Is this a stout? Yes it is, and boy is it one. I can't think of any other way to put it. Poured it into a pint glass and was rewarded with a rich cola-colored head, a rich dark brown body, and the dark roasted malt characteristics of a stout. By itself, a wonderful drink, and just as well made for a good black-and-tan, if that's your taste.

Smells of malted mocha americano with just a hint, a stray tendril of Borkum Riff from a day or two past.

Opaque brown in color with a sludgy, chunky, french press coffee look to the heterogenous mix. Head is small but thick and squat, with the tan color pocked by brown gobs of sediment and sludge clinging to the carbonated froth and held aloft like raindrops ready to fall from the clouds.

In the onset, caramel and nougat are the big time players, and stand alone, the quality of these two basic flavors, and the easy satisfaction of them would already make this beer a winner. I feel like Ron Popeil when I say "wait, there's more." I suppose a "set it and forget it" could be in order as well, but do what you will. Somewhere mid swallow, espresso and the darkest of German chocolate gives closure to the satisfying sweetness that preceded. Coupled with an inexcapable whiff of the aforementioned smell, it makes for the best recent sensory experience for this BA. Ever drink a cup of java at a bakery while they're making donuts? It's not altogether different.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly lush and pillowy, giving purpose and life to the oily flat slick to which I erroneously feared this stout would succumb. On the pour this drooped like a Dali pocketwatch, but in the cheeks and jowls it dances like a Rockette. Covered in caramel, dark chocolate, coffee feans and whipped cream as it were. Now there's a thought...

A - This beer poured a dark brown, almost black, color which produced a fluffy brown head that produced great lace and wonderful retention

S - The aromas that were produced were a wonderful combination of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee beans, oats, and vanilla beans

T - The taste of this Stout was pretty perfect, the roasted dark malts, smooth oats, bitter chocolate, ground coffee beans, and vanilla was perfectly blended

M - The mouthfeel on this beer is exactly how I like my Stouts, thick, creamy, smooth, and slight carbonation

D - This was an exceptional Stout by Elysian, everything was there, and I can wait to try more of their beers

Roasted oaty maltiness with a dash of coffee flavors to balance it all out. One of the easiest drinking stouts I've ever had, a guy could easily drink two or three 22 oz bottles and not realize it until the alcohol hit. Not that I'd know anything about that...
