Bottle. Pours opaque black, medium tan head, dissipates leaving decent lacing. Aroma is rich, cocoa and coffee, molasses, ashtray. Flavor is hella ashtray, deep deep raosted malts with hints of smoke, baking cocoa, molasses and a vanilla finish, graham crackers. Light plus sweet, fully bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Not a lot of bourbon here, but pretty damn solid nonetheless. Somewhat hot.

My favorite beer of all time and probably one of the most complex beers you’ll have. The aroma is smooth and chocolaty. The appearance is velvety and has a great foamy, smooth head. The taste is outstanding with a perfect balance between cocoa, coffee, and bourbon. This is a definite must try if you ever go to Epic... and an incredible beer for cold, snowy days.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Amazing aroma! Chocolate, tobacco, coffee, slight sweetness. Yummy. Pours a thick black with a thin rapidly dissipating khaki head and no lacing. The taste is strong coffee, chocolate, tobacco, hints of wood and citrus. Wonderful. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Overall, this was a robust satisfying stout. Well done Epic.

CacheManyHose (713) - HONG KONG - AUG 15, 2015
From Brewcraft. Had after Matt came back after a month away. Inky black, thin tan creamy bubbly head, spotty legs. Smells of heavy coffee, chocolate, smoke/ash, plum, boozy woody bourbon. Nose is very nice, almost like a black IPA. Taste is very bitter, a bit herbal, moderate spicy malt, bitter finish. Body is thick, slightly syrupy, spicy. A rare barrel aged stout that isn't too cloying or heavy. Really nice, with a lot of coffee and bitterness.
