No. No. No. All kinds of no, my children. When Raul was baby Raul, you could toss him a candy cane and he would suck on the hot dog thang, no problem. But nowadays? Nope. Raul grewed up and he ain't into that ultra sweet, high fructose corn syrup artificial stuff. And Backyard Rye? AY dios mio! It's like someone mixed up some Nerds and a Ring Pop and threw it in a perfectly fine BCBS.

This is just rank. Peace!

Pour is jet black with a light caramel colored head. Nose has rich fudge with notes of charred wood and bourbon. Light tobacco note behind with a hint of the fruity sweet berries as it warms. The taste has a ton of sweetness. The rich malt is an afterthought in the flavor and the nice bourbon and wood notes in BCS struggle to even make an appearance. The sweet fruity berries are incredibly strong, overly sweet, albeit bright. Full bodied with soft carbonation and a hint chewy. The sweetness lingers.
