The nose is warm and inviting. More a dank, rich chocolate hiding behind a fair amount of alcohol. Better depth on the nose than most BA porters.

The flavors are very rich. Lots of differing chocolates come to mind. Hard to pin down just one. It is thick yet velvety. Silky even. And it has a big backbone of alcohol to rest on. Great candidate to age. Ready now, but offering lots of promise for laying down a bottle. It is very mouth coating and has after taste of dark chocolate for days.

Very impressive porter. Had this both in growler and from a bottle and the growler comes across as a bit more angular and sharper. More of a wet stone blanket feel. Both are fantastic. A slight bit thinner than the Cobra stout, but equally worthy offering.

Serving type: growler

Thanks to Kyle2k10 for this bottle, the last remaining bottle from a dangerous wintertime swap. 750ML, corked & caged from 2013, bottle 2021 of 2520, split with my wife.

The pour is dark brown with red-headed highlights & carbonation that could be measured in fingernail widths; i.e. less than one. Dat nose rings out with a strong bourbon forefront, backed by cola & chocolate (which surfaces only after a vigorous swirl). Vanilla, wood have to be teased out. I like the direction this is running.

Immelman Bourbon Barrel Aged Porter (Barrel Roll Series #1) would receive a performance review of "exceeds expectations" in my department. The bourbon has Klumesque legs: strong up front & seem to go on forever. The barrel lends a throaty heat, vanilla, & strong woodiness in the after-burn. Under the staves is a beer...I think. The chocolate is subdued, mild sweetness tangling with black sugar. A bit heavy; could use an infusion of bubbles. But not having any trouble making it disappear. Call me Copperfield, sonny.

A barrel-heavy porter (at least that's what it says on the bottle) that uses the bourbon & wood notes so well that the quiet loss of the base beer is forgivable. Given a more robust porter, I do believe this could swagger with the big boys. As is: a very good beer.
