4.61/5 rDev +1.5%
A: opaque brown pour into motor oil black in a snifter; shiny black surface slightly edged with thin dark foam.
S: rich black malt molasses and bright berry tartness
T: many flavors mingle freely, from the dark black malt base, bringing dark chocolate syrup and cold espresso and blackstrap molasses, to the juicy and tart berries, bursting with dark, sweet, and tart jam flavors, spiked with rye whiskey vapors and spice
M: smooth and medium-heavy, moderately dense, nice tartness
O: an exceptional double stout - wonderful use of sweet tart dark berry to complement the sophistication of the whiskey barrel aging; no better base beer than BCBS.

4.46/5 rDev -1.8%
A - Jet black, minimal mocha head that dissipates quickly.
S - Strawberry pop-tarts. Berry dominates the nose. You get hints of chocolate and bourbon.
T - Wow. Mixed berry cobbler with a chocolate, but not bitter finish. Deep rich berry flavor that isn't tart or artificial at all. The bourbon gives it another layer of sweetness that is different. Very delicious.
M - I would have liked it to be thicker but it was ok. Not thin by any means.
O - Best variant I've had and best fruit stout ive ever had. This beer drinks incredible right now.
