In review is a 2012 vintage.
A - Pours dark black with a thick frothy toffee head.
S - Chocolate, slight spice, and cherry extract.
T - Chocolate, cherry extract, and oak.
M - Thick, rich, and full.
O - The cherry comes across as a sugary extract which IMO kills this beer. Wasn't worth trading for and terribly overrated just because it sports a Bourbon County label.

Had on tap at Whole Foods while "Rare Stout Night" was happening at Goose.
Smelled of bourbon and cherry. Didn't smell overwhelmingly like alcohol.
First taste was of cherries, followed by chocolate notes.
Very smooth feel and not intense alcohol like BCS '10 on tap.
This was by far the best beer I had all week, but I am a huge cherry lover. The combination of the cherries, chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon was enough to leave my girlfriend at Goose Island for....and I'd do it again!

On-tap at Acre for the Goose Island Invasion.
Served with no head, pitch black in color.
Smell is subdued bourbon, wood, vanilla, faint cherry and some roastyness. Slightly sweet. Little alcohol present.
Upfront taste is a little cherry, dark chocolate, roasted malts--fairly sweet. Bourbon really starts to come through in the middle. The finish has a strong cherry flavor mixing with the bourbon, wood, vanilla and chocolate. Cherries and chocolate linger.
Full bodied and smooth with little carbonation. Some alcohol heat, but a lot less than a fresh Bourbon County Stout.
The addition of the cherries to the BCS base really makes for a unique beer. The flavor has unexpected twists to it--you think it's about to get very Bourbon-heavy and then the cherries come back and surprise you. The Bourbon also seems to be toned down a bit helping the cherries shine. Really impressive.
