Pours deep red with a small off white head.

Smell is slight seawater and pleasantly tart.

Taste is tangy and salty, lots of brine comes out, peachy and raspberry tartness, flavors intensify when swallowed.

Interesting beer, but not my thing. Some people seem to like it, but it’s way too salty for me.

Appearacne pours a dark brown color supporting a easily dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell is slightly sour, roasted malty and maybe a little sea air. Taste has an upfront sour hit reminding me of a Belgian sour, roasted malt in the back with low hops. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation. Not what I expected from this ale, although I really didn't know what to expect.

Batch 1: 2013

It's dark, near black with just a central cap and ring of tan foam. Smells like cocoa, leather, salt, some vinegar, some mteal. Taste is metal, ocean, sour cherries, soil, pork meat, some cocoa and coffee. The flavor was initially more shocking than as it has warmed more and become a interesting beer with some unexpected components. Full bodied with moderate carb and an off dry finish. I'm on the fence as to whether I actually like this beer vs am just intrigued by this beer...

Murky brown pour, small receding head, aroma of barnyard funk, brine, cacao, flavor is extremely tart, and although nothing is mentioned about wild yeast, I’d swear I was drinking a Belgian style sour, except one infused with oyster brine. The finish is heavy on the cigarette ash, but somehow it kinda works. It may not be the most balanced (or the tastiest) of ales, but Epic definitely gets points for inventiveness.
