P:Poured from bottle into pint glass. Good color of green on label, features George Segal statue-like man ruining prehistoric calendar. Quote on label, "Whatsoever one soweth, that shall they also reap" suggests man on label will himself be toppled and crushed by falling monolith.

A: Amber color, moderate lacing.

S: Orange tootsie roll.

T: An intersection brew: grainy angle piercing creamy cloud. Wish I knew how to describe "gainy angle" better but there it is.

Notes: Favorite Empyrean so far, now will seek it out on tap.

Domino Effect pours a cloudy creamy golden color, with a good lacing head. There is a creamy pale and malty aroma. The taste is very rich and creamy, good malt base, but still a nice mellow hop flavor. Good full flavor, good full body, very complete beer. Overall for a cream ale, its very full and flavorful.

Sampled on 10/16/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a brandy snifter glass that is actually from the Empyrean Brewery.

Pours a darker burnt-orange with a 1+-finger whitish foamy head. Lacing was seen with each sip and some small streaming bubbles were rising just under the head. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of malt with a hint of citrus, like orange zest. The taste was very pleasing with just a touch of that orange zest coming through with grain. Very smooth and easy to drink. The local brewery that is just a hour to the west makes some very good brews. Overall, very pleased with this one

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

This beer has a deep cinnamon-amber body, hazy and unfiltered. A foamy cream colored head recedes to a chunky, bubbly film. Nice thick rings of lacing stripe the glass. The aroma is malty, and somewhat citric, with some orange zest hidden in there. A touch of faded hops fill out the profile. The taste is where it's at. That orange zest note filters into a layer of surprise over sweet malts and a woody, pine finish. Mouthfeel is Medium to light and very friendly.

Overall, I'm probably going to have to revisit this one. It's a great session beer with taste and seasonal ambition.
