To finish the night off, Raul will finish the night off.

Thang is creamy, silky, 'good boozy,' and with all that kind of stuff that a real cowboy (like Raul) would love. I mean, Raul is feeling it like menudo while hungover. The right amount of chocolate and bourbon...

Just get it.

Yep!

A deep brown with burgundy hints, 2 fingers of head which dissipated into a thin brown ring. Bourbon aroma up front (mostly oak, with brown sugar and booze), molasses, milk chocolate, brown sugar. The flavor profile is definitely awesome.. Lots of bourbon barrel, charred oak, chalky roasted grains, dark chocolate, ashtray.

This is a medium to full body beer with medium amount of carbonation, making it a bit more refreshing than it should be! I've had this one stashed away since last winter so I'm not sure how it was fresh, but I definitely suggest letting it develop in the bottle.

A bottle marked "Bottled 2008" which has been in my cellar since I received it as a gift in December, 2009. I've poured into a pint glass.

The beer has a very dark brown color. It is too dark to see through. The head is large and made up of good sized bubbles. It has light brown coloring. Good lacing is left behind.

The aroma has a healthy amount of spices. Clove and cinnamon are the most prevalent scents. A chocolately sweetness can also be detected.

The beer has a decent base of dark malts. It is slightly sweet, but my tongue is distracted by the spices. Clove seems to be the strongest flavor, but hints of cinnamon can be tasted (especially in the aftertaste). I am also tasting small amounts of chocolate and anise. The alcohol is well hidden.

The beer is a little bit sticky, on both my lips and within my mouth. It is full bodied, so it feels a little bit heavy. But since this is a winter beer, its fullness seems appropriate.

This si an enjoyable porter. As mentioned above, I received this as a gift, so I can't comment on it's value in terms of the price paid. I can say I would drink it again, but I wont go out of my way to obtain another bottle. I never had it fresh, so I can't be positive, but I feel safe saying that aging this beer for four years has not hurt it.

A - dark as night with a very tight dark tan head

S - warm roasted malts and yeast, cocoa and a hint of spice. Very deep!

T - Mild but good. Malts and dark chocolate, dark fruit, yeast and a hint of roastiness

M - a little thin and only a mild tingle

O - extremely good flavor and scent, only the thinness lets it down.
