Bottle via SL... Light black in color, decent little head that faded quickly. Nose of spices, pumpkin, roasted malts... Taste is ashy and chalky? As is warmed up the spices and pumkin came through but still have the chalky taste in my mind.... Medium body on the thinner side for a stout. Overall: Not bad but probably wouldnt get it again

Bottle poured into snifter. Another pumpkin beer Ive been dying to try. Ive never found pumpkin matched well in a stout, and this beer is no different. The malts are just too overpowering here, which takes away from any of the pumpkin flavor. That being, its still a pretty decent stout by itself. Buy it if its on the shelf but dont trade away for it and expect to get blown away.

Hearty roasted malt body. Smooth and creamy with notes of chocolate and hearty cookies. Rich pumpkin profile with highlights of toffee and fruit. Moderate pie spice character. This is the direction I would like to see more Pumpkin beers go. Great stuff.

Opaque black color. Great aromatics showing the pumpkin and lots of roasted autumnal spice. Full bodied with roasted stout character and hints of pumpkin and fall root vegetables on the back of the palate. Subtle finish.

pours black with a medium brown head, and some lacing. smell is of cocoa, slight pumpkin, some spice, and a touch of vanilla. taste is smooth, chocolaty, cinnamon, a little nutmeg, and some pumpkin. ends smooth and the pumpkin flavor does not overpower the taste.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 On tap @ Chucks 85th. Pours thick inky brown with a substantial mocha head that fades quickly. Aroma is roasty malts and a hint of sweetish pumpkin. Taste is big, rich, lightly charred chocolate malts. Pumpkin really only shows on the finish, and is light. Fruity hops provide bitterness throughout that lingers a bit. The pumpkin is a nice touch, but this is just an excellent rich chocolate stout. These guys own pumpkin beers. Elysian:pumpkin beers = Stone:IPAs. This increased availability this year is a great sign, glad more people will get a chance to try it.

Bottle at Dans courtesy of Armin. Thanks man!! Pour is deep brown with a brown head and good lacing. Pie crust, cocoa, nutmeg, spice, sweet potatoes, light peat, and licorice in the aroma. Taste is lightly roasted, heavy spice, marshmallow, soy, peat, and wood, with really no pumpkin characteristics showing up in the flavor. Creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad.

Aroma is... well Im indifferent. Lots of roasty flavors. Lots of pumpkin pie spice. maybe a bit of pumpkin. First dark pumpkin Ive had. Aroma is rarely great on a pumpkin beer, but the flavor on this... the darkness... is pretty awesome. Nice combo.
