22oz. Pours deep hearty brown stout, light tan head. Nose is cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar ... ginger snap cookie! Body is nicely roasty and filling, lots of sweet herb/veggie coming through. Spritely and refreshing which balances a strong bitter/veggie taste. pretty interesting and well done

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Black, large beige head, foamy, sticky lacing.   Soft spicy nose, nutmeg, cinnamon, with underlying roasted malts and lactose.   Spicy on the tongue, aformentioned spices, a little pumkin and roasted malts.   Good balance.   A little tart and a little sweet.   Underlying Stout isn’t that big.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tiz fairly smooth.   Spiciness lingers, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin spices.   Lingering sweetness.   More of a spiced beer than a stout.   However it is very welcomed.   Not too many do this style, which makes it all the more intriguing.

Sampled at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition festival 2014 - Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has roast, chocolate, spice and pumpkin. It has a medium body with light roughness and mild sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with roast, earthiness, woodiness and a harshness. The finish adds some light pumpkin. Pretty nice for a pumpkin stout.

ben4321 (6829) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 3/24/13

Aroma: It has lots of spice (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin, etc.), with caramel, roast, and chocolate
Appearance: This one pours a brown-black color with a small brown head and some spotty lace-work
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet/malty, with a heavy spice component and a later bitterness too
Palate: This one is medium-full bodied, it has a fairly soft carbonation, and a smooth, dry finish
Overall Impression: I like how many different Pumpkin beers Elysian makes. Some are better than others (I thought Blight was amazing), but most of them have been not only good but interesting to try as well. This one is no exception, very good stuff.

This poured a very dark brown color with a big tan head. Aroma was very dark roasted malts, some chcol;ate, and pumpkin flesh. Flavor was thick and dark roasted malts, some sweet chocolate and espresso, and a nice pumpkin flesh taste on the finish, not artificial spices here at all.

dmac (6575) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2012
22oz bobmer from a mix 4pack purchased at Spirits Brick. Poured a medium density dark black body with a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma is earthy, sugary bad chcolate, veggies, dark toast, burnt notes, bad vanilla. Medium body that finishes almost syrupy, soft carbonation, lingering burnt aftertaste. Flavor is earthy, wet burnt toast, bad vainlla, green leafy veggies, green peppers. Meh, it’s okay but overrated.

BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Bomber bottle and served in NB Worthy glass: Pours a deep brown nearly opaque with a medium sized fluffy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, pumpkin, dough, chocolate, vanilla, walnuts, raisins and a light herbal vapours. The taste is well balanced between the spiced character, the pumpkin and the base stout. You get an initial hit of the spices but then the roasted and chocolate features come through. All the while the Pumpkin is there as well as a hint of coffee, plums and nuts. The mouth feel is slick and oily, moderate carbonation, a bit ashy on the finish. A well done brew I would easily drink again.
