Elysian Brewing Company The Fix

What the brewers say

“Dark, rich, and roasty with Stumptown coffee and aged on cocoa nibs sourced by Theo Chocolate, this stout is complex and full of your favorite dark matter.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Intense dark roast coffee first, followed quickly by chocolate with roasted malt and spicy alcohol. The smoky burn is both intriguing and threatening.”

Flavor: “Mocha smooth cold extracted coffee with a shot of chocolate syrup. Sweet without being cloying. Coffee and chocolate are strong but balanced by big roasted malt rich malt. Moderately sweet up front fades into a bracing bitterness with a hint of acidity. Moderate alcohol flavor adds richness and complexity.”

Overall: “Well-balanced coffee stout with a somewhat dry finish that makes this beer very drinkable. The chocolate provides the background for the balance between coffee and roast malt. Coffee and chocolate are dominant without being overpowering. Really tasty.”
