Epicurean Coffee & Fig 2015

Beer #1962 is an oatmeal stout brewed by Epic Brewing in Auckland, New Zealand.

A fairly impressive coffee stout which, as some of you might remember, isn’t my favourite beer style as the coffee tends to overshadow the stout element. This one gets the balance just right. The aroma is full-on coffee but the taste is more subdued, it’s sweet and roasty (the sweetness is possibly as a result of lactose added to the brew) and the coffee is definitely present, front and center, but never dominating. The fig I didn’t get at all, nor did I get any fruits, but there’s some chocolate in there. The 8% ABV is never obvious being very well hidden. Very very nice.

The bottle size is 750ML with an alcohol content of 8.00% (containing approximately 4.70 AU / 6.00 UK standard drinks), and it cost me $26.99.

My Rating is 6.75/10 which means it’s a great beer but it’s just lacking something for me.
