To be honest, I had this last year, couldn't get enough of it, and I've been waiting for it to come back for a year. I actually stalked this beer, and used the beerfinder on Elysian's website to track its arrival in CO.
Poured from a bomber into a mason jar (my wife got the Chimay goblet) kinda cloudy, reddish orange with minimal head. The head never really got going in subsequent pours, either. Good looking beer, all the same. Nose was total pumpkin pie, heavy on the nutmeg, but all the other aromas in place. Flavor was in line with that. Bit of a bitter finish, but only very slight. As it warmed I got more alcohol from the flavor, but it still remained balanced by sweetness. Mouthfeel was a little lacking in carbonation, but nice otherwise.
Overall, best one I've had this year, and the best one I've had overall. Have one more bomber I'm going to keep for a few months and see if it melds together a bit more, but happy to finally enjoy this one again.
