3.86/5 rDev -7.7%
Appearance: dark brown, blackish color. Opaque and with no visible head. Just a touch of lacing that sticks around
Smell: bourbon, coffee, chocolate and alcohol
Taste: opens up with big bourbon and alcohol. It moves towards a porter profile with coffee and chocolate.
Mouthfeel: nice medium body. Noticeably a porter. Some alcohol warmth
Overall: a pleasant and well done bourbon barrel porter. Not super good but tasty and worth while

I really liked the "standard" Up All Night soe I picked this up yesterday to compare the two.Pours almost opaque except for just a slight reddish brown highlight at the bottom of the glass when held to the light,a creamy beige head atop.Aromas of dark fruit and sweet bourbon,there is a slight buttery note in there as well.A nice smooth almost slick feel makes for way to easy drinking.The boubon plays a big role on the palate but doesn't smack you in the face,it goes well with the drunken dark fruit and chocolate/mocha flavors.Wow this is almost too easy to drink because it's not over the top with bourbon and sweetness,a well made barrel aged "big" porter here.

4.05/5 rDev -3.1%
Appearance: Pours a midnight brown color with a frothy tan head that leaves a few streaks
Smell: Ashy and chocolatey, with Bourbon undertones
Taste: Chocolate and vanilla, with ash and Bourbon tones building into the middle; slightly boozy with plenty of vanilla and Bourbon in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; slightly thin for this type of beer
Overall: There are better Bourbon barrel aged beers out there but this is a pretty nice one with well-balanced flavors

Big, huge thanks to Wilson for this guy! Now if I can get the 3" of wax off the neck without slicing my finger off we'll be good to go. Wow, that took some work. The pour is matte black, actually absorbing light. The head is the color of milk chocolate with a wispy ring around the glass that leaves striated lacing. It's purty!
Ah, the nose is what should be expected from a correctly barrel aged beer. Barrel upfront but not over the top. Pecans, caramel, vanilla, and soft coconut with deep inhaling. The base porter is roastier than most with high cocoa content chocolate. A tendril of clean smokiness rises through the mix. As it warms the coffee notes com forward, freshly ground and mouthwatering.
He flavor brings more spirit, a touch of bourbon. The barrel continues to bring all those delicious notes I mentioned previously. There's a good amount of pecan and vanilla mingling with roasty porter. A sweetness pops up mid palate that I didn't get in the nose, that of macerated berries. The coffee notes run softly from front to back while cocoa kicks in on the finish. The roast lingers nicely. Tons of depth with no single aspect beating you over the head.
For a 10+% beer this guy drinks like a 7%er. The body sits squarely between moderate and heavy with a lively carbonation that's silky smooth. A touch of heat pops up on the swallow but is quickly drowned out by dry roastiness. The drinkability is flat out dangerous, no wonder it's encased in wax.
This is a damn fine porter. Roasty, barrel rich, coffee kick, and an insane drinkability. This beer is tough to both put down and stop sniffing. Even handed barrel aging sets this above a lot of bourbon bombs presently on the market. Thanks Wil!
