I can see why this beer was rated as a top 25 beer in the world in 2013 by draft magazine. An absolutely dynamic beer which combines the potent Voodoo Black Magick aged in Pappy Barrels. Talk about a match made in heaven. Kudos to the Voodoo team for delivering on of the top beers in the world in 2013!

Bottle #484, bottle date 1-18-13, 12oz bottle

A- Black motor oil, very viscous. Dark coffee medium lacing with slow legs. Minor gumming of the glass when swirled around.

S- Chocolate, pretty big tobacco, toffee, fudge. Some vanilla notes in the back. The smooth pappy comes through. The smell is 5, perfect.

T- Toffee>fudge>tobacco>chocolate; while in perfect harmony with the pappy barrel. Oz per Oz this taste as good as a fresh DB Huna (DB Huna has lost some of the rum barrel characteristics).

M- Extremely velvety smooth, creamy, etc. Carb is just the right amount. There is a boozy creamy fudgy thick linger in my mouth for minutes after sipping this one down. Almost 5 on this.

O- I just popped the Buffalo Trace (2nd one had in the past month)---> now this is noticeably better than today's Buffalo Trace, but two people agree that the first bottle of Buffalo Trace was better than this. The first bottle of Buffalo Trace was extremely thick, creamy and tasted like liquid boozy chocolate fudge. I altered the rating of Buffalo Trace because of the variability of the beer.

I have only had one bottle of BCBS Rare, and this blows that away. Maybe I got a bad bottle?
