Sorry…no BP today.

I had a bottle of the Bedrock a couple of days ago and also thought it had a pretty hard flavor. I also thought it was bitter, but those may be one in the same. Had a great big nose on it though, with lots of spice and perfume. I wasn’t a huge fan of it this weekend, but maybe it needs a few years to soften up.
