jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2017
Pours an opaque black with cola highlights. Has a khaki head with decent lacing. Aroma of coffee and chocolate milk with chocolate syrup. Taste has a bit of sweetness with chocolate, nutty coffee and ends with some roastiness. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium/full body and medium carbonation. Nothing too complex but very solid and enjoyable flavors.

Pours thick black with thin head. Aroma is espresso and roast. Taste is instantly sweet caramel and raisin, warming to coffee and a roast finish. A good sweet stout.

nearbeer (5714) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2018
12 oz. bottled 01/11/2018. Deep chocolate color with a lasting creamy film on top. Rich espresso with cream, cocoa and a touch of caramel in the aroma. Flavors of espresso with sour cream, berry, graham cracker and bittersweet baker's chocolate. A nice little touch of resin develops in the long finish. Almost medium bodied with medium carbonation and a drinkable balance overall for a dessert stout.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8362) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2018
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy dark tan head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry and roasty with notes of cola, brewed coffee and floral hops. The flavor was bitter, dryish and roasty with coffee, vanilla and floral hops; Long finish. Medium bodied and creamy. Ok.

Tap at TNT. Did not know it was Elysian, or I would not have bought it. Nose if coffee, cream. Lightly sweet lactose flavor, coffee, cocoa. A bit think and light, slightly spicy finish. Decent.

erikaraeb (326) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2017
Coffee and chocolate like a typical stout, but well-balanced flavors with some cola qualities. Bod is creamy, but somewhat watery and medium-lite in consistency, though this may be expected from the lower abv. Very "drinkable" for a stout.

ironcontra (494) - ATL, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2017
tap. coffee, cocacola, chocolate, not over-the-top sweet which I respect, nice thick mf with just a bit of hop tartness there to round it out

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2017
bottle. Near black with one finger head. Medium malt body, lots of roast. Rather sweet. Espresso adds substantial coffee flavor. Smooth lactose.

3.8
Dogbrick (14389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Sample at Daily Growler UA. The beer pours black with some brown around the edges, and a medium tan head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lace. Aroma of coffee, roast malt and chocolate. Light to medium body with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 Such a smooth, creamy sipping experience. Would almost forget it was a beer if I wasn't drinking it out of the bottle! Coffee notes are solid and strong but not overpowering. A truly enjoyable drink.
