Sampled at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition festival 2014 - Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has roast, chocolate, spice and pumpkin. It has a medium body with light roughness and mild sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with roast, earthiness, woodiness and a harshness. The finish adds some light pumpkin. Pretty nice for a pumpkin stout.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Tap. Pours a dark brown body with a nice frothy brown head. The nose is big pumpkin spice with lots of nutmeg and a fair amount of ppl in meat. The spice is balanced nicely with the chocolate and toast notes. The flavor is very well balanced between the spice and the roasty notes of the stout. There’s a nice amount of actual pumpkin flavor in here as well. Medium bodied and a little creamy with soft gentle carbonation. Pretty good stuff!

Draft at Capones, pitch black pour. medium tan head, good lacing. Again, lacking the pumpkin, basically a porter with notes of cocoa, charred nuts, ample malts, and roasted grains. Good for a porter but not so much for a pumpkin. Lots of bitterness. Medium body

GABF 2010 - probably one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had - the chocolate and richness of the malt is complimented but not overpowered by spicy cinnamon, roasty nutmeg, moderate pumpkin flavor - a bit of vanilla flavor on the tail end - lingering cinnamon and very light smokiness - fall in a glass.

ben4321 (5697) - 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.

22oz bobmer from a mix 4pack purchased at Spirits Brick. Poured a medium density dark black body with a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma is earthy, sugary bad chcolate, veggies, dark toast, burnt notes, bad vanilla. Medium body that finishes almost syrupy, soft carbonation, lingering burnt aftertaste. Flavor is earthy, wet burnt toast, bad vainlla, green leafy veggies, green peppers. Meh, it’s okay but overrated.

burg326 (5370) - 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.

mansquito (5341) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Rattle ’n’ Hum, NYC tap: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, pumpkin, and cinnamon. This has a very unique taste. It is nice and full bodied. The spiciness gives this a nice taste throughout. I don’t know if I really tasted much of the pumpkin seeds for example. However, this was a pretty unique stout.

cheap (5309) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Big black pour at the monaca bocktown. Seens to have a coffee background. Quite strong almost like impy stout but not. Not much aroma, fairly sterile on the olfactory. A tad sour inthe background. Not sure if I can taste any punkin. Some fine co2. Yes, just a little more beefy than expected.
