  • Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout #31

     

    Brewed on December 4, 2013. Packaged September 13, 2014.

    This year’s first release of Big Bad Baptist features Salt Lake City’s Charming Beard Coffee. The Guatemala roast has a strong presence in the nose but is mellow and smooth without the typical roasted bitterness of previous releases. This allows the cocoa to shine through as well as the bourbon and oak. Release #31 is very well balanced, complex and perhaps too smooth.
