michaelinwa (629) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Black, moderate head, uninspiring aroma of slightly roasted malt. Flavor is light, very slightly roasted malt, slight tartness, mild bitterness. Raspberry is very far in the background. Mouthfeel is thin and the finish is mild bitterness and sour. Serious lack of depth or complexity here. This is a really confused beer that doesn’t come close to hitting the target as ether a stout, a Belgian ale, or a fruit beer. Could have been really interesting, but the brewer dropped the ball.

pictoman (737) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
Poured from the tap. Black with minimal beige head. Mild roast malt, very subtle raspberry sweetness, a little spicy Belgian yeast at the end. A little light.

stantheman (723) - 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 (7622) - 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 (6939) - 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.

fiulijn (16175) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
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.

GarrettB (1180) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2015
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.

A wild variety of styles combine in this beer. Stout, Belgian, and fruit beer.

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma with light hints of raspberry and Belgian yeast. Pours black with one finger of light brown head with excellent retention and decent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavor and a slight hint of Belgian yeast. Finishes smooth with a bit of raspberry sweetness before the roasted malt takes over again in the end and lingers on the palate. Pretty good, but the other flavors are overwhelmed by the roastiness of the beer.

Appearance: Pours jet black. Medium grey head. Lasting. Aroma is mild yeast, plum, raisin, slight raspberry. Taste: raspberry is prevalent in taste, even though faint in nose. somewhat astringent. Aftertaste has some coffee, ash. Feel: Medium low carbonation. Interesting, but not stellar.
