Very good beer, although I would have preferred it a bit more bourbon forward. Tasted alongside coffee BCS and a KBS, so that may have affected my score.

Bomber from ksurkin, thanks bro. Poured a pitch black silky body with a tiny ass light beige head. Aroma is sweet sugary bourbon, dark fruit skins, sugary, plum and prune, seems almost vinous, burnt marshmallows. Flavor isnt as sweet, burnt toast, dark fruits, sweet bourbon, very light sweet coffee notes. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Solid but hoping for more.

Oh, another amazing beer by Alewerks? Didn’t see that coming. This is like desert in a bottle. Aroma is huge amounts of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and vanilla. Absolutely dark as night. This tastes like someone took a piece of chocolate cake and drowned it in coffee, vanilla then poured bourbon all over it to finish it off. It’s absolutely delicious. It’s sweet but not cloying. I can see something like this getting way too sweet and rich, but the bourbon cuts that. The said bourbon isn’t overpowering. I’m not a huge fan of bourbon barrel beers, but this one and their bourbon barrel porter are both excellent. This one isn’t as heavy on the bourbon as the porter in my opinion. Overall this is a solid BBS. I love the beers Alewerks brews, I’m glad they’re so consistent. Cheers.

MadRobin (2505) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 2, 2015
On tap at Whole Foods in Market Square, Fairfax, VA. Opaque, brown-black with a thin tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate, roasted coffee, licorice, bourbon and oak. Taste of bourbon, roasted coffee, chocolate, licorice, roasted malt and vanilla. Nicely balance complex blend of dark flavors. A little heavy on the bourbon, but it still give the other flavors room to shine. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
