On-tap at the Beer Bistro

Perfect mocha head that dissipates into 'swirling cloud formations', on top, as I drank.

Aroma is the half the beauty of enjoying this. Full of bourbon, vanilla and chocolate raisin pastry.

My first impression on taste was, this is BCS lite. Well crafted bourbon, silky cocoa and raisin. As it came up in temp, all the above accentuated into a plethora of pure decadence.

Mouth well blanketed with creamy goodness that lingered. Very rich indeed.

Really close to a BCS. I tend to imagine it maybe a tad better!?! I feel fortunate to have stumbled on this today-maybe a once in a lifetime experience. Besides BCS, this is my favorite craft taste experience.
