This is another great beer from Avery. It’s based on their Mephistopheles’ Stout (Day 22), to which they added coffee and then aged in bourbon barrels. Just like Mephistopheles’, it’s dark and boozy, but there is more coffee and the flavor from the bourbon barrels is evident. It is almost like a coffee liquor, and it took me a couple hours just to finish one 12 ounce bottle, because this one clocks in at 17.5%! It was a good way to spend a Saturday evening.
Now that we’ve gotten past the whole Trumpcare debacle, it’s time to refocus on the Trump-Russia situation (before they begin their whole tax reform distraction. I can’t find any mainstream sources confirming this yet, but there are rumors that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has struck a deal with the FBI and is helping them build their case against Trump and/or his administration. If this is true, it’s a big deal and could mean big trouble for Trump.
