4.85/5  rDev +30.4%

A: pours with a medium light body, crimson black in color with a 2 inch thick quickly dissipating khaki head
S: has depth of aromas, the pumpkin spices definitely come out more abundantly with this one, along with some strong roast malt to help with the balance.
T: I like when a beer taste like it smells when its something with a more substantial flavor and complexity, I also like when a beer surprises me with pleasant flavors, which this one does greatly .The taste is spot on with the aromas, pumpkin spiciness with some allspice, nutmeg, cardamom but not overpowering by any means, balanced perfectly by the roasted malts (i'm not a big fan of pumpkin beers either) but then there is an awesomely surprising slight but apparent smokiness!? reminds me of a perfect fall night around a campfire with friends which would be wonderfully glorious while drinking this liquid gold. awesome.
M: same as the "he said" tripel, pleasant, low carbonation medium body.
O.A. definitely like the Baltic porter much more than the tripel in this four pack but like I said, I love the idea of two completely different beers in a single four pack, its like a mini sampler! love it!

Can in teku

A- pours dark cola brown with a nice two finger bone head
S- lots of milk chocolate, sweet malt, cinnamon, pumpkin, chili scents
T- starts with a roasty chocolately malt, cinnamon, sweet pumpkin, lots of smokeyness, dark fruit, earthy, I get some
M- thinner than it looks because it's so dark but very enjoyable
O- impressed with this, it's nice and smokey, which was expected of the style, the pumpkin is not in your face, it takes a back seat to the porter flavors. This is a nice change from your run of the mill pumpkin brown ales, it is complex and delicious.

Had to go back and bump this rating up, this is one of the best pumpkin beer I have ever had. Period

This beer is awesome!

It has a medium/light body with a non-overbearing pumpkin taste, preferable to some of the more mainstream beers with strong, syrupy pumpkin flavors. Followed up by a subtle but crisp spice after taste.

picked this up at a liquor store in the boonies while traveling cross-country, and I'm sad to say I cant find it anywhere else now. Great stuff.

Of the two He Said's this is the one that has the better staying power as a beer you look forward to drinking again. And it'll be the reason I will stockpile the goofy and somewhat expensive 4pack boxes while they are still out there.
Love the color on this beer. Just a hint of that dark roast bitter making it through the spice and sugar. Lots of cinnamon and less clove, good call there guys. Coats the tongue. Goes with food or without, try some to wash down a curry, mmmm.

Served from the can into a globed glass.

A- Poured black with a soapy khaki colored head that left spotted lace.

S- Huge cinnamon, nutmeg roasted malt, coffee, sweet cocoa, and vanilla notes.

T- Big cinnamon, vanilla, roasted malt, cocoa, and a little bit of a slight acidic note. Very clean taste with some light bitterness on the finish. The way the flavors blend together remind me of a really good mexican mocha.

M- Highly carbonated, mostly dry finish, big warming, and lighter bodied than I expected.

O- The pumpkin pie flavors are not quite as well integrated into this beer as the He Said Tripel. However, this is a really delicious porter and I love the way the cinnamon and vanilla flavors blend with more traditional porter characteristics.

A 4 pack of cans released in fall of 2013. 1st appearance of an Elysian brew in GA that I know of...

A - Pitch black, dark brown, TONS of sticky lace and head left all over the glass. Impressive

S - Cinnamon X3! It dominates. Other spices, pumpkin, roasted malts.

T - Pumpkin and spices, roasted malts, delicious combination. Well done!

M - Full bodied, highly carbonated. Creamy. Nice!

O - An excellent brew. I have never had a pumpkin spice porter. Seems natural, since the pumpkin spiced latte is all the rage right now. This is better!
