Served On Tap at Fireworks in Courthouse/ Arlington VA

A: Dark Midnight Black Ink.
S: Dark milk chocolate, light smoke, malt and cherries
T: Dark milk chocolate, french press Colombian coffee, Dark cherries, bready malt, raspberry tart. Quite tasty, the creamy bourbon barrel comes on last i n the taste profile but the subtle hear comes in the third layer behind the chocolate, and coffee.
M: Light carbonation that tingles the back part of my throat. Milk and smooth. Like melted milk chocolate.
O: This is one amazing stout! I had some doubts but this one now is number 3 all time! Gonna go back for some more soon and get me a couple of overpriced bottles to stock up on!

Serving type: on-tap

I've drank a number of beers, and done a number of beer reviews, but there are few things that come even remotely close to this beer.

The only way I can describe it is like: "Drinking a midnight-black and thick, glass of chocolate-covered espresso beans".

It's sweet.
It's filling.
It's difficult as hell to get through a whole bottle on your own.

But it's also quite delicious.

Definitely a dessert beer of "Epic" proportions.

The "Big Bad Baptist" name also fits, if you think about this as "coffee and donuts after church"... now I just need to find a church that serves it.

Hands down, one of my favorite beers. I've tried batches #1, #3, and #4.

pours black with thin khaki head, smells roasted malty and strongly of coffee. medium low carbonation, smooth on the palate. Taste overwhelmingly of coffee! Great River's "redband" coffee stout is nothing compared to this! tastse like cup of black coffee with no sugar or cream, i wouldn't be surprised if there was 50% or more coffee in this one! no booziness at all or cocoa that i can pick out. the bourbon is also very faint unfortunatly. but the coffee in this bid bad Baptist ballsy beast of a beer is epicly gloriously grand. wow. perfect.
