    Had this at Lincoln Station after the Rev bash Saturday night. Exactly as everyone described, beautiful aroma with a more balanced chocolate flavor. Absolutely beautiful man.

    Just had this last night (finally) at Green Door in River North since it was tapped out at GI-Clybourn when I was there last week. Only $7 for a 12 oz. and it was indeed delicious: more chocolatey and less boozy overall, but with a little bit of a funky bite to it, though not much. I would say it's similar to the comparison of Guinness Foreign Extra to standard Guinness. I just wish I could get it bottled, would love to see how it ages alongside standard BCS '12.

    Personally I would go for regular BCS before this. So if you are at the 25th tomorrow I would stand in other lines before this. I love funky beers, but I feel like the little bit of funk takes away from the bourbon taste we all love in BCS. Just my two cents but wouldnt be the first variant I go for. Wait that means longer lines where I want to go if people listen to me. Nevermind it is awesome and get multiple samples.
  6. I sampled this at the brewery a month or so ago and I loved it. Side by side with coffee and BCBS. Baudoinia was really wonderful. So balanced and smooth. No heat like BCBS. Really blew me away.
  7. I'm going to a one year anniversary of a brewery in machesney park il. Pig minds brewery
  8. Aside from that i got a decent stock of bcbs and a bottle of coffee left. Had some coffee on tap last weekend it was wonderful.

    Reviving this thread rather than starting a new one... Does anyone know if Baudonia has really been made multiple times? It's listed as "rotating" in the database, but I'd always thought it was a one-off treatment.

    As far as I know it was a one off. It rarely pops up on tap here and there but I havent seen it in awhile.
  11. I was so excited when I saw this thread bump, totally disappointed. That beer is perfect!

    Had this amazing beer while at Great Taste of the Midwest. Absolutely amazing. Really hope for a repeat!
  13. This has been popping up again lately but I think it's still the same single batch, but as it goes with Bourbon County Brand anything, a large amount was held back by GI. I personally poured two sixtels of this at Oak Park Micro Brew Review a couple weekends ago. It's in a great spot right now and is drinking like a champ. Much more fudgey chocolate and less heat than regular BCBS. Keep an eye out for it at events in the coming months and get some if you can.
