Hopes were low for this one after suffering through a Perrin Grapefruit IPA. Figured thiw was another upstart with no business barrel aging. Wrong! Artful use of the barrel on this one. Does it taste like Whoppers? Nah. More like Milk Duds though, and that works for me.

Growlers of this are worth trading for at a modest premium. Wonderful beer. Go get.

Pours thick dark black with a good one finger tan head that has good retention. There is some nice lacing also around the glass

Smell is awesome there is a rich chocolate note forward before a nice candy like presence of Malted milk comes in giving the brew a super creamy milk chocolate aroma. Some good amounts if bourbon along with hints of oak finish in the nose.

Taste is also great. Bourbon and hints of oak are more on the front end relative to the smell but persist nicely throughout the whole brew. More rich milk chocolate comes in midway through the swallow and persists thought the brew with notes of roasted slightly charred malt.

Mouthfeel is great moderately thick with mild carbonation keeps this soft and drinkable. Lots of stickiness from the malt and slight roasted bitterness. Nicely balanced.

Overall this was a great imperial porter tons of rich creamy chocolate notes and a mild bourbon presence. I would love to have some bottles of this to put away and see what happens.

Sampled on draft 22 Mar 2014.

A: Dark black body, tan head with decent retention. Nice lacing.

S: Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. Malty sweetness. Bourbon and oak are hinted.

T: Bourbon and oak lead, and carry through to the finish. These are undertones, and not overbearing. Milk chocolate comes in quickly, and goes to the finish, with the roasted malts coming out neat the end. Not quite a malted milk ball, but pretty damn close.

M: Thick, with soft carbonation. The malts leave a lot of sticky sweetness on the palate, to complement a slight bitterness in the finish. Well balanced.

O: WOW! If you visit the Perrin tap room, try this...it's not perfect, but it's really, really good.
