4.33/5 rDev -0.7%
Pours with a moderate head that settles to rim bubbles. Near black color where no light shines through. Some blanketing lace that slides down the glass.
Okay, I think this is off--I smell sour mix and Southern Comfort. In short, this is mostly sweet with a touch of sourness. It's a bit like a punch, the alcoholic kind, to the nose.
The flavor is amazing. There's cherry, Bourbon and vanilla. The swallow features a lot of alcohol with a back of the throat strong cherry/brandy flavor. Spritzy carbonation but there's plenty of body to support it. No burnt elements like most stouts--this far sweeter. It could pass as a Barley Wine.

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!

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.

A: Pours a nearly opaque black color with a bit of brown/ruby around the edges. A two finger tan head forms, and recedes quickly to a ring. Light lace.
S: Plenty of barrel aroma. Wood, vanilla, and syrupy molasses. Vanilla sweetness.
T: Follows the nose. Plenty of barrel flavors, wood, vanilla, bakers chocolate. Some molasses.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Though smooth at the same time. This is a plenty big beer. A slow sipper for sure.
Yep, this is pretty much the same thing as Bishop's Barrel 1. Maybe a bit more integrated. I still enjoy it, and can't find a lot at fault here that was not in the first release. Still, I can't help but feel a bit of a let down.

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.

4.21/5 rDev -3.4%
A: Pours a deep reddish brown leading to opaque black. Not as thick as expected. Half finger of light tan tight bubbled head. Fizzle of high carbonation.
S: Big vanilla, booze and oak. Overpowers to dark chocolate and roast.
T: High carbonation, prickles the tongue for a ris. Getting nice vanilla and bourbon flavors. Dark chocolate. Booze heat down back of throat. Finish is long and lingering.
M: Full bodied. But high carbonation.
