Purchased a case recently, then poured bottle into a glass. Awesome artwork on the label!

Appearance- Light to medium orange. Moderate carbonation with somewhat thin head.

Smell- Very aromatic and complex. Pumpkin is easily recognized, as well as the wide variety of spices.

Taste- Strong character of pumpkin at first followed by spices. Very much like a pumpkin pie in a bottle. This beer contains 5 spices, the cloves and cinnamon were apparent. The 7lbs of pumpkin brewed per barrel was an evident point as this was much more "pumpkiny" than some other pumpkin ales I tried.

Mouthfeel- Light to moderate but not thin or watery. Very easy drinking ale. Quite agreeable.

Overall- I thought this was a great example of the style and an outstanding seasonal pick. This was my first Elysian brew, and can say they did it right. The 5.9% was decent for the abv. Though a bit pricey, I would definitely buy this great seasonal brew again. If you are not a fan of spice flavors, or just don't like pumpkin pie, I could see why that person would rate lower. But if you like pumpkin, you'd be happy with this pumpkin ale.

*** I re-reviewed this beer after the InBev aquisition. I noticed the abv has been raised to 6.7 %

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 6.7% abv.

Appearance- Pours a dark orange, almost being a burnt brown color. Moderate carbonation.

Smell- Freshly ground pumpkin mask with spice notes of nutmeg and cinnamon dominant. Pumpkin pie like.

Taste- A sweet malt followed up by a pumpkin flavor that is quite real and fresh. The spices come later, and linger in the palate for a good bit. Some bitterness too in the end.

Mouthfeel- Medium heavy in body with active carbonation.

Overall- Just as good as I remembered it to be. The difference being it is now more heavier in body, darker, has higher abv......and....technically a product of AB. Still an out of this world pumpkin ale worthy of being among the top of the style. I'd put it in the top ten of pumpkin ales.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a rich copper/orange color with one finger of head that recedes quickly.

As I pour this beer I can smell pumpkins and spice, it's quite pleasant! It really has a nice pumpkin pie aroma, as well as hints of caramel. Other than that most traditional beer aromas are hidden and/or masked behind the spices.

Flavors follows the nose a bit, there is a bit of malt, a nice balance of spices, pumpkin and just enough hop bitterness to cut through and keep this beer from being too sweet. There is a bit of bready malt and hints of caramel. The finish is a bit thin but pleasant with more spices, hints of pumpkin and a very slight hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium/slightly thick with slightly below average carbonation.

Overall this beer is quite enjoyable to drink, despite the presence of such strong and unique flavors. The pumpkin and spice flavors are very up front, not over-bearing and very balanced. I found this brew quite drinkable and would have it again.

Pours hazy, orange-brown with minimal head. Taste is ginger, white sugar crystals, and nutmeg. Very nice and sweet and clean. Elysian is becoming my favorite brewer of this style and this one is right up there with the best in the style.

Elysian does so many pumpkin beers - Dark o’ the Moon, Great Pumpkin, Punkuccino - and a jillion one-offs, that it’s easy to skip over Night Owl. I hadn’t had a Night Owl bottle for a few years until I picked up an $8 six pack at the grocery yesterday.

Well, what a great beer! Full of pumpkin flavor. Sweet but not too sweet . Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Spices in balance with everything else.

This is not a beer for those who don’t like pumpkin ales. This is not a beer for those who really want a stout, or a coffee ale, or something else. This is a beer for those who enjoy pumpkin flavor in a well made ale. And it’s a terrific bargain.

Purchased from Liquid Solutions or Bottletrek or somewhere in OR and then shared by azagthoth. Possibly the highlight of the night, especially coming off that Sheaf Stout.

Pours a clear-ish orange color, small fluffy white head, not much lacing.

Aroma is spicy and pumpkiny. I catch cinnamon, ginger, and possibly clove. Real pumpkin meat smell, which is a nice change from the usual pumpkin beer.

Flavor is cinnamon, ginger, and clove in the aftertaste. Roasted pumpkin flavor as well. Complex and balanced for sure.

Medium body, medium/low CO2, balanced, very enjoyable.

This beer is a slightly hazed, opaque, ruddy sort of brown. On top grows a light tan head that sets up just over a finger high, displays good retention, and leaves good lacing mostly in patches as the beer falls.
The aroma shows depth and promise, offering all the balance of plenty of pumpkin flesh with moderate spicing at a good level, enough to satisfy without going overboard. There's just a bit of sweetness with a bready back and even a touch of peppery spiciness underneath.
The flavor is nearly as good, just shy of the level the aroma's on. The breadiness takes over a bit, though the spicing certainly isn't lost. There's even a noticeable touch of hops sitting beneath it all. The focus is clearly lots of pumpkin, both meaty and almost nutty.
The medium body supports it all well. It smooth enough with a nippy crispness that doesn't fade. Neither too sweet nor too dry, the feel works well in this beer.

Pours a handsome orange color with plenty of sediment but the head checks out a little soon. Nose is cinammon and nutmeg and pumpkin pie. The flavor is interesting, with pumpkin and spice up front and some funky yeastiness on the back end. Some relatively low bitterness hops and some fruity booziness also appears. Definitely distinctive for me, if not quite my favorite pumpkin of the season.

