BERRIES. BERRIES. BERRIES. Nose is loaded with berries. Flavor is jammy with cocoa and some bourbon. A touch too boozy, but so loaded with berry flavor that I cannot help but enjoy it. A very different take on BCBS, but I admire it.

Bottle @ dangerous bottleshare 5.0 . Pours black with a brown lacing. Aroma of chocolate, sweet berries, sweet fruit jam, vanilla, dark sweet fruits and cherry sauce. You get the characteristic BC feel in the aroma with some sweet berries added and it blends pretty good actually! The taste is sweet and fruity. I get notes of chocolate, sweet berries, vanilla, dark sweet fruits, a dark fruit jam and that massive BC base! The berries blends very well into the taste. This was very good indeed! Massive and different IMPY.

Bottle split 5 ways as part of Dangerous Bottleshare 5.0. Pitch black with some tan lacings on op. Nose is just insane, some bourbon notes but mostly just juicy berries. Taste is super smooth, sweet, loads of berry notes, some light chocolate. I wanted to hate this but I can’t, super tasty stuff!

Drank at the magnificent BCBS tasting in Bodegraven 10/1/2015. Best fruity beer out there. Sweet fruit flavours melt perfectly with the typical bourbon county core. Very nice.
