22oz bomber poured into a chalice. Release # 18, among the first they've brewed in Denver!

A: Opaque with a thick mocha head upon pouring that thins out quickly. Carbonation right out of the bottle is very active and noticeable, at times the bubbles seemed to jump out of the glass disturbing the head. Interesting to see explosive carbonation like this in a stout.

S: Wow! Amazing coffee aromas either espresso or fine ground dark roast. Cocoa nibs and some nutmeg are there as well.

T: Again, powerful coffee flavor. This may be a turn off if you don't like strong, dark coffee, but I love it! The cocoa flavors jump out more here and offer a nice sweetness to balance out the coffee bitterness. Spice really jumps out as the beer warms up - I notice black pepper and maybe some peat from the whiskey barrel. Left with a chewy, gingerbread type flavor at the end.

M: Syrupy, more like black samba than a beer viscosity, but that isn't a bad thing and it thins out eventually. The throat warming effect of the whiskey is noticeable.

O: This is a statement stout. More often, brewers opt to highlight the chocolate / cocoa side of this relationship. I really like the strong coffee expressions in aromas and flavor. Truly worthy of an Epic designation!
