adamjackson (522) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – AUG 6, 2012

Acquired in a trade. 

A – Poured a lighter black than expected. Pitch dark in the bottle. No head 

S – mild fruit scent. mostly blackberry scent followed by vanilla and oaky charred scent 

T – Up front chocolate malts and hints of spices. Mild alcohol burn with some campfire aspects. Some bourbon but it’s weak. Finish has hints of blackberry and blueberry. 

M – 20% carbonation. medium to heavy body. sweet fruity finish 

O – I was expecting more from this. Pretty disappointed compared to other BCBS offerings.
