My kind of pumpkin beer! Love it with the stout treatment. Deep earthy pumpkin flavors, probably from the seeds? Dark roast bitter malts. Cinammon just on the nose. Not overspiced and definitely in the dry style. Think this is pretty much sold out around town, but gonna look for some more for a campfire this fall.

On tap @ Founding Farmers. Poured a deep espresso with a medium tan frothy head and excellent lacing. Aroma includes roasted caramel malt, pumpkin seeds, bakers chocolate, tobacco, and plum. Taste begins with flavors expected from a stout being coffee beans, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and dark fruits, but then a note of roasted pumpkin soup sneaks in and blends perfectly. Wonderful balance of flavors, big mouthfeel, and very drinkable. Love this beer.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a frothy tan head. Nose is caramel, pumpkin and cinnamon with hints of red wine. Creamy medium body with a tang and a buzz. Taste is black coffee, mild chocolate and molasses, earthy pumpkin and cinnamon stick. As it warms the roasted seeds come out adding a smoky, nutty note. A nice change of pace from the usual over sweet spice brews but maybe too much on the dark side.

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 I’ve been dying to try. I’ve 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, it’s still a pretty decent stout by itself. Buy it if it’s on the shelf but don’t 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 @ Chuck’s 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.
