Pours from a 12 oz bottle bottled 11/15/13

Its black, with a light right of foam around the edges, it went away very fast. Looks just like regular BCBS.

Smell is vanilla, roasted malt, bourbon, coconut, espresso, and coffee

Taste is really nice, starts with a huge blast of coffee, then the regular BCBS notes come shining through, vanilla, bourbon, roasted notes, coconut, toffee, espresso, alcohol heat on the finish

mouthfeel is full and coating, light on the carbonation, impressive

Wowzers, this is a good one, I am glad I got a couple bottles, get them if you can!

I've never rated anything a 5.0. However, the 2013 BCBCS is best in class.

The beer pours deep black, chocolate-colored head that quickly dissipates, and a pungent chocolate-coffee aroma. The taste is dark and milk chocolate at the same time, intense coffee, burnt caramel sweetness, vanilla, tannin, and whiskey. The beer has a surprisingly light mouthfeel, and finishes with a bit of tannin and green apple.

BCBCS is the closest thing to perfection in the coffee stout style.
