Profile

Smell

Quite a subtle nose for a beer that calls itself “Big Boy” - the toasted grain and coffee will be the most that you get out of it. The hops hint at a show but don’t hit the stage.

Taste

Toasted grains and earthy loam will blast your taste buds. The earthiness is so strong that it tends to crush out anything else in this beer. There’s a touch of herbal hops and caramel notes, but overall this is a highly roasted flavour profile. You’ve got to love brown ale to love this guy. Taste is pretty quick on the tongue and leaves behind a dry, slightly singed aftertaste.

Pairing

With such an earthy flavour, you need to get into something like a roasted chicken with steamed carrots.

Sight

Pours a dark, murky brown with low carbonation.

Description

Epic Brewing is a bold step forward in Utah’s brewing scene - the first brewery since prohibition to produce high-alcohol beers. Being under that scrutiny, Epic has made it their business to produce hand crafted, small-batch beers in a wide variety. Using techniques and styles from the US and Europe, Epic aims to fill their slate with all the popular styles, done well and made to be savoured. Since 2010 Epic has grown to produce a handful of permanent beers, and an awesome rotation schedule of new styles. To be truly Epic in a singular space, the work has to be uncompromising and meet the highest standards - have a taste and discover an Epic vision of craft beer. The Big Boy Hoppy Brown is based on the classic European brown ale style - strong malt character with a hop backbone, coffee and caramel flavours. Serves well at 10°C and can cellar for six months.
