Super complex. Tastes completely different depending upon whether your drinking it cold or room temperature. Raisins, bourbon and a rich malty sweetness add to the mystery tastes behind BCBS.

On tap at The Engine Room in Mystic. The only thing not awesome is the head which is great but a tad less than perfect. I highly recommend the only stouts of the same caliber are Dragon's Milk and my all time favorite Ten Fidy.

2013 vintage. 2014 was a little too oily and low on carb for me when fresh. Great beer, either way.
