Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
Pours a dark amber. Pumpkin scent hits your nose and continues through your first sip. A little watery, but a good entry to pumpkin beers.

Elysian Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with a whit head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, and faint coffee. Taste is a very well balanced moderately sweet spiced pumpkin beer. More coffee and smoked malt on flavor than aroma with a cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin flavor that is not a spice bomb like some. Excellent pumpkin beer. One of the best I've had. Would love to try this against Warlock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Elysian The Wise ESB
Rating #1972 2015.09.26 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 3, Beer 73 Draught at Taphouse Grill. Pours a deep golden colour with a foamy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is toffee, honey, toasted barley. Hop presence is significant, giving the bitter character of grassy, earthiness with a hint of toffee honey sweetness. Well balanced, medium bodied ale that is easy to drink.

Elysian Hubris Imperial IPA
Bottle from Boise Co-op. A return to the classic NW IPA. Clear, light amber with a soft, sticky off white head. Resinous hops lead the aroma, some sweet caramel malts underneath. Taste follows with up front hop bitterness, slick, smooth, sweet malts, and then more lingering bitterness. What I remember early IPAs being. Tasty.

Elysian Dragonstooth Stout
Pours pretty much black, thin cappuccino colored head. Lots of char, smoke, leather and roasted fruit on the nose, plum, maybe raisin. This leads to a classic imperial stout taste...wood, burned oak, dark sweetness, roasted nuts, a dash of pepper in the finish. Nice full mouthfeel, creamy with a bite, well masked abv. Good beer.

Elysian Menís Room Original Red
Iíve had this beer probably a dozen or so times over the years, purely out of my joint respect for both beer and the Menís Room program. I donít know why I never rated the beer. Seems like every time I have it, it is poured into plastic at some bar that probably never cleans their lines. Today, I find myself enjoying it under unique circumstances. Not only that, I have a hard time listening to the program now, due to the departure of my favorite cast member. If you ever read this Ben, I miss you buddy, and I hope I get the chance to buy you a beer some day to say thanks for all the laughs over the years. Youíve done the program twice as long as Iíve been legally allowed to drink this beer. This beer is memorable for me because when I am drinking it, there is usually an event that surrounds it. Itís usually quite refreshing on the hot days, but it can be rough on other occasions. A biting nutty malt, and it comes off as boozier than it claims to be. Caramely, but a bit papery as well. On a scale of bad to the best, itís yummy. Now that I finally uploaded a long thought out rating though, I might not see myself getting this much more. Alright beer Iíd say.

Bomber from the Happy Valley (Portland) CostCo. Pours dark translucent gold with a beige head. Aroma is mixed hop - earthy, citrus, pine. Med body at least. Flavor is very hoppy, and the malt renders it less than dry. Itís pretty bitter, and quite hoppy. Heavy duty stuff.

Taste: Orangy, moderately bitter, slightly thin malt base but bit of bread and malts that linger.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.

Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
12-ounce bottles served in a large dimpled mug. I love fall/winter beers. This is one of the few pumpkin beers that actually has pumpkin, and not just the spice. Great dark color, pumpkin spice aroma, and decent alcohol content make this one of the best beers I have had this year. Still a little early in the season for this style, but will definitely continue to buy well into fall/winter.

Sampled on draft at Tapped this beer poured a murky orange-tan color with a large fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and yeasty with a musty note and moderate pineapple and orange. The flavor was yeasty and phenolic with a musty presence followed by elements of peach, citrus, pepper and almost perfume. Long finish that turns a bit dry. Medium body. Interesting.

Malty, piney aroma. Higher alcohol content is apparent but falls short of what I associate with a DIPA. Finish is a little clumsy with the Amarillo outshining the citra a bit. Decent brew, not outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at The Oak. Aroma is pine, flour-y dough, like dank and flowers. Tastes very odd. Herbal and pine hops start off but the finish is astringent and terrible. Not a fan. Old keg maybe?

