On tap during Black Friday at Clybourn

A- Looks like BCBS always does

S - Smells of soft rye whiskey that I expect from Templeton balanced with chocolate and vanilla. The rye has a strong presence that is stronger than I get in normal BCBS

T - Soft vanilla and caramel up front before the rye spiciness comes thru as well as some slight alcohol burn presence. Dark fudgy chocolate. The rye spiciness lingers on in the finish to give the beer some spice to it.

M - Creamy smooth up front with a light burn and astringency to it in the finish

O - This is like regular BCBS but has more bite and alcohol than regular does. The rye makes itself more than the bourbon does.

16 oz. growler. Black body with no head. Smells of whiskey, brown sugar, and fudgy chocolate. Boozy. Tastes much like regular bourbon county up front. Whiskey and sweet chocolate. Boozy. The rye whiskey makes itself a little more apparent with a slight spice that lingers in the finish. Nutty malts and very sweet. Heavy. No carbonation, because of the source of the growler. Doesn't detract, though. Tingly alcohol. Very similar to regular Bourbon County. Just a bit different.
