potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2011 Draught. Boulder Strong Fest 2010. Black with orange tan head. Aroma is straight huge coffee...boom! and dark, dark bitter chocolates, a touch of vanilla and a touch of some dark ripe fruits like plum. Fuller body, but not as much as I’d expected but smooth, real smooth. Big coffee flavor covers booze nicely and some dark berry and plum still despite the coffee, although much less. Licorice I get from Meph is very hidden. Dry as hell.... I need water. Sticky, sticky! Awesome!

Ontap@DLD. Deep black pour with a tan head. Aroma is intense-coffee, roasted malt, dark fruit. Taste is Coffee x 2, roasted malt, a little vanilla, alcohol. High alcohol but nicely balanced with the other flavors. Creamy, tasty, glad it was available.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
(my 100th Imperial Stout rate) Tap at The Publican. I enjoyed this quite a bit. Pours a slick black with a creamy frothy tan head. Super roasty, tons of straight-up cold-press coffee! Tastes like Starbucks, ha, really it does, a bit too much booze in the aftertaste though. Body is slick creamy and fluffy.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2010
Sampled at the Tax Your Liver event @ Papago. Dark leather bordering onyx pour with a creamy latte head that finishes with a spot or two and a whispy swirl. This beer is as close to a shot of espresso I’ve ever had. Rich roasted coffee bean, vanilla, and a touch of honey. The aroma made my eyes roll back in my head and the flavor made me drool on the table (already had a few by then). Nice velvety mouthfeel. AMAZING!

On tap @ DLD. This comes off as a woodier version as well as a coffee intense stout. Very delicious, much like the original.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2010
Draft sample at Tax Your Liver With(out) Adam Avery at Papago Brewing. (Adam was sick and couldn’t make it but we still drank his beer) Pours a black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, huge espresso and burnt coffee grounds, roast, barley. Flavor is espresso, booze, roast. Very fresh coffee indeed, good stuff.

drewbeerme (3915) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2010
tap at publican, pours black with tan head, nose has big coffee notes. flavor is extremely roasty, sweet, and harsh alcohol coliding on the back of my palate at the same time. this really bothered me for some reason but everyone else there that night seemed to dig this. probably because they put lighter fluid in their coffee every morning.

dionysus (1475) - Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2010
On tap @ Papago for Tax Your Liver. Pour is dark brown-black with a thin beige scarf that never quite fully unravels but leaves some spotty lacing. When they say Meph with a generous amount of coffee, they definately mean GENEROUS. Aroma is huge roast coffee. Once that initial experience dies down, there is some vanilla, dark chocolate, leather and light coconut. At times, there is an almost "meaty" note, but it is quickly pushed back by the coffee. Flavor shows the same. Overall body is moderate to heavy sweet, full, and oily. Much like the moloch, this one was extremely well balanced. These are definately going to make me revisit some Avery stuff in the future.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
On tap at PP Solana a few weeks back. $7 a snifter. Worth it though. Pours black with a thin tan head that leaves specks of lace. Smells of coffee grounds and chocolate. Sweet overall. Tastes of coffee and chocolate, lots of big, sweet, dark chocolate or milk chocolate or both. Bitter coffee notes. Very nice, and potent! Full body, thick with good carbonation.

beernbourbon (1429) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 9, 2010
Tap at Publican. Pour is pure black with a circle of thin brown head. Aroma is not complicated but quite good: huge espresso and a subdued roasted malt. I like it a lot. Flavor is rich French roast coffee with notable brown sugar and lots of roasted malt. Nothing subtle here, but I still like it.