Elysian Space Dust IPA
650ml bottle from Appalachian Vintners. 6/6/2016 bottle date, so super fresh. Copper orange pour. Off-white head. Aroma has tropical fruit, pineapple, light pine, and light sweet malts. Taste is of sweet tropical fruits, chewy resin, pineapple, light lemon, and some biscuity malts. Medium bodied, the blend is solid. Little alcohol presence. Finishes tangy bittersweet, to the bitter side a touch. Nice effort from a solid brewery. Wish they distributed to the Midwest. 14.2

Elysian Guava Lava
Draft pour pint at Elysian Fields, as part of my taking beers out of rating hiatus series. Pre-game beer before the Mís game. We may have sour beer in our stadium, but no pepper beer yet. Or barrel aged stuff. Just you wait. Golden pour. Active fizz head. Spicy aroma with a balance of malt and hops. Flavor is pepper heat, but comes off as artificial. Odd combo of fruit and spice. Candy like result, with some heat that lingers. Another wacky concoction from Elysian. I do love pepper beers. I canít help but really like this beer. Please do this same exact beer, only more true pepper heat, and I will love it.

Elysian Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale
Growler. Pours slightly hazy golden-amber with a thick eggshell head. Aroma offers citrus, hoppy and malty notes. Flavor delivers plenty of hops and orange character, almost more IPA than PA, while fresh malt plays a supporting role. Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz. Good for taking the edge off a sweltering day - and weíre going to have plenty of those because climate change is REAL!

Centennial and cascade with a malt back bone fill my nose in this hazy orange brew with almost no head. Full body and Sweet malty up front with low carb. The after taste brings in the bitterness with a lingering fresh green grass flavor. There is a slight warmth as well.

Elysian Saison Poivre
Bottle from Total Wine, I think.

Darker-than expected orange pour with a lightly pink-orange tinted head. Nice saison aroma, peppercorns pretty forward, otherwise good dusty elements with modest but not excessive esters. Flavor is a bit sweet, a bit cloying, balanced by the nearly-spicy pepper. Orange. Mouthfeel is thick and not as refreshing as Iíd like. I donít understand why this needed to be brewed at 7%. US brewers need to learn to do saisons at 5% or below. Passable.

Elysian Dragonstooth Stout
8.1%ABV. Imperial stout. Poured out black. 40įSRM. Nose has coffee, black cherries, smoke, coffee, and liniment. Mouthfeel is juicy and watery. Palate has some nice charcoal, smoke and some nice plum preserve roundness. There is some spicy woodsmoke. Floral and light incense. Perfume-like. Some sandalwood in the palate and wormwood in the finish. Still get some nice sweet cherry in the finish. Finish is ume and dry and woody. Overall a very well-provisioned stout with good smoke, dark roasted malt and perfume-like character. Finishes off with some nice fruity character on the palate. Goes on Favorites List !

Elysian The Immortal IPA
6.3%ABV. IPA. Poured out slightly cloudy golden Amber. 8ļSRM. Nose has very ripe pineapple, pear cider, taffy. Pine and light fresh herbs. Mouthfeel is light soap. Palate has malt, but not heavy, might have wanted a slightly more prominent malt body with more biscuit and graham cracker to give the hop flavor more breadth. Hops are herbaceous bitter, pine needles. Finish is medium, strongly bitter with a nice clean fade.

Elysian Vitamin G
On tap @ Elysian Fields. Pours hazy medium golden orange with thin creamy off-white head. Aroma is lightly roasty caramel malt, big juicy hops with heavy (you guessed it) grapefruit notes. Taste is similar - malt is mild but with a pleasant light roast, hops are dominant and overflowing with juicy bitter grapefruit, lemon zest, and grapefruit pith. Lacks the balance (and hops) of say, Grapefruit Sculpin, but tons of rich dank citrusy flavor. Then again, I love grapefruit, so I may be biased. 5.7% abv is pretty low for an IPA as well.
