12 ounce bottle poured into snifter
A: Deep reddish brown, very thin off white head which quickly dissipated.
S: Right up front, the aroma is inviting. Clearly bourbon, but not overpowering at all. Hints of vanilla, some hops. So far so great, looks and smells fantastic!
T: I was surprised in my initial taste. I immediately thought of Nemesis, which is odd as BB is classified as a Scotch Ale aged in bourbon and Nemesis is a wheatwine. Not surprisingly, I think BB is a great tasting brew. Vanilla, bourbon, oak with no alcohol taste. Very tasty and quite smooth.
M: Smooth and creamy, on the thick side.
D: Dangerous. While the complex flavors and aroma beg to be savored, it's so damn tasty and smooth it goes down rather quickly. Could drink a four pack of this easily, except I can't afford that, both in the wallet and gut.
