A smooth and sturdy stout, made with 10% rolled oats, roasted barley and chocolate malt. The name is referential to the founders of Thebes, warriors who sprang from the earth when the teeth of a slain dragon were sown by Cadmus. Bittered with Chinook; finished with Cascade and Columbus hops.

Dark brown/black body, creamy brown head. Aroma has roasted malts, blah blah blah. Itís a nice aroma for an imperial stout to have. Nice creamy thick body. Pretty basic but luscious imperial stout flavors. Subtle piney hop hints similar to original Dark Lord, Batch 7000 and Smuttynose. Elysian seems to put together some good stuff.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Poured black with a gold rim and thin tan head. The aroma was of sweet coffee and roasted malt. In the background laid some chocolate. The flavor however started with chocolate. Coffee was found in the middle and the finish was mostly roasted malt. Sweet middle and a medium body.

Bottle. Deep dark black with a thin mocha head. Inky aroma - citrus hops, chocolate chalkiness, and green pine. Big, chewy, and oily body. Lots of alcohol, green resiny hops, toffee, and breadiness. Sharp, pleasant mouthfeel.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Bomber. Pours an opaque black with a huge and lacy brown head. Aroma of molasses, coffee and nuts. Full, oily body with minimal carbonation. The first taste is sweet, but the bitterness creeps up on you bit by bit... sort of like my ex. Plenty of flavor with molasses, coffee, chocolate, smoke, vanilla, figs, nuts. Great stuff!

jaymobrown (1693) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2006
Super dark. When poured it had a really nice super-big chocolate head. Chocolate flavor with some roasted nut hints. Sort of bitter actually; mostly in the end. Milky texture with malt, caramel. More of a bright hoppy nose. Really nice. If itís on the shelf and you havenít had check it out. Good value for the price.

A dark black appearance with a beige head. The aroma is roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. The beer is quite bitter with loads of coffee flavor present. A medium body and a slightly oily mouthfeel. A nice one!

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- my bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size light-brown head -- nice! Aroma of dark malt, chocolate, some roastiness, yeast and hops -- smells great. Flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, nuts and some coffee with a nice dry bitterness in the finish -- wow! Medium to full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. This is a fantastic Stout!

Bottle shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, courtesy of Blankboy. Lovely roast aroma - rich chocolate. Great pitch black pour, murky dark brown chocolate head. Wonderful taste - so rich - chocolate, light hops in middle, long roast bitter linger at end. Silky thick mouthfeel. Excellent.
