On tap into a snifter at the brewery.

A-The beer arrives with only a thin collar of foam, which is not surprising given the ABV. It is nearly black and opaque. There is an oily sheen on the surface and it leaves "legs" of alcohol on the glass as I drink, but no lacing. Nothing awe-inspiring, but it looks like a high-ABV coffee stout.

S-The aroma is very heavy on the coffee. Unlike most beers of this ilk, however, this one lacks the espresso-like (or coffee ground like) bitterness and instead smells just like a delicious cup of drip coffee. Very smooth. The alcohol is warming, but not quite hot. Underlying roasted flavors are also smooth and mild for a beer this big. There is some dark chocolate, as well.

T-The taste is all dark roast coffee...again, its not bitter espresso roast, but smooth drip coffee and it simply amazing. There is some dark berry fruit, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, lightly smokey flavors, as well as a warming booze. I do not taste the 16% ABV; this thing is just so smooth.

M-The feel is medium to full body with lower than average carbonation. It is heavy, however, and the feeling contributes to the smoothness.

O-This is another great beer from Avery. I just cannot get over how rich the coffee flavor is without any of the bitter coffee-ground flavor that big, boozy, coffee stouts often impart. The feel is also close to perfect for the flavor profile. If this beer has a shortcoming, it is the smell, which is a bit simple and not quite up to the taste.
