Epic Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout, 11.7% ABV. Pours black with a one finger tan head that left nice lacing. Nose is chocolate, and lactose, and a bit like 'smores. Taste follows, plus some coffee, moderate sweetness, light bitterness, some bourbon flavor. Excellent mouthfeel, overall outstanding.

Pitch black color with brown head. The taste is definitely on the strong side. Almost overpowering at first with a smoother aftertaste.

Pours black with a finger of caramel-colored head. Head retention is fair with good lacing left behind. Aroma is bourbon, cocoa nibs, milk chocolate, coffee, and roasted and toasted malts. The aroma carries a hefty weight, while remaining balanced. Flavor profile is roasted and toasted malts with a splended smoothness from milk chocolate and cocoa nibs. Medium-roast coffee adds a touch of acidity, while bourbon cuts the sweetness of the chocolate. All together, it forms a beautiful symphony. Mouth feel is velvety, creamy and smooth with a thick consistency. Overall, a stout crafted with the utmost of care and skill. It carries a hefty weight with each individual note shining through, all the while remaining well balanced.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 22oz bottle.
