    Pours out dark orange copper color. Has mild spice aroma, just above average for mouthfeel. Spices are well balanced with no notes of hop. Over all a okay pumpkin 🎃 beer.

    imperial .. . pours a deep amber orange .. mild but sturdy foam .. . light mouth .. . the spice seems balanced, mild flavour of thanksgiving .. . Authorities say the phony Pope can be recognized by his high-top sneakers and incredibly foul mouth.

    Wow - blown away by this. Bottle pour is a hazy orange with a thin white head. Tons of brown sugar and molasses on the nose. Massively thick mouthfeel with great carbonation - a really nice brew to drink. Flavors of baked and pureed pumpkin, allspice, and nutmeg. This is one of the best pumpkin beers around. Less sweet than Pumking, but more forward of a pumpkin flavor.

    another incredible pumpkin beer from Elysian, sure seems like a style they own. lots of spice and natural (roasted) pumpkin in the aroma and flavor. it beats night owl with a creamy bigger mouthfeel, but then you can taste the 8% a little more than you'd prefer. a toss up between the two, but they are the 2nd and 3rd best pumpkin beers out there. head and shoulders above the competition, including Pumking.
