22oz bomber lightly chilled and poured into a snifter...big boozy nose from the barrel, but not overwhelming on the palate. Solid coffee flavor upfront then giving way to roasted malt and stouty lusciousness. Not opposed to this offering whatsoever...well done Epic

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured Big Bad BAPTIST into a snifter.

A - Pours black as midnight with a bubble of mocha head.

S - Coffee , dark chocolates on first sniff. Getting just a touch of vanilla.

T - Taste is nice. Smooth dark chocolates initially with strong coffee flavors. Mid palate getting vanilla, roasted malts and more coffee. On the aftertaste hints of char and vanilla with more roast and coffee.

M - Smooth full body with low carbonation.

O - Damn good beer. Recommended Cheers!

A perfect winter beer that is remarkably smooth considering the ABV. This is my winter beer, though I don't usually drink more than a few during the winter for functionality's sake.
