Black Brewing staple Bao Bao returns more petulant than ever as Bad Boy Bao Bao, an imperial milk stout.
As with the original, lactose creates a full mouthfeel that plays well with the milk chocolate characters; however, this Bad Boy deviates with additions of vanilla and cinnamon. The latter evokes an almost cola vibe as proceedings turn considerably dry mid-palate as cocoa becomes more evident and cinnamon more pronounced as it warms.
The result is a very effective imperial pastry milk stout and one that should calm any political leader with a finger on a launch button.
