2013 release, 14.9%.
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
A- Jet black. a hint of khaki head dissipates quickly. No lacing, alchohol legs for days.
S- Bourbon, chocolate, roast, vanilla, oak, and some booze as well. Smells sooo good.
T- I have no idea where that 14.9% is hidden. There's a touch of booze, but not much. Heavy notes of chocolate and bourbon up front. Then the onslaught of complexity hits. Coffee, vanilla, raisins, dark cherry, molasses, toffee, and oak just wash over you. Taste lingers long after the sip.
M- There's some warmth from the alcohol. But it's big, almost creamy, and quite slick. Little carbonation. I can't really see where they could improve on it.
O- This is my 1st time with BCBS. I like KBS a lot. I think this is just a touch better, and the mouthfeel is like the tiebreaker. An amazing accomplishment of brewing.

Pours thick like molasses and solid black in color. Head is thin tan and retains nicely.
Smell is incredible, some dark red fruity notes are forward before a nice bourbon and oak aroma cut through the fruity esters. Rich toffee malt with subtle aromas of toasted marshmallow and more fruity esters finish.
Taste follows the nose and is just as good. Dark fruity lightly sweet flavors are forward along with a light bourbon presence and a dry oak flavor. Rich toffee malt finishs along with some light toasted marshmallow flavors in the finish.
Mouthfeel is great. Thick body and mild carbonation keep this a perfect sipping beer. Hits all points, sweet sticky dry lightly bitter, anything you could ask for from a great stout
