A collaboration with Bottle Logic. Purchased a 32oz growler on tap at HBS, St. Pete, yesterday, 5/27/20.

Poured at 57 degrees; black with ruby edges; dark brown tight bubbles quickly recede leaving no cap and thin ring; small dots of lace and heavy legs on swirl. Strong coconut aromas upon opening bottle; vanilla, bourbon; boozy exhale. Taste follows nose; bittersweet dark chocolate base; toasted coconut; oaky vanilla middle; chocolate ganache and bourbon ending. Full but not syrupy body; smooth velvety feel; warmth from 12%; medium minus carbonation. Overall, another blockbuster collaboration; well balanced layers of boil and barrel flavors - all scales seem equally weighted; the alcohol, while present, is inviting rather than a distraction; reminds me of Vanilla BCBS, with the addition of an even measure of coconut in nose/on tongue; I like this version slightly better than the V1 variety because of the excellent presentation of coconut here... Can’t stop drinking my growler...
