Bottle @ Dans house. Thanks again Armin! Pours deep brown appearance with a small brown head. Slightly peppery, chocolate, pumpkin, light citrusy, cinnamon aroma. A bit tangy, orange citrusy, spicy cinnamon, pulpy pumpki, roasty chocolate flavor. Pretty tasty but a bit spicy.

The pour is black with a moderate, tan, frothy head which is somewhat diminishing and leaves sporadic lace. The nose is very nice with obvious cinnamon, some allspice, graham cracker, slight pumpkin seed, burnt caramels, some molasses, and faint herbal roast. The flavor is similar with pumpkin and cinnamon prominent, still some molasses, still very caramelly, quite sweet for a stout, light herbal roast in there. The palate is silky, medium to full, soft to lively. The finish is long, mostly sweet, and still a bit spicy from the cinnamon, caramel and molasses, and herbal roast lingering. A bit sweet at times, especially for a stout, but the spicy cinnamon notes kept some balance as did the finish of the herbal roast. A good use of pumpkin in a no-traditional style but it could have used a bit more typical stout notes to balance the sweet notes. Nice fall beer.

The scent of cinnamon is strong & I liked it. The flavor is of chocolate & pumpkin with an after taste of pumpkin. It is a very smooth beer. Id have another.

Bomber from World Beers. Black-brown pour with a short brown head which turns tan as it shortens to a thin rim and leaves minimal lace. Nose is roast pumpkin and baking chocolate, with a bit of cinnamon as it warms. Medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation. Roasted pumpkin, bitter chocolate, dark berries, toffee and cinnamon. Hops are faint, maybe some citrus and pine. Elysian went with minimal spices on this one, letting the malt and pumpkin shine through - and the beer is all the better for it.

Black pour, average head with good lacing. Aroma is mild, mainly roasted malt. Pumpkin does not come to mind with the aroma. Taste is very balanced of roasted malt and hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is good. I dont get pumpkin out of this. Its a good stout, but I was expecting some really interesting hints of pumpkin pie. Oh well, a decent beer at any rate.

Nose is bid chocolately and pumkin. Taste is dry and reminds me of cracking a fresh roasted pumpkin seed. Pumpkin taste gives way to malts and then a long finish of pumkin and floral hops. Very heavy mouthfeel for this low of an abv stout. Head is tan but doesnt last. Overall a good way to think out of the box for your normal pumpkin beer.

Bottle from Bier 30. Pours a pitch dark color with a thick brown head. A rich nose of chocolate, pumpkin and big spices. The flavor is great: smoke, pumpkin, light bitter hops, roast, very big flavor and meshes together. Very good.

650 ml. bottle. 6.5% ABV per the label, so they have changed the recipe a bit. Pours a medium, long lasting, dark beige head, with some lacing, over an opaque black (SRM 40) body..........nose is coffee to start, then lighter chocolate, hints of toffee/caramel, cinnamon, hints of squash......taste is toffee/caramel, ginger, light coffee, hints of cocoa, finishing with a roasted malt, hop bitterness......mouth feel on the heavy side of medium, carbonation low. The pumpkin was used with a light hand, often the squash dominated, but not here. The spices, which are often too much, are nicely integrated into the other ingredients making for a nicely balanced beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Pours deep, dark, opaque black with a medium brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and pumpkin spice, especially cinnamon, giving it a spicy sweet character. Flavor follows suit with bitter chocolate, a hint of pumpkin flesh, and a spicy cinnamon, nutmeg, clove finish. Really nice.
