ben4321 (3765) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Location: Draft at Iron Monkey, 6/28/12

Aroma: The nose is pretty heavy on the dry roasted coffee malts, with little else present
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with medium sized beige head, and some lacing
Flavor: The taste is pretty much the same as the nose, pretty much all unsweetened coffee
Palate: This one is quite smooth, with a light-medium body, and a fairly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a good (if maybe a little bit one-dimensional) porter. It felt a lot like a coffee stout to me, and the coffee was pretty much all I got out of this one. Still though, I enjoyed it. Elysian certainly makes some nice beers, and this fits that category.

GT2 (8184) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. The pour is clear deep ruby looking near black in the glass with a medium, tan head leaving impressive sticky, webby lace. Nose is savory with small beef broth, heavy chocolate milk. Nothing too obvious but certainly not bad. Taste is richer than expected for 5.4% with chocolate ice cream and vanilla along with some creamy slickness in the finish like cream topped real yogurt. Thin palate overall.

I think it’s time Elysian hired a new graphic designer.

Draught at St. Augustine, Vancouver
Black color; creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, some yeast. The mouthfeel is quite smooth, with strong flavor of heavily roasted malts, but also a delicate fruity vein to provide some balance and complexity; the bitterness is quite strong, suspected mostly from the roasted malt; the late final gets a bit ashy.
Pleasant.

Dark opaque black color, steady beige head, lots of lace. Coffeish, toasted aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Smooth palate. Sweetish milk chocolaty flavor, lingering roasted coffee in the aftertaste. Well-brewed porter.
