Pours dark as nite.

Smell is BCS with cherries.

Taste is tart black sweetened cherries in Bourbon County Stout. A lot of vanilla going on.

Creamy and velvety. And this thang is sticky. All night sipper.

Finally get on tap at the Local Option in Chicago. This mother trucker is balls on!! One of the best brews I've ever had---ever!!!

Super deep brown with absolutely no opacity. Super thin lace of brown head even with a vigorous pour.

Wow! This baby smells like dark chocolate covered black cherries with all the essence of bourbon county as well. Smells absolutely decadent. Touches of bourbon and oak.

Wow again. Turn bourbon county into a sweet dessert and you have this. Really tastes like sweet, chocolate lava cake covered in sweet cherries. A touch of tart cherry flavor, chocolate, creamy vanilla, light oak. The cherries really take control of the beer but in a good way. The giant malt base is cooled a bit by the big fruity cherry flavors. Not a touch of detectable alcohol unlike BCBS. Little bit of a tootsie roll like finish. I'm not getting any of the rye though. Despite that, this beer is delicious, it turns BCBS into a totally new monster, a delicious dessert one. I love it.
