I haven’t had one of the old ones since last year, but to date the 3 I have had over the last 5 years have been the single best BA coffee stout I have ever had. It’s truly amazing how sublime they are. Yea, I’m a fanboy, but this is one of those things that everyone talks about. I don’t know what is so different about those old ones, but they are really something separate than anything else I have had. The only SP coffee stout I have had was the derivation with Rum BA, and I really loved that beer too. So, admittedly my ability to compare to SP is limited. I had Somniphobia from BL/VooDoo that was absolutely stellar also, but I think I’d put the old ass BCBCS above that even. It’s just a gem.
