Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. Metallic nose, overly roasty, some oak, and a bit of chocolate. A little bit of coffee and toffee. A light sweetness on the palate, but mostly just roast. It’s fairly metallic, a little bit of vanilla and oak, maybe a touch of chocolate.

Thanks to my friend Carly for bringing this one back from the brewery. Served fresh.
Pours a murky dark brown with very low visibility. No sign of a head nor any lacing. Light bourbon is the first whiff, closely followed a warm, dry roasted coffee. The scent of oak lingers heavily over all of it, giving an overall effect of dust and char. A sweet syrupy aroma starts to develop as it warms, reminiscent of honey. Clearly a porter in style - it is light in body and rich in flavor. The body is almost cola-like - effervescent and slightly syrupy without any heaviness. Flavors of the charred wood, roasted coffee, and bourbon blend nicely without anything dominating too much. Good, solid beer with enough interest to enjoy.

Bottle courtesy of Don...thank you for the opportunity!
Pours a tawny muddled brown with some rusty highlights. From the get-go, I'm having trouble believing this is a porter.
Nothing about the nose cries porter either. Scorched brown sugars, fiery plums, raisin and booze.
Taste mimics the nose, but the booze just comes crashing down like my self esteem in middle school.
This really isn't very enjoyable at all. Mislabeled as a porter....a sub-par old ale?....and completely overwhelmed by cheap tasting barrel and harsh alcohol. Drinks like a beer twice it's size. Ugh..I can taste a headache here. Davy Jones lockers, ahoy!

Review from notes of a previous tasting. Appearance is dark brown with minimal light passage. A ring of brown head forms and leaves a small amount of lacing. The aroma bring quite a bit of raw oak to the table the gives off a guy quality. I pick up some weird herbal qualities... Basil? The spirit character comes through next and lays down a layer of heavy heat. The taste is very sweet up front with chocolate and some vanilla. Things seems to be a bit out of synch here. The mouthfeel features high carbonation with a medium body. Overall, this brew tastes a little sloppy.

375ml waxed bottle, one of two bottles released at the 4/20 event, into a 7venth sun snifter.
A - Pours a murky brown, with a couple fingers of off-white head that quickly recedes to a ring around the edges of the glass Not much lacing or retention.
S - Lots of caramelized sugar and a little toffee. Prunes and dates.
T - Raisins, dates, and burnt sugar in front, and then it follows with caramel and toasted marshmallow in the back. Some vanilla and almond as well. Nicer than the nose made me expect.
M - Thick and pretty viscous. Carbonation is a touch aggressive, but it ends up nice and creamy.
O - I wasn't sure if I'd like this one after Temerity Fort, but it turned out to be the better of the two. Both are worth seeking out, but I'd rather drink this one all night. It really, really improved as it got close to room temperature. More in line with an old ale than a porter, but a good beer for sure.

a: poured a dark murky brown in color with pale brown highlights and almost no head which barely left any lacing sticking to the glass.
S: mostly boozy but was able to detect some slight toffee, hints of dark fruits and plenty of roastiness with some suagry sweetness.
T: the barrel aging process was more prominent on the palate alongside some dark fruits, roasty malts with a touch of chocolate, vanilla accents. Oaky character but lots booze.
M: the brew was medium in body with low amount of carbonation which had a sweet, boozy, oaky, mild fruity, and silky finish.
O: just an ok barrel aged porter but still was happy to try out
