There have been a few beers that changed my whole paradigm. The first beer was Two-Hearted Ale which got me into the rabbit whole that is craft beer. The second was RR Supplication on Tap at Tria in Philadelphia. The third was Heady Topper on tap at Reservoir in Waterbury, VT.

This beer is the fourth. BCBCS is a universe of complexity. The oakiness and bourbon shine but are not overpowering. The coffee sits extremely well in the middle of the taste. The body is perfect: not watery and thin, but not like motor oil. I enjoyed this beer until the last drop. If you can, PLEASE get a hold of this beer. I didn't think beer could be this exquisite.
