Omen is a delicious combination of darkness, raspberries and the classic flavors and aromas of Belgian yeast.

651 ml. bottle. Vintage 2015. 7.9% ABV per the label.. Pours a medium, tiny bubbled, well retained, light beige, head, with slight lacing, over a clear, slightly red, dark brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is roasted malts with coffee, slight chocolate, very light raspberry, no hops, balance to the malts.....taste is slightly raspberry sweet, with heavily roasted malts with coffee, slight chocolate, finishing mildly hop bitter, balance to the malts......mouth feel, heavy of medium body, light alcohol, sticky, carbonation creates a creamy mouthful. This is a different recipe from the original as shown by the increased ABV. It is not as complex as anticipated, with the relatively dominant roasted malts, relatively hidden yeast contributions, and light additions from the raspberry. It would be better with slightly less highly roasted malts, which would allow a bit more chocolate cocoa notes and less coffee. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

jgb9348 (5321) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Deep dark brown coloured body with a large-bubbled head just showing a touch of deep brown colours. Strong chocolate and spice in the nose with a bit of raspberry and grain, but a lot of roasted malt and a bit of coffee as well. Medium-bodied; Strong roasty flavours with some lactose and coffee noticeable, but a large presence of malt, raspberries and grain. Aftertaste shows some malt and coffee with milk sugars and some cream noticeable, all finishing with some raspberries. Overall, a nicely balanced beer with a good profile and a touch of fruit. This naturally should be classified as a sweet stout, but a good beer, not great and not bad throughout. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, Eye St NW), DC on 25-May-2015 for US$8,99 sampled at home in Washington on 01-June-2015.

stantheman (825) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2015
On tap taster at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A very dark almost black beer with a light tan head and lacing, with a fruity and roasted nose. Fruity for sure, faintly raspberry, malty, low bitterness. More raspberry on the finish. 3.3.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle, shared by phantomhennes on game night. Medium-dark brown, lively tan head that settles into a thick pad. Fresh tart raspberry is very subtle, dark cacao chocolate, mild roast without any ashiness. The raspberry is very genuine and somewhat understated, which serves this beer well. Very tasty.

douglas88 (7797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bomber. Pours a ruddy black color with a medium light brown head. A big chocolate and light berry nose. The flavor is sweet raspberries, coffee, dark chocolates. I’m not getting a ton of Belgian yeast in it. The overall flavor is super sweet berries and light stout flavors. Pretty good.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Black color, compact head. Mild aroma of roasted malts and cardboard. Roasted malt flavor, rather dry, also more body was expected given the high ABV, and once more the raspberries add nothing g good to black beers, as their tartness doesn’t blend with the roasted malts.
Could be an OK beer for somebody, but the result is cacophonous.

August 13th, 2013 - Elysian’s Omen has rolled down the hills from Adelphi, destined for my glass, where it bubbles and froths above, and below sits murkily, dark and black. The smell is eager to express its raspberry notes, enough so to mask the chocolate, and it’s sweet enough that I feel as if I am huffing raspberry jam. The flavor is much like a frambozen, but the aftertaste brings in the kick of a stout at the end - deep, rich and malty. A cool blend, and unpredictable, in by prophets’ standards.
