Bottle - maple and pumpkin nose, has chunks of pumpkin that settle to bottom. Nice blend of spices, pumpkin, and slight heat finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy dirty orange with a thin off-white head that disappears by the second sip and leaves very little lace. Very pleasant aroma of cinnamon and pumpkin with notes of vanilla, nutmeg and even a bit of graham cracker. The flavor is very similar to the aroma with the same components and is quite good. Very reminiscent of a pumpkin pie. Well rounded mouthfeel. Medium bodied. One of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a small white head. The aroma is extremely heavy on the cinnamon with a little bit of nutmeg and some pumpkin thrown in. The flavor also has a ton of cinnamon in it, but there is also a good bit of brown sugar. The pumpkin is nice as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Elysian definitely knows how to make pumpkin beers and this one is no exception.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Cinnamon, pumpkin, apple, pie crust, and some light hoppy bitterness in the finish. Damn good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 On tap at Elysian Fields. Pours an amber orange color with a medium white head with good lacing. Smells of cinnamon and a few other spices. Has the same flavors in the smell but has a slight pumpkin flavor in the back end. The cinnamon dominates though. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. Overall this is a pretty good pumpkin beer but they went a little overboard on the cinnamon in my opinion.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle:   Dirty amber, dark, some sediment, moderate sandy head, little lacing.   Fairly simple aroma of spices, mainly a woodsy like cinnamon.   Very spicy on the tongue, but very one sided.   Comes across as this earthy and fresh cut tree bark like cinnamon.   Also appears a bit dry.   This one is overly simple in that there isn’t much depth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes one dimensional, cinnamon, cinnamon, and more cinnamon.   Very interesting in that the cinnamon is a bit different, but still doesn’t make this one a winner.   Tiz okay, but a little difficult to finish a single 22oz by ones self.
