Mike Likes The Cyclops, Rates a 3.7

Mike on 6.6.2010

Elysian Cyclops Barleywine

Commercial Description: Cyclops is nearly all pale malt, with some crystal and Munich for color, bittered with English Magnum and finished with Northwest Amarillo and Centennial hops.

3.7  Aroma: 6  Appearance: 3  Taste: 8  Palate: 4  Overall: 16

Watch out, this beer goes down real easy.  At 9.85 percent alcohol that's an accomplishment.  Sweet with hints of vanilla, but balanced well with a slight alcohol bite in the finish.  I could drink a lot of this beer.  Better buy it one bottle at a time.
