Poured a 2013 into a duvel tulip

A. Pours an almost black /brown motor oil with 1 finger of cappuccino colored head that resides quickly.

S. Notes of bourbon, mocha, roasted malts, vanilla. Smells like a brownie with alcohol.

T. The coffee is very pronounced from the regular variant. If BCBS can get any better it's with coffee. It carries huge through the aftertaste. Lovin this!

M. IMO BCBS is the perfect body for BA stout. So 5 here. Thick with some carbonation.

O. I love reg BCBS. But this takes the cake. That coffee really hits it off. Everything is perfect besides it should have a better appearence and aroma. dont get alot of coffee there. But nonetheless if there is a beer that deserves almost a perfect it's this. One of the best stouts i've had!

I would argue this is the best beer in the world, or the best I've ever had
I come from Vermont and like Vermont IPA, but this is much better than Heady Topper.

The taste and mouth feel are awesome.
Beautiful dark black

(2013) Perfect. I love you Heady, but BCBCS is the best beer out there.

A hint of vanilla and oak. Warm finish With hints of fruity coffee. F: heavy mouthfeel but not syrupy. Delicious.

Great stout. Very drinkable, although any beer that tastes more like coffee than beer is not going to get higher than a 4 from me.
