12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (11/15/13 1949)

A: Pitch black with no head, collar or anything outside of the liquid. Slight mocha head on a vigorous pour of what I had left., left an ok collar. Dissipated right away.

S: Sweet malts with a a nice earthy coffee flavor, like freshly ground coffee beans. Just a bit of bourbon mingling around the edges.

T: The last time I had BCBS was on Black Friday, but this is just like I remember with just some slight changes. Bourbon on the backend with just a slight bit of a burn. Very warming. I let it warm up quite a bit. The coffee is primarily on the backend and dulls the bourbon a bit, just soaks it up. Coffee just does a good job in balancing this out a bit, at least with fresh BCS.

M: Smooth for the most part with just a few rough patches of coarse bubbles/carbonation. However, it does seem to have close to the same body of a good bourbon, it feels like you mixed some with it. Like it is oily almost.

O: I only got two other bottles, so I will either save them or bring them to bottleshares. It is just too much bourbon for me.
