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 Tim!

A: Dark brown with a small bubbly head.

S: Dark chocolate melds with caramel and a dash of coffee. Tons of bourbon and vanilla. Light oak.

T: Lots of caramel with notes vanilla and oak. Bourbon is pronounced. The beer is moderately sweet with a little brown sugar and roast.

M: Medium body with lower moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is thin and watery.

Overall: Nice. Great barrel profile. This was much better than expected.

Thanks for sharing this one FosterJM!

Dark brown without any clarity. Brown and khaki head, though thin, leaves the glass messy and sticky.

Wonderful, rich, and inviting aroma consisting of bourbon, oak, roasted malt, vanilla sweetness, and some chocolate and coffee. A complete aroma if I ever smelled one, without being over the top or too powerful with bourbon and alcohol sting. Subtle, yet rich and complex.

A fine tasting beer with a mellow bourbon and vanilla accent throughout, though the base beer still shines through: a rich, chocolatey, somewhat smoky porter.

Medium mouthfeel. A tad thicker and luscious would have put this beer in to the upper echelon.

Smooth drinking, though full and rich, subtle yet delicious--really a standout. This is without a doubt my favorite beer from Hangar 24!
