This is a 2010 version of Vanilla BCS 4 years later. I'm mentioning the vintage since there is rumor that it is coming back for "Black Friday" 2014. Poured into a snifter. Special thanks to Link's Taproom in Chicago, IL for having this event.

A: Jet black, very little brown bubbles but no significant head.

S: After almost 4 years the scent of bourbon and vanilla is STILL apparent, maybe stronger than when I 1st had it back in 2010. On 1st sniff, the vanilla immediately attacks the nose.

T: Boozy. The bourbon and vanilla taking over the mouth. Still strong after all these years.

O: Surprisingly STILL strong. The vanilla is still present and the beer, in my opinion, has become stronger over time. I wish I could've taken it home with me instead of being opened at the bar, especially if there really is a 2014 version coming out to do a side by side tasting.
