This is an amazing beer that, in my opinion, rivals a Parabola level beer. It is so smooth and has a great overall taste. At this time, a 91 rating, is too low for this beer. It is so complex with a phenomenal follow-through.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, blue session. Aroma has dark, roasted malts and whiskey. Taste has toffee, bourbon, sticky, sweet malt, roasty bitterness on the finish. Some warming alcohol.

Pours black. Nice brown head with lacing. Aroma of marshmallow, light bourbon. Taste coffee, marshmallow, coffee grinds, vanilla with a faint bourbon finish.

Have had quite a few of the regular 30th anniversary beer and like it quite a bit so was excited to see how the BB version fared. Overall, it is quite similar to the regular version, the barrel notes and bourbon were weak and this beer did not marry well with the BB. Unlike one of my favorites, the BB batch 9000, a very different beer, this beer is a bit of a letdown given how good they are at BA beers.
