2017: Tasted alongside the 2015 and 2017 BCS. Pours a dark black with a thin head that is gone in an instant. Smells of strong espresso, caramel, roasted malts, bourbon, and dark fruits. Tastes of espresso (not too much though), sweet chocolate, wood, bourbon, light caramel and toffee, dark fruits (plum, raisin), lots of sweetness, and very light vanilla. Heavy body with light carbonation. Overall probably one of the best if not the best barrel aged imperial stout I've tried. Superior to both BCSs.
