2016 version poured into a snifter. This is the first Bourbon County coffee I have tried and I was not disappointed. This beer's high rating is well deserved. The coffee was not overpowering which I prefer. Anxious to try the '17 version with less age on it.

2017 Vintage in a snifter
Look- Pours a coffee Black with tan head. Head dissipated quickly.
Smell- classic BCBS aroma, I get sweetness and big barrel. Coffee not as prominent on the nose as I expected.
Taste- has all of the qualities of the base (roasty, warm booze, malt sweetness & bourbon) but the coffee adds a spicyness that is unique. Not green peppers but adding richness and bite to the body without overpowering. Good stuff.
Feel- warmth from the barrel, medium body not too thick or sticky.
Overall- big fan of the BCBS series, this stands out for sure. Nice that the coffee is more of a compliment to the base beer rather than overpowering.

Poured and smelled nice and thick, decadent. Taste was spot on. I wanted a bit more body, but it was overall great.

Looked like a nice creamy latte. Very thick / dark head, dissipated somewhat quickly. The taste and aroma was everything you want from a coffee stout. Great beer, slightly overrated as there are a few others out there that are pretty comparable, but would never be turn one of these down!
