Straight from the brewery via timbo78 and footbalm. Wow. Epic is just kicking ass and taking names, ya’ll. Straight forward, no funny business. Sexy, roasty, toasty and an overall good feeling. Fun to drink.

Dark brown. Thick head. Chocolate nose with some acidity and toasty malt complexity. Soft, rich cocoa notes. Well-balanced. Nice porter.

This is a very decent porter. Has the requisite coffee and chocolate, dark character, and a thickish palate.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Bomber from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy brown head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, berries and a nutty note. The taste is roasted malts, berries, chocolate, milky note and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Well balanced. Eminently drinkable. Nice beer.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pours a deep sable just a flea’s eyebrow above black with a frothy and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma has strong woody, nutty, malty, and subtle spicy notes. Flavor has a malty underpinning and nutty, earthy, chocolate, and toffee tones, along with woody, bitter hops. Texture has average weight but plenty of fizz, leaving a woody, earthy finish. A satisfying porter.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia Singapore. Black with lasting beige head. Mellow carob aroma is pleasant with some spice, maybe nutmeg. Fresh and lively mouthfeel, tastes alive. Sessionable. Lots of roasted dark malts. Toasted husk character. Solid with a distinct Americanness. Yum, very tasty, total buddy in a bottle.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear brown body with a frothy beige head that has excellent retention. Lots of lacing. The nose is spot on, lots of chocolate malt, some light nutty notes, light roast, some light hops. The flavor is much the same, heavy emphasis on the chocolate malt and a very restrained roasted malt presence. Slightly husky and nutty but in a pleasant way, I like that they kept the roastiness down. Too many Porters really walk the line between Porter and Stout, but this is clearly a true Brown Porter. Nice light hoppiness on the finish keeps it from getting sweet. Lighter bodied with a nice smooth texture and soft fizzy carbonation. This is really really easy drinking. This bomber will go fast. I think this would be a regular drinker if it were available in my area.

This came back from Salt Lake City and the State Liquor Store courtesy of my brother Rick. Poured a dark brown with a tan head and really big bubbles. Lots of lacing as it slowly settled. Nose of roasted malts with coffee and chocolate. Medium plus in body, with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is malty with lots of chocolate and coffee. Some bitterness in the finish. Right to style and easy drinking. I liked this one a lot.
