4.85/5 rDev +8%
(from last night at bottle share) Bomber dated 11/12/12 split 5 ways, poured about 4 oz into pint glass
Appearance - dark black, not much head
Smell - Got a decent amount of cherry, some oak, vanilla
Taste - amazing, taste followed the flavor. almost reminded me of red velvet cake, cherry, chocolate goodness. an ever so slight hint of whiskey. the cherry flavor lingers on the finish and is very pleasant.
Mouthfeel - it was thick but didn't seem as much as regular BCBS, lower carb, very smooth
Overall - wow, what a beer. I'd love to have had a bit larger pour but was grateful to have been part of the bottle share. How smooth this beer was makes me want to age my only backyard Rye for a year before cracking it open. This was so drinkable I could probably easily have put down the whole bomber myself

Bottled 11/12/12. Poured into a snifter. Vigorous pour raised a small amount of tan head. Black with a hint of red.
Smells of bourbon, vanilla, smoke. Smell is very similar to BCBS.
My god this tastes so good. Very similar to base BCBS but with a sweeter palate. Has a bit of sweet cherry on the back. Absolutely brilliant balance of flavor.
Just the right amount of carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. What you expect from Bourbon County.
Happy to have had the chance to share this bad boy. My dad, brother, and I all ,felt like this was an unbelievable variant. Perfect addition to Bourbon County line. World class brew!
