4.45/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
22 oz bottle poured into stemless red wine glasses.
Been waiting on this since I heard about it, so happy to score some.
A: Not what I was expecting. Very dark brown, almost black. Almost looks like a stout. Good carbonation and lacing but no head when poured.
S: fans of the BCBS would know what this was aged in just from the smell. Bourbon with some oak. This will either be really good or undrinkable.
T: Wow, exactly what I was thinking. The barrel flavoring is all over it. Caramel, some almost nut like. Very sweet like the BCBS.
MF: smooth but sticky, leaves a film.
OA: Glad I have more of this. Can't wait to age this a couple years.

4.8/5 rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75
Poured from bomber into tulip glass.
A- black but not quite jet black if that makes sense. Abiut half inch of head but it wasn't as frothy as I expected it to be. The head dissipates rather quickly as well.
S- tons of bourbon with some fruity undertones. Lots of sweet malt xoming forward as well.
T- delicious. The bourbon hits first strong even after 3 years. Then there is a smooth sweet malt that follows and really holds this beer together. The aftertaste is definitely fruity but not like backyard rye or actual fruit, if that makes sense. Hint of vanilla and oak in there as well.
M - a little bit thinner than I thought it would be but still has a medium body feel and little carbonation. The sweetness of the beer is a little strong but it just makes it a sipper.
O- extrenely well made beer. I can definitely see the hype behind it. Glad I got a few in the trade!
