4.5/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pitch black. A thin head around the edge. Very little carbonation.
Smell: Roasty dark notes with super sweet bourbon. Almost like smelling toasted marshmallow smores.
Taste: Very bourbon forward. Sweet. Integrated very well.
Mouthfeel: A bit thinner than I would have expected or hoped for. Spreads very well across the palate.
Overall: This was a very good beer. Was this a world beater? Na uh. Extremely well integrated and wonderful bourbon notes, but lacking in complexity compared to the Port BA Dl and not as well integrated or as BCS. Sidebar: Cuvee de Port BA DL+BVDL+BCBCS was without a doubt the best beer I have ever had. Hands down.
Notes:2012 edition, Bottle #413/934

Tried this at The Great Taste,
Poured a pitch black, even in the blazing sun no light got through. The smell was perfect, sweet vanilla with a touch of coffee and chocolate. The taste wasn't quite as good as the smell but very impressive. Very similar to the nose, but a touch heavy on the vanilla. Threw of the balance of the nose. M:&D: were both very easy on the palate. Not sure I'd want more than 6oz's but it would be one of the most enjoyable 6oz's!
Serving type: on-tap
