2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Pale amber in colour with medium carbonation and floaties. Aromas of VERY sweet vanilla caramels, fruitwood smoke, a bit of apricot and toasted malt. Quite fruity and caramel sweet in the mouth aw well, backed by some vanilla. Medium bodied. Far too sweet for my taste, and I wish the smoke had carried though in the mouth as well.

a very rich brew. has a mild aroma. But the flavor more than makes up for it. Great marriage between Belgian and smoke.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown pour with minimal head. Strong oaky aroma along with biscuit, nutmeg, brown sugar. Smokiness really makes itself present and in the flavor. Very unique beer. I’m also getting some anise/licorice. Alcohol is noticeable. This is good, not super drinkable however. Points for originality, subtract some points for the palate.

Tap. Dark rusty copper brown. Lots of sweet dark fruit and prunes at first in the aroma. Malty. Decently smoky in the flavor, with some whisky notes on top of the sweet dark fruits. Medium to thicker viscous body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of light smoke and Belgian esters over big oak notes. Taste is more toward the smoke, but still lighter, nicely done, with more of the barrel too. This was well done.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Epic is a name an a fact. Murky amber, floating corpses, thin head. Boring sour aroma, but taste goes woody as it’s barrel aged, smoke, candy sugar. Quite sweet and belgian yeast flavoured, smooth, quaffable, goody good stuff!
