with a nice aggressive pour a huge caramel head was left and with each sip it clinged to the side of the glass like a demi-glace to a spoon (thats good).
Smell was a bit lacking compared to the taste but still a decent one. had nice notes of huge roast and vanillia coconut. alcohol was present but so little for this big of a beer.
Taste was almost perfect. great creamy roasty character with a luxurious vanilla background. I can feel the alcohol warmth as it goes down to the stomach but for that big of a beer its really well hidden. ive had 10% beers that are way more harsh that this one.
Overall I would kill this beer everynight with no problem and besides Black Tuesday 09 probably the best 17+% alcohol beer I've had. Really well made and I will be searching for more

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.
