COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Bad Baptista is inspired by traditional Mexican coffee, Café de Olla, which is served with cinnamon and piloncillo, an unrefined sugar. The Cinnamon adds another layer of complexity and accentuates the earthy character of Mexican Coffee, but more importantly, it captures the essence of a place and its culture. As beverage geeks we wanted to pay homage to that rich tradition and offer our unique take.

Big Bad Baptista is a combination of Vanilla, Cinnamon, Mexican coffee roasted by Blue Copper, and Solstice Chocolate cacao nibs. It’s luxurious to say the least, with a pleasant warming sensation generated by the cinnamon and alcohol. Enjoying the interplay of chocolate, malt, oak, and spice is the perfect way to spend a cool evening, with friends around a fire.

drsordr (2861) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Draft to taster at Cappy’s pour opaque black with thin tan head. Nose lovely big cinnamon, vanilla, hot chocolate, and dark chocolate. Taste cinnamon starts before it even hits your tongue. Cinnamon, buttercream icing, vanilla, and chocolate cake. Desert in a glass and quite yummy. Just a hint of woody barrel late. Spicy cinnamon finish.

klm1 (1844) - Bled/SF, - NOV 11, 2017
Pours oily black opaque with brown foamy head which transforms itself to a ring around glass edges. Mellow roasted grain, both by aroma & flavor: cinnamon, caramel, toasted toffee & coconut, intense chocolate, coffee, cacao, hot spices, vanilla, molasses, vanillin, gentle woody tannins, whisky alcohol warmth. Dry finish, thick body, very, very smooth texture, moderate carbonation. Amazing.

Bottle at SBWF. Pours black with a brown head. Huge spicy chocolate with cinnamon, coffee, cocoa, coconut. Very smooth. On the sweeter side. Like a liquid dessert, so well balanced flavors. Big, bold and delicious.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Sampled on draft at Tapped this beer poured a black color with a large creamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was strong cocoa, coffee and cinnamon-sugar. The flavor was amazingly strong cocoa powder, coffee, molasses and cinnamon-sugar. Incredibly long finish of cocoa and cinnamon that coats the tongue and will not leave. Thick and full body. Marvelous!!
