2013 vintage into an old hickory snifter. bottling date dec 5 2013 bottle # 4724 / 4813
Pours a pitch black with a big inch and a half thick beige head. Smell is very big no bourbon...nice! the taste and feel is so creamy and the bourbon is very big up front...bigger than bourbon county even. Alcohol heat is also very pronounced...this is a big beer for sure! very full bodied, on point. the creaminess feel is so amazing, my god.
overall lives up to the hype as a world class beer....sweet!

2013 Vintage (acquired in a trade with @MichiganderHB) poured into snifter.
look - pitch black with a few cm mocha head that settled down quickly
smell - amazing - slight bourbon, dark fruit, vanilla, oak, dark chocolate
taste - unbelievable! Follows the aroma. dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, some booze on the finish
mouthfeel - fairly thick, lower carb, finshes smooth
overall - wow. this is amazing - it's actually more drinkable than BCBS fresh . it'd be such a tough choice if I had to pick between the two. Glad I got a 4 pack!!!

Poured 2012 vintage into a snifter.
A- oil black with a bubbly single finger dark tan head
S- lots of chocolate, bourbon barrel, cinnamon, marshmallow,
T- very smooth, tons of dark chocolate, the bourbon barrel is nice and not overpowering at all, marshmallow, cinnamon, some coffee, dark fruit, no alcohol to be tasted. Finishes with a nice bourbon-y chocolate flavor
M- so smooth, one of the highlights of this beer
O- this is a great, well balanced bba stout. The flavors are in perfect harmony, it's not too sweet, not too boozy, amazing texture, all around great barrel aged stout that I'd love to try fresh.
