From tap. Pours hazy brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and slight spiced to herbal. Herbal, cinnamon, sweet and caramelish. Toffee and caramelish. Bitter and toasted malty into the finish. Very interesting.

Thanks to 5000 for sending this bottle my way. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some cream. brown sugar, coffee and pumpkin. The flavor is a mix of pumpkin and coffee. Fairly sweet with some creamy cinnamon and brown sugar notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great beer.

BrewDad (5040) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Dark brown in color, hazy with a thin white head. Tons of aroma and flavor. This was a thick dark beer with added coffee and tons of spices. Nice fun beer by Elysian once again.

Bottle - Spice, chocolate and coffee. Clear dark copper with a light brown head. Spice, coffee and chocolaty roast. Finish has some cinnamon heat. Like something from Starbucks, very nice.

Pours an extremely dark brown, almost black. Head is 1/3 inch and khaki colored. Head retention is good and lacing is very good. Smell is big on pumpkin and pumpkin spices, cinnamon and nutmeg dominate. Not really getting any coffee. Roasted caramel malt is also in the mix, alcohol and hops are not. Taste is of standard pumpkin ale, lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Caramel malts add some roasted flavor, even getting some pie crust. Not getting much coffee, which is disappointing. Easy going down at 5% abv. Mouthfeel is light and somewhat thin. Head added a tiny bit of texture, beer was well carbonated. Overall this was a pretty good pumpkin beer. Not too sweet or overly spiced. Only wished coffee was more pronounced. I got almost no coffee which I think would have really set this beer apart. Regardless, it was worth trying, hoping they’ll release this annually and up the dose of coffee

Holy coffee choco pumpy love in the nose. Lovely spice of cinnamon and sweet love. Taste is exactly as beer is described but mouthfeel seems a bit thin. overall pretty tasty but a glass is enough.

SHIG (3667) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dark black brown with red edges, head is tan and dissipated fast. Aroma is pumpkin spice coffee like, very inviting. Loads of nutmeg, cinnamon spice hits me first with pumpkin and coffee towards the finish.

@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. Une bière noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez remplit d’épices de tarte à la citrouille,de muscade, clou, cannelle et de café. La bouche est tout aussi remplit de saveurs, une finale sur les épices et le café. La texture est crémeuse. Un régal. La réponse au PSL de Starbuck, en mieux.

Almost black with a brown head. Good stuff! Bold pumpkin and spice flavors with great coffee notes and chocolate. Silky body, lactose?
