4.35/5 rDev +10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pouredf rom the bomber into a tall Arrogant Bastard glass. The color is dark chocolate brown with a tan head on top. The head has mad crazy retention. You can slap it, kick it, curse at it, say things about its momma, but the head is not going away. Very nice. Asit dwindles down the head leaves nice rings around the edge of the glass.
Smell: Very sweet and malty smell. Some roasty notes as well.
Taste: Whoa. This different from other RIS's I've had. First flavor is a sour and bitter roastiness that settles in the middle of my tongue. It's got a very appealing sweetness to the roastiness. It's sharp but not offensive. There is a strong molasses and carmel character to this beer. Also a nice brown sugar note. The malt profile hides under a well done hop bitterness. There is also a nice warmth to the alcohol
Mouthfeel: Clean and sweet on the palate with improving qualities as it warms up.
Drinkability: The flavors come together well and make this a very enoyable beer. At 13% ABV it is something I will enjoy but only sparingly. Well done and well hopped rom Avery.

2011 vintage. Poured on tap and served in a snifter, the beer is jet black, with subtle ruby highlights, and a dense, foamy, dark tan head. Aromas of coffee and booze forward, with old world fruit sweetness, woody notes, and an underlying coffee bitterness. Beast. Flavors are a blast of rich sweetness on the tongue, with black strap molasses leading the charge, followed by cocoa nibs, bitter coffee, vanilla, oak spice, and a ribbon of booze. Holy hell, this is big! Smooth and velvety in mouth, with a rich, darkly sweet aftertaste of molasses and brown sugar. Slick, smooth finish. Wow...this is a greay beer!

4.06/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice creamy tan head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and some dark fruit (mainly raisins).
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some sweet roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, a slight nuttiness, vanilla and raisins.
Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.
