COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

czar (5352) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
sample @ EBF 2015. very dark brown with a low beige cap, minimal retention and lacing for its abv. fragrant bourbon barrels with vanilla peaking, dense roasted malts - some roasted acidity - well integrated though; burnt rock candy sugar, raisiny spiciness, booze - not off, just warming enough. low carbonation, full body, warming coffee and cream finish. pretty nice sippa.

BrettTaylor (630) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2015
Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a very dark brown with slightly lighter head; head dissipates down somewhat, but sticks around a long while. Aroma is full of bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is initially dominated by the bourbon/vanilla notes, but then there is mocha and some very dark malt bitterness. Surprisingly carbonated - much fizzier than I expected. Long mocha finish.

Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Aroma is coffee, roast, bourbon, sweet. Taste is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon. Hides the alcohol very well. One of the better coffee stouts I’ve had.

kkleu357 (527) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2015
From notes on 3/30/15 On tap at Avery. Awesome. The chocolate and bourbon are much more prominent than the coffee. Still good amount of coffee comes through. How do they make an 18% ABV beer taste so smooth.

Heavy roasted coffee aromas, booze, bourbon, milk chocolate, toasted almonds. Black with a lasting small tan head. Initial chocolatey malt sweetness, hot with whiskey, like a boiler-maker. Full bodied, booze runs hot throughout and long after the finish.
