Bottle shared by kermis. Dark caramel pour with almost no head. Smells like bourbon, dried fruit, vanilla. Tastes like bourbon, dried fruit, toffee, sherry. Medium body, low carbonation and a bourbon heavy finish.

Amazing NBS Bif #2 Offering from @Prager62
Thank You for digging into your cellar to share this gem with me.
Bottle marked “Batch #2 02/12

Pours a deep burnished mahogany. Slight cocoa brown head forms and retreats. Light lacing. Aroma is, Wow! Definitely coming out with bourbon, dark baker’s chocolate, some oak, and toasted caramel.
Taste is amazeballs. Bourbon definitely in the front and middle, but it lets a lot more shine through. Dark chocolate, caramel, a hint of date, a hint of char, and some heat. But all of this gracefully ebbs and flows. This sipper wants to hang with you and tell a long, lovely story. At times, a little peppery nip at the tongue comes through for just a moment. Is it the rye? Is it some leftover hop contribution. I don’t know, but it adds to the mystery, and it’s deliscious.
Mouthfeel is full and round, yet a tad creamy.
Overall, I was elated to finally try this one. I’ve had it on my list for a few years. Lived up to hype…and then some.

Smooth barrel-aged rye beer. Good. A little too happy for my taste, but I can see why the ratings are high on this. Caraway blends in with hops well. Glad to try.

Not bad overall, but some weird off-flavors in there telling me the bottle I sampled did not hold up very well.
