Tasted @ 15th Anniversary Goose Island Wrigleyville - Benefit for Bodhi. Best beer event ever.
Tasted after Bourbon County Brand Stout, Proprietors, Templeton Rye, Buffalo Trace, and lastly RARE!
Overall Perfection for all traits...
Appearance: Dark as night, thin mocha head and produced from being on tap.
Smell: Roasted malts, bourbon, not at all boozy and a well mannered 13%.
Taste: Same as the smell. I would compare this to aging the last five years of BCS and blending all of the best bottles together. Not as complex or distinct as I imagined but overall perfect.
Mouthfeel: Thick, viscous, creamy, smooth and covers mouth with immense flavor.
Overall: Really happy I got to try the best BCS bottle ever made. Not sure if anyone should justify the hundreds of dollars its going for on ebay or whatever or even the $75 it sold for originally. Aging a BCS Brand Stout for a while in perfect cellar conditions can stand up to this beer no problem in my opinion.
