EPIC Triple Barrel Big Bad Baptist

What the brewers say

“The trio of barrel-aged imperial stout, barrel-aged Colombia Risaralda coffee, and barrel-aged coconut, plus an added dimension from using a percentage of rum barrels comes together in a ridiculously perfect way.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Large coconut, moderate coffee, big chocolate, big bourbon, moderate rum, light vegetal notes, light alcohol notes, and touch of burnt roast.”

Flavor: “Tastes like a piece of coffee cake with rum poured over it. Finish is pretty dry, possibly due to oak tannins and/or the coffee. Coconut and cocoa nibs round things out without sticking out.”

Overall: “This is a big beer with a lot going on. It may seem a bit disjoint at times, but let it warm up a touch and it’ll change again. A lot of the super-

intense flavors.”
