825 Stout (Epic Brewing, Salt Lake City, UT)
Pours inky black with a light tan head. Singular roast smell wafts up immediately, and along with bready, earth notes. Nice. Roast is clear in the first sip as well—enough the I thought it to be an Irish stout. BA lists it as an oatmeal stout, which the smoothness of the brew lends itself to it but it seems to be misnamed a bit, maybe. Slight dark fruits underneath the coffee taste. Clean and dry off the back. More than adequate stout.
