Bottle courtesy of Ed, thanks very much! Hazy amber color, white edge head. Aroma is like snorting pure cinnamon, it overwhelms all else. Taste is similar.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Cinnamon, pumpkin, apple, pie crust, and some light hoppy bitterness in the finish. Damn good stuff.

22. Pours a clear rubied dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of eggy lace. Big sweet spicy nose, lots of nutmeg and cinnamon. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other pie spices on the mid palate. Sweet finish.

BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 19, 2015
22oz bottle number nine in the set. Pours out a dark amber topped with a sand head. Nose is bam cinnamon cocoa sweetness and some pumpkin. Taste is more of the cinnamon gingerbread roast malt cocoa. Wow this is good. Man Elysian kills pumpkin beers.

AirForceHops (7240) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2013
22 oz. bottles from Oliver’s Beverage Center, Albany, NY. This bottle is last season’s. Bottle stored properly in my cellar. Amber orange color in a snifter. Nose is really tempting. Cinnamon apples, yams and a light note of pumpkin. Flavor starts with the Apple cinnamon with yams, pumpkin and light caramel malts in the finish. 7.4 ABV is covered up totally. More fruits and spices rather than pumpkin, yet stil real flavorful.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bright amber color with ivory head. Big cinnamon, brown sugar, toast aromas. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Chai spice tea flavors of cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, with mild vegetal pumpkin--solid malty caramel base brew---tasty

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle:   Dirty amber, dark, some sediment, moderate sandy head, little lacing.   Fairly simple aroma of spices, mainly a woodsy like cinnamon.   Very spicy on the tongue, but very one sided.   Comes across as this earthy and fresh cut tree bark like cinnamon.   Also appears a bit dry.   This one is overly simple in that there isn’t much depth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes one dimensional, cinnamon, cinnamon, and more cinnamon.   Very interesting in that the cinnamon is a bit different, but still doesn’t make this one a winner.   Tiz okay, but a little difficult to finish a single 22oz by ones self.

ben4321 (6506) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Whole Foods - Bowery, 3/15/13

Aroma: The aroma is an excellent mix of pumpkin and cinnamon, with some other spices too
Appearance: It pours an orange color with a small off-white head and spotty lace
Flavor: Taste-wise, the cinnamon is quite present and works well with the pumpkin and light hops
Palate: The body is medium, it has a good feel, average carbonation, and a spicy finish
Overall Impression: This one is really impressive. It has to be one of the best pumpkin beers I have ever had, and I am a big fan of the style. Excellent stuff. The cinnamon adds a really nice component. I’m excited that I was able to locate a bottle of this one, and I hope they produce it again in the future outside of the Apocalypse series.
