Drinking this with only a couple of weeks past it's bottling date.
Drinks and smells great. Bourbon, Vanilla, with a little dark chocolate on the back. Good carbonation
This is a really nice beer! I actually would argue that it's almost as good as BCBS.

BCBS's little brother. Smooth and medium-body with the heavy, aggressive taste of bourbon barrels. A-rated.
