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.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
S: wow! this smells amazing! i get a fair amount of bourbon, and oak upfront, but not in an overpowering way. roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits, coffee. simply incredible.
A: great appearance. pours jet black like motor oil, good head for such a high alcohol beer. deep tan.
T: this is delicious! soft bourbon, oak, vanilla followed up dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. no taste of the alcohol. dark chocolate lingers on the palate after each sip
M: thick and creamy! just like a barrel aged stout should be.
O: this is incredible! this is now one of my favorite beers! its a shame its $15 for 12 oz. the price is the only flaw!
