Today we have a change of pace, a guest review. My friend Peter was kind enough to review a beer that I have not yet tried. I have loved the label since I first saw it. Now I’m quite sure I would love the contents!!
This rare offering pours almost opaque chocolate brown with a burnt copper head.
The foam lingers long enough to be appreciated, but not so long that it impairs the cocoa nibs and coffee (three different blends from Salt Lake City, Denver and San Diego roasters) from reaching the tasters’ nose.
The coffee and savory cocoa – no candy bars here – serve to mellow the 12.3% alcohol content. But rest assured you will know it’s there, and that it spent just enough time in whiskey barrels before being offered to us lucky few.
Oh, and there’s just enough hops as the taste leaves your mouth to “cleanse your palate” for the next sip!
(This is one of the most delicious brews I have ever tasted.)
So now, clearly, I have to try some EPiC beers myself. It is my selfish selfless duty to my readers.
