BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Release #7. Bottle. Pours with a black hued body with a massive deep brown head that lasts. The body coats the glass and there is great lace. Unreal retention. Aromas are nutty, bready, roasty, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, toasty, molasses, iodine, bakery fresh bread. Malt forward, but not too sweet. Balanced herbal hop component. Flavors are thick and big. Medium to medium strong bitterness. Herbal hop, toasty, dry, rich cocoa, spicy, molasses, nutty, tobacco, leather and light ash. Roasty, velvety, coffee, iodine. Somewhat clean ester wise. Complex malt impression. Really good. Fuller bodied, medium dry, warming, bitter and slightly roasty throughout the duration. Viscous. Medium so slightly high carbonation for the style. Another solid beer from Epic!

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a very dark brown with large tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roasted nuts, chocolate, wood. Medium mouth with nice roast, dark chocolate, sweet finish. Very good.

ibrubeer (138) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bomber, batch #21. Nice roasty aroma with little molasses. Mahogany color, with few tan bubbles. Nice taste of molasses and licorice. Good bitterness. Very full bodied. Didn’t taste like 10.5%!

Jultsu (211) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
batch #20, 11.2%. Pikimusta, kermanruskea kohtalainen vaahto, tumman huumaava kahvinen tuoksu, ripaus kaakaotakin? Suutuntuma kaakaoisen liukas limainen, vetinen, pienenpieni polte. Kaakaoisen epämakea jälkimaku. Kokonaisuutena kuitenkin liian laimea.

tiong (3937) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
650ml bottle @ ISKTR 2014

Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma of salty licorice, roasty malts, some dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is heavy, salty and roasty with loads of licorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Finish is salty, roasty and slightly sweetish with loads of licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Okay, but nothing special.

"Wish lister - Holy frikkin frik! I’ve liked Epic, but the only beer that’s blown me away from them was Big Bad Baptist. I got this to have side by side, hoping it was the base for BBB. I think it was. Lots of similarities, though without the coffee and bourbon. Big and chewy, classic imperial stout flavors...chocolate, roasted malt and coffee, anise, big fudgy aroma. Really really good brew - didn’t want the bottle to end, but we did have a BBB imediately after, so I took it rather well."

Vaiz (3529) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Black pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is quite roasty, some ash, chocolate, caramel, licorice and a bit burnt. Flavor is quite bitter, roasted and rough. A bit harsh but with a huge body and well balanced.
