Very dark brown, near black color. A thick fluffy tan head that left a lot of sticky lace.
Aroma of roasted malt and grain.
Chocolate, oatmeal taste. A hint of citrus.
Heavier-bodied beer

At 8.1% abv, I'd call this an imperial stout. Medium-low lacing and carbonation, but it has been sitting in my cellar for about a year.

It's quite dry, with some smokey aromas and roasted oat flavors. Not sweet, not particularly bitter, and you can definitely taste and feel more alcohol burn then you would expect from something of this abv.

Myself, I like stouts that are heavy and sweet, or light and dry. This one is heavy and dry, and it's not exactly my cup of tea. I would say anyone who is a fan of classic English stouts but wants them with a little more punch would be a big fan.

Cool beer labels of the fantasy path are far too rare! We dig this dragon, precious!
Poured into a pint glass, after enjoying a good swim, and lounging in a steam room.

Black with a tan head, thins out quick yet lingers. Nice lacing.
Smells of malty chocolate.
Strong, bitter Oatmeal, faint chocolate, with a sneaky, tangy aftertaste, otherwise nigh Imperial caliber Stout.

It reminds me of an Obsidian Stout, turned busy; added Oatmeal and some sharp, tangy citrus fruits. A rather bold choice, pulled off! Cheers!

Pours a dark coffee color with a very thick head for a stout. The head last for about 10 minutes.Smells deep and malty. It tastes VERY rich and complex. It is complimented by more carbonation than other stouts I've enjoyed

Pint Glass during happy hour at the brewpub in Tangletown/ Greenlake, Seattle on Monday after New Year
dark, big foam, slowly disappears
fragrant stout aroma
low bitterness, some sweet taste
long finish, bitter aftertaste
very good beer, can be repeat, but not something to look forward to

The beer is black with a nice foamy tan head. Smells like chocolate and roasted malts with a hing of char. Tastes similar to how it smells. A strong roasted flavor with a touch of char that leaves a bitterness. The beer goes down smooth.

Bomber from Vons for $7.99. Big fan of Elysian and wanted to try it.

L: Beautiful. Looks like a stout. Thin lacing, but there. Could use more head. Almost one finger.

S: Vanilla, milk chocolate, roasted malt, oatmeal, and dark dried fruit, in that order. Again, beautiful.

T: Sour like a Cabernet Sauvignon, the charcoaly flavor strikes immediately, initially filling with soft, smooth bready oats before drying out into toasty rye/barley crust mixed with dark chocolate and roasted coffee with a mocha finish. Excellent.

F: Surprisingly thin, probably because of a lower sugar content than most American stouts. Definitely wasn't over sweetened, which I appreciate.

O: An awesome brew from some brilliant artists. Cheers!

Pours a dark brown color with honey edges and a thin layer of head. The nose is more smokey than roasty. The body is definitely thin for such a big stout. The roast is lighter than some basic stouts. Also, there is an odd perfumey note in the flavor.

Dark and velvety, head is a little too frothy. Aroma wafts from the pour, semi sweet chocolate and roast grains. Taste is smooth and slick, minor bitterness, but mellow, rich flavor. This is really, really good stuff.
