fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver, as Elysian Slipshot Milk Stout
Black color; the head has short retention. There is a light coffee aroma; it reminds me of the Alpine grolla coffee. The coffee flavor is not pleasant, at least in this light bodied and light souled beer, with dry and weak mouthfeel, some roasted malt, coffee grounds, ordinary bitterness.
Messy.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Dark brown, earthy chocolatey, smooth roastiness, the aroma is actually quite appetizing, with that earthy Victrola coming out quite a bit with its nutty, earthy overtones.

adnielsen (9478) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Foco. Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a cream brown head. Slightly burnt, roasty coffee, a bit grainy, dark milk chocolate, light vanilla, roasty aroma. Milky, fairly sweet, milk chocolate flavor thatís fairly well balanced the bitterness and roastiness of the coffee. Body is a bit thin and the sweetness and bitterness both are a bit over the top, but not bad.
