BMan1113VR (7880) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Release #7. Bottle. Pours with a black hued body with a massive deep brown head that lasts. The body coats the glass and there is great lace. Unreal retention. Aromas are nutty, bready, roasty, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, toasty, molasses, iodine, bakery fresh bread. Malt forward, but not too sweet. Balanced herbal hop component. Flavors are thick and big. Medium to medium strong bitterness. Herbal hop, toasty, dry, rich cocoa, spicy, molasses, nutty, tobacco, leather and light ash. Roasty, velvety, coffee, iodine. Somewhat clean ester wise. Complex malt impression. Really good. Fuller bodied, medium dry, warming, bitter and slightly roasty throughout the duration. Viscous. Medium so slightly high carbonation for the style. Another solid beer from Epic!

Jultsu (221) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
batch #20, 11.2%. Pikimusta, kermanruskea kohtalainen vaahto, tumman huumaava kahvinen tuoksu, ripaus kaakaotakin? Suutuntuma kaakaoisen liukas limainen, vetinen, pienenpieni polte. Kaakaoisen epämakea jälkimaku. Kokonaisuutena kuitenkin liian laimea.
