Appearance- Pours nearly completely black, you have to search hard for some ruby amber hues. One finger thick mocha, deep khaki colored head, fine lacing on sides of glass.
Aroma- Deep roasted malts, charred and bitter. Wonderful cocoa, chocolate aromas. Everything wrapped up in a sugary sweetness, and soft sweet oaky bourbon notes.
Taste- Charred oak, sweet bourbon notes, vanilla and chocolate creaminess. Nutty and smoky character, roasted caramel malts, cocoa, molasses. Overall fairly sweet, just a touch of bitter elements.
Feel- Medium mouthfeel, but very creamy and silky. Moderate carbonation.
Overall- Beautiful rich and creamy beer, with sweetness enhanced from the barrel aging. Bourbon notes are quite forward and boozy, but they really do compliment the underlying flavors rather than overpower. Lots of layers of complexity to the flavor profile, vanilla, chocolate, molasses, sugar, nuts, earthy qualities. Excellent beer to sip and enjoy.

A. Dark, dark brown.Some dark amber hues at edges. Minimal head of fine bubble head. Low viscosity.

S. Charred dark malts sitting on top of bourbon-soaked oak. Notes of coco, tobacco, toffee, cappuccino, and nuts.

T. The taste follows the nose closely - dark malts and bourbon-soaked oak dominate. Notes of oatmeal, coffee, hazelnuts, creme, and pecans. The coffee flavor combines with the generous hop bill to create a strong bitterness.

M.Moderate body, kind of thin, moderate carbonation, and fairly smooth.

O. The best part of this beer is the way the coffee/nuts/coco flavors meld with the hops to create a porter that's packed with flavors, but not at all sweet. Highly recommended.
