Tap @ the brewery tap room. Pours a very dark, reddish beer with a small, beige creamy head on top. Aroma has big coffee, caramel and vanilla. Flavour has the coffee returning big time, backed up by a big molasses influence. Vanilla kicks in at the very end. Very nice brew, long dry finish.

I drank this from a bottle. Nice nice color, weak head, although with a little more aggressive pour cascaded nicely. Goes down easy, light flavor for a stout, not bitter, not sweet, chocolate yes, marshmallow? I wish. Bet it would be good on tap. Worth a drink.

On tap at the Denver location. Pour is deep brown, almost black, with a light red tint and frothy tan head; great lacing. Roasty, chocolatey, sweet vanilla, graham crackers, caramelly, earthy, toasted aroma. Taste is cocoa, vanilla, almost woody, coffee, earthy hops, and grassy with a roasted bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Pretty good beer and very reminiscent of a foreign stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Batch 4. Pours with a near black hued body and a small tan off-white head. Aromas are of cocoa, dark fruits, fudge, baked bread, iodine and licorice, light ash, a bit intense. Flavors are of dark fruits, light pine like hops, roast, resin, iodine, pine, astringency, some herbalness. Not exactly what I look to drink. Lively carbonation, light acidity, more than light astringency, thin, medium cocoa. Not pleasant. Full carbonation. Not my favorite epic beer.
