Had this on draft at an event in early 2017. Believe this was released in 2013, so it's a little over 3 years old. I'm framing everything below from that aspect.

L - Pours dark, with a very thin head line
S - light chocolate less so than regular. a little rye barrel on the nose
T - chocolate similar to regular BCBS. This has obviously had a little time to age, which is nice because the whiskey portion has mixed in nicely. You can definitely tell it's a different liquor used.
F - A tad thinner than regular, but still about right.
O - Very nice. Wish I had time to do this side by side for the other BCBS that were on tap.

Unknown vintage; drank 5/14/15 on draft @ Fat Pour.

Black appearance.

Minimal khaki head; minimal lace.

Cherry, milk chocolate & mild wood notes in the nose.

Thick mouthfeel.

Maraschino cherry & mild milk chocolate flavors up front; a nice oak finish. Sweet but not cloying; delicious.
