Not much more I can say that hasn't been already.

Bottled 9/24/14.

Almost opaque black, touch of ruby highlights.

Smooth vanilla with prominent bourbon in the nose.

Taste off the bat for me is vanilla and the bourbon compliments it perfectly. Other BBA beer I've had are all out assault of booze but this one is far from that. Vanilla remains and followed by some chocolate and a bit of coffee. Some charred wood thrown on for good measure.

High side of medium for the body and medium carb. Not the most viscous but it's just right.

No question world class. Was weary that the bourbon would be overwhelming but it's placed perfectly in this one.
