Big Earth Flavors and aroma, this Brownish hazy thick brew was awesome. Great flavor, the aroma was interesting where you smelt the shroom. The finish was dry with that grassy earth flavor. Wow what a beer.
(22oz bottle, courtesy of BMan1113VR) Pours a brown body with a small tan quickly dissipating head. Aroma of charred grain, rye, coconut, chocolate, soy, and roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt, soy marinated shiitake, earth, and cocoa. robforbes (2261) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2010
pours a dark brown with a red tint, a thin khaki head that dissipates, and not much lacing.
smell is of bakers chocolate, malt, earth, some coffee, and just a touch of campfire.
taste is of hops, malt, cocoa, some coffee, dirt, and some smoke in the back, ends a little dry and somewhat bitter.

Bottle thanks to Suzygreenberg. Pours near black with a large brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is interesting as it smells very earthy with a hint of mushroom on the nose. Flavor is very earthy as well with notes of mushroom and roasted malts. BillKismet (4103) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Molasses brown-black with light chocolate cream that covers half the top. Thick portabella steak-like meatiness of a stout aroma with notes of charcoal. Deep, robust earthiness. Creamy and profoundly roasty with, again, a portabella steak finish with touches of Worcesters sauce. Outstanding, flavor and full-bodied. A top-notch grill out beer.

bottle thanks to bman1113vr. poured dark brown with a beige head. aroma was coffee and dark roasts (i think). flavor was much the same plus some bitter, chocolate??, and cola. light body with high carbonation. sebletitje (10282) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2010
courtesy of googzoid10, many thanks for sending all these WA gems.
22oz bomber, pours brown, mocha head. Light golden lacing.
aroma is malty with roasted coffee scents. Aroma also has this earthly/moss sort that anyone who went mushroom picking would know what I am trying to describe. It’s mild and not overpowering.
flavors, grainy and malty, some bitter coffee/chocolate, thick mouthfeel. As the beer warms up, I got a lot more mocha goodness with a thick earthly mouthfeel reminiscent of mushroom that is somewhat similar to aroma. Some faint bitterness of hops, mostly balanced out by the chocolate and coffee.
This is tasty, need to seek out more Epic Ales, these guys surely brew some interesting beers. MeadMe (1680) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Big Thanks to SeaBass for another rare gem.
A: Pours a nice dark flat black with a nice tall tan head. Nice retention with some spotty lace.
S: Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and a real earthy aroma that I can’t put my finger one.... the mushrooms maybe with a hint of smoke?
T: Wow real nice flavors. Chocolate malt up front. Nice roasted coffee with hints of earth. No veggie flavor really, nice earthy flavors my guess is from the mushroom. Real tasty, complex, smooth... good.
M: Medium in body, smooth, rich, tasty. portableparty (2379) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle shared thanks Greg. Pour is black in color with a tan head. Aroma is very earthy and vegetables. Taste again very vegetable and spice and theres hints of chocolate as well. This has a sticky and chaulky dry feel. Overall not a bad beer, I enjoyed this quite abit. DalzAle (2038) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle thanks to bvc. Dark brown pour, plenty of carbonation and an earthy, nutty, metallic aroma. Flavor is very earthy, plenty of roasted barley, some bitter chocolate and finished dry and nutty. Really unique, I’d probably pick it up if available locally.
