Re-named BA Meph Addict.
Our very own Parker, of the cartoon and cat loving variety, created this cult classic character back in our 17th season. Appearing in several episodes under another stage name that was deemed inappropriate, our executive producers and editors decided that a name change and further character development—a 4-month Hiatus in bourbon barrels—were necessary to satisfy our most ardent and demanding viewers.

Yep, making sure this is the right one...batch 1, 17.81%, stout with coffee aged in Bourbon Barrels. Bottled Oct 28, 2014 in a 12 oz bottle. Poured in a Mad Elf tulip glass. Pours black with significant brown head...head makes cool paisley swirlies. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted malts. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasted malts, bourbon, brown sugar, milk chocolate, wood, coffee, minerals, earth. Overall very rich, bold, complex, big and a touch rough but overall balanced and enticing. Alcohol...yes, it’s there, but the coffee aroma and rich taste of chocolate and pure yumminess stand out wonderfully for a late nighter and/or potential desert (or dessert) drink.

Draft at Pour it Black. Pours near black with a big light brown head. Aroma is more barrel than Meph, , and less coffee! Also dark chocolate, pepper, oak. Flavor is dark chocolate, coffee. A touch of licorice, oak and rum in the finish.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Very dark oily brown, odd tanny lacing and a lean ringed tan head. Nose is boozy, coconut and full on bourbon liquory. Initial taste is gritty tobacco, firm sweetness. Carbonation is soft and then a real boozy burn on the mouthfeel. Finish is neat, clean terse boozy and lingers rich and tinny bitterness some were in there.

Sampled at GABF. In the tasting glass was near black with a tan head. Nose of chocolate and coffee and a ton on bourbon. Medium plus in body. The flavor is really rich and the bourbon is p;powerful but overall it works. .Finishes bitter and boozy. Great beer.

Bottled Oct. 28, 2014, drunk in May 2015. Boozy barleywine aroma. Flavor caramel, vanilla, oak. Hot, as I was told it would be. Coffee coming through very mildly for me. Nail polish remover. This beer is harsh. I just went 15 minutes without sipping it or even thinking much about it. Flavor and aroma more straight bourbon than bourbon barrel. Hint of chalky bitter chocolate. Surprised at how little coffee I taste. Flavor does mellow a bit as it warms.
