4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: November 27, 2013... GLASSWARE: Schneider Weisen Edel-weisse pokal... OCCASION: Cavs/Heat Thanksgiving eve treat... APPEARANCE: thick, off-white three-finger head; excellent, almost decorative lacing; smoldering effervescence; cloudy, dense autumnal amber body... AROMA: caramel, toffee and generous pale malts; secondary pine hops balance the experience... PALATE: medium to full-bodied--teeth-chattering; surprisingly active early and late...TASTE: redundant to the aroma, caramel and toffee dominate the flavor; a zesty lemon hop spice intercedes for balance; a nuttiness reminiscent of a brown ale seeps in...complex and befitting of a waning Autumn night--a bit alcoholic late...OVERALL: the second beer I’ve had from Epic provides a similar experience to the first--rich, complex, almost challenging to evaluate or categorize, as the bottle suggests--a Marzen, yes, but much fuller of body and substantial of flavor...
