UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Bomber..from 2SP Newark..surprised by recent price drop on this..20 bucks..wow..couldn’t pass up chance to try this..served a bit cold but warmed up nicely..jet black pour..very little head as expected..aroma is like an amazing coffee infused bourbon treat with a shot of vanilla creaminess..quite memorable nose..mouthfeel is quite complex and full bodied with a richness..dominated by decadent coffee..chocolate..vanilla imperial stout goodness..just the right proportion of everything in play here..the bourbon and coffee play off each other nicely and I thoroughly enjoyed this and found it more complex and better than the regular BCS...awesome beer..upped the score after comparing this with draft kbs..this edged it out..deserving of higher score..

Great. Has the regular version. The coffee is nice. Had this at the Beer Geeks of Northwest Arkansas thanks to Ryan. sjohnny (634) - - JAN 5, 2014
2013 Los Inmortales. Coffee, booze, toffee aroma. Pours black with almost no dark tan head that rapidly fizzles away. Candy toffee mocha sweetness balanced with a coffee/espresso bitterness and a nice boozy warm finish. So amazing. liam1020 (1) - - JAN 12, 2014 does not count
I can’t imagine a tastier beer. Great aroma with hints of bourbon and toffee. Top 5 I’ve ever had.

Poured a dark chocolate color in a balloon glass with little head.
Immediate Bourbon and chocolate in the aroma. As the beer warmed up, more layers of chocolate, coffee,and vanilla.
Mouth feel is moderate.
The taste is highly complex. Layers of chocolate, vanilla, coffee. The finish has a strong Bourbon presence.
The chocolate and Bourbon seem more pronounced in this beer than the Bourbon County stout. The Bourbon whiskey finish is wonderful.
The beer should be served no colder than 50F. As I warmed up the beer from 48F, i noticed a big difference in a few degrees F. At 50F, the coffee kicks in, and the Bourbon becomes stronger. The peak temp should be about 55F. Higher than this, the beer loses some of its intense flavor. Fantastic beer!

The perfect beer? Quite possibly. Tasted along side KBS and blew it out of the water. Huge coffee wave on the front, almost mocha. Velvety, chocolately, the perfect amount of char/smokiness. Bourbon comes through nicely for a 2012, and last the whole time. Great throat burn, soothed by the intense vanilla and buttery sweetness. Thick 1/4 tan head, held for a couple sips before the glass turned to that beautiful used motor oil look. Highly recommended beer. AHSlowhand (46) - - JAN 25, 2014
So dark, and velvety... Tastes and smells like coffee with cream in it. So amazing. It’s going to be hard to keep one of these for five years. 77ships (9774) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2014
355 ml. bottle @ home. Obtained in a trade with AdamJackson! Pours black with an instantly gone small tanned head. Nose is very thick molasses, syrup, bourbon, creamy dark chocolate, typical BCBS goo smell, with lots of roasted coffee, way more than expected here on my behalf. Tastes of very thick molasses, bourbon, caramel, chocolate, very thick syrupy, that BCBS syrup adorable taste is clearly here, mocha ice cream, vanilla, lots more coffee than expected, lots of real coffee bean, chocolate syrup, warming but booze is way less than what I am used with BCBS maybe the coffee covers it, the lesser presence of alcohol makes this my favourite BCBS so far because the unbalanced boozy character of this almost made them close to perfect but not cigar for me, fudge, brownie mix, thick chocolate syrup, vanilla,… Insanely thick & syrupy with lower carbonation, this is insane, I love the BCBS beers so much, this reminds me of the first time I tried a RIS, this is sure an experience. zchall23 (12) - , Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2015
The 2013 BCBCS was pretty close to perfect fresh. The smooth coffee flavor with a great mouthfeel.
