I tried Elysian Punkuccino for the first time a few weeks back and it was one of the better pumpkin beers I've had...nice mixture of flavors with the pumpkin and the cappucino, and there was a nice cinnamon presence. It's lower ABV (5%, I think?), but it was absolutely delicious.
The bartender (I was at Elysian Bar in Seattle when I tried it) said they'd only released it a few days earlier, so I'm assuming it hasn't made its way out east just yet (?).
"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."
