This beer is heavy on the spice but the sweetness balances it out well. It has a great, strong aroma and is enjoyable despite the strong spices. Pumpkin finishes out the beer in a fuzzy and distractingly tacky feel. Alcohol is very gently warming.

Really enjoyed this one from Elysian. The beer had pretty good pumpkin flavor, with plenty of spice as well. While on the sweet side (as pumpkin beers generally are), there was enough underlying hoppy bitterness to bouy and counter that sweetness, and the beer out a bit. I thought that greatly enhanced this beer's drinkability.

Not a huge fan of the style, but regardless, this was one of the better versions I've had in some time.
