look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Thick oily pour was burnt black with a trace of deep brown foam that was quickly subsumed by the evil looking viscous liquid. Smells of raspberries and dark chocolate with a trace of molasses and vanilla. Skipping the taste for a moment, the first sip.. This is a cement mixer thick liquid. Wow it's creamy and just the bare minimum of carbonation. Can I have a gallon of water on the side? Excellent excellent. But an excellent mouthfeel is a standard for BCBS. Now the taste. It's fantastic and something completely different..I get the BCBS underpinnings of malt chocolate, figs, molasses and bourbon but wow even 3+ years of aging.. Hello the raspberries! Blackberries! They are lightly sweet and tart and add a really nice complexity to the chocolate, vanilla, figs and molasses. Finish is dark chocolate and light tartness of the berries. Although there's nary a burn from the stated 12.7% ABV, this whale is a sipper.
