Had a sample of this at the brewery and some out of a growler.
First sample was out of a tasting glass and the other out of a snifter.
Pours a black body with a nice tan head.
Smells like bourbon, chocolate, light coffee and toast.
Taste is boozy bourbon in the front carrying over to raisins and fruit cake to finish. Hops are there but subtle.
Full body and balanced with medium carbonation.
Maybe one of the best sipping beers I have ever had. This is where I think the rest in this style miss the boat with over the top representations of the style. Just a great sipping beer. Almost a reverse order in taste profile. Booze in front and not in the finish. Leaves you WANTING another sip, not BRAVING another sip.

Black in color with a small tan head. The head dissipates almost immediately and cannot be revived, even with a swirl of the glass. The beer sticks to the side of the glass, a common feature I've noticed in many bourbon barrel aged beers. Great aroma, dominated by bourbon, with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. The taste follows suit. Full-bodied, yet surprisingly drinkable despite how boozy it is. The bourbon is up front and on your face, which is ok with me but should be noted regardless. I did get tired of this beer towards the end. Very smooth but really hurts from the lack of carbonation. Add those fizzy bubbles in and this is a winner. Without them, it's still tasty, but just falls a little flat.

A - Very, very dark amber porter. Thick pour, with very little foam.
S - First thoughts were of nuttiness, creamy and woody smell in the background.
T - Rich and smooth with a thick sweetness that almost reminds me of ice cream. Very delicious.
M - Smooth all the way through.
O - Tasty porter right here, right up with my favorites.
