Dark pretty beer that has a promising look during the pour.

The nose is promising as well, not overpowering but does that hey I'm here and I'm going to taste damn good dance in your nose.

Fluffy darker head that slips away and the first swallow is a winner. Makes me think duh, why haven't I tried this before. It's terrible when we missout on tasty beers just because they are easily availible. I'm kicking myself over this one. Wow...tasty and well worth it.

I had this beer on tap at the NW Dinner at Redbones this week. Solid black body with a fluffy tan head that lasted. Malt, oats and a hint of sweetness are the flavors that came through. Well balanced stout as no one flavor pushed through. This beer has a higher ABV so look out. This is the second beer that I have had from Elysian and I am once again very impressed.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Allagash tall snifter glass. Pours almost completely black with just the slightest amouth of light/color coming through while beeing poured, but then solid black in the glass. Toffee colored frothy head with excelent retention! Lacing is super thick and sticky and really fills out the glass.

Aroma consists of mostly chocolate, malts, and slight hops. Can also notice a coffee note...but mostly a semi-sweet aroma.

Pretty good stout! Medium body, smooth/velvety and rich mouthfeel. Lots of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted barley, toasted oats, and slight booze. The warmer it gets, the thicker it feels in the mouth. I've never seen, nor heard of this beer before...and it was just a random pick-up today. I have to say, I'm pretty pleased, and not let down at all.

A-Is a very, very dark cola brown with a short tan head and light bits of lacing,
S-Is a strong nose of coffee and some dark chocolate and a little smoke.
T-Is some smokiness, a bite of bitterness, then the roasted coffee and chocolate at the end.
M-Is sort of thin, much more than I would expect. This is the weakest part of this beer.
D-Is very nice. I expected a higher ABV but at 7% it's low enough to have plenty.

This is a solid beer, easy to drink and enjoyable at that. There are better but many more worse.

Hmmm...my scores turned into straight "4"s but I'm not gonna go back and change any of them. Does that make this an "80%" beer? I don't think so. This is the second time I've had this beer and I was definitely looking forward to having it again. At $5 per bomber, it's not necessarily a bargain but it's still cheap enough that it tempts me up to that "next level." I knew I was gonna love this and, dammit, it satisfies! That's way better than 80%!

This beer is one of those ultra black, oily stouts. The mouthfeel is probably the most extreme trait- this sorta rolls out on your tongue. The flavor itself is bold, malty, chocolatey. Very drinkable- not the strongest stout out there (read: you can easily drink one of these without feeling bombed) but by no means a pushover. This is a solid stout that deserves your attention and will reward you back! Grab this one when you see it and dig in!
