Notes from 10/16/14. Bottled in 2013.

A - Thin, light brown head. Quickly dissipates. Thick, black body.

S - Sweet bourbon and rich cocoa powder/chocolate ice cream. A little alcohol bite. Scents become a little deeper as it warms.

T - Sweet bourbon and some chocolate. Sweetened coffee. Then some bitterness and more sweet bourbon and alcohol. Everything mellows out in the finish with the addition of some barrel qualities. Way more cocoa as it warms.

M - Full bodie. Lower carbonation. Syrupy. Sticky finish. Velvet.

O - I've had it before and I though that it couldn't beat out Jack's Abby Framinghammer as my favorite BA brew, but I think I prefer BCBS. A terrific and complex BA stout.

Having 2014 on tap right now and it's delicious! Tastes like Southern bourbon pecan pie. Not a big alcohol taste for a 14%+ beer.
