Super black with a quickly fading tan head. The smell is coffee, cover, coffee, bourbon, roasted malt and chocolate. The beer tastes the same as it smells and is very sweet. The oak and vanilla really come out in the taste. This is a super balanced and delicious beer that I would drink every day of I could.

2014 12 oz. bottle poured into a beer snifter. By now you probably already know that this is a world-class beer. Everything about it is amazing! I wish I had more of these in my cellar! The look is oil black with a thin head after the pour. The smell is primarily bourbon, coffee and chocolate, in which those flavors are true on the tongue as well. The feel of this one was creamy and smooth; somewhat thick mouthfeel. Overall, this is a fantastic beer and if you haven't tried it yet, go trade for some. Cheers!

2014 bottle, poured into snifter. Strong bourbon on the nose, not much coffee. Taste is very similar to regular BCBS. Sticky feel, nice aftertaste. Would love to try other vintages.
