12oz 2009 Vintage bottle. Bottled on date of 10/02/09. Was stored at cellar temperature except for the past 4 hours chilling in the fridge.
A- Pours thick and dark as night. A small amount of off-white head quickly fades to some lacing along the sides of the glass.
S- Chocolate, coffee, and bourbon dominate. I also get hints of vanilla and oak in there as well.
T- These guys do bourbon barrel aging the best. Up front I get notes of chocolate and bourbon. Dark fruits and vanilla round out the flavor. Each sip leaves a nice warming feeling from the booziness as it goes down my throat.
M- Thick, chewy, hard hitting. Little carbonation but just enough for the style. Still drinking hot even after nearly three years.
BCBS is amazing stuff. I'm sadly now down to my last bottle (one 2010) in my cellar. If only I appreciated this stuff the way I do now a few years back when it was easy to find. Each Vintage is harder and harder to locate in my area. If you haven't tried it, get your hands on a bottle, you won't be disappointed.

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
