Dessert in a bottle. Tastes like sweet berry pie.

I should have cellared this heavy bad boy for more than 6 months. It drinks like hot fire! Heavy booze, but it does have nice heavy malt start covered almost immediately with booze haha. But it is what is suppose to be, so I should have aged it for about 3 years haha let the flavors come to the top :)

OMG this beer was so delightful. The berry taste added to the BCBS added a wonderful full flavor that is hard to find. Definitely in my top 5 beers ever list, if you see it you must get it.
