This is for 2014 BCBS. Tasted in April of ‘18. Coffee has really faded at this point. Barrel coming through really strong but lacking other flavors. If I had tasted it a year or 2 earlier with more coffee/chocolate the rating would likely be higher.

Love all the BCBS variants and this was no exception as it was absolutely outstanding. The mix seemed to be about 90% BCBS to 10% coffee, which lowers the ABV which isn't always that bad when you start with such a big beer. Well done once again.

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a finger of dark tan head which fades quickly into the ether without any lacing
S: Smells of coffee with some bourbon notes and a hint of chocolate
T: Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, some oak, caramel and vanilla. Swallow is more coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate with some lingering molasses like dark sugar notes
M: This beer is big and slightly chewy on the palate while also being slightly silky. Carbonation is low but adequate for the style and ABV while the beer has a drying finish.
O: Overall this is a really great beer. The flavors are really good and the complexity is very nice as well. Fairly coffee forward but the other notes are still able to shine through. Definitely worth trying if you can get it.
