Some kind stranger allowed me a nice serving from his glass at Avery. Whoever you are, thanks! Big, huge beer. All bourbon, chocolate and coffee band thatís A-OK by me!

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Black appearance with a dark brown head. Fairly rich coffee, light caramel, very light bourbon, roasty chocolate malty aroma. Thick mouth feel. Rich dark chocolate, fairly bitter, roasty coffee, caramel, very light bourbon flavor with a burning, boozy finish. I was really looking forward to this one and I was a bit let down. The bourbon didnít really come through all that much and the coffee didnít seem as fresh as with most batches of Meph Addict.

arminjewell (5717) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2012
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark oily black pour with creamy dark tan head, aroma brought big notes of coffee, chocolate, milk and dark chocolate notes, slight hints of bourbon and vanilla but not much, some nice dark fruits laced throughout as well. Taste is a nice mix of big espresso and roasted coffee moving into sweet bourbon and vanilla notes, nice chocolate and dark fruit notes, slight molasses finishes fairly sweet but the roasted coffee notes help balance. It is a great beer, but not much different than the regular.

Man, what a search. On tap at Avery during 2012 GABF week. It runs out as I am in line! I run around scanning peopleís glasses in search of a soul to share- yes I did that. I almost gave up until one person offers it to me! Pours a totally black color, no head. A huge nose of bourbon and coffee. Of course, a similar flavor of massive coffee, smooth sweet barrel, actually this is understated despite being 16%. Drinkable.

Camons (5045) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2012
Tap @ Avery, doing the 10th Annual Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Pours black with a small offwhite head. Aroma of roasted malts, rich hard roasted coffee, caramel, light bourbon notes. Taste is malts, expresso, hard roasted coffee, caramel, light bourbon notes. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, light alcoholic finsh ( well its 16 % ) Coffee taste is more mellow than the normal Meph Addict, wich imo does it more balanced. Good one. 090312

On draft at Avery. Shared by a kind soul. I didnít search like Dak and Doug, but it was tempting in order to get more. Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Nose is big coffee, chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla. Flavor follows with fudgy chocolate, coffee, some light roast and a bit of vanilla and bourbon. Medium in body and for a bruiser of this size, itís delightful.
