COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From Barrel to bottle, Elysium III has evolved in the company of its Spanish sherry and Scottish malt whisky predecessors.

The all-powerful Imperial Stout, comprising of an impressive eleven malts, is mellowed by the dried fruit and subtle richness of the sherry barrels. Cherry bark, coffee and wine-like tannings give way to red grapes, oak and charred aromas.

thmsboyd (224) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2018
330mL bottle no. 279, gale no. 25941, BBE: July 2017. Served in a snifter @ 18ºC. Pours a thick black body with a reddish hue and small, burnt sienna head that quickly recedes to a thin crown. Fairly intense nose with sour, sweet and fruit notes apparent. Chocolate-covered cranberries, Christmas cake, wood and a touch of floral character. Violets, wine notes, slightly earthy, iron and obvious acidity. To taste: very dry, tannic and bitter, with a heavy dose of tart berry fruits. Full, thick and oily, with medium to low carbonation and a light astringency in the finish. There's so much going on here, it takes a while to decipher. Certainly interesting, but not altogether coherent.

Heidbummer (1166) - SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Pours deepest brown, thin coffee crema head. Big aroma of prunes, coffee, roasted malt, hint of sherry vinegar. Quite well carbonated for an impy stout, which counters the initial big sweet mouthfeel. The citric, fortified wine taste almost takes it in a barley wine / sour direction. It’s complex and interesting, and not typical for the style.

zimbo (1005) - SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle #570 Great looking pour. Rich bright glossy caramel coloured head. Cream rich body with depth and grip. Cherry, chocolate and red wine within the stout concentration. Nice estry end and lengthy restrained sweetness. In terms of quality the III effortlessly beats the other variations of this beer into mesdy pulps. Very nice.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Inky black with a thin tan head. It has rich, sweet red fruit and chocolate flavour with oak, vanilla and spicy, warming liquorice and milk chocolate on the smooth, creamy finish. Very good.
