This variant in my opinion is vastly better than the standard BCBS, with the added element of coffee but also due to the reduced sense of booziness. Lots of spice coming through and the coffee balances well the sweet notes offered by the bourbon both on the nose and the taste.

2014 edition---nice, bit a little one-dimensional and doesn't really highlight the coffee aspect....

All BCBS varieties were absolutely outstanding this year, but at the GI tasting event the BCBCS stood just a tad lower than the others. The mix is about 90% BCBS to 10% coffee, which really drags down the ABV but even still doesn't add as much of that Intelligentsia flare as you might think (my favorite coffee in the city, hands down!).

2016 version. Solid beer but smell of coffee was not fresh. It was more of what is left after making the coffee
