look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Just picked up my '09-'10 (ony 3/4 of a 4-pack left at the store) and am reviewing my '08-'09.

Some beers just change with age, BBCS is better in pretty much every respect with one year on it. The sweetness, bitterness, alcohol, and roastyness are just about in perfect balance.

Judging by the change from a year ago, I don't think this is one of those RISs good for 10 years. I'm guessing it will still be damn good for another year or so, and then it will start going down hill.

There is a slight possibility that the dark fruits I am picking up that were totally not there a year ago will get a lot stronger. If that turns out to be the case, then in 2 more years we could have something magical on our hands - I kind of doubt it, though.

All-in-all, I will be picking up some of this every year from now on. It's great, but not ground breaking.
