look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Pours black with a half finger of light brown head.
Smell is vanilla, oak, bourbon, caramel, slight alcohol heat in the nose.
Taste is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, bourbon is present but know where near as strong as the nose, oak, vanilla, caramel, ends sweet and nice
Mouthfeel is a little lighter then I was expecting, still creamy and nice though.
Nice flavor and smell, could use a little more mouthfeel and barrel presence. Nice none the less, glad I got to try it!

On tap at a local C-Bus joint. Finger of off-white head over a deep, rich dark brown body. V. nice looker (just like my date!). Whiskey, whiskey, whiskey on the nose. I hope that you like whiskey. Same song as far as the flavors go... with just a hint of dark fruit emerging from the whiskey river towards the end as it warmed. Good carbonation (surprisingly), and a nice smooth mouthfeel. Perfect feel for a BBS. Well, I hope that you are ready for a whiskey punch in the face. It could use some time to mellow, and I am sure that this is much better with a little age on it. It was ok... but I wouldn't push my grandmother out of the way to get one. I am now becoming convinced that I enjoy BB-aged beers much more from a bottle, with at least a year under their belts... on tap may be too fresh, and too whiskey for my personal liking. I would like to give the standard Siberian Night a go some time... I am sure it is quite good.
