Pours dark black with a swirling tan head. Nose is cinnamon, coffee, dark bitter chocolate, pumpkin, nutmeg, and Ginger. The taste is chocolate, slight bitter hops, pumpkin, cinnamon, and pie spices. The mouthfeel was very creamy, slightly thick, and the legs were moderate. Great brew.

22 oz. bottle- Pours black with a thin tan creamy head, aroma is spicy pumpkin pie and cinnamon. The flavor is chocolate with pumpkin added and lots of cinnamon, there is a bitterness to the taste as well. The palate is creamy, full bodied, medium carbonation, overall a tasty beer, but could use less bitterness.

Bomber poured into snifter. Beer #3 in our Halloween pumpkin beer tasting. Pours opaque black with a medium tan head. Nice toasted pumpkin pie aroma. Taste is very pumpkin pie with cinnamon the dominant flavor. Pretty high carbonation for a stout; medium-bodied. Different and good.

22 oz. from Tangletown. Whoo boy! Quite possibly the best, most flavorful beer I’ve ever had. Smells like ginger bread and tastes like heaven. A beer so rare they wouldn’t let me fill up a growler to take home (and it’s not offered at Elysian downtown). Can’t praise it highly enough.

sampled at GABF ’10. pours midnight black, head cannot be determined in a 1 oz pour. nose is dark roast and pumpkin, mouthfeel is thick and oily. taste is almost more pumpkin and spices on the front before the roast and burnt malts kick in. definately one of the best beers sampled on that wonderful evening. too bad elysian isn’t sold in mn, or i would have a cellar full of this brew.

Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured black with a brown head that dissipated to the edges slowly. Aroma was full of dark grains, some roast, some pumpkin and barley any spice that usually accompanies pumpkin. Flavor was a nice combination of dark grains and pumpkin with a light backing spice that balanced nicely.

On tap at Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Fest (Oct. 2010). Colour... very dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose... redolent of pie spice and roasted squash. Palate... tangy, sharply bitter and edgy with burnt brown sugar, burnt squash, and dark chocolate with a looong roasty finish. Dang nice stuff, but seems like some cellaring would be beneficial to round off the sharp edges.
