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.

While Elysian hasn’t impressed me much in the past, I was pleasantly surprised by this.  Deep and Dark, the beer pours a deep black with little to no head.  Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, and some smokey malts.  Flavor is great.  A smooth balance of pumpkin, baking spice, and a lingering smokiness form the patent malt.  The flavors pass back and forth playing a perfect balance.  The mouthfeel is spot on, smooth and slick, but not oily. 

Serving type: on-tap
