Epic Brewing has debuted two new beers to help satisfy your dark half.
The first release is Epic's Imperial Stout. This is a big 10% brew. It is full of dark roasted malts, big coffee, chocolate notes and glowing alcohol warmth.
Epic's second release is a little more subtle. The Smoked Porter comes in at a mellow 6.1%, has nice chocolate and espresso notes with a moderate amount of smokiness.
These beers styles tend to do better with age. The Smoked Porter is drinking pretty well right now, but the Impy Stout could use some time in the bottle to mellow a little bit.
Regardless these are two great additions to the Holiday line-up. With all these great new local releases from the various breweries, there's no reason not to be drinking great local beers this holiday season.
