Thanks to Daniel at Cottonwood for this one.

Pours a tan head. Color is a copper hued black.

Flavor profile: Very similar to BB #1. A lot of roasted malts and coffee. Chocolate and cocoa. Vanilla with a heavy dose of bourbon. Some caramel and brown sugar. Molasses. Very malty.

Mouthfeel: roasted, but creamy. Medium to full bodied. Good carbonation level. Ends with bourbon notes.

Overall, an awesome beer that was very similar to BB #1. Definitely worth a try!

Serving type: bottle

Poured a 12 oz. bottle into snifter. Was dark black with very thin brown head. Smelled of a very strong bourbon flavor with some additional vanilla and oak aroma. Taste was dominated by bourbon heat with a powerful molasses finish. The molasses amplified the bourbon flavor, and I found this taste really overpowered the beer and was too sweet for my taste, with more heat than I generally like. The mouthfeel was definitely substantial, almost sticky owing to the sugary flavor. I was pretty underwhelmed on the whole. I think it could have used a bit more balance, and the molasses didn't seem like a good pairing with the bourbon barrel aging.
