Appears nearly black with a small deep brown head.
I get strong aromas of mild roasted coffee, cinnamon and pumpkin. There is a slight sour smell to the stout as well.
Tastes of mild roasted chocolate malt. A mild bitterness appears that pairs well with the mild fall spice blend. There is a nice pumpkin flavor. But the pumpkin quality of this beer is not as strong as most other pumpkin beers I have had and adds both richness and a mild bit of acidity. This is a great innovative stout though.
The ale has a moderate low carbonation and a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
Overall a nice smooth stout with a nice twist. Perfect for a cold October night.

Pours a black color. 3/2 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pumpkin, nutmeg, slight all spice, slight ginger, and sweet malt. Fits the style of a Pumpkin Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, sweet malt, roasted malt, and hint of hop. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, body, and blend.

22oz bottle poured into a goblet glass. It has a black as night body with no head to it. The smell is of chocolate, pumpkin and a hint of cinnamon. The taste has a roasty chocolaty taste up front then a little pumpkin and cinnamon come in near the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a really good version of a pumpkin and stout.

This is superb. Elysian does pumpkin better than any brewery I've come across. This has a rich thick head sitting on a clear but opaquely dark brown liquid. Lots of lace and good retention. Superior aromatics bring copious amounts of chocolate and coffee as well as a thick slice of pie topped with cinnamon. The taste is much the same. It's like drinking pie and mocha together. The finish brings a graham cracker crust and earthy hop bitterness that evokes a rich cup of coffee. Not an sweet beer overall and highly sessionable. Feel is perfectly weighted with a light supple caressing of the mouth and tongue. Smoothly carbonated with just enough liveliness. This drinks like a dry Irish stout. Great beer and one to seek out often.
