Bottle shared at game night. Velvety, nearly black, with a finely bubbled brown head. Beautiful balance between barrel, cocoa, and spice, with undertones of coconut, vanilla, and licorice. Creamy smooth, rounded and not at all boozy. Delicious.

kerenmk (4664) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Toms place. Thanks DSG. Black with tan film. Dry coffee, roasty, a little vanilla and faint sherry, allspice and then chocolate in the nose. Bitter, vanilla, some walnuts, peppery and some vanilla in the mouth. Full body with plenty of bittersweet chocolate, chili finish and a little bit of fizz. Quite awesome.

So this is an odd one. A ten day trip to Seattle, spent the whole trip bashing through IPAs, finish the town and wedding part and go to the wifes cousins for the final day, arrive for late lunch and Gopal says hey want a beer and I say sure and he goes into the fridge and pulls out...Epic Big Bad Baptist! I mean...for a casual lunch with the kids...crazy days. So we shared the bomber. It was awesome. I normally hate everything with added coffee and bourbon barrels and all that artificial added flavour, but this was nice. Thick black oily. The flavours just melded together, some dark bitter cocoa and a hint of espresso and some sweetness of vanilla and a very good bitter base beer. A bit boozy and hot maybe. But really good.
