Elysian's "Dark O'The Moon" Pumpkin Stout @ 5.6% , from a 650 ml bottle , that took a long time to arrive here in BC
A-pours a very dark brown with a small tan head which quickly dissapates leaving minimal lace ring along my stein
S-lots of pumpkin pie spices (cinnammon , nutmeg , allspice) some coffee and chocolate
T-has a sweet cinammon start and a slight bitter chocolate finish
MF-medium/full body , medium carbonation , so smooth and tasty
Ov-my new favourite for 2012 Pumpkin beers/ale , if you like Pumpkin Beers like me it's worth the $10.99 price for a bomber , just wish it was as available as "Night Owl"

Cheers LampertLand

Love at first sip--an absolute explosion of sweet pumpkin, savory spice, and bitter dark chocolate. I've tried a lot of different pumpkin beers this season (and several others from Elysian) and this is the one I was looking for. The feel is thick without being syrupy, the carbonation is pleasing, and the color is a deep dark autumnal red-brown. After the first few sips the malt and cinnamon dominate the palette until the beer warms up and the pumpkin shines through once more. Great ride and a great finish. Looking forward to having this again next year.

Had this on tap at the SPTR Pumpkin Fest.

Appearance: very dark colors with slight orange coming through but you need to look closely to see it. Gorgeous pour and a good amount of head that was a toffee color.

Smell: Absolutely no smell of pumpkin, instead you get traditional stout fragrances: chocolate, malt, bit of caramel.

Taste: Well here is the problem. It doesn't take like pumpkin at all. I made sure to cleanse my pallet before I drank it and sorry no pumpkin. HOWEVER, when you consider it as a stout holy hell its fantastic. You get very complex tastes of coffee, caramel, malt and only in the after taste (when I was half way done) did I get the slightest hint of pumpkin.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and sweet, with little carbonation.

Drinkability: This is odd because as a stout I think its a fantastic beer. As a pumpkin beer I can't recommend it because it doesn't taste like one. However I can't deny the complexity and just overall great quality of such a stout that I could drink all night.
