Elysian. My god, you guys have done it again.

This is my 2nd time having this beer. Smells like a stout. Tastes like a big, beautiful, beer latte. Excellent creamy mouthfeel, goes down really smooth. This is now officially one of my favorite dark beers.

Bomber into traditional English stout glass. Perfect color, decent head and left some decorative lace. Aroma was a sweet, espresso. Taste was perfectly balanced. Chocolate and coffee notes. Bitterness on the back end but not overpowering. Medium+ viscosity. Wonderful aftertaste. This is one rock solid, sweet stout! I'm sure if I was an espresso drinker, I would appreciate it even further. Good stuff!

An impressive beer delivering exactly what it says it does. I actually found myself trying to taste this beer in different ways, from chewing, to popping a quick shot. Everytime fitting some new level of flavor. Espresso? It's there! Milk Stout? Absolutely! This beer followed up in that exact order too with impressive notes of coffee and a creamy finish you would think this beer was made by Starbucks themselves! What a great brew!

On tap at Elysian Fields in Seattle. Pours black, black, black with a nice espresso colored creamy head. Smells of strong espresso/earthy coffee and big sweet chocolate. Flavor follows with a full on mocha bomb, chocolate-espresso-chocolate-espresso, with a nice earthy bitter finish from the roasty coffee that melds nicely with the lactose and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel, and goes down like velvet. One of the best I have had of the style--did this not turn out as well in the bottle?

I like this style alot and I have high hopes for it, here goes..
Pours a dark milk chocolate color, tan ring around the edge, with a nice head that lasts a bit.

Smell is abundant in roasted coffee and chocolate flavors, dark barley, bakers cocoa, char, you name it, it smells like a good Imperial stout.

Taste is the same, very velvety, with a smooth robust profile that fits the category nicely.

Feel is spot on, can't find any complaints. Perfect carb, nice balance.

This is amazing, this brewery keeps on surprising me.
