Flavors EPIC explores within this stout are roast chocolate, toffee, mocha, coffee, brunt marshmallow and roasted nuts or combinations there-of. All these flavors are derived from specialty malts or other grains and hops, no specialty natural or other flavorings are added in our Elevated Series, look for natural ingredient like real coffee and chocolate in our Exponential Series. Release number one of the 825 STATE STOUT is an easy drinking Oatmeal Stout.

22 ounce bottle, Release #15, Brewed on 1/19/2012, Packaged 2/2/2012, 5.6% ABV. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. It smells like roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and some molasses. It tastes like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, caramel malt and molasses. It’s a little more sweet than bitter tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy, and is also well carbonated. I think it’s a good stout overall. At just $4.99 a bottle, I’d buy it again. It’s certainly worth a try at that price, although I’d like to try a fresher bottle next time.

mbgrayson (617) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Pours a dark brown with ample tan head. Aroma is lightly of coffee and chocolate. Taste of malt, slightly sweet taste of mocha. Smooth and quite drinkable. Not a great stout, but solidly OK. A close thumbs up, mainly because I like stouts.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Some roast, burnt marchmallow, roasted notes, some toffee or caramel. Pours dark brown more or less black with a thin head. Flavors of roasted malts, burnt marshmallow like the description says as well as tofee, a little coffee. Smooth and light with light to moderate carbonation. Not a bad stout.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Release #8. Bottle opens with a loud hiss. Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a massive, frothy light beige head that fills up half of the glass. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Looks like it’s infected. Metallic cardboard aroma with sybtle underlying roasted malt. Definitely smells infected. Yep, a cometely infected, terrible mess. Overly carbonation wth strong mettalic chemicals and cardboard. Undrinkable disaster.

jjgmd (1681) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours a dark opaque black with a nice head. Nose is weak, taste is light chocolate and coffee and rather pleasant. Finish is dry. Very drinkable but light stout. Quaff Score 7 / 10

zgaier (1607) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a dissipating tan head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet, of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel with a short finish. Flavor is light for a stout and therefore lacks some flavor.

obguthr (4536) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Medium roast coffee nose, not strong. Brown, thin tan head. Sweet soil flavor, medium roast coffee. Coffee notes are more pronounced toward the end. Solid.

nuplastikk (5033) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2012
22oz bomber, not quite opaque. Thin beige head. A pretty nice moderate ABV Stout. Roasty chocolate tones, Not much hop flavor, maybe a little for balance. Balanced this one is, a nice amount of depth, but still very drinkable. Like the description states: somewhere between Cream, Dry, and Foreign Stout. RIght on, solid offering.
