3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted in 2006. Pretty amazing brew. In the base you’re basically drinking Dragonstooth, and then you get a blast of dark cocoa, milk chocolate, and what seems to be an extra little kick of coffee notes. Pours a dark black, nice big brown head. Aroma’s are roasty malts, coffee, and cocoa. Super goodness here...hope to try it again someday!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tangletown...tapped yesterday. Only 3 barrels brewed. Very dark cloudy brown with a big creamy brown head. Very sweet chocolaty and malty aroma, does not smell or taste too alcoholic. This is a very sweet stout, but not over the top. They put french silk chocolate in the brew and you can definitely tell...tastes like you just sucked on a Hershey’s kiss. An awesome silky smooth texture. Quite tasty, good experiment.
Also, found out Elysian will be building a huge brew pub down by Qwest Field sometime in the future...400 capacity + street vending on game days.
