Last tasted a 2014 in a bourbon taster glass. They hype is real on this beer and has been for a very long time. One of the best if not the best BA stouts out there. This beer embodies perfection in every aspect that a review really can't do this beer justice. Its look, smell, taste, and finish is out of this world. That is why BCBS is on the top of many top beer lists. You simply have to try it if you haven't already and do yourself a favor... get your hands on all the previous years too.

L: I love pouring huge bourbon barrel stouts. No head, no carbonation, just pitch black and looks like oil
S: They don't call it bourbon county for nothing. Huge bourbon and chocolate.
T: Big sweet bourbon without the heat, chocolate and a hint of the barrel notes.
F: This completely coats my mouth, and the flavor last far beyond the drink. It's very thick and smooth.
O: Clean sweep of 5's, it's special occasion beer. An absolute treat!

This is the BA stout that I compare all other stouts too. Super thick, lots of depth to the flavor and a richness that I have yet to really find in another BA stout. Add to the fact that it is not incredibly difficult to find at the right time of year and it definitely is one of my favorites.

Had it in a blind test. It beat out Sunday Morning Stout, KBS 2015 and Big Bad Baptist.

When consumed right away there is a strong bourbon presence to the beer. The aroma is boozey chocolate and oak from the barrels. The body is thick but velvet smooth on the tongue and in the mouth. The flavor is richness; chocolate caramel and vanilla followed by a wonderful bourbon heat that just warms the throat and stomach. This is a fireside beer winter warmer and it is delicious.

This is the perfect stout in my opinion. The look and smell are great. I like the slightly boozier taste of this beer. Very easy to drink.

I prefer the coffee one over this one, but still one of the best beers I've ever had.

Tried this last night. I don't have the words to make a review. Mind blown, eyes open, I see the world through a different light this morning.

2014 vintage.

Appearance is dark motor oil, with little head. The head that is present consists of a caramel color.

Aroma is something incredibly special. You know this is an excellent beer just by the smell. It smells of an intense bourbon flavor. Some sweet molasses come forward. Huge hit of vanilla for sure! Absolutely outstanding.

Taste is phenomenal! This beer is thick… I mean it coats the palate! Intense flavors of vanilla, bourbon, coffee, and some maple syrup. A huge kick of alcohol at the end that warms and provides a nice flavor. The bourbon is the star of this beer. It is so intense that ALL stouts will fail in comparison. YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS BEER! Very little carbonation. No hops present. No bitterness. Just smooth, thick, bourbon laced beer.

This is by far the best stout I have ever tried. I highly recommend it for anyone who says stouts aren’t good. I would typically agree, however, this could convert even the biggest haters of stouts. Normally I give a recommended pairing, but this beer needs a clean palate and an hour to fully enjoy it! An obvious 100/100 for me!

One of my favorite bourbon stouts. True bourbon taste hints of coffee yet blended perfectly
