Bomber at a very reasonable $5.

Looks great - pitch black with pretty heavy head and it sticks to the side of the glass. Smell is pretty subdued but you can pick up the bourbon scent right when you open it and some vanilla. The taste is chocolate and a roasted flavor, a little woody, then the bourbon comes through and there is a bitterness on the end of it. It's very thin and more carbonated than expected. It doesn't seem to hold up to the bourbon flavor as well as some of the heavier stouts.
Enjoyed this, but I feel like some of the barrel aging might be lost on a thin beer like this compared to many stouts, barleywines, or DIPAs.

22oz poured into Stone IRS snifter.

A solid dark velvet brown look. Aroma has plenty of roasty toffee and chocolate notes, vanilla present as well. Taste has bourbon unlike the smell but certainly not overpowering. Definitely chocolate, vanilla, roast, very very slight chocolate bitterness at the end. Certainly a good BBA Porter - but it leaves me longing for a good BBA Stout!
