Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with light brown, moderate head. Good head retention and lacing. Moderate roasted aroma - milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, oaky. The barrel notes are not so intense, but still quite up-front. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. In overall good brew, well ABV hidden, bourbon notes are on moderate level and not very annoying. Malty backbone is nice, should be a little more thick, but still good one. Solid 4.0.

This was an awesome bourbon barrel imperial stout. Aroma was awesome. Strong chocolate and milk smells. Pour was a nice deep dark brown/near black with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was fantastic. One of the most balanced bourbon barrel aged beers Ive ever had. Chocolate milk, sweet milk chocolate and just small hints of vanilla. The bourbon doesnt overpower in this beer; it accentuates it. Creates a sweet, woody and bourbon finish. Medium carbonation. This was a great beer

In mouth, a nice sweet chocolate malt with loads of coffee, licorice notes, vanilla, alcohol warmth, very nice and pleasing. Bottle at Hugue and Alex tasting.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2017 Great Imperial Stout. The name is very revealing. Its big and its bad, in a very good way. Not sure about the baptist. If you like barrel aged imperial stouts, this one is right up there. Like how they give you the release # and the abv on each bottle. You can go to their web site and look up that specific release. Mine was 3 years old when I opened it and it was fantastic.

Bottle, 22oz, shared by bergstaden. A black beer with a dense light tan head. The aroma has lots of coffee and alcohol, with cocoa, coconut and roasted malts. Dark sugars. Some burnt hints. Its full-bodied, warming and smooth on the palate, with flavors of cocoa, coconut, roasted malts and some burnt malts and dark sugar. Lasting finish, sure on the sweet side, with roasted malts, a burnt touch and cocoa, coconut and a licorice touch. Sure a delicious one, complex, rather difficult to describe, but delicious. 170311