12 oz bottle poured into Dogfish Head Tulip Pint Glass

Pours a brilliant orange leaving little head and minimal lacing. This beer smells like pumpkin pie. Big allspice and nutmeg on the nose. Taste doesn't quite live up to the smell, but pulls through quite nicely. Mouthfeel is medium. Slight bitterness in the back end. Overall, this is a nice pumpkin beer and probably one of the best examples. I like the new six pack option. Seek out for those who enjoy the style.

S: Cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin and yeast.

T: Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon up front which transitions to a yeasty pumpkin finish.

O: Very drinkable spiced pumpkin ale that is quite yeasty.

I love when the pumpkin beers start slowly dotting the beer aisle at the store to mark the fall season. About 7 or 8 years ago my wife was the catalyst for getting me into pumpkin beers. We would then gather any pumpkin beers from John's Market in Portland and do a tasting of the various offerings of this style. I have to say the more I have Night Owl the more I move it up the list of pumpkin beers. This is a great overall spiced yet balanced pumpkin beer. I still think the Great Pumpkin by Elysian takes no. 1, but this isn't far behind.

Poured into a mug from a 22oz bomber.

A Pours a hazy orangish amber topped off with a white head.

S Smells like pumpkin pie with lots of cinnamon, allspice, and what I think might be cloves.

T The taste follows the nose with lots of cinnamon, allspice, cloves, a hint of ginger and lots of pumpkin. Not overly sweet though, and very drinkable.

M Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall this is another excellent pumpkin beer by Elysian. Almost as good as the Great Pumpkin and better then Dark O the Moon. Plus its easy to find and fairly cheap which combined with the great flavors and easy drinkablity means I will be drinking this one all fall.

Pours a walnut colored body beneath a foamy tan head that quickly dissolves leaving only thin hints of lacing behind.

Generous pumpkin aromas float from the glass with the focus being much more on the pumpkin than the spices. As it warms, the spices really show up featuring cinnamon, clove, and ginger. There is also a nice, sweet malty backbone to this beer as well.

Toasted pumpkin flavor with more cinnamon, clove, and ginger and toasted malt as well. The spices are a bit subtler than the aroma. The flavor is also a touch bready.

Medium in body and carbonation, it is smooth yet flavorful.

All around this is very impressive pumpkin ale with plenty of true to style character. The only room for improvement I see is a bit more pronounced spice in the flavor.

This pumpkin beer features a cooked pumpkin taste as opposed to pumpkin pie taste. The color looks as though someone dropped a pumpkin into the glass/bottle. The smell and taste are consistent with the cooked pumpkin theory. This is one true American style beer picking up.

I got an opportunity to try this at "The Great Pumpkin Debate" in Wilmington, DE this past weekend. First. let me say that I am one that does not like a lot of pumpkin beer. I decided to walk the tables and see if there was one that actual appealed to me.

I came across Elysian Night Owl on the second table and was blown away. This had beautiful clarity and nice carbonation with a gorgeous nose that reminded me of Thanksgiving. I am mostly turned off by these beers because of the over use of spices. The flavors were in perfect harmony! Just the right amout of spice, pumpkin, and cinnamon to keep you wanting more. The carbonation danced on your palate, keeping things lively.

I would definitely recommend this beer if you are leary about pumpkin beers like me. This will be my choice this Halloween!

2016 vintage. Bottled on 7/15/16. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy glowing burnt orange with a light tan head that fades leaving decent retention and lacing. The aromas are very nice. Tons of spices. Lots of cinnamon and ginger. Some clove in the mix. Malts are there. The spice profile is really nice and shines. The flavors seem to follow the nose for the most part. The spice notes are clean and don't overwhelm. The cinnamon and ginger lead the way with some hints of nutmeg. The allspice does its thing. Some caramel in the mix. Malts are there, but don't seem dominant. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is light and thin with active carbonation. It's very smooth and easy to drink.

This is a very nice pumpkin ale. I know it's still summer and pumpkin ales taste better when the leaves are falling, but I've never had this and I wanted to try it relatively fresh. It's very enjoyable and the spice notes are on point. Well done.

The beer pours an amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a bisquity pumpkin scent along with an array of spices; cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.. The taste is good as well. It has a solid grist of pale, crystal, and bisquit malts along with a large pumpkin and spice flavor. It's a smooth drinking beer with little to no pumpkin bitterness. The mouthfeel is great. It is a full bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is a very well done pumpkin beer. Some of these are too malty. Some are too spicey. Some are really dry and pumpkin filled. This is a well rounded, highly drinkable beer.

Very malty aroma. Some brown sugar and slight hint of pumpkin.

Brown colored, clear, think head with lots of persistant lace on the side of the glass.

Really nice pumpkin flavor and spicy. I get cinnamon and I think nutmeg. Nice malty backbone. Hops take a back seat to the spice and pumpkin.

Full bodied, but remarkably refreshing.

