From bottle purchased October 2012. Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma is raspberry jam, prune juice, chocolate, and light yeast. Taste is of a raspberry dark chocolate candy with some nice yeast notes. Finishes with the jam note and a little alcohol kick.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Nearly black, large frothy beige head nice lacing.   Pale roastiness with a slight fruity tinge to it.   Hard to nail down, other than to say it has a fruity sweetness on top of the soft roasted malts.   Smooth on the tongue, moderate roast, slight berries, not as fruity as I thought for a "fruit beer".   However, while it feels fairly dark like an Imperial Porter or Stout, it does have a fruity aspect that most donít have.   Sweet roasted malts, but also fruity/berryish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Clean finish.   Seems like a very good fruity Stout.   Best of both worlds, biting roasted malt background and sweet fruity forefront.   Smooth, roasty, malty, but also has a slight fruitiness to it.   More of a Stout than a Fruit Beer, but regardless its tasty!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Sweet berry like finish, along with a strong roastiness.   One of the better Apocalyptic releases from Elysian.   Fruity stout for teh win!

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2013
THOUGHTS: The taste was delightful, but something seemed way off. Not nearly as good as I thought itíd be. The Belgian yeast seemed to dominate not compliment the other aroma. Some raspberry finally broke through at the very end. Toward the end the aroma improved a little and the flavor faltered. But both occurred a little too late to effect the scoring. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was basically black in the glass with an average tan head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy roasted and burnt malts; heavy to harsh spicy yeast; lighter dusty and doughy yeast (blocking a lot of the raspberry); and raspberry. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet and moderately bitter with a little longer than average duration. There was dark chocolate, roasted malt, dark coffee, raspberry, raspberry chocolate, spicy yeast, chocolate syrup, coffee, milk chocolate and dusty yeast. The medium body was a little oily and then dry with fizzy carbonation and a metallic and slightly alcoholic finish.

From tap at City Tap House. Pours pitch black with a small chocolate brown head. Aroma is fruity; raspberries, roasted malty too. Smooth raspberry fruity to a dark roasted malty base. Smooth and lingering dark malty with a light citric raspberry note.

Got a chance to try this entry into the apocalypse series last fall. Great take on a fruit stout

Bottle from ABC Beer Co. I think I drank it last Friday (3/29) in the apartment, shared with Erica. Pours black. Thin- to medium-body, some roasty/toasty notes and a little bit of fruit. To be honest Iím not 100pc sure I would have noticed the raspberry if I hadnít read the label, but thatís probably my own fault. Anyway, I liked that it was subtle.

Smells modestly of dark chocolate and a tinge of raspberry. Tate is basically the same. Meh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
