2012 vintage; drank 9/20/14 on draft @ 312 Urban Block Party.

Midnight black hue.

Dark khaki head; almost no lace.

Sweet cherry & caramel nose, with booze heat.

Thick mouthfeel.

Sweet cherry & oak flavors up front; a heavy dark chocolate finish. A touch too boozy as it warms, but enjoyable.

Got to try it yesterday. Another excellent variant. I heard they never really bottled it because it was too boozy initially but it's definitely settled well now. Sweet, oaky, rich and delicious.

A - Looks like BCBS and all the other variants

S - Sweet caramely bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and more caramel

T - Chocolate, caramel, sweet bourbon, vanilla and milk chocolate. Really thought this one was much smoother and sweeter than the regular BCBS which is a good sign that the BT barrels are having a large influence.

M - Creamy body with slight alcoholic burn in the finish from the bourbon as well as some oak spice that lingers on

O - Good BCBS variant with more caramel, sweet vanilla, and chocolate compared to the normal barrels
