4.13/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours pitch black with only a tiny ring around the edge of the glass and no visible carbonation. Aroma of bourbon and dark toasted malt. Flavor a nice balance of bourbon, toasted malt, chocolate and vanilla, finishes with bourbon, dark malt, vanilla and light hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation in the taste. A smooth, bourbon forward porter. Flavors are well integrated well melded. Body a little lighter than I expected from the aroma, color and looks, but still a flavorful and well made barrel aged porter. Well done.

4.23/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured a deep brown with good carbonation presenting a tannish colored cap. Head retention was pretty good as it resedes some light curtains of lacing and a small rings sticks to the edges of the glass

S: Smooth cocoa, roasted malts, moderate bourbon and a hint of cinnamon

T: Initial taste was of smooth rich chocolate/cocoa with a moderate bourbon barrel presence. This beers taste is dominated by a smooth chocolate goodness with a healthy roast, light coffee. There is a moderate char and bitterness on the finish with more cocoa and caramel.

M: On the full bodied side, impressive, creamy and decadent. Well cabronated.

O: Great job. The balance of the barrel with base beer was right on IMO. However, I was looking for a little more of the cinnamon and clove they refered to in their description.
