This nostalgic porter evokes memories of chocolate and coffee around a campfire.· The cherry wood smoked malt used in this beer gives it a heavy smokiness that blends smoothly into the chocolate malty body.· With a silky finish this porter is ideal for sipping on a cold winters eve.

A 22oz bomber from release batch #33 with a brew date of 2nd March 2015 and a packaged date of 16th March 2015 and poured into a Spiegelau stout glass. It poured a deep dark brown with amber hues and a nice one fingered tan head that dissipated to a thin creamy layer and leaves spotty lacing. The smoke aromas were light but instead aromas were mainly chocolate, some dark fruits and hints of coffee. Felt more smoke in the taste than the aromas, but still on the light side. On top of the smoke though, there is chocolate with hints of toffee, plum and raisin as well as some nice light bitterness. Smooth, creamy, medium bodied and light to medium carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this but the smokiness in both the aroma and taste was less than I expected. Despite this, I would probably still buy this again.

Bottle labelled "Release 13" at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussel. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, subtle smoke, some coffee, hint of chocolate. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Body is just medium. Not very smokey and rather light, but easily drinkable and fairly enjoyable.

22 oz bottle from Dan's cellar at the Downtown Tavern. Release 11. The pour is a really light brown with a lot of ruby and lighter red with a thin ring of white head and no lacing. The aroma is something else. There is a little roasted malt and a lot of smoke that kind of lingers and comes off a little harsh. It's like smelling a campfire to some extent. The flavor is smokey with a little bacon and a light roast. It's just meh. The mouth feel is thin and light with a lingering smokiness and it's just blah. Epic had so much better hopes.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
At Delirium Hoppy Loft, my first beer from Utah. Thin, moussy and opening head over a very dark burgundy beer, near black; pleasant aroma of smoked bacon, some charcoal, bitter chocolate, salmiac, roasted chestnuts, soy sauce and candied dates. Sweetish onset, fruity maltiness, chocolatey and nutty, soy sauce siltiness, soft mouthfeel, peppery hops, roasted bitterness and well-dosed smokiness (smoked herring and charcoal) creeping through. Very well-balanced example of its style.

Not what I expected from epic. I expected more smoke more intensity. Everything subtle. Nose head flavors. Oh well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2015
On tap at the Denver brewery. Deep, dark brown appearance with a lingering beige head. Mild aroma of light smoke, chocolate, dark malts, light coffee and light roast. Similar flavor, more pronounced smoke, malty and pretty smooth with light notes of caramel and toffee. Medium body, pretty easy drinking for a smoked beer. Nicely done overall.

3fourths (8788) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Draft. Clear dark brown with a short tan colored head. Chocolate malt and faint roast in the aroma with minimal smoke, something that blends into the roast profile more than stands out. The dark caramel / chocolate / coffee maltiness is generic and there’s faint huskiness. Lightly sweet with medium-low bitterness and medium acidity. Carbonation is a little brash and fizzy and the finish is short and syrupy. No major problems but it’s very plain in aroma and flavor and the texture isn’t remarkable.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, ashes, some smoky notes into a bit of caramel, slight dark fruit in there as well. Taste was ashy and smoky up front into nice caramel, sweet cocoa powder, some slight roast and coffee as well, finishing bitter, smoky.

Poured from bottle, pours a very dark brown almost black with a thin tan head, the aroma has a decent amount of smoke mixed in with a chocolate backing, the flavor has a slight smoke and chocolate front end with a sweeter finish, decent mouthfeel, not bad.

Black pour with a tight foamy light khaki head. Nice smokey nose with a sweet earthy cocoa bit. Good roasty flavour with a fair dose of roasted black malt and cocoa. Delightful and balanced. Just roasty enough and toasty.
