A - pitch black, very little foam. I didnt get too much lacing on this
S - Definitely has an espresso smell but nothing too over powering.
T - You can really taste the espresso. A little watery.
M -Not a stout in the traditional sense; tastes more like a porter.
O - I don't know. Honestly it was just sub-par. Not sub-par in the awful sense; more on the upper-side of below average. I wouldnt recommend it nor would i try it again. But i wouldn't turn it down if it was offered to me. That's really the best review i can give.

Clear brown colored ale with very slight head formation.
Smells of chocolate and coffee with vanilla and almond scent. Wheat toast with a little bit of burnt toast scent. Slight raw grain aroma.
Starts out dry and heavily roasted. Taste is mostly coffee reminds me of Italian Espresso soda. Essentially a coffee flavored beer.
Mouthfeel is average.
Overall it is OK, but I was expecting more.

Pours black with a mocha head. Aroma starts of roasty and chocolatey, a bit nutty too, then gradually introduces a little coffee and a kiss of hops to allow a touch of bitterness to the table. Flavor followed suit. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a nice solid American Stout. Aint gonna blow you away, but a nice tap offering that would be worthy of future purchases.

a really solid stout from epic here, straightforward and delicious. red glow under a very dark rich brown body and a creamy head that the nitro dispense is undoubtedly responsible for. dark but not insanely black roast on the malt, notes of bitter coffee come through. balanced bittering hops accentuate this. I also get just a hint of unsweetened bakers chocolate as I swallow, a really pleasant finish, lighter than it looks, complex, expertly put together. not quite as much body as I like in these though, and not even the nitro can cover that slightly thin feel, but the texture itself is silky and clean, a real easy drinking stout as they go. the abv is just right for cold weather, and this is a beer I will absolutely return to as winter moves in. another true to style beer from epic that really nails it.