Appearance: Mildly hazy burnt orange. Head is white and drops to a wispy cap rather quickly. Some carbonation sneaks through the slightly thicker collar. Loose and barely there.

Smell: Nutmeg buried in the back. Nice compliment of roasted and toasted malts. Some bready sweetness in the back. Nice pumpkin. Squashy, vegetal, earthy, and fresh. The usual spices make an appearance, but it's not the first thing to jump out. Cinnamon and clove in particular. Ginger jumps as the beer warms. Nicely layered.

Taste: Sweet cinnamon spice laced with nutmeg. Big squashy pumpkin flavor is incredibly delicate given how big it is. A big scoop of fresh pumpkin sprinkled with spices. Bready malts balance it out a touch. Some malty sweetness. Nice roasted character in the back, and I swear I can taste the earthy flavor of pumpkin seeds. Vaguely floral at times. Clove and ginger make up a big part of the spice profile as it warms. Falls apart a little when warm, giving the spice more headway. More like a crispy pumpkin cookie.

Mouthfeel: Minimal carbonation. Body runs on the lighter side of medium. Incredibly clean and smooth. So very smooth. Vague notions of creaminess.

Overall: I'll take another x6.

Solid pumpkin mixed in to an easy drinking ale is always a good time. Spices get a little overbearing at times, but it's quickly made up for with another sip of squashy goodness. Each sip makes it better and that's hard to do with the style.

Appearance: Pours a hazy pumpkiny amber color with a thick, foamy head that sticks and laces nicely

Smell: Lots of real pumpkin smell in this one, with the spice elements discreetly in the rear; it's the more subtle pie smells, too, such as brown sugar, mace and allspice; perhaps a touch of nutmeg

Taste: Opens with a solid pumpkin flavor, with the spices arriving by mid-palate, with perhaps just a nuance of chocolate, too; after the swallow, the pumpkin takes on a bit of a gingery flavor

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: A very nice pumpkin, one of the best

Thanks, cannabanaceae, for the opportunity

A- Nice clear dark copper color. Finger width head, with good lacing. Looks good.

S- Great spice smell, creamy pumpkin mixed with a nice dash of nutmeg. This smells very creamy, like a good pumpkin pie should be. There is also a toasty smell that comes from the pumpkin seeds that are used in the brewing process.

T- Nutmeg is very present, at first, then the pumpkin taste comes through with the spices and creaminess. Then the roasted/toasted pumpkin seed taste. Very tasty, nice and hearty. Not too sweet, but also a good amount of savory.

M- Feels good in the mouth like a beer should.

D- Drinks easy and goes well with hearty foods.

Blurry dark orange shade. Husky firm top of light tanned foam sits for a stay before dropping to a solid skim and a firm collar ring. Drippy lacing with a minimal amount sticking; only a few big globs closer to the top.

Aroma is quite nice, very cookie, bakery-like with a snappy cinnamon sprinkled pumpkin pie spice with a slim candied malt undertow. Nice.

Flavor is pretty good, as a steady stream of flavor begins in a pumpkin pie pond and ends in a small lake of Thanksgiving dessert spices. Well rounded pumpkin tone sets the stage with great additional spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to round off little cookie-like delights as it roams around the palate at good length.

Feel is just shy of medium, perhaps a tad thin in the front and middle. Gains a nice firm malting and tender fluffyness as it goes. Finish lingers with a very nicely held spice of pumpkin pie.

Another solid offering from the folks at Elysian, and another big thanks to cvschaller for the many samples! This was a hoot!

Picked up a single of this at my local beer spot. I have heard good things about this brew. Let's hope this lives up to the hype.

Appearance: Pours a nice, dark orange glow. The head is about an inch in thickness, but dissipates pretty quickly. Presents a nice, autumn, evening.

Smell: Presented first is a nice hint of pumpkin-pie like type of aroma. Has notes of some spices like nutmeg, some cinnamon, and maybe a slight hint of ginger. Really enjoyed how this beer's aroma presents itself. Makes me wanna dive in almost immediately.

Taste: Has a nice, sweet texture at first sip. Reminds me of toasted pumpkin-pie with a dash of maple syrup and some brown sugar. The spices compliment the palate overall. There is a subtle hint of hops that give it that sweet texture, but theres a balance of bitterness that really brings this beer together. Something that to me is very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation that lives a nice, dry finish. I actually enjoyed this part and would give it above average. One thing may be a little too dry to the finish.

Overall: Was not disappointed with this brew at all. At first tasting, it was an instant hit with my beer expectations. I was very impressed and the more that I sipped, the more I noticed something different with this brew. It's something that leaves you craving more and if your a fan of pumpkin beers, I strongly recommend this one. Enjoyable to the fullest! Cheers!

On tap at The Institute as part of their "Pumpkin Patch" event...

Darker orange with hints of copper. Decent white head and ok lacing. Smell is of pumpkin pie - spices like nutmeg, clove and cinamon - with a little pumpkin puree thing going on. Tast is very good, as close to pumpkin pie as i have had outside of a ST Pumking. Good body, carbonation does not get in the way, creamy without being sticky or heavy. Very good pumpkin beer, one of the best.
