A - Pours like oil, viscous, with a one finger tight head of espresso carbonation.
S - Sweet molasses, oak, dark fruits, vanilla and a good amount of bourbon.
T - Bold dark chocolate and light coffee at first. Develops into a sweeter stout with brown sugar, molasses and vanilla peaking through.
M - Full bodied, low carbonation. Just a rich body, smooth, velvety and for the abv (16.53%) it's not particularly hot.
O - It errs on the side of a sweeter stout, but it's definitely packed full of goodness.

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.
