3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle, "Release #5 9.1% ABV." Dark garnet pour; frothy tan head builds as the beer is poured; dissipates into absolutely zero covering; no lacing. Aroma sweet, nutty malt, bread, deep-but-not-quite-dark fruit. Flavor has a fruit ester thing going on, pretty sweet, toast; clear alcohol in the exhale but not boozy. Medium body, heavy but smooth carbonation and quite sticky. Less than mind-blowing but well above average and one of Epic’s better offerings that I’ve had to date.
Backlog entry. Good flavors, close to style, as expected without too many surprises. Sdaniel90 (1106) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 21, 2017

Rating #2636 - 2016.06.27 - Sample at "taproom" in SLC. Dark brown pour with a tan head that fades fairly slowly. Mild-medium carbonation. Aroma is roasted coffee beans, cocoa, hint of toffee and earth Taste is earthy, roasty, dry, yet balanced finish. Cocoa and vanilla sweetness lingers on the pallet. Very nice. stchloe (1118) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2017

Epic has brewed another excellent doublebock lager. Full of malty sweetness smooth easy drinking would recommend. AgentAle (1847) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2017
Aroma is tart, caramel and citrus. Taste is light sweet malts, honey, caramel and clove. Nice balance between the grains and hops. Finishes smoothly. Appearance is a clear brown with a thin pearl head that retains somewhat poorly. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
Sweet note but with enough booze to give it a nice combination. I could fast with a case of this by my side. I would like a little more depth but an easy drinking beer. kassner (1722) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2017
On tap at whole foods in wexford. Light cola color, no head and little lacing. But great taste without an oberburdon of sweetness. Much like Bifrost.
