Pours a cloudy black red. You can see through it when held to the light but barely. Has a half inch of whiteish brown head. The nose is coffee stout. So this is coffee stout and a good one with cherry added. The cherry comes through twards the end then the coffee comes back for the finish. Doesn't taste bad but it does taste like two beers put together.

On tap at World of Beer Colorado Blvd. I love Big Bad Baptist so I ordered this despite my dislike for Strange Brewing and their Cherry Kriek. Typical stout appearance, pitch black, minimal head. Aroma was heavy coffee and all Big Bad Baptist. Flavor was interesting, I got the chocolate and then sweet cherries and coffee. It was a little too sweet for me but still quite interesting.

a 60/40 (ish) blend of kriek from strange brewing and big bad baptist from epic. was skeptical about this one, but its awfully good. the pour is murky dark red, lots of color from the kriek showing through, but the head is still rich and tan like that from the baptist. the nose on this is interesting, tart cherries fade into bitter coffee and dark chocolate. the dark malt of the baptist gives the cherries some needed meat, and the bitterness also tempers any sweetness from the kriek. rich layers of fruit and chocolate go back and forth like a good dessert. the alcohol is subtle here, and the bitterness gets the final say. coffee is subtle here too, but its there giving an earthy darkness to the whole thing. carbonation is good and the body is a lot lighter than the straight up baptist, which lends to drinkability. a glass or two of this is enough, overwhelmingly flavorful i think, a very cool combination of brewing talents and flavors here, and it really does work. on tap at epic now, definitely worth trying.
