look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown, almost black with a medium brown head.
The nose is dominated by roasted coffee beans with a hint of bourbon.
It tastes strongly of coffee with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. It finishes bitter like a cup of black coffee with just the slightest of boozy undertones (I would attribute them to the bourbon, but they're very slight). The batch I had was supposedly a 10.2 % but it drank very smooth and hid the alc content well. Not my favorite coffee stout but it's definitely up there.

Definitely worth a try. Just be careful cause this one will creep up on you with that alc content.

This stout poured with an obvious thickness and resembled coffee in appearance. The head was a thin lace of fine bubbles.

The aroma held a deep roasted coffee, spicy chili peppers, chocolate malts and a smokey tobacco.

The flavor was so smooth and diverse with a nice roasted coffee, whipped cream, chocolate, tobacco smokiness, malty Graham cracker cocoa powder and a dry lactose-sweetness.

The feel is almost velvety in its smoothness and has a nice thickness. It comes across as a bit dry.

Big Bad Baptist is a big, bad stout with nice varied flavors and a strong decisive complexion.
