The 2013 edition of BCBCS. What else I can say that thousands of BA users already haven't. The quintessential bourbon barrel aged coffee stout. An amazing BBA stout brewed with an awesome coffee could only yield a beer such as this. To put it in layman's terms: COFFEE BOMB

Popped a bottle of 2013 for my first bourbon county coffee stout experience ever. This beer left me speechless because it was so delicious. I tried this beer right after I had a Kbs and I thought this was so much more balanced and was more flavorful as well.

A: Dark brown to black body with a khaki head that stands quite well for a second or two, then pops out of sight almost instantly. No lacing.

S: It has a very wonderful aroma. Bourbon, oak, coffee, cocao, and a promise of wonderful flavors. It's fantastic.

T: It has a nice well-balanced flavor of bourbon and spiced wood along with rich malty chocolate flavor and coffee. It's amazing. There's few words I could use to describe this beer without talking in circles. It's something a person would have to experience. There is a hint of alcohol that looms in the rafters, but it's so far in the background that it does no harm to the flavor. The aftertaste is exactly what you'd get out of a cup o' Joe. It is very lovely.

M: It has a nearly perfect mouthfeel. The body is nice and full, smooth, robust without being a hindrance. The only downfall I notice is the severe lack of carbonation.

O: Overall it is a quite wonderful beer that lacks only in the carbonation. I would gladly buy this beer again, and would happily recommend it to others. There's precious little to be said about perfection, but this does quite well in embodying it. Bourbon lovers, stout enthusiasts, and coffee scrutineers will all be proud to have a bottle of this close by.
