Side-by-side with '13 BCBS.

A- Black with a medium level, light tan head. Reflective like oil.

S- Scotch and oak. Lots of barrel in this one.

T- Roasted marshmallow, brown sugar, medium-range bourbon, and I get a bit of a coconut flavor with this as well. I've heard a few people describe this beer as a "barrel-aged S'more," and I think that's actually pretty accurate for those familiar with BA stouts.

M- Typical alcohol warmth, not too heavy and not too light. If it was cold out, the mouthfeel of this beer would really seal the deal.

O- Love this beer... much better out of a bottle than on tap in my opinion, for whatever reason. This wins my side-by-side against BCBS by a couple points. Cheers!
