Elysian Night Owl is a solid, copper ale with a few tiny particles and a thick, yellowish foam that lasts all night and leaves thick lacing on the glass. It has a very spicy aroma with lots of nutmeg, cinnamon and probably pumpkin is the nose. There's a sweet, brown sugar type of smell. It's incredibly soft and smooth. It's full bodied and it kind of leaves the mouth grudgingly. Afterwords, my tongue feels kind of grainy, but it's very silky while the beer is still in my mouth. Tart, caramelly malt with some medicinal hops and pumpkin pie spices all are tied up pretty evenly to make a well balanced flavor. At the finish, there's a sort of green apple sourness. Some parts of the flavor seem Belgian to me, but I can't narrow down why. This is a pretty interesting beer that's difficult to pin down stylistically. It's here to deliver pumpkin and spice and it does so. This beer is filling. Drinking this bottle feels like eating a loaf of bread.
