This review is for the bourbon barrel-aged version of Mogli imperial porter.
Draft pour into a dubbel goblet at the Caldera tasting room in Ashland.
A: Uniformly opaque black, with almost one finger of beige foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.
S: Very sweet chocolate milk dominates the smell, with some vanilla and bourbon adding complexity.
T: Toffee, dark fruit, and vanilla to start with bourbon and bittersweet chocolate emerging later. The finish is smooth and full with bourbon. Bourbon flavor deftly asserts itself without being overpowering or intrusive. The presence of alcohol is also handled well here because alcohol flavors are not detectable.
M: Medium viscosity with low to moderate carbonation. This beer is very smooth and gently warming on the palate. While a heavier texture would not be out of place here, nothing about the mouthfeel of this beer is wrong.
D: This beer is both drinkable and delicious. Despite its spirit-infused imperial pedigree, the palate is not fatigued over the course of drinking a glass. Compared to a Ballast Point bourbon barrel-aged Victory at Sea sampled recently, this beer is more drinkable but less extravagantly flavored (and likely also lower in abv). This beer was sampled by three other beer drinkers unaccustomed to barrel-aged beer and each was impressed by it.

Less porter and more brown ale in appearance, Mogli keeps a lush, almost luxurious brown hue. The head is stiff and thick and resembles a brown cream.
The nose holds a milky, creamy, marshmallow and vanilla. I may get a whiff of chocolate but it's not a lot.
The flavor is just vanilla. Creamy, thick vanilla!
The feel is thick and creamy as well but holds a touch of carbonated bite at the finish.
This is a vanilla lovers dream and a beer served much better after dinner.
