2012 vintage procured in a trade. Pours an inky black with a cocoa-colored head that dissipates into a thin band around the shoulders. Nose is quite reminiscent of BCBS - bourbon, chocolate, vanilla and ethanol. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of lactose. Less bourbon is present in the flavor profile than is expressed in the nose. Mouthfeel is medium-light and a little on the thin side for the style. Texture is creamy with a light, even carbonation throughout. Overall, a great beer that would be fantastic with just a little more to the body.
