Just ungodly harsh and boozy....coffee notes meagerly call out while being punished unmercifully by the long arm of overly oaked Boozesaurus. Nearer shots than beer. A rough ride my friends.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Thin khaki collar.

Smell - Boozy. Milk chocolate. Bourbon. Lots of vanilla.

Taste - Holy crap it's boozy. Bourbon. Coffee. Booze. Very sweet, but alcohol masks a lot of the sugar. Hefty alcohol burn.

Mouthfeel - Extremely boozy. Heavy. Sweet. Kinda rough.

Overall - This was unpleasantly boozy.

Messy and very hot. Some time definitely needed on this one.

Falling Rock was pouring this one tonight. What a pour! Black and luscious, creamy head and soft. Nice. Reddish hints on the rim. Oooh-la-la...

Coffee. Black rich coffee in the nose. That's it.

Coffee again in the taste. This time, though, it's accompanied by black plum and a bit of roasted malt. Not much else to describe this one. It rivals KBS and is a bit thicker on the palate. Coffee. Coffee. The scourge of coffee

Easy drinking for a 16% whopper. Dangerous.

Nothing smooth about this beer at all. This sent my palate screaming for mercy begging me to drain pour it. Halfway through my glass I listened to it. Just way too bitter and acidic, not a pleasant drinking experience at all. There is no comparison here to BCS / BCBCS IMO.

Big coffee flavor but was almost too much for a beer.

This was far too boozy for me. I couldn't enjoy the coffee flavors.

Drinking crazy hot. Lots of chocolate, bit of coffee, good barrel, burns like whiskey.

Bottled 1/16 drank 5/27/16. Nose is a nice mix of coffee, bourbon, and a fair amount of alcohol heat. Taste is a touch of coffee and roasted malt bit dominated by alcohol heat. Pretty underwhelming for an Avery beer. Their barrel aged and high alcohol beers are typically really good but this one falls short of the mark for me.

Doesn't live up to the hype. Taste just average, quite disappointing. And I like Avery.
