Bottled on June 27, 2013. Batch number 2. Obviously still a very young stout but I had to crack it open after tasting it at GABF.
A- Dark as could be. The small head it poured sunk into the darkness of this huge stout. Stir the beer and it'll leave thin legs of alcohol on the sidewalls of your glass.
S- Charred coffee beans, vanilla, cocoa, roasted malts, licorice. Slight booze aroma.
T- strong licorice throughout the sip. The coffee and roasted malts along with the vanilla give it a complex balance. everything in this stout works. nothing overwhelming and a boozy finish reminds you that you're drinking a 16+ abv beer.
M- nice a full body. creamier then I imagined.
O- For such a big, young stout I am very impressed with what Avery has done here. Give it a year or two in the cellar and it would be a perfect stout. Buy 2, one to age, one to drink right away. You wont be disappointed. you might even catch a slight buzz from 1 bottle.

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.
