Light and tasty, very easy drinking for a porter. Dark brown with a small head. Nice malty aroma with some caramel and chocolate. Flavor follows suit. Almost a lawn mower porter.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2012 Draft at the Khyber. Poured a very dark red brown that was opaque except under bright light. Frothy tan head. Nice dark malt character without being overly sweet. Dark chocolate. Charcoal. Surprisingly creamy texture though there are some nice dark pops on the tongue at the finish.

650ml bomber pours a dark brown almost black color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some good lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with chocolate and coffee and a hint of smoke. Taste is roasted grain and hop bitterness with hints of coffee and a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some modest carbonation. A little on the bitter side for the style, but still quite a good brew which I thoroughly enjoyed tasting.

Draft at the brewpub in Seattle. Pours a very dark brown color that’s completely opaque with a two finger light beige head that very slowly fades into a thick lasting ring.  Streaks and spots of lace left behind. Slightly smokey, deeply roasted dark malt aroma with hints of sweeter malts for balance.  Coffee bean, dark chocolate, coffee bean, smoked meats and oatmeal countered by sweeter chocolate, toffee and caramel.  I’m picking up some faint earthy hops as well. Lighter bodied than expected with a slightly smokey flavor.  Decent roasted malt presence with dark chocolate and coffee bean along with toffee and oatmeal.   Sweet and robust notes balancing each other out with some earthy piny hops toward the finish.  Pretty tasty but a bit light for my preference.

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.
