The 13.8% ABV is apparent. Would recommend to the bourbon whiskey enthusiast. Very harsh if you take a big gulp, but overall very smooth. Not too bitter, with a very strong bourbon flavor, a little dry. Get 1 bottle before trying the whole pack, it can be hit or miss by person. Don't let the strength sneak up on you, drink it slow.

2013 12 oz. bottle that sat in a closet for a year. Pitch-black body and thin light-brown head. Nice bourbon scent, without being too strong. Body is as rich as it gets, with a roasty sweet taste. Laced beautifully throughout the drink. Alcohol detected, certainly, but that's to be expected at 14.9%.

Superlatives run aplenty for the BCBS. All deserved. Loved every sip.

I let this beer age for two years at about 50 degrees, don't know if that's the perfect temp but it turned out amazing! The I think aging these bourbon county beers is the key. I've tried it as soon as I bought it and it was much better once its aged. The flavors really shine through this way. Try it and I think you'll agree
