On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours black, deep dark black, with a small mocha colored head, about a quarter inch, and very little lacing.

Smells like maple, bourbon, chocolate, and roasted malt.

This is a fairly subtle BA job here, a little bit of bourbon flavor, not overpowering at all, with a good amount of vanilla, chocolate, and maple of course. The maple lends some sweetness to the beer, but it's not overpowering. Luckily does not become cloying.

Medium bodied, slightly thin for the style, but I guess it is a porter, after all. Creamy, smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Low carbonation, and very drinkable.

Another great BA beer from Dark Horse. The BA'ing is not quite as powerful as some of their other creations, namely BAPt5, but this is still very tasty.
