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! (1,728 characters)

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. (668 characters)

A: pours black with a finger of dark tan head that fades into a frothy ring with good lacing.

S: Sweet chocolate and creamy coffee up front with oak and vanilla following. Bourbon brings up the finish without overwhelming.

T: Semi-sweet chocolate with a bit of vanilla and char at first followed by oak, some robust coffee, and bourbon. The finish is only lightly boozy.

M: Medium-thick body with lowish carbonation, this beer is a little on the thin side for a big barrel-aged beer.

O: A really enjoyable beer overall. The only real downfall of the beer is its body which I would like to be a bit creamier. (619 characters)

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Label says 11/20/14.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Sweet aroma of mild oak notes plus some vanilla and caramel.

T- The sweetness continues with a pronounced note of vanilla plus some more mild oak. Slightly medicinal aftertaste. Very smooth for the ABV. The coffee finally starts to come through after multiple consecutive sips.

M- Quite viscous for a porter with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- Really good stuff, though I got more coffee out of the base beer and would actually prefer it to this BA version. Still, well done. (803 characters)

Delicious. Popped open a bottle at the Monstro release at NoDa brewing this morning, 11/1/14. A little boozy in the nose, but a good balance of bourbon and the coffee and roasty porter flavors on a quick follow up. Not too heavy, but tons of flavor. (252 characters)

Porter brewed with honey, coffee added, and aged in bourbon barrels. Poured from a bottle into a Lost Abbey Teku. The pour is very dark (practically black) and sports an impressive persistent 2.5 fingers of coarse tan head that leaves behind some big clumps of lace. Lots of rich, boozy bourbon notes on the nose along with dark chocolate, toasted oak, and vanilla. I don't get as much coffee on the nose as I expected. I'm sure it's there, but the predominant notes are rich, sweet notes, not roasty.

Full body and a round, creamy feel. Sweet malt up front, vanilla, marshmallows, chocolate sauce, and lots of bourbon. Molasses, toffee, creamy milk-like sweetness, and a slight hint of dark fruit. Not boozy, but definitely warming and doesn't try to hide all of the alcohol. I'm missing the characteristic roastiness one expects from a porter and whatever coffee is there is not at all assertive. Rather lacking in complexity. It's all sweet, dessert-like flavors and no bitter roastiness to balance it out and add an extra dimension. Finishes warm with a pleasant bourbon-and-butterscotch-candy lingering flavor.

If I tried this blind, I'd never have guessed it was a porter. The beer drinks like a bourbon-barrel-aged milk stout. That said, I have to give it a good taste rating because it does taste really good. I'll have to try the standard (non-barrel-aged) version to see how it drinks. I would definitely buy this beer again. (1,438 characters)

22 oz waxed bottle. Dark brown/black colored body, small tan head with nice retention and lacing. Aromas of bourbon, molasses, wood, and coffee. Up-front on the taste is coffee and bourbon, followed by a sweetness probably from the honey though it is not a distinct honey taste. Pretty good. (291 characters)
