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.

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.

adnielsen (9464) - 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 didn’t really come through all that much and the coffee didn’t seem as fresh as with most batches of Meph Addict.

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 that’s A-OK by me!

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Pizza Port Strong Ale Fest ][ $5 ][ Mini Snifter ][ 12.5.14 ]
>> Pours black with good coffee foam. Nose is green jalapeños, green coffee, sugar. Taste is bitter, harsh, very spicy and boozy, papery finish. Just sort of a dud unfortunately.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small brown head. Nose brings out shitloads of coffee upfront, along with bourbon barrels and some light roast. Flavour is complex, with loads of coffee upfront, followed by roasted malt and subdued bourbon. Very complex and rich, and well-balanced. Excellent extreme beer.
