COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Son of a Baptist is an 8% ABV imperial stout. It is not barrel aged like its father, Big Bad Baptist; instead its flavor profile was designed to highlight the complex and often unique flavors of small batch coffees. Instead of sourcing a coffee that would play well in a beer we sought out creative and innovative roasters, then asked them which beans they’re passionate about. Each resulting release of Son of a Baptist is widely different depending on the coffee selected. Some are fruity and sweet with notes of jam and chocolate, others are rich and earthy with a big roasted finish. Each limited release will return to the Roaster’s home market where the beer and the coffee can be sampled side by side.

tmoreau (4988) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2018
Shared, distributor rep donated, 12 oz. can poured to snifters displaying a black/brown hue, with a presentable layer of brownish tan froth that reduced to a persistent ring with film, and some foamy spots of lacing. The nose was roasted, earthy, coffee & cocoa. Medium bodied, the taste was similar notes, with thinning texture that followed the low carbonation, somewhat hidden alcohol presence, and roasted & earthy bitterness. Straight forward, no frills.

Pours an opaque dark brown with moderate tan head that lasts and leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of roasted malts and chocolate, with some coffee overtones. Taste is slightly sweet. Body is medium to full with a creamy mouthfeel and no alcohol bite. I thought this was more like a milk stout than an imperial stout, but enjoyed it thoroughly.

tennisjoel (1522) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2018
Excellent aroma with high quality coffee in the foreground and faint chocolate and lactose beneath. Flavor of coffee with a well placed pepper bite. Love this beer. Possibly the best of the baptist series.

Tmoney99 (15415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2018 Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

Pours thick black with essentially zero head. Aroma is coffee, roast and some more coffee. Taste is light chocolate, moving to heavy espresso and smoke. Finish is dark coffee. A coffee lovers beer, for sure.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2018 4oz sample part of the Baptist flight at Epic Brewing in Denver. Black pour, smells of strong coffee. Tastes the same as it smells, strong black coffee. Good coffee beer.
