From a 650ml brown bottle, waxed. 2015 vintage. RBAG winter 2018. Black and oily with a thin tan head. Nose - rich chocolate malt, bourbon and alcohol and coffee. Taste - big and roasty with black coffee, bourbon and dark malt bitterness. Coffee and lingering heat at the finish. Big and rich, a slow sipper. Excellent BA coffee impy.

Pours inky black, medium dark brown creamy head, dissipates slowly leaving nice residual lacing on the glass. Aroma is bourbon, mocha, some vanilla. Flavor is pretty alcohol forward, lots of coffee and bourbon, notes of chocolate, roasted malts, some vanilla. Oddly not hot per se, but the booze is a bit harsh. Some astringency from time in wood. Fullish body, somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

yeah buddy - star of the show (see what I did there?) though the base BA and Spice Wars were really good too. In your face coffee, but not too over the top (like, say, coffee BCBS has become). For a coffee lover great balance...big beer but smooth as hell with a thick almost chewy feel. Very well done!

Benzai (17005) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle [from trade with Cavemanlawyer, thanks!] Shared with Dutchdrebus at his place. Opaque black color, medium sized tan / mocha colored head that lasts for a long time and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, soft roast, bourbon, coffee, vanilla and espresso. Taste malts, soft roast, oats, coffee, espresso, mocha, dark chocolate, bourbon, soft malt bitter. Thick oily texture, full body, suitable soft carbonation. Absolutely delicious!

I was fortunate to happen into an opportunity to try this--bottles brougt to Minnesota but the son of a man who died and was have a memorial gathering at the Blackstack brewery taproom. Seriously good aroma, coffee forward, with depth and complexity through a long finish. Luxurious flavors and notes. Bottle.
