Jultsu (1185) - 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.

Bomber. #20. 11.2%. (Whole Foods) Washington, DC. Enjoyed at the ISKTR 2014. Black colour with a tiny tan head.

tiong (7516) - 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."

3.8
Vaiz (4460) - 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.

monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
A very nice stout. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of vanilla, a bit of coconut and coffee. Taste has lots of vanilla upfront, with a nice slightly bitter finish. Nice and complex. Had on tap at the brewery.

2.8
Ngejo (1000) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - AUG 22, 2014
Tap. Black, minimal head, tan foam, very bitter, light sweetness, full body, sticky, average carbonation, & long finish.
