Cloudy with a bit of lacing around the glass, it brings a sharp bourbon smell, shooting up your nose and warming up your face. A second whiff adds a slight chocolate sweetness that causes salivation. From the get-go, you can tell that you are in for a heavy beer. This is where the BBS throws you for a loop. A solid bourbon taste along with a chocolate backbone show you that this beer is not heavy, but kicks out some big beer flavors. A sweet and warm chest feel. The BBS coats the tongue and touches the bitter buds. This beer is big, and would compliment a big meal.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Transluscent mahogany brown with garnet highlights. Poured wispy with no head and no lacing into a snifter. Got some mocha head once poured into a pint glass. Nice, but I want by BBS to be sexy.
S: Treacle molasses, plums, pit fruits, oak, bourbon.
M/T/O: More of an oak bomb than anything else. Grainy wood notes, spicy peppery finish. The finish was thin, which wasn't the best combo with the flavor at the time. Chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon flavor mid-palate-once again thinner mouthfeel; it was kinda like chocolate soda with a shot of bourbon thrown in. Ok, let' wait 15 minutes and let it warm. Thickens up a bit, and it's an oily oak bomb. Fruity base stands out more, dates and chocolate, but not decadent in presentation. Fruity and sticky.
