Received this in a recent BIF, I think, thanks Apaisncsu!
Pours motor oil black and manages a quarter inch mocha head that fades quickly. Not too surprising with the ABV.
Smell is there, pleasant, but not too powerful. Maybe my bottle got a little cold? Subtle bourbon and chocolate try to register with my senses but I don't come away overwhelmed.
Fortunately the taste makes up for this. Loads of dark fruits and dark chocolate wrapped up in a bourbon coating. Really a pleasant tasting brew.
Mouthfeel is, dare I say, chewy? Still some carbonation to move things along. The alcohol seems to greet you up front, announce its intentions early on but there is no noticeable burn, which is dangerous of course.
Really good brew on a cold night in January. Impressed.

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.
