Such a unique beer. Almost like a stout liquor. Amazingly smooth for the alcohol content. Rich thick molasses flavor that never let's up. A truly great beer! Compared 2014 edition with 2014 BCS and this won out, though both are great.

Had 2015 version with 4 months of age. Good, though not as good as previous versions. Feel additional bottle aging would help.
