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.

12 oz bottle; Batch 1, 17.81% ABV. Aroma consists of chocolate, leather, coffee, coconut, bourbon, licorice. Pours opaque black with a two finger dark tan head that reduces to a collar and skiff of foam after a few minutes. Taste is sweet (not cloying) and boozy with a bitter finish. Along with all aroma descriptors, I’m getting some cough drop, a faint vegetal character that isn’t displeasing at all, which is unusual for me. Velvety mouthfeel, full body, tight carbonation. Awesome!

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Pours black with a rich cinnamon brown head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee mostly with hints of bourbon and wood. Bourbon is certainly present in the taste with booze, vanilla, oak, and coconut flavors complemented by rich roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Some dark fruit even makes its way to the party. Awesome. As expected there is plenty of bitterness and warmth that lingers on the palate. An outstanding barrel-aged imperial stout.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 At 2012 Avery Strong Ale Fest. Black with a thin tan head. Big outlandish aroma of dark roast coffee, bakers chocolate, vanilla-oak, with a touch of pecan-like nuttiness and caramel. Taste is gigantic and palate slaughtering. Dark chocolate, dark coffee, oak, lots of french vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar-bourbon, finishing with big fat tones of oak, coffee, and chocolate. Lots of barrel booziness but also lots of mocha java sweetness.

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!

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.

Truly a marvelous ber. Lots of chocolate, coffee and bourbon are the main characteristics. Subtle Molasses notes. Strong alcohol notes, although very well balanced given the %. Quite complex and delicious.

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a very dark brown with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast, chocolate, booze, wood. Slick mouthfeel, light booze, strong roast, cocoa, dark chocolate, real impressive.
