The only downfall for this beer/ I had a better one over at the IEBC in riverside an hour before this.

Color is average- exactly what you would expect.

Smell- had some bourbon character, but not much (which I actually enjoyed).

Taste- ??? Not impressive... below average compared to other beers out there of the same style. Good Vanilla and prune notes though, but did not maintain any porter flavors.

Mouth feel- Thin...I wonder if they just added sugar to get the SG up.

Overall...Mediocre at best. I was told that their brewer got a high score on his brewers test... Doesn't show.

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.
