Pours a deep chocolate brown with a creamy dark beige head that left one full ring of dark lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Wow cinnamon and chocolate really jump out at ya in the nose,the cinnamon is spicy and goes well with the chocolate and roasted notes.A nice creamy feel to the beer adds to it's richness and pairs well with the flavors.Mild roast and chocolate that runs into a big dose of spicy sweet cinnamon in the finish.One of the best...if not the best pumpkin beer of any style I have had,Elysian can throw down with some pumpkin beers.

A - Black, tan head has good retention and good lacing.

S - Chocolatey, roasty, touch of cinnamon and pumpkin spices.

T - Takes a turn for the worse here. Touch of roasty chocolate, then it's completely dominated by cinnamon. Tough to get much else out of it, maybe an ambiguous bitterness? Tough to tell if it's bitterness or cinnamon burn.

M - Medium/full body, medium carbonation. Cinnamon burn kills it though.

O - Out of all the recommendations for this beer, I can't believe I never heard anyone remark on the cinnamon bomb this beer is. I barely finished my half of the bottle, and my wife had to drain pour hers. The amount of cinnamon is just rediculous.
