Elysian Brewing – Blight (Beer #8 of the 12 Beers of the Apocalypse) (2012)

28 Aug

AlexAA: dense copper tone, heavy air with cinnamon and brown sugar 9/10

AlexTM: fully body w/ much depth from the reaches of the Vietnamese cinnamon, almost a fire to the sweetness 8/10

AlexP: Despite this being a cinnamon beer w/ pumpkin, the amount of pumpkins is still sizeable 4/10

AlexO: A heavy dessert feel to this ale – a happy ending to the apocalypse? 90/100

NicAA: Aroma hits big and hearty on the brown sugar, and the sweetness is mixed with cinnamon. Rich honey color with little head. 9/10

NicTM: Matches aroma well; tastes of caramelized brown sugar + cinnamon bite, raisins, maybe molasses. Almost rum-like. Thick, low fizz.9/20

NicP: In a big heavy beer like this not surprisingly the pumpkin gets a bit lost. It’s a light touch, behind the sugar and spice. 1 pumpkin

NicO:This spice/sugar mix make this winter beer,like drinking a fruitcake or Christmas Pudding. I almost expect to find a sixpence in it. 88/100
