An interesting experiment, and one that fans of BCBS should love. Cuts the BCBS heat a little, dulls the vanilla that's usually present (especially 2014 BCBS), and replaces it with a more chocolatey version of the beer. Nice amount of hoppiness too, although I picked that up on the second day drinking this, so who knows. There's a tiny hint of something funky (which I assume is the fungus on the barrels) on the finish. Thanks to Beerlistman for setting this one up!
