A good stout aged in whiskey barrels. Epic does a nice job on this tasty beer. Has a nice aroma with hints of coco and large doses of coffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and the abv is hidden well. As a plain coffee stout this is very good but I feel it falls short on the barrel aging side of things. The whiskey can hardly be noticed. I would have liked a little more flavor in this department. Overall I would buy it again as it is a good price and worth the time seeking it out.
Bottom Line: Epic age this stuff in the barrel a little longer and you will have a legend in the making.

Served on tap at the brewery in Denver. Pours a pitch black with viscous apperance and dark brown head. The nose is amazing, freshly brewed bold coffee is oozing with light notes of whiskey and roasted malts in the background. Vanilla and chocolate are also present. Taste matches the nose. Coffee up front, smooth notes of vanilla and chocolate with mild whiskey at the end. The barrel aged character is well integrated with the base beer. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with mild carbonation. Overall, this is an under the radar beer for sure. It can be found on shelves pretty easily, but the taste is right up there with many of the beers that never see the light of a shelf.

On tap at Mason Lounge. This is a humongous beer. The aroma is all coffee. As is the flavor in the mouth. A booziness combines with the roasted malt to create a delicious coffee cocktail. Coffee and sugar sweetness, shading into unsweetened cocoa territory on the finish. Full body.
I should revisit this another time when I'm less drunk. But tonight there's something not quite great about this, though. Should compare this to Lagunitas Capuccino Stout...
