Nearly black in color with soft carbonation. Intense vanilla and wood notes with a mild booziness. A nice roasted malt aroma, dark chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Just a bit of caramel sweetness. The flavor is quite nice with a nice chocolate, caramel, and roast combination along with the intense barrel flavors of bourbon, wood, and vanilla. Still a touch boozy, but enjoyable.

Thanks to canadianghetto for bringing this up from houston growler style.

The carbonation was little low on this, maybe due to the fact it was a growler.
The color is dark, not as a ris but definitely an imerial porter. dark with brownish notes.

THe smell was woody, bourbon, sweetness.

The motuhfell was thinner than I expected, but had a nice heat presence from the burbon.

THe taste was very similar to older viscosity with out the mega burbon overload OV has. It was a nice roasty, toffee, flavor with burbon backing it up. not over done.

Overall this is a descent beer for a young brewery whom continues to gain popularity.

Glad I got to try this one.
