Had on tap. Pours dark with no real head. Smelled dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Very smooth tasting. For a high ABV I did not get an alcohol taste - but did feel it later. Nice balance of chocolate and coffee. Not an overpowering bourbon or whiskey taste to it. I did get the feeling in my head later that night and next day that I get whenever I drink even small amounts of whiskey though. Unsure why as this would not appear to be enough. I did tick it down a notch for that, but for others that never have this affect it will be fine. Great beer that I am glad the bartender stated I need to try.

December 30th, 2014 - Ending our day at Epic Brewing is the Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout, ordered and anticipated to be an explosive cap to the line of tasters. Dark and placid like a still lake at night, the aroma is filled with heavy coffee and cream, with odds and ends reminiscent of espresso. The taste is incredibly smooth and velvety, with coffee and chocolate notes snaking around on the soft mouthfeel. A little salt is present too, giving the chocolate a more Mexican chocolate type flavor, with I find very likable.

Black pour, brown head. Roasty coffee aroma with espresso and a bit of chocolate. Flavor has lots of chocolate and roast; delicious! Very rich and chewy mouthfeel.

Bouteille. Une bière énorme et peu subtile. À l’image de son nom faut croire. Robe molle et lourde, noire comme du goudron. Arômes robustes de réglisse noire, de malts torréfiés, de grains de café entiers et de fumée. Je peine à en déceler la moindre subtilité. De la vanille? Ah bon. En bouche le liquide est franchement aminci par cette barrique de whiskey qui affirme sa présence avec autorité. La vanille me semble provenir de la barrique plutôt que d’une gousse de vanille ajoutée. Plutôt dure à boire, cette bière est loin d’être mauvaise, simplement sans subtilité.

Piwo koloru czarnego z jasno beżową szybko opadającą pianą. W aromacie potężna kawa, gorzka czekolada, praliny, wanilia, kakaowe ciasto nasączone likierem, gdzieś z tyłu przemykają nuty mokrego drewna i whiskey. Zapach jest bogaty. W smaku kawa, gorzka czekolada, kakaowe ciastka, wanilia, delikatny posmak suszonych owoców, goryczka na finiszu. Po przełknięciu pojawia się w ustach smak mokrej beczki i whiskey. Podsumowując to piwo jest MEGA! Jeden z lepszych imperialnych stoutów jakie piłem.

Chocolate, galleta, fruto negro, bizcocho, nueces, es un brownie líquido. En boca se añade un sabor licoroso con un final tostado.

SinH4 (4794) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle, many thanks Max! Black color with beige head. Aroma is bell peppers, espresso, black chocolate. Taste is the same, but a bit chalky and spicy as well. Fine-bubbled carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Very nice, but the flavour does not hold up to the aroma.

anstei (2248) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is strong coffee, green peppers, chalk. Body is heavy, strongly bitter, intense coffee. Almost a bit dusty. Soft carbonation and smooth texture. Boozy, long palate. Very good!

650ml bottle @ the office. Release #73 Blue Copper 12.7%
Pours opaque dark brown with no head. Nose is molasses and sweet cocoa. Flavour has a fair amount lot of coffee with a subtle hint of chocolate. It drinks a bit thin with a slight boozyness.

Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 29, 2017
#80 Negra de espuma marrom de média formação e persistência. No aroma café verde sobressai sobre o Bourbon e amadeirado, álcool bem evidente, faltou equilíbrio. No paladar mais café mas agora de média torrefação, médio dulçor e leve acidez. Licorosa, média carbonatação. Final fica mais balanceado com uma boa mistura de café verde com torrado, Bourbon continua no segundo plano adicionando complexidade.
