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.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 21, 2014
On tap @ Strong Ale 2014. Black pour with a finger of tan foam. Woah, smells like bourbon. High boost aroma on this one. Still has a lot of coffee and sort of a spicy whiskey and coffee note to it. A lot of chocolate and fudge. Flavor is kind of harsh in terms of the bourbon and booze character. Lots of coffee, but not as much as the regular version. Hot fudge, roasted malt, and spicy oak and coffee beans.

bhensonb (12968) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle from Marcus. Pours very dark brown, very, with a transient extremely dark tan head. Aroma of coffee and bourbon. Full bodied, but it quickly thins as the carbonation leaves. Heat doesn’t seem an issue til it hits the gullet. Flavor is coffee, bourbon, smooth burnt malt, and then heat. But it’s still just a flavor component. It goes pretty chocolate in the long finish. Pretty cool ale!

Tmoney99 (12415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, woody and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a thick rich smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet chocolate bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet smooth finish of moderate to long duration. Another standout brew.

Benzai (11364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG 2015. Opaque black color, small light brown head. Aroma and taste are malts, roast, dark malts, bourbon, vanilla, firm alcohol, some bitter. Full body and carbonation. Strong but nice! 9-4-8-3-16. -- Re-rate July 30th 2015. Bottle @ home shared with Thompson and Countbeer. Opaque pitch black color, small light brown head. Aroma is malts, bourbon, alcohol. Taste malts, bourbon, alcohol, some roast, some vanilla, initially a bit sweetish, aftertaste has some bitter. Intense and a bit too much I think. 7-4-7-3-15. (clearly I had more to drink prior to trying this beer when I rated it the first time, so I’ve averaged the scores)
