Super stoked to try this. Purchased from Stearn's Liquor in Long Beach. Poured into Bruery tulip. Mild carbonation quickly dies as the beer is poured. This stuff sticks to the glass like oil. Looks like it too. It is black.
Smells nice. Hot booziness smell is present accompanied by dark fruits (figs, dates, etc.). Some bitter chocolate. Little bit of astringency.
Taste is pretty good. I've had boozier beers before. It's actually quite smooth and well balanced. The fruits and chocolates come through.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly decent. It's thick bodied but drinkable.
Overall, this is dangerous stuff. 17.42% and this drinkable when fresh? Wow. Cheers!

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.
