Extremely pleased with BDCS - it was a bit of a precious trade, so my hopes were high. I had just the one 12oz can to share with six or seven friends, so while the pours were small, we all agreed that the chocolate and bourbon notes make this an exceptional beer. I wish it were more easily procured!

Can poured into fluted snifter.

Pours black as night, motor oil viscosity, thin tan foamy head. Head settles into minimal ring around the glass.

Aroma is roasted malts, some burnt toffee, dark fruits, bittersweet cocoa and a bit of booze.

Flavor has alcohol warmth, bitter baking cocoa, roasted malts and dark fruits including figs and dried cherry.

Smooth as silk, heavy body, lower carbonation.

A great brew, complex and layered flavors. Rich and satisfying.

12oz can, labelled as BDCS 2017, poured into a 14oz snifter glass.

The beer pours an incredibly deep jet black color, oily and inky, incredible viscous with a firm finger of caramel colored head, moderate retention but nice patches of sticky lace cling to the glass. The aroma is very nice, tons of rich, roasted grain, stone fruits, licorice, smooth bourbon barrel, nice charred wood lingers with a light hint of warm booze. The flavors are delicious, super rich chocolate covered stone fruits, cherry, plum, fig, raisin with smooth and rich roasted grains, lightly charred oak, smooth bourbon, light caramel with a hint of vanilla that lingers. The mouthfeel is excellent, sludge in a glass. Heavy full body, tons of body and character, smooth texture, super thick that coats so well yet it finishes with finesse and grace.

Verdict: A really superb barrel aged stout from Ozark Beer Co. A beautiful showcase of chocolate, bourbon barrels and stone fruit flavors, balanced so well and the relatively "lighter' 10.20% ABV really helps the flavors shine without the distraction of a hot alcohol profile. Top notch stuff.
