UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 The second best pumpkin beer behind Pumking. This one too is like drinking liquid pumpkin pie.

Another decent pumpkin beer from Elysian. I actually prefer the Night Owl but this is not bad. Aroma was mostly nutmeg with a slight ginger and cinnamon tinge. Pour was a nice light brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was all spices (like the Night Owl) however the elevated ABV brought on more sticky sweet caramel malt. The nutmeg is strong in this one with the cinnamon dominating the aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Finish was like Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. YES!

Pours clear orange/amber with a medium off white head. Aroma has nice light pumpkin pie and spice with just a touch of crust. Flavor is very pumpkiny!...tangy pumpkin...spice is minimal but creeps in nicely with mild crusty notes as well. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish keeps the spice creeping in atop pumpkin pie. Very awesome!

From a growler, last night. Poured a very nice orange color, some hazy, nice white head for a 15 day old growler. Aroma was lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, spices. Flavor was amazing. Spicey pumpkin pie. Amazing.

From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a nice orange yellow, darker and hazy. The nose is gingerbread, cinnamon, pumpkin, spices. Taste is medium bodied, mostly sweet. Finishes so well with that spicy pumpkin pie feeling on your pallet. Elysian absolutely murders these fall beers, very impressed.

En barril, @the ginger man, NY. Magnífica cerveza a base de calabaza, con un aroma que parece que estas a punto de comer un pay de calabaza y cuyo bouquet dura hasta el último trago del vaso. Con un cuerpo medio pero sabor de bastante carácter, lleva muy bien su alto contenido alcohólico. Sabor con notas propias del ingrediente principal, caramelo y una variedad de lupulos. Un liger sabor a licorice y anis en el paladar hacen de esta cerveza un producto complejo en sabores a pesar del dominante gusto a calabaza. Grandiosa y robusta.
