A-mazing lace on this beer, it's coating the damn rim. Austere dark brown with a minimal head.

Chocolate, nuts, and caramel on the nose at first, with just a hint of what is to come. Time and temperature reveal a more sinister bitch.

Holy whiskey dick batman, the spirit is strong in this one! Well integrated, and only distracting in the sense that it makes you pay close attention. It is like a small boilermaker using Left Hand Milk Stout, although lactose is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. Not a bad thing, really. Finishes both dry and sweet.

Almost has the classic CCB mouthfeel (Rotund, slick, and satisfying) but not quite as full as Zhukov's or Hunahpu's.

Other than the fact that it is fairly one dimensional for a -bal aged dark specialty, I quite enjoyed this. Especially after choking down most of a HotD Matt.

Sidenote: Maybe they have their reasons and the devil is in the details, but porter? Slightly thinner stout =/= porter.

Glad i got to try this after reading all the reviews. however this bottle has really started to fall off big time. Opened at a tasting group and while there was a hint of hte whiskey on the nose, it was devoid from the taste. After how much i loved cognac sweet stout i had high hopes. Im sure in its heyday this was a great beer, now its an average porter.
