This is a fantastic beer I wish was produced every year. The deep dark pour with a bit of roseish cola type head looked great. The smell of the roasted stout with the berries was fantastic and the taste followed. The only knock on this beer was a bit of a thin mouthfeel which was a bit unexpected based upon the pour. This is about as good as it gets. I wish I had another bottle to cellar as I would love to see how the flavors blend when the berries fade a bit ... ISO?

Beer # 1000!!
On tap for $6 for a 6 oz. pour. My lucky day
A: Pours a pitch black color with a minimal tan head. Leaves some sticky film on the way down the glass
S: Quite a bit of jammy and fruity notes up front with the classic BCBS tones underneath. Alcohol hidden very well behind the dark roasted malts and chocolate syrup-like sweetness
T: Follows the nose. The jammy notes come out leading the charge, quickly followed by the mellow and subdued BCBS notes. Very nice rye barrel character, and again, the alcohol is hidden very well
M: Full bodied with low carbonation. Slightly syrup-like but not over the top
O: The berries and rye barrel add a nice new dimension to the already well-dimensioned BCBS. Far too easy to drink given the abv and relative viscosity of the brew, but it does make a nice sipper. Definitely drinking very well right now, for those of you holding onto bottles. Glad that I very luckily stumbled onto this one on-tap when I did
Serving type: on-tap
