Tap sample - Nitro. Poured a black color with a large fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate dark coffee and sweet malt aroma. Medium dark chocolate flavor with a medium sweet coffee finish of moderate duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer.

Release #11 Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is sweet with some chocolate, slight coffee, and some roasted malts. Flavor isnít as big as I was hoping. Strong of the chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts up front. Slightly watery on the finish but still some bitterness.

LilBeerDoctor (3465) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Bottle, release #11. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of sweet lactose and roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt with plenty of sweetness. Itís ok, but not particularly flavorful and the palate is thin. A simple sweet stout, drinkable but nothing special. 7/4/7/3/14 [3.5/5]

ben4321 (3920) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/20/12

Aroma: The nose is roasted malts, light chocolate and caramel, bread, dough, and coffee
Appearance: The pour is a dark brown-black color with a small beige head and streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly subdued, mostly roasted malty flavors similar to the nose, lightly sweet
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a fairly short duration, average carbonation, and a slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent stout, but not a particularly exciting one.

Dark brown in color, clear and tan head. Dark malt and chocolate, coffee aroma and flavors. Rich thick flavors and nice roast grains. This is a great coffee stout.

JMerritt (1803) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Release #7. Dark ruby/plum with a small, bright white head. Bittersweet cocoa nose with light coffee roast. Moderately sweet flavor with mild smokey notes, light toffee and a definite roasted nut finish. Dry, nutty and toasted barley finish is long lasting. Moderately high carbonation with a slightly thin palate. A rather light stout that is quite sessionable. Thanks to my friend Caryn for the bottle.

matthewjk (909) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2012
poured from 22 ounce bomber ( Release #11) - Pretty damn good stout from Epic, but this has been my experience with the majority of their beers: quality! So this stout changes from year to year? This yearís is pretty sweet, but does have some burnt notes in there as well. Slick feel. Very good bargain craft bomber.
