Good pumpkin beer, love the Elysian. Cool appearance and phenomenal aroma. Would definitely buy again.

Deep dark brown coloured body with an oily glow on top, with a nice three centimetre tall rich lighter brown head that stays afloat for quite a while, with almost a pure black, 90% opaque tint when held up to the light. Aroma of rich spices, allspice, canella, coriander seed and a ton of squash and pumpkin scent - super pungent throughout with a nice sweetness from brown and caramelised sugars. Full-bodied; Rich full-bodied pumpkin flavours with a ton of spices including cloves and a bunch of anise along with a rich caramelised sweetness with a good deal of the spices coming through near the end as well and a bit of bitterness around the edges. Aftertaste is still quite a bit pungent from all the malts with a great squash complexity and body along with more of the spices than I expected with a nice depth of flavours and some smooth complexity with sugars. Overall, a very nice beer with an amazing body showing a ton of squash notes along with a big depth of spiciness and ending with a lot of sugars with caramel, toffee and chocolate even coming through at the tail end. A very nice beer throughout and one that should be sampled if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at K-1 Beer and Wine in Arlington, Virginia on 19-December-2018 for US$4,99 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia in Pungoteague, Virginia on 25-January-2018.

Bottle. Black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and pumpkin pie spices. Taste is chocolate and pumpkin pie with spices and roasted malt. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly and prickly carbonation. Ends with more pumpkin pie, chocolate cookies, roasted malt, vanilla and light coffee.

Aroma of pumpkin spice and cocoa, pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Taste of pumpkin spice, and cocoa with a slightly watery body and a lightly bitter malt finish. Cybercat (6508) - Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Pours rich coffee with a fairly thick dirty tan head. Aroma delivers cinnamon, cloves, roast malt, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Flavor presents all of the above plus a touch of - well, I suppose pumpkin. Definitely tastes like pumpkin pie plus smoky mocha, only a little spicier. As in clove and cinnamon, not hot peppers. Body is on the thin side for a stout, though fizz is good. Get moony - but please do so responsibly. Or call a cab, or Lyft.

Bottle. Hands down the best pumpkin beer I've had. Pumpkin beers are not a favorite of mine, but finally we have a beer that incorporates pumpkin and spice without trying to be a pie. Instead they use the sweet and savory character, and enough cinnamon, to give the [excellent] base stout something special. The aroma is kick-ass. Loved it. donandres (700) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - OCT 14, 2017

Dark pour with tan head. Aroma and taste are more cinnamon and nutmeg than pumpkin. Not a fan, but not bad Bricks (1171) - Delaware, USA - OCT 7, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 This seems like more of a cinnamon beer than a pumpkin beer to me. Wish it was slightly thicker on the palate. It is good, not great. Clarkdvm (548) - Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2017 22oz bottle. Quality pumpkin stout. 99 rating seems excessive but I must say, wonderful aroma.
