I did this review only so that I can think Chris for being such a great trading partner. You seriously rock. Thanks so much!

Amazing brew as expected. The best drink that I've ever put into my mouth! There is still some vanilla on the nose. The finish is long caramel...

This review is for 2010 BCBS Vanilla.

Poured from a 22oz. bomber into a tulip.

I must say, I think I've tasted perfection. BCBVS pours a dark chocolate black, much like its sister BCBCS. Pours with a small head that quickly dissipates. When going in for a smell, this beer reeks of Vanilla and bourbon. You can also notice a hint of smokiness, maybe a peppery touch, and malt. At first sip, bourbon explodes in your mouth, along with the vanilla. To be honest, those are the two major tastes in this brew. I couldn't really taste much else besides malty goodness that goes along with it. Excpetional mouthfeel. You can taste this beer in your mouth long after you're done drinking it. In terms of drinkability, I could drink this beer forever. Excellent stuff!
