Just good lord man. This is like, all I could ask for in a fucking beer.
If you haven't tried it, try it.
If you can't get it, they just recently bottled it, so trade for it.
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINT MY BROTHERS.
Pours dark as night, tan head that lingers throughout the experience...tastes...it's like candy in a bottle...smells amazing, and coats the mouth. The booze is hidden so well and the bourbon barrel shines through perfectly..
if you see this, bottle it more. JUST SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

Pours black like my soul, tan head. Nice lacing down the glass. Smells of dark chocolate, dark malts, bourbon. Taste is super roasty and the barrel is right there perfectly complimenting this rich malty beer. The thing I like about Hellfighter is it's a nice change from some BBA porters/stouts that tend to get super sweet. And sometimes I love a super sweet beer but Hellfighter keeps it more hot and smokey rather than sweet. Karbach rarely disappoints me, and it really doesn't get much better than BBA Hellfighter.

Poured a pint from the growler I got at Nobi Public House. Almost no head but that might be from the loss of carb. from the growler. Poured a dark brown/black color. Smells of strong bourbon to me. High alcohol content masked very well on this one. Tastes again of good bourbon flavor. This is a solid barrel aged porter, I hope I can find a few more bottles when it hits the shelves.
Poured into a snifter from a bottle today. Needed to re-review and add some points. Perfect pour, nice and black with a thick head. Just a beautiful beer with the best nose ever. Just about perfect for me. Karbach is taking over with these F.U.N. series beers.

On tap at the Karbach brewery tasting.
High alcohol content. The bourbon really smooths it out. So easy to drink. Great dark color. Did I mention the fantastic smell. Just awesome.
Probably the best beer I've tried. Wish it was something I could get regularly, but then it might not be as special. Karbach hit this one out of the park. I can't wait to have it again.

32 oz growler.
Expectations are very high.
A: Aggressive pour into a tulip. Pitch black in color. Light shown through it reveals a very dark reddish brown color. Pretty strong flashlight and fresh batteries. Can only barely see through this beer! Small thin tan head dissipated quickly. Oily light lacing.
S: Wow. Big Beer. Bourbon, chocolate, malts, tiny bit of hops.
T: Very good! Very balanced except for the ABV sticking out a little bit. I expected that however considering it was aged in bourbon barrels and is over 10 percent. Pretty much tastes exactly how it smells. Bitterness comes in the back end. Very nice
M: Smooth and creamy up from with the warmth on the finish. It has a "come hither" mouthfeel to it.
O: An outstanding beer in my humble opinion. This is a big boy beer. Strong. Outspoken. Unique. Right on. Appropriately named, it begs for a fight. After I finish this growler, I think it may have won. Going to let it warm up a lot to see what else I can find buried in it.
