Heard good things. Batch #2, just released I believe.
Dark brown to black pour. Some clarity in the light. Small coffee colored head.
Picking up a lot of coffee in the nose. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, but mostly dominated by coffee.
Taste had even more coffee. It was very bold and robust. Chocolate underneath. Bitter with a medium sweetness for an imperial stout. I had a little trouble picking up the whiskey barrel. At times, I tasted some vanilla, oak, and maybe some honey but it wasn't very forward at all so I wasn't sure if I was just imagining it. Mouthfeel was thinner than I'd like.
This was a nice surprise from Epic and definitely worth a try. Excellent price too. I hope they get some more character from the barrel for the next batch. This coud be a good substitute for Bourbon County Coffee.
Serving type: on-tap
