This was a nice surpirse, to say the least. The Liberty Gastropub in Charlotte grabbed a hold of what they said was the only keg in North Carolina. Don't think it's even available for the public. But anyway . . . had this with a Bitter Chocolate Torte with Burnt Caramel
Ice Cream & Flaky Sea Salt. what a combination. Could not even tell how strong of a stout this really is. Very creamy and chocolately, one of my top favorites ever for the style. Worth getting your hands on.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: Black. Dark brown head that goes away quickly. Bottle has a great label and is trimmed with red foil.
Smell: Chocolate and Coffee. The alcohol makes its presence know as well.
Taste: Boozy. Wonderful chocolate flavor with some sweetness. I pick up more of the coffee as well as some bitterness on the finish. The Alcohol is in your face on the fist taste, but fades a bit once your palate becomes more accustomed to it.
Mouthfeel: Full. Maybe a bit oily.
Overall: Terrific Beer! Although a bit upfront with the alcohol, the flavor makes this one a definite must try.

This beer is a beast! the monster clocks in at 15.5% ABV and it hides it pretty well. The beer is thick as motor oil, has a subtle roasty taste combined with cocoa and maybe molasses. If you are a stout lover you have to visit this beer. Avery has done an outstanding job with this mega brew!
Bottom Line: Darn good stout!
