On tap at Tangletown. Overwhelming cinnamon aroma. Flavor is also dominated by cinnamon. Otherwise, the flavor profile is the same as Night Owl, which I do love. I got a couple hints of alcohol burn.

16oz draft at Belmont Station.
A: Reddened copper with a cloud-covered head. Looks fantastic.
N: Cinnamon graham crackers with extra cinnamon. Hints of nutmeg. The pumpkin is hidden underneath.
T: Cinnamon sugar, bread, and alcohol. Some cola flavorings. Not quite up to Elysian’s normal standards as the spices dominate the pumpkin.
M: Somewhat thin, relatively speaking. Wish the pumpkin lent more body.
O: Recommendable for the pumpkin completist or those who like cinnamon hearts. Everyone else will probably be disappointed.

Drought. Amber-orange color, beige creamy head, strong pumpkin aroma, low carbonation, long finish. Pleasing pumpkin beer, in fact best that I’ve ever had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle - pours cloudy brown-orange with smallish white-tan, bubbly head, diminishing with no real lacing. Aromas of peppers, clove, spice, and slightly sour fruit. Medium-light palate with cool tastes, finishing slightly metallic with cinnamon notes. Tastes of creamy orange, nuts, pumpkin becomes more apparent as it warms. Ok, but a bit cool on the flavor profile for a seasonal for my taste.

Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured copper orange with a thin, off-white head. Nose had straight cinnamon spice. Nice body, mild carbonation. Tasted mostly of cinnamon. One dimensional in that sense. Not horrible, but wish I could get more depth in its other aspects.
