Ernest (6221) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cocoa powder, cereal, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Clumsy malt character in this one...odors of icky Hershey’s cocoa and Rice/Corn Chex abound. Some hop brightness helps, but man that malt needs some re-tooling. Underattenuated, soggy/limp, and thin in the mouth. Not much enticing in this one, unfortunately. Kinda like extract homebrew.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Served on draft at Capital Ale House Innsbrook. Pours a dark brown color with no head. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke and a sweet malt finish. The taste is roasted malts, a milky note, smoke, coffee, sweet malts and faint hops. Medium bodied, smooth and very drinkable.

dmac (4013) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2011
22 oz bomber from EZ. Poured a slightly watery pitch black body underneath a large frothy light beige head. Aroma is loaded with chocolate, milk, cake, ashes. Flavor is the same as the aroma. The body starts off slightly watery for an intial second then fades into a medium/full body with bubbly carbonationand a quick fading aftertaste.Very solid.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 9, 2011
(22oz bottle from Total Wine Scottsdale. Release #10, abv 5.4%). Pours a dark cola color with thin khaki head. Aroma is oatmeal, nuts, chocolate. Really nice! Taste is sweet with some nice roastiness to balance the beer out. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Bitter, but smooth finish. A bit dry because of the roast. Another nice beer from Epic!

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Dark mahogany pour with a creamy eggshell head. Nose is weak but shows hints of cocoa, caramel, and toasted oats. Flavor is mild with chocolate, roasted coffee, and burnt caramel finding their way. Thin for the style but enjoyed it and it’s easy drinking.
