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.

12 oz bottle, PDT 10-28-14- Pours pitch black with a thin mocha colored crackly head that reduces leaving a collar. Aroma is bourbon, wood, chocolate, charcoal, coffee less so than i would have thought, sweet and dessert like. The taste is coffee, chocolate, wood, bourbon, vanilla, alcohol burn. The alcohol is noticeable, at this percentage it’s unavoidable, but smooth for the high abv. I honestly wish there was even more coffee here, the barrel has well blended and balanced everything nicely though. Good beer, for the most part what i expected.

Dégustée au RBBSG 2015. Cheers all! Noire et peu mousseuse. Mince anneau brunâtre visible à la surface, sans plus. Arômes de gros malts rôtis, de réglisse noire, de mélasse, de cuir et de fumée. Le vieillissement en barrique rend la bière quelque peu acide sans que le tout soit démesurément alcoolisé ou boisé, malgré l’intensité des saveurs. Je détecte du marshmallow, de la crème brûlée vanillée et du sucre d’orge sur un corps sans pétillance et moelleux. Longue finale et amère en fin de bouche. Merci pour la dégustation!

Bottle from beerlover_ben @ RBBSG 2015. Many thanks! Black colour, almost no foam. Sweet nose of bourbon and vanilla. Thick body. Also coffee roastiness. Alcoholic but not bad.

Thanks to Beerlover_Ben! 355 ml. bottle sampled @ “Hot & Sweaty RBBSG 2015”. 17.81 % ABV. Bottled on 28/10/2014. Black, some mocha bubbles on the sides. Nose is huge bourbon & very thick roasted coffee, heavy on the roast, molasses, syrup & sugar. Taste is huge bitter roast, very bitter coffee with a pretty big alcohol punch, thick bourbon, vanilla barrel, obscured a bit by the very heavy roast, touch molasses, caramel, faint vanilla way in the back, bitter black chocolate,… Quite thick bodied. Delivers exactly what it promised. Too bad I am more into sweet coffee as opposed to the bitter stuff featured here otherwise I would have rated this higher.

Happy birthday America! 12oz bottle poured into BCBS stemware. Aroma is booze, caramel, vanilla and roasted coffee. Flavor is much of the same the finish is black coffee intertwined with vanilla and caramel. That’s good stuff.

Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. Strong stuff this one. Full thick taste of coffee, vanilla and some cacao. Very boozy, but quite nice.

Draft/bottle. I know I’ve had this a couple times, just thought was same as normal. Black pour with tan head. Sweet chocolate, marshmallow, roasted and coffee aromas. Flavors are dark malt, chocolate, vanilla and a ton of coffee. Boozy.

Reviewing a 6 month old bottle Pours a pitch black body, head is chocolate colored and 1/4 inch thick. Head lasted for awhile but sadly faded after awhile, lacing was above average. Smell is big on roasted and burnt malts. freshly brewed espresso also comes through. Chocolate, sweet vanilla, and bourbon are in the mix too. No hops present, the aromas or strongly whisky and coffee. Taste is similar to smell, lots of bourbon and bitter coffee. Sweet fudge counteracts the booze, but theres a slight alcohol burn in aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy, and well carbonated. Head contributed a nice foam momentarily but unfortunately it didn’t stay. Whiskey coats the mouth, actually stings a bit but kinda like it. Overall this beer is definitely one of a kind. Pushes the boundaries of a beer regarding abv and mouthfeel. Best way I can describe it is the coffee stout version of Utopias. Really enjoyed the beer but alcohol needs to be pulled back a tiny bit to push it to legendary status.

Pours a two finger dark tan head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights. light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Bourbon nose and flavor follows with bourbon, coffee and sweet malt. Decent imp stout. Very high ABV is mostly hidden. Serious price at $15.95 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.
