look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle poured into a Darkness snifter.
A- Pours a very dark brown color, almost black, opaque, poured a ½ finger to 1 finger tan head that dissipated quickly to a thin bubbly ring around the glass, splotchy lacing.
S- Bourbon is present but not too overpowering, slight oak aroma as well, slight roasted notes, coffee, vanilla, bitter sweetness.
T- Bourbon upfront again, I don’t get any heat as it goes down which is surprising for the amount of bourbon I’m getting, vanilla, chocolate, slight roasted malt comes out, slight coffee, some bitterness on the finish.
M- Medium/Big mouth feel, smooth drinking, coats the palate, decent carbonation, dry finish.
O- This is a solid BA beer, the bourbon is present but balanced with the roasted notes, very enjoyable beer from Central Waters, has to be one of if not the best Bourbon Barrel Aged beer that is easy to get off the shelves and cheap.

3.55/5 rDev -16.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
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.
