OLD GABF... I wrote, "THis is so bomb... i really haven’t had brew like this. Really dark stout with a straight,brown head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, roasted pumpkin, light pie spices. Flavor is a roasty chocolate and spiced pumpkin stout bomb but smooth drinking. REally can taste the pumpkin in a good way. One of the best uses of pumpkin I have ever seen."

This beer is amazing. Black pour and frothy tan head. Notes of cinnamon, vanilla, and fresh baked bread. Like a cinnamon roll. It's not overcrowded or cheapened by any flavor. Cocoa, cinnamon, a tough of pumpkin, a little root like bitterness to cut the sweetness. WOW ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours a black brew with a brown top. First whiff is pumpkin, spices and chocolate. Taste is roasty with coffee, bitter chocolate and some spice.

22 poured into a stout glass offers a dark abyss in a glass topped with a minimal, latte-colored head. The aroma is heavy nutmeg, cinnamon and is slightly nutty. I tip the glass for a first sip expecting nothing but spices, but am surprised by the depth of the flavor. I feel the cinnamon on the tip of my tongue, the nutmeg on the sides, but there’s a nice, dark, cocoa foundation holding everything together. Not over-spiced at all, lightly bitter with a short-lived and fairly dry finish. The carbonation is heavy enough to carry the brew, and maybe a little more than I am appreciating, but still not over the top. This is the first solid pumpkin beer I’ve tried, and am excited that it was an Elysian. A good pumpkin stout!

From tap. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan to brown head. Aroma is herbal, spiced and roasted malty. Caramelish. Spiced, soapy, toasted malty and herbal. Bitter and dry roasted finish.

Cinnamon seems to be the dominant factor, in both aroma and taste. A little nutmeg is also obvious. These two flavors mostly obscure the stout underneath, but also blends nicely. Overly smooth, slightly savory, and all around nice fall seasonal.

Dr_Fellini (496) - 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 (900) - 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 (307) - 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.
