Is this a re-release? Screen printed bottle from Costco. Opaque black body, nice creamy almond colored head, fades quick to a skiff, nice creamy lacing. Aroma smells of the first snow (metal) mostly, with coffee, fruit, and brown sugar. Taste is roasty coffee, sweet metally, and tart berries, with some cocoa and coffee finish. Palate is a bit light for style, but not thin. Carbonation nicely subdued and soft. Finish is almost dry, in spite of slightly sweet mid-palate. I thought the metally taste would be a problem, but itís not really, though I usually consider that a flaw.

2015.03.29 - Elysian Omen Raspberry Stout - on tap at Always Ron's. No long review. This is right down the middle for me. Not bad not great. The raspberry is a bit perfumy at first but as I work my way through the beer it gets to be better balanced. Does what it says on the tin. I can imagine raspberry stout being done better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at the Super Bowl Viewing and Beer tasting on 02/01/2015. The beer is a dark brownish-black color with a touch of ruby around the edges. Medium khaki head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and mild raspberry. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, sweet chocolate and raspberries. The finish is malty up front with a subtle berry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with big, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some light raspberries, hints of spices, some notes of chocolate. Flavor the same with a decent and weird blend. Average texture. A sort of weird beer.

Pleasent dark black color with a tinge of blood red through light. Nice head. The head lacks the sweet raspberry taste, but it is appearent throughout. There are hints of chocolate, raspberry and espresso, creating a pleasent raspberry mocha taste. The flavor lasts a long time in your mouth. This is also a much lighter stout compared to the other one Iíve had, but I donít think thatís a bad thing. Even though thickness is a comman characteristc in stouts, itís nice to get one that isnít too heavy.

Bottle gift from SJ. This brew was interesting. Notes of chocolate, rasberry, earth, bread and roast. Sometimes it tasted very odd, but I liked it.

October edition, thought I coulda sworn the October release was supposed to be a sour.... Pours dark brown on black with a confluent thick sheet of tan foam. Smells of chocolate, black olives, some raspberry mash, soil and a bit of coffee grounds. Flavor is sweet and reminds me up front of a black saison with artificial raspberry flavors. Some coffee, cocoa nib, a bit of sweet yeast esters. Medium bodied with small, loosely gathered carbonation. This is one of the lesser apocalyptic productions. Serving type: bottle 10-25-2012
