ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Whole Foods - Bowery, 3/15/13

Aroma: The aroma is an excellent mix of pumpkin and cinnamon, with some other spices too
Appearance: It pours an orange color with a small off-white head and spotty lace
Flavor: Taste-wise, the cinnamon is quite present and works well with the pumpkin and light hops
Palate: The body is medium, it has a good feel, average carbonation, and a spicy finish
Overall Impression: This one is really impressive. It has to be one of the best pumpkin beers I have ever had, and I am a big fan of the style. Excellent stuff. The cinnamon adds a really nice component. Iím excited that I was able to locate a bottle of this one, and I hope they produce it again in the future outside of the Apocalypse series.

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 Iíve had.

AirForceHops (3194) - 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.

poisoneddwarf (1714) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Rated two nights ago as part of our annual pumpkin beer night. Bomber bought at Yokes Spokane Valley, thanks Anderson01! Pours hazy orange with a collapsing beige head. Aroma consists of nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is sweet and meaty with a lightly dry bitter finish. Taste is nice and full of pumpkin pie flavor. Bittering hops start to reveal themselves in the finish after warming up a little. A really good pumpkin beer, but itís not pushing any boundaries like most of the beers in the Apocalypse series by Elysian.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Dark clear brown/red pour with a thin white head. Aroma is cinnamon. That's about it. Flavor is sharp, spicy and bitter. Cinnamon overwhelms. Sharp and almost acrid. Not very pleasant.
