Bottle courtesy of Ed, thanks very much! Hazy amber color, white edge head. Aroma is like snorting pure cinnamon, it overwhelms all else. Taste is similar.

5000 (6599) - 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 isnít 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 doesnít make this one a winner.   Tiz okay, but a little difficult to finish a single 22oz by ones self.

Mora2000 (6154) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
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.

AirForceHops (6079) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2013
22 oz. bottles from Oliverís Beverage Center, Albany, NY. This bottle is last seasonís. Bottle stored properly in my cellar. Amber orange color in a snifter. Nose is really tempting. Cinnamon apples, yams and a light note of pumpkin. Flavor starts with the Apple cinnamon with yams, pumpkin and light caramel malts in the finish. 7.4 ABV is covered up totally. More fruits and spices rather than pumpkin, yet stil real flavorful.

BuckeyeBoy (5823) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 19, 2015
22oz bottle number nine in the set. Pours out a dark amber topped with a sand head. Nose is bam cinnamon cocoa sweetness and some pumpkin. Taste is more of the cinnamon gingerbread roast malt cocoa. Wow this is good. Man Elysian kills pumpkin beers.
