2014 vintage poured from a bomber into a snifter. Dark black with an almost white head. Smell was primarily bourbon, vanilla and oak. Taste lead by coffee, with brown sugar, vanilla and bourbon heat. Mellowed as it warmed, with more sweetness and chocolate tones. A very solid BBA porter, interested to try it with some age.
