This is from Batch #3 according to the label. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a snifter. I recently bought this at a local bottle shop, so I wasn't responsible for its aging (it appears Batch #3 was bottled back in late 2011).

A: Opaque dark brown; thick and viscous. Not a ton of head, actually. Probably less than a quarter inch with very fine bubbles. Looks like the small bit of foam you'd get in a cup of French-pressed coffee.

S: Vanilla, bourbon, mocha/espresso. Not super strong-smelling, but nonetheless pleasant.

T: Coffee jumps out, then chocolate; it's relatively sweet, and I expected a slightly bitter finish that never actually came. It was just a rumor of bitterness, really, just on the back of the tongue. If I tried, I might get a tinge of bourbon every three sips. Overall, it is sweeter than it is bitter.

M: Thick and viscous, even more so than expected after the pour. Very smooth, with subtle carbonation. It coats the tongue like good braising liquid.

Overall: This is a fantastic version of the style, one that I picked up on a whim after my wife suggested it. Hadn't had much from Epic before, coming from the east coast. I was very pleasantly surprised and would happily pay another 10-12 bucks for this. Good on a cool, wet fall night.
