On-tap at FoBAB. Served in a plastic cup, multiple tasters consumed.
A - Looks a lot like regular BCS. Thin tan foam dissipates to a thin collar, minimal lacing. Black body with glints of brown at the edges.
S - This one was the second-most similar to regular BCS (after 'Low Storage'), and without virtue of a A/B comparison (no pun intended) discerning subtle differences is quite difficult. Compared to the Low Storage I found the oak and bourbon character in this one spicier, and the dark fruits to come out a bit more in the malt profile.
T - The taste is a bit more mellow in regards to the whiskey and oak. There's your usual chocolate fudge, vanilla, light roast, and such, as well as an odd vinous note in the finish that didn't quite jibe with everything else.
M - Typical full bodied, very low carbonation BC. Viscous and chewy, smooth texture, well-concealed alcohol, some lingering stickiness.
D - Something about this one seemed a bit off to me, and it wasn't vastly different from regular BCS. I'd happily drink it again if it was at a festival, but it'd be low in priority compared to many of the other variants.
