My favorite beer. So damn complex and drinkable, huge aroma and flavor. As good as any beer I've ever had. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, dark northwest cherries, freshly picked blackberries, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, butterscotch, oak, and bourbon. Yea I said all that. One bottle I swear tasted a little coffee even. Beyond smooth, and drinks much bigger than the listed 9%. Must be some damn good barrels, and the base beer is also amazing. Reasonably priced and overall perfect every time. Yes, perfect.

I've only rated 95 beers on BA, and only given a 5 to one other beer. The complexity and smoothness of AleWerks BBP put it at the top of my list. I'd match it against any other porter for flavor, but it's so smooth that it remains very drinkable. Suitable for drinking by itself or having with a steak or big burger.
