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.
