Poured into a snifter glass. The beer pours black with a thin, quickly dissipating tan head. There are some visible rising bubbles along the side of the glass. I get bourbon in the aroma with oak and vanilla. I get some sweetness in the aroma from the alcohol as well as some dark fruits and chocolate. The flavors in this beer are just delightful. I'm getting those barrel notes with the vanilla and bourbon. The chocolate and dark fruits also come out here. What is nice is the bourbon barrel notes don't overwhelm the flavors of this beer. The main knock against this beer is the lighter body, but this is only a minor gripe. While this beer isn't full bodied, it's moderate carbonation and medium, creamy body only help make this beer easier to drink. At 11.5% ABV, this is a bit dangerous. The alcohol also provides a nice warming effect to this beer and I can imagine this would be very delightful on a cold winter night. This is an excellent beer. Definitely give this one a try.

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!
