   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 28, 2013
THOUGHTS: Tons of Cinnamon. Almost more of a cinnamon beer than a pumpkin beer. Very nice. Basically it tasted like cinnamon sugar toast with pumpkin better spread on it and them some cinnamon added in both the flavor and aroma. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, but slightly hazy, medium to dark, brownish orange or light orangey brown with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had toasted malts, caramel and cake; fruity and sour pumpkin; honey; brown sugar; maple syrup; mostly cinnamon; a little pumpkin, and pumpkin butter.The initial flavor was slightly sour, bitter and acidic, and lightly sweet; while the finish was moderately sweet, slightly sour and acidic, and lightly bitter with an average to long duration. There was pumpkin, lots of cinnamon, honey, cake, toast, caramel, maple syrup more cinnamon, brown sugar, and fruity and sour pumpkin. The medium body was very creamy with fizzy carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Beer 9/12 in the Apocalypse Series. From the label: "Beer #9: BLIGHT will sustain you with an ale of pumpkin, dark brown sugar and a jolt of fiery Vietnamese cinnamon." Amber with a solid sheet of light cream foam and excellent clarity. No lace. Lots of cinnamon, a bit of malt, but mostly cinnamon, cinnamon and som more cinnamon. Taste carries through with more cinnamon, and a good dose of malty character and some nice bits of sweet molasses. This reminds me of Cocoa Mole "Light". This is the best of all the pumpkin beers Elysian makes. They should replace the Night Owl with this recipe. Medium on full bodied with a nice soft carb and an off dry finish. Good beer. I will buy more. Serving type: bottle 09-24-2012

Zeswaft (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2013
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.

AirForceHops (3529) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2013
22 oz. bottles from Oliver’s Beverage Center, Albany, NY. This bottle is last season’s. 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.

AmEricanbrew (6014) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bright amber color with ivory head. Big cinnamon, brown sugar, toast aromas. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Chai spice tea flavors of cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, with mild vegetal pumpkin--solid malty caramel base brew---tasty

vlan1 (203) - Eastern Shore, Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Very little head. Strong nose of Cinnamon and pumpkin. Almost like if Cinnabon made pumpkin cinnamon rolls. Very little head, pours your standgard amber color. Taste is more cinnamon than pumpkin. But not in a spicy burn your palate/throat like some other pumpkin beers. Very good. Very smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation. A very very solid beer overall.

trapped (908) - New York City, TURKEY - APR 21, 2013
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.

Beerdedone (2743) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and some faint pumpkin. Strong cinnamon flavor with nutmeg, cloves and light pumpkin.

ben4321 (4100) - 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. I’m 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.
