4.5/5 rDev +2%
A- Pitch black body, foamy tan head that stays around for a unexpectedly long time.
S- Huge sweet bourbon, caramel, sweet sugary syrup, hints of oak, roasted malts.
T- Big bourbon sweetness, very sugary, big caramel notes, just enough wood presence, some chocolate. Absolutely huge flavor.
M- Full bodied, medium carbonation, lingering bourbon sweetness left behind in the mouth.
O- Just a huge, robust, thick bourbon stout that dominates the taste buds. Reminds me of BCBS with the huge flavor.

Not sure when/where I first had this. This review is for a recent tasting at City Tap House, Philly, PA.
Viscous black pour, with a small brown head that sank to a wispy layer of bubbles, some minor lacing clinging to the glass for a second or two when swirled. Nice big stouty aroma, dark malts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, barrel notes. The taste was good, but didn't quite live up to the aroma, rich malts, mostly sweet with a background roasty bitterness, bourbon-soaked oak with a dash of vanilla and toasted coconut, notes of dark dried fruits and a hint of smokiness. Body was on the fuller side of medium, robust mouthfeel, and pretty strong with booze, as you might expect for a 14+% beer (not unusual for Avery). Doesn't quite stack up to some of the bigger names in the world of barrel aged stouts, but in and of itself, this is still a very good brew.

Smells like deep, deep roasty espresso with a shot of Hershey's syrup and a cherry on top. Tastes much the same. Maybe even sweeter than BCBS, with more fruit too. I'm getting grapes, cherry and a ton of dark fruit. A little whiskey around the edges.
As much as the roasty notes factored into the nose, they take a back seat to big fruit sweetness on the palate. Some chocolate ice cream too. This beer is BIGGG. Clings to your mouth like syrup. It's almost a little too sweet and I'm begging for some char. Best to treat this one like a dessert beer.
