timberrr (43) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours jet black with a light brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, booze and raisins. Tastes of dark fruits and roasted malts. Definitely an underlying sweet taste with a slightly smokey/teriyaki flavor. Wasn?t real noticeable but I?ve read about a bad batch bottled on 11/19/12...maybe it was in my head. Didn?t notice as much of a hop presence as I thought I would, although there was some bitterness from the hops. Medium to heavy body with moderate carbonation. Overall a decent beer but not as good as I remember it being a few years back.

thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2016
2012 vintage, on draft at the York River Landing (Nov. 2015). BCBS without the barrel aging. It’s got a very, very distinct smell and flavor that reminds me of the BCBS’ marshmallow sweetness. Interesting, unique, and actually a really top-notch imperial stout.

rouhlas (3784) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - NOV 28, 2015
650ml bottle (v2010) shared at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Black color with nice brown head. Malty aroma, roasted, dark dried fruits, chocolate when it gets warmer, caramel, butter, wineous, wood, light alcohol. Sweet and bitter like aroma with soy and some coffee notes. Full silky body with soft carbonation. Probably not a good bottle.

Vestergaard (2091) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle shared in the line for Blåbær Release 2015. Pours a pitch black with a nice, dense, tan head. Aroma is hoppy, roasty, licorice, salmiak, coffee, slight grass. Taste is roasty bitter, hoppy, coffee salmiak. Still fairly sweet. Full body and average carbonation.

4.1
Sarlacc83 (2290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle. 2/19/2010 date. A: Black in a way which would please Batman. Thin, dying mocha head. Lacing. N: Vanilla, cocoa, coffee, black peppercorn, rye, earth, milk chocolate, a hint of toffee and caramel. Smoke and almost like a rough tar. Not gross like that, but it seems like the right description somehow. Light oxidation from its 5 years of age. T: Quite sweet, but not cloying like the latest iterations of Bourbon County Stout. A bit hoppy still. M: Thick, motor oil body, light carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden. O: This was the big time, long ago, before In-Bev took over production and turned BCBS into a call for insulin. Only minor oxidation after 5 years, too, which is impressive.

TorbenJensen (1572) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2015
It’s thick as oil and hangs in thick lace on the glass inside. Smoke and dried fruits rises from the glass estimates vinous association. The taste is very rich and creamy and is heavy in the mouth. Prunes, grapes, plums and port wine fill for the taste buds with the distinct flavor of smoke and oak.
