Pours inky black with little to no head, there's a fizzy momentary skim that fades away after a few seconds, no lacing. Still glassy obsidian surface, sort of dull but par for the course.

Aroma is reminiscent of BCS, big oxidized roasty malt blended with malted milk balls and vanilla, traces of alcohol as it warms.

Roasty malt, chocolate, vanilla, whiskey, trace woodiness. Sticky on the lips, fairly thin bodied though the base beer is too. It's a pretty good BCS clone, though the nuances of the base beer seem lost. Not as boozy as BCS, so that's a plus if you're looking for a less heavy substitute.

Why did this get released in the middle of summer?

2014 Vintage bottle into DFH Signature glass, just picked up yesterday/ The bottle indicates that the base beer, Drago, spent 8 months in Oak Bourbon Barrels

A - Poured like motor oil, thick. very small head, mocha colored, settled quickly

S - Sweet Vanilla, Bourbon, oak

T - Dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, vanilla, oak

M - Medium body, a bit lighter than I would expect. Low carbonation. Goes down smooth

O - Great BA RIS, though I wish just a bit more on the mouthfeel, but definitely worth the price tag at $17 a 4 pack. Might pick up another if I see it.
