Batch Number 1...12 oz bottle split with steepH2O. Upon first sip, he smiles. This is right in your wheelhouse, I say. This constructed my wheelhouse he replies. How far is Avery? he asks....Ah, Boulder he muses while stroking his beard. Steep is in love. Appreciatons go out to Leschkie for the opportunity. Thank you Kurtis!
Pours an oily evil
Smells of molotov raisin cocktail...just one pissed off beer
The respective wives had their faces turned inside out by a single sip and this while actually drinking bourbon. Hot, hot, heat...just a shit ton of char and bourbon. This I what I wish bourbon tasted like says Steep....though I would drink a fifth a night. Ol' Uncy Jake just wants to eat through the galss and leaves a noticeable film...a partially developed Polaroid.
Chris loves this...if Steven Tyler is any guide this is what a Flaming Moe should taste like. Plan on spending some time with Uncle Jake, he simply does not allow short visits.

1803rd Review on BA
Bottle to Avery Snifter
App- This right out of the gate was one of the more dense and black stouts I have seen. A lush pour with a creamy look behind it with a dark brown head that was a bit ringed. The edges were dark brown and the inside was a lighter tan.
Smell- This had a lot going on in the nose. A big chocolate bomb with a good amount of oak, vanilla and some oats with a big amount of whispy booze.
Taste- A very sweet drinking stout. A big amount of molasses and bourbon with some sweeter vanilla on the first sip. To me this was a bigger and sweeter version of Mephistopheles. This was a bit one dimensional to me and over the top with booze vs. layered.
Mouth- A good medium body. A bit thin for the ABV and size of this beer. A fairly creamy almost thin medium carbonation. A good amount of sweet dark fruits remain on the finish.
Drink- Good beer, wanted and expected more of this one. As I mentioned. A bit one dimensional with more bourbon and molasses vs a backing flavor.
