4.3/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

poured in a pint glass from a growler

it pours dark with a tan to butter cream looking head.
smells like chocolate tobacco vanilla dark malts molasses and bourbon of course.
the bourbon taste is definitely there but doesn't overwhelm the dark malts chocolate molasses vanilla and roasty goodness and warms everything up with a hint of alcohol.
mouthfeel was good but i was expecting something a little heavier from an about 7% porter aged for months in bourbon barrels
i could drink these often but a whole growler at once may not have been the best choice. I will absolutely pick up bottles of this if i see them.

Serving type: growler

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours jet black with a decent one finger tall cream colored head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of warm bourbon, dark roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, molasses and a bit of dark fruit. A bit slow to develop but decent enough once it does.

T - Starts off with the vanilla and chocolate sweetness quickly being joined by the molasses, dark fruits, dark roasted malt and mild bourbon burn. Finish is a little sweet with some light dryness from the booze, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium-Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, dark feel with a bit of booze burn at the end of each sip.

O - I would say this is more of mild bourbon porter. The bourbon profile is quite restrained and the base flavors are still quite noticeable. Haven't seen this one before, glad I tried it while I had the chance.
