Batch #8

A: Dark brown to black. Not quite as jet black as I thought it might be. Head dissipates quickly but very nice lacing.

S: Strong coffee and bourbon.

T: Big coffee and espresso notes. Mild whiskey notes compared to other similar class stouts I have tried. Alcohol extremely well hidden for 12.5%. Drinks smooth.

M: Not quite as heavy as I expected, but packed with tons of flavor. Leaves a nice espresso vanilla aftertaste lingering.

O: Fantastic beer. This one drank very smooth but still had substantial flavor and character. Will definitely try some of the other batches when I can find them.

Poured into Epic goblet

A- Pours a jet back fluid. It produced a light tan head that faded quickly and left only trace lacing.

S - Great smell with strong coffee and cocoa, with roasted/burnt malt and a touch of vanilla. It is aged in whiskey barrels, which definitely come through, but overwhelmingly so.

T- Very similar to the S, but the whiskey comes through a little more at the end and it has a nice booziness to it, although it finishes very clean. Just great.

M - Smooth, with minimal carbonation. A little heavy on the booze, but I really like it and it doesn't take away from how great it is.

O - Amazing IS. This deserves more credit and is well worth trying. It is well balanced, complex and easy to drink for a big beer. Well done Epic!
