Winter 10-11 Release..
Pours ultra dark with half finger tan head. This dissipated quickly leaving a nice ring of carbonation around the glass with a moderate amount of lacing. This is rather fresh for BCS so there's a bit of bitter hop profile especially in the aftertaste. Aroma is roasted coffee, toasty malts, barley and coffee.. bit of a metallic tinge which isn't all too pleasant, but its not prevalent. There isn't a lot of complexity I'd say right now. It's rather green and kind of sour? Taste is mostly roasted malt, coffee and tobacco. Boozy. Hop bitterness is really starting to coat my tongue as the glass empties. Mouthfeel is about right. Very full and creamy. Drinkability is okay but I wouldn't have a second right now, this needs some age.
If you're a coffee aficianado and know how coffee tastes when you brew it below the proper temp this BCS is very similar. Very "green" tasting with a bit of sourness and bitterness.
