22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, pumpkin, a little spiciness, and floral hops. Flavor the same, with a lot of malts and the pumpkin present but not overpowering. Average to smooth texture. A great pumpkin stout.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 3/24/13

Aroma: It has lots of spice (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin, etc.), with caramel, roast, and chocolate
Appearance: This one pours a brown-black color with a small brown head and some spotty lace-work
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet/malty, with a heavy spice component and a later bitterness too
Palate: This one is medium-full bodied, it has a fairly soft carbonation, and a smooth, dry finish
Overall Impression: I like how many different Pumpkin beers Elysian makes. Some are better than others (I thought Blight was amazing), but most of them have been not only good but interesting to try as well. This one is no exception, very good stuff.

Ferris (3800) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle - Pumpkin, cinnamon and roasted malts, with a bit of bitter chocolate. Jet black with a thin brown head. Roasted malts, chocolate and a sweetness that I believe is coming from the pumpkin. The stout is great, but does mask most of the pumpkin flavor. Nice long finish where the pumpkin does reappear.

Bottle courtesy blutt59. Very dark brown color, white bubbles. Aroma is fresh spice, some chocolate and almost a candied bubble gum nose. Flavor is also a gummy sweet flavor. Dark malts with some pumpkin spice. Pretty tasty.

12 oz. on tap. Opaque deep mahogany with a lasting creamy film of bubbles. Aroma is pie spice with cocoa and a hint of pumpkin. Taste is cocoa, lightly tart dark berry, pie spices and some baked pumpkin. Medium body is balanced, slightly watery as so to be drinkable and has average carbonation.

burg326 (3660) - Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
22 ounce bottle pours a cola black color, aromas of all spice, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Flavors are roasted malt, but the pumpkin steals the show, pumpkin and allspice is all you get, overpowering at times.

SHIG (3561) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle thanks to IBrew2or3: Poured a black color with a brown head. Aroma is a mix of spices, pumpkin, and roasted malts. Taste is very festive with spicy pumpkin and yet has roasted chocolate to give it that stout blend. Very interesting brew!

Draught at Washington Brewer’s Festival, 2014. Pours a very dark brown color with a bit tan head on it. Nose has a lot of pumpkin on it, with only a slight bit of roasting. Tate is smooth and slightly roasty, with a moderate amount of pumpkin spice to it.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft at Falling Rock during the Pumpkin Event. Pours pitch black with a tan head. The nose is nice. Light nutmeg notes, some cocoa and an earthy squash note. On tasting, the spicing is nicely subdued and not overbearing. Some fine chocolate notes come out and then the earthiness comes through again. Nice light caramel note to tie it together. Pretty solid beer, very likable.
