Pours a solid, 1 finger dark brown head with good retention for the style, fading to a thin bubbly remnant. Solid lacing. Brew Is the motor oil solid black one would expect.
Chocolate and bourbon through the nose, with a milk-and-barley stout composition. Intimidating but smooth. Slight red grape booziness, dry cocoa, and a hint of coffee.
Smooth flavor, with everything blended perfectly: bourbon, chocolate, red grapes, cream, vanilla, a hint of burnt coffee (especially as it warms), and wheat/barley. Nice bite. Basically follows the nose, but everything is unbelievably balanced. The alcohol from the bourbon can come across a touch harsh at times.
Unbelievably thick and smooth mouthfeel; creamy and tingly. Chewy. Alcohol is definitely present, with a pleasant warmth, but that's too be expected.
It's a toss-up as to which is the better beer: KBS or BCBS. There's certainly no loser in this exchange. This is a fantastic beer, and hits every wicket you want in a bourbon stout.
Big thanks to JayORear who included this as an extra in a trade.
