Beer – #34 – Epic Epicurean Coffee & Fig Oatmeal Stout

Well, the Epic Epicurean Coffee & Fig Oatmeal Stout was another beer that was recommend to me to try.

It’s an 8% ABV Imperial Oatmeal Stout delivered in a massive 750Ml bottle. My work is cut out tonight then

It pours really dark, like a really good stout should, and has an aroma of citrus, and coffee and chocolate, so I thought.

The taste is amazing! Big on coffee, sweet caramel malts, Chocolate, it has them all, in aces! It somewhat surprising to have the aroma that follows the taste. Not what I was expecting and I might add completely welcome, thank you very much.

Of course this is from the Epic Brewing Company and is Brewed at Steam Brewing Company here in Auckland. Epic is about right

I’ve nothing bad to say about this, the head dies away but leaves a nice lacing in the glass, The aroma is still there and the taste is, well,  tasty.

On the completely arbitrary Pdubyah-o-meter this is a powerful 9 from 10, This is a beer that you should share with your mates, and as I look around me just now I can see a couch, which is where I’m going to sit and share this with. Top stuff
