#8 in our BCBS tasting. Poured into a Trillium Tulip tasting glass.
Appearance: It looks like Bourbon County. I'm shocked. It's thick black motor oil, has a thin eggshell crown and no lacing. Just like all the other Bourbon County beers.
Smell: Lots of fruit in the nose. Lots of raspberry specifically. Somewhat boozy, none of the chocolate I typically get in the nose of BCBS beers.
Taste: Wow, that's a lot of raspberry. I love raspberry. Chocolate comes through beneath it, but the raspberries are strong in this one. This is delicious. Because I love raspberry. Did I mention this is my eighth 4oz pour tonight? This is my eighth 4oz pour tonight. Raspberries are awesome.
Smell: Oh wait, I already rated smell. Moving on. Eighth 4oz pour tonight.
Mouthfeel: Significantly thinner than the other Bourbon County beers. No worries though, it's still delicious. I love raspberries. Carbonation is somewhat higher than most of the others.
Overall: "This is more memorable than my wedding" said one of the tasters. For the protection of his marriage, not going to mention who said that. This is really nice. A real highlight of a night full of highlight-worthy beers.
