Absolutely loved this BBA stout, everything I was expecting from BCBS came through in this. All the things I wanted to have a punch did and all the things I wanted to be subtle were.

Bottle. Pours black with low tan head. Aroma is sweet booze and roasted chocolate. Taste is similar with a sweet booze finish, could use more roast

Outstanding barrel aged brew. Does everything well. Nothing too overwhelming, just an extremely well balanced bourbon barrel aged brew.
