Got this recently at my local and today was the day to try it. This is a very solid beer and well worth the price. There are better out there but this is a very good value. I am somewhat surprised that there is not more sweetness to it but that is OK. Later this wk I may buy more if they are still there. Now I am curious to try the Baptisa-have 3 and the Triple-have 1

Served slightly below room temp in a 10oz snifter. Great black, dense, viscous appearance on the pour. Minimal head as expected. Deep coffee, cocoa, tobacco, wood and bourbon aroma. Palate follows with an added burnt molasses and toffee sweetness which is well balanced. Earthy, tobacco, cocoa and coffee finish with rich bourbon and oak. Very well integrated and layered, like a fine dessert. Feel is dense and syrupy with somewhat low carbonation. Rich and sticky but not difficult to drink. A top-notch flavored BA stout. Better than KBS, in my opinion.

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of a tan color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, sweet malt, piney hops, liquor, and a hint of wood. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, sweet malt, piney hops, liquor, and a hint of wood. Overall, good blend, strong body, alcohol doesn't dominate, and nice complexity.
