastedness and chocolate. Taste is big pumpkin and clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a touch of roast. Full bodied, smooth texture, soft mouth-carbonation, Saint Arnold Pumpkinator finishes with a slight roasted, spiced pumpkin flavor. dfinney23 (3248) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2011

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Ah, Pumpkinator, how Iíve missed thee, divine though thy name might previously have been. 22oz bottle pours almost black with a thin tan head. Aroma is mostly pumpkin with some malt and pumpkin pie spices. Taste is huge pumpkin and molasses along with the spices and malt. Very rich and lingering. Itís criminal that Saint Arnold devotes so much capacity to their mostly average regular lineup while the good stuff sells out in hours.

WOW! Best pumpkin beer out there! Itís like drinking pumpkin pie followed by a cup of dark roast coffee. The smell is amazing, pumpkin spices galore. This would pair very well with a Thanksgiving meal. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Drank this on Stout Day 2013, 8 November. Pumpkinator Bomber poured into an English Pint glass. Looks pretty thick, aroma is sweet and pumpkin spicy. Holy cow drinking this beer is very good. Amazing caramel with some nutmeg and cinnamon, the flavor lingers for a long time on the tongue. A little syrupy with thick mouthfeel. Wow the best pumpkin beer I have ever had. Wish I could find more of this. shortamdstout (4) - Alabama, USA - JAN 13, 2010 does not count

Black ruby pour with great palate feel. Smell is exactly on point with what I expected. Taste is on point with an amazing fall,pumpkin beer. FROTHINGSLOSH (7670) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2011
UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 My first beer from this brewer. From the 11/2011 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla and intensely strong cinnamon. The flavor was overwhelmingly strong cinnamon sugar with light nutmeg, more cinnamon and then even more cinnamon. The Goldschlager of beers. The finish was long as the cinnamon coats the tongue and will not leave. Full bodied. Exceptional.
