Epic: Apocalypse (Black IPA)

Two Row Bar, Fitzroy (Melbourne)

Get ready for a barrage of Metalocalypse references!

This beer is, how you says, much better than yous.  It's brutal, and the uninitiated may pull a Murderface.

Peppery, herbal, hoppy, and at 8% you will be feeling like Pickles the Drummer in no time.  It is a hex-kick of character and flavour, with a roasty aroma that hints of rosemary.

There is raisin sweetness and roastiness that come through and continue on into the aftertaste.  The mouthfeel is smooth with medium carbonation and there is subtlety in the mix as well with suggestions of tea-like tannin.

A totally awesome sweet alabama liquid snake of a blackened IPA.  The Epic lads have done it yet again.  It is worth noting that Apocalypse provides the continuation in a series of madly over-the-top hoppy IPAs; it's predecessors being Hop Zombie and Armageddon IPA.  Goodness knows what they will come up with next.
