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.
