What an outstanding beer. Served cool, not cold. Berries and chocolate on the nose. Taste was a perfect balance of berries, chocolate, and barrel. Very smooth for the high ABV and not as boozy as the standard BCBS. Mouthfeel is decadent. I just held it in my mouth and took in all the great flavors, even found myself chewing a time or two. Will be interesting to see how time treats this, but it is spectacular right now.
