Performed blind taste test with this, Ozark BDCS, and KBS. This was the winner. The best aroma and the smoothest taste. I was very surprised, but I guess I shouldn't have been. Bit of coffee, bit of bourbon, bit of sweetness. All went together so well.

2013 vintage poured into a Teku glass.

A - Black with almost no head at all. You can see the thickness as it pours.

S - Coffee and sweet bourbon mostly with a cherry fruitiness.

T - Follows the nose with roasted coffee and bourbon. A bit sweet with some fruit notes.

F - Perfection. Extremely thick, syrupy, and sticky with just a hint of carbonation.

O - I loved this beer and would like to try it fresh to get a some stronger coffee flavors.

2014 vintage bottled in November. Nose very reminiscent of BCBS, your classic bourbon profile with some dark fruit and deep, roasty coffee creeping in the backdrop. Coffee flavor comes in waves up front and as I swallow but the flavor itself is pretty muted already at just beyond half a year old. Enhances the roasted malt dynamics of this big, viscous, beautiful beast of a beer.
The only way InBev makes there money off me and it's worth every penny every time, the whole lineup is killer and this one definitely stands in attention as the better 12oz offering.

Strong coffee and chocolate taste and smell, very little bitter aftertaste. Very nice. We're about to drink a KBS so should be interesting to compare.
