a-deep black with no chance for light to get through this beer. Poured out with a one finger head, that faded away after a few minutes. Some lacing along the sides of the NBB globe it was poured into.
s-big malts, wood, booze, and chocolate. The alcohol is really big here now, but it does not hide too much of the good nose on this beer.
t-hits with huge coffee and chocolate up front. There is some alcohol here, but there is not pronounced burn at all. There are a lot of dark fruit notes too, some dark cherry something else that I cannot place a finger on. The beer is on the sweet side, and matches up with the wood. You can tell that this was barrel aged and the whisky comes out as it warms. The beer is smooth, but packs a lot into each sip. There a few tannic notes as the beer warms. Age should take that right out.
m-on point. This is not a watery thin beer at all. There is a medium to full mouth feel depending on the temperture of the beer. The sweet hangs on to the tongue after the beer is down.
o-this beer has huge cellering potential. I cannot wait until next year, and years after to keep trying this beer. There is so much in this beer that is just waiting to come out. The alcohol mellowing out will help these to come forward. This is a sipping beer, best shared with friends over something dark and chocolate like. Great job Avery, keep hitting these out of the park!

Re-writing this review as I've finally gotten my hands on a full bottle. Initial review was of 2013 vintage at GABF. Current review is of the 2014 vintage.
A - Pitch black, opaque
S - Sweet, mild bourbon on the nose
T - The sweetness just overwhelms me with this brew, it reminds me of Dark Lord and this is what I can't get over. Quite boozy, but so damn sweet and sugary. This really lowers the score on this beer for me...
M - Solid, thick rich.
Overall, I just cannot get over the sweetness of this brew... it punches me in the face and knocks me out. It's not at all a bad beer, but it's not something I would put in my top 250.
