Clear brown colored ale with very slight head formation.

Smells of chocolate and coffee with vanilla and almond scent. Wheat toast with a little bit of burnt toast scent. Slight raw grain aroma.

Starts out dry and heavily roasted. Taste is mostly coffee reminds me of Italian Espresso soda. Essentially a coffee flavored beer.

Mouthfeel is average.

Overall it is OK, but I was expecting more.

Pours black with a mocha head. Aroma starts of roasty and chocolatey, a bit nutty too, then gradually introduces a little coffee and a kiss of hops to allow a touch of bitterness to the table. Flavor followed suit. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a nice solid American Stout. Aint gonna blow you away, but a nice tap offering that would be worthy of future purchases.

a really solid stout from epic here, straightforward and delicious. red glow under a very dark rich brown body and a creamy head that the nitro dispense is undoubtedly responsible for. dark but not insanely black roast on the malt, notes of bitter coffee come through. balanced bittering hops accentuate this. I also get just a hint of unsweetened bakers chocolate as I swallow, a really pleasant finish, lighter than it looks, complex, expertly put together. not quite as much body as I like in these though, and not even the nitro can cover that slightly thin feel, but the texture itself is silky and clean, a real easy drinking stout as they go. the abv is just right for cold weather, and this is a beer I will absolutely return to as winter moves in. another true to style beer from epic that really nails it.

Served in a DC Brau tulip.

A: Dark, dark, dark and then some. The head was about a 1/4 finger or so and was of a mocha color.

S: Fairly faint roasty coffee notes, but still good.

T: Nice roasty flavor on the forefront, but not much on the aftertaste. Still, this was above serviceable.

M: Creamy enough and nicely done on the mouthfeel front. Ridiculous lacing, but still slippery upon close inspection.

O: Pretty good, especially considering the $5-6 price tag.

Bomber > Mason pint

Batch #15

A - Pours a nice coffee black brown color, one finger of sudsy tan head, little lacing.
S - Reminiscent of some chocolate covered coffee beans, toasted grains, hazelnut, toffee, but its a very hard to find aroma.
T - Good semi-complex flavor here, nice coffee and chocolate flavors among a nice roasted malt base, and there's some good mild darker earthy hop tones to it as well, which is welcomed.
M - Very creamy smooth, its for sure the best part of this beer.
O - Not bad, could use a little more kick in the aroma, but its a nice basic stout with some good traits and a little complexity.
