Draft. Deep black, tan head. Soft aroma of pumpkin spice. Medium body, a little sharp finish which isn't pleasant. Just okay ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (464) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a creamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate chip cookie with a touch of pumpkin and spice. Flavor has lots of chocolate, touch of roasted malts, and just the right amount of pumpkin, not overdoing it. Medium body with a lingering chocolate roasted malts. Excellent pumpkin beer and stout!

Sarlacc83 (813) - Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle A: Opaque black with a firm foamy cappuccino head. Lacing. N: Cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, coffee, pumpkin, cola, earth, dry leaves, tobacco, some graham cracker. T: Bitter and sweet, leaning heavily towards the first. M: Medium - heavy body. Chalky. O: Better than Punkuccino. Could actually use more sweetness on this one. Too much cinnamon as well.

Maltser85 (292) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours almost black, hints of deep brown around the edges with a mocha head. Aroma of cinnamon and slight chocolate. Taste is cinnamon with a nice chocolate presence. Some other pumpkin pie spice as well, only a trace of pumpkin though. Yummy stout, but misses the mark. Body is right for the ABV.

Bottle. Black with thin tan head. Aroma is straight pumpkin bread. Taste follows pretty closely and adds some roasted malt. Thin sticky mouthfeel. Eh.

mansquito (3449) - 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 dont know if I really tasted much of the pumpkin seeds for example. However, this was a pretty unique stout.

ryanscourt (779) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Strong pumpkin flavors without much of the strong spices. Fairly smooth. Not a bad beer but the strong choclatly flavors dont have a big role, actually finishes slightly bitter with hops.

Poured from a bomber. Very black with a medium creamy head. Nose is roasty and heavy cinnamon. Pumpkin is subtle, the stout is chocolatey and earthy. Reminds me of burnt cinnamon toast. A unique pumpkin beer for sure.

Dates on Elysian beers? Right on. Way to go, Elysian - stamped bottom left corner of the bottle - "pkg 09/03/14." This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with a slim fingers worth of off white to tan foamy head. Light lacing traced around the glass in a slight foamy way. The smell started off with a decent strong cinnamon pop over top of a light silky smooth chocolate coated pumpkin spice. This followed through on the taste in a sweet sticky fashion. On the palate, this one runs over in a sweet to spicy and sticky cinnamon over my tongue. Its about medium bodied with a good sipping quality about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good pumpkin beer to have again, though not as stout like as I had wished for. Still worthy!
