COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beast of a brew. This dark, rich hearty ale is made with shiitake mushrooms, adding umami soaked earthiness unique to this beer. Brewed with a balanced blend of roasted barley and oats, the mouthfeel is truly narrative. Both complex and straight-forward, this ale is equally at home with a hearty fresh off the grill steak or a late night game of poker.

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.

Pours dark brown with tan head, aroma is big shittake mushrooms, earth, almost dirt like but in a good way. Taste is some chocolate, nuts, earth, and mushrooms with a fairly dry and bitter finish. Not bad, kind of weird but true to what they say from the style!

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Roasty aroma with earthy notes and a light sweetness. The flavor has roasted malts, earthy notes, coffee, and a hint of sweetness. Good stuff.

[3414-20101002] 1pt6floz bottle. Roasted dark wood forest aroma has mild dry bark sticks. Dark brown body with a quick foamy light brown head. Earthy dry wood roast flavour has a long lingering smoky roast malt aftertaste. Full body. Sneakily quite boozy.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a murky and somewhat grainy very dark brown. Dense, creamy, surging moussy head. Nice toasted caramel, wet earth, and tangy mushroom nose. Creamy medium body with pleasant carb. Beautifully balanced body--not at all heavy but has some density and savoriness to it, with the carb providing just the right structural balance. Earth, toast, nuts, caramel, and that vaguely gamey mushroom note on the mid palate. Maybe a hint of chocolate way in the background. Clean dry finish. Great beer.

Bottle via a trade with Scrizzz. Pours with a deep brown body and a tan head. Aroma is extremely earthy, toasted sesame seeds, chocolate, roasty, umami, soy, and steak. Taste is earthy, roasty and a bit bitter, long and ashy, umami, smoke. Light bubbles. Very interesting beer.

Bottle:   Deep brown, very dark, nearly black, loads of sediment on the bottom of the glass, moderate beige head, very little lacing.   Earthy roasted malt nose.   Could be mushrooms I suppose.   Just seems rather earthy to me.   Lactose sweetness otherwise.   Smidgen of coffee bean.   Smooth roasted malt flavor up front, very Sweet Stout like.   Backside has a bit of a grape popsicle stick... odd.   As it warms I get some charred wood or campfire.   Remains very earthy from start to finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Flavorful, but not heavy.   Interesting to say the least, and a bit different.
