22oz. bottle poured into a Bourbon County Snifter. Bottled on 11/05/10. Huge thanks to kdmcguire10 for the bottle.

Appearance: Dark black with a 1" frothy tan head that recedes to nice creamy cap and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: Vanilla over chocolate and caramel with a nice whiff of bourbon.

Taste: Very nice twist on BCBS, big Vanilla as expected, the bourbon is still pronounced adding it's own oaky component. Tremendous depth so much vanilla and caramel added to the roasted malt chocolaty flavor. All that turned up with the flavor of bourbon. As it warms the flavors continue to expand and deepen.

Mouthfeel: Lush and creamy and still carrying some heat from the bourbon.

Overall: One of the single best barrel aged stouts I've had the pleasure of drinking. I was lucky enough to have this whole bottle to myself and experience this beer as it warms, The best of the Bourbon County family I have had to date.
