What the brewers say

“A collaboration with Elysian Brewing, He Said is a Baltic-style porter brewed with pumpkin, caraway, and cinnamon.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pumpkin and caramel malt sweetness work nicely with cinnamon and chocolate notes. Nice pumpkin-spice character and nice roasty and coffee flavor.”

Flavor: “Caramel malt sweetness up front coupled with notes of brown sugar blend nicely with cinnamon and nutmeg spices and coffee-like roasted malt notes. Milk chocolate, vanilla, roast, and coffee help to enhance the beer and are not overpowering. Finish is mostly balanced, thanks to roasted malt and spices. Nice clean finish with some warmth.”

Overall: “A good example of a dark pumpkin beer, this beer displays great execution with a variety of complex flavors, including pumpkin-pie spices, roasted-malt character, and caramel-malt sweetness. Chocolate works great with caramel and pumpkin, all enhanced by the spice profile of cinnamon and nutmeg. Seek this one out if you like porters, pumpkin beers, or well-executed beers in general.”
