4.11/5  rDev -5.7%

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!

My father picked this beer up in Dallas on a trip from work and brought back a few to share with me. The aroma is something that I could smell all day. Seriously, they should make a candle. The taste is incredibly smooth and complex. Every sip I pick up on different flavors. Overall, one of the best beers I've ever had. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on a bottle.

4.63/5  rDev +6.2%

Enjoyed at Meddlesome Moth in Dallas.

A - Dark black with a thin layer of light brown head that reduced to a ring.

S - Charred oak, sweet bourbon and vanilla, roast, chocolate fudge, sweet molasses. A wonderful nose!!!

T - Roast, sweet molasses and chocolate truffle notes intermingle with barrel qualities of charred oak, bourbon and vanilla.

M - Medium to full body; a touch watery for the style.
