Had a chance to try the 2014 vintage at the West Coast Barrel Aged Beerfest this past weekend. I've never had any other vintage. This beer has a certain spiciness to it (cayenne?). The spiciness isn't overwhelming, but it is enough to distract from both the coffee and bourbon that I was looking forward to. The 2012 vintage of the normal BCBS was being poured as well, which was phenomenal.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a 1/8" light brown head that dissipated to patches, but with light lacing. Aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, bourbon, chocolate and light coffee. Flavor is well melded lightly sweet toasted malt, dark chocolate, bourbon and latte coffee. Finish is coffee, chocolate and a bit of bourbon burn. Heavy bodied with a pleasant creaminess. My first of the many variants of the original BCBS, which has always been a favorite. The coffee is blended well with the other flavors and adds a surprisingly smooth new dimension. Like the base version, a world class imerial stout. I'd buy this again, but will never spend the time or gas required to get a single bottle of this. Delicious but too hard to find.
