Bottle to snifter. Side by Side Comparison of 2017 Bourbon County Stout(1), Coffee Stout(2), Northwoods(3), Barleywine(4).

LOOK: dark black, brown head fades, similar to BCBS.
AROMA: coffee drowns out other aromas found in BCBS, but the coffee is unique. Super Smokey.
TASTE: coffee , vanilla, bourbon all work well together. As I drink BCBS and BCBCS together, the coffee seems to "linger" better. BCBS is seeming overly sweet in comparison.
FEEL: thinner than BCBS, but a touch of carbonation cones through.

Pours extremely dark with minimal kakhi head that fizzles out quickly. Big coffee aroma, chocolate and barrel presence are there as well. Huge coffee flavor, base BCBS beer is faintly intact, lots of dark chocolate and bourbon barrel on the finish, pretty sweet but not cloying. Carbonation is perfect, the beer is pretty chewy and syrupy. Overall an excellent variant, adjunct is still intact a year later. Pretty amazing brew, especially considering it is available nationallly.

2017 version. Very decent. Strong coffee notes and boozy upfront.
