thanks to ablackshear for this bottle!

500ml bottle sealed with red pressure cap. Most recent vintage; I believe this is 2014.

poured into Assassin teku.

Appearance: black bodied beer with thick brown cap that drops down to an very thin yet uneven cap. Spotty lacing and heavy booze legs noted after each sip.

Smell: sweet yet balanced barrel forward nose. Earthy oak, spicy bourbon, sweet vanilla. Mellow bitter chocolates to balance the nose.

Taste: Nose is almost identical to the flavor profile, but more complexity in the flavor of the beer. Its a barrel forward dessert beer. Lots of oak, bourbon, and vanilla that really are balanced nicely. Hints of that great umami richness, semi sweet chocolates, and graham crackers. Tobacco notes and a slight leather note to help mellow the sweetness in this beer. Great balance considering the huge barrel notes of this beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation. Its slightly boozey, but it improves the overall effect of the beer in my opinion. I could see myself tackling a 500ml bottle over the course of a 2 or 3 hour session with several different food pairings. It is a really great beer to drink slowly, sip, and savor.

Overall: This beer is what BCBS tastes like fresh with that mellowness that only a properly aged bottle of BCBS brings to the table. I wish this wasnt a limited release beer. This is also my first Bull and Bush beer. Hope to try Royal Oil some day because Bull and Bush really know how to barrel age beer!
