Got a growler of this Thursday at Barley Hoppers. Took it to a New Years Eve party and I was the hit of the night. Great rich stout flavor. Bourbon aroma and taste is strong but not overpowering. Definitely for special occasions.

2015 BBT on tap at lakewood growler. Dramatically similar to BCBS in flavor profile, and malt charecter; however much less sweet though thinner. People complaining its to thin dont realize its a IMS not IRS. Very good for the style i would say. Barrel character is present but not overwhelming. This year is very good, worth grabbing a bottle

Lactose on the nose and taste was a bit too much for me on this one. Just wasn't as good as I expected it to be.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 bottle.

Appearance - Black body. Medium khaki head. Lots of surface wisping.

Smell - Lots of bourbon. Oak. Kinda nutty malts. Milk chocolate. A little lactose, but not a lot.

Taste - Chocolate up front. Lactose comes through too, which I don't love. Kinda nutty malts and some oak. Bourbon is much stronger in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Kinda sweet.

Overall - Better than I expected it to be, especially for a milk stout.

Very dark stout. Leaves a roasted carmel taste in the mouth. High ABV so pace yourself.
