A: Black as night. Little head and what is there is heavy and dark

S: Lots of bourbon upfront. a little hint of vanilla, and roasty malts

T: Sweet, with a little bit of caramelized sugar in the initial taste. Dried fig. BOURBON. This puppy had some booziness to it. Almost too much.

M: Slightly rough on the tongue, followed by the heat from the alcohol. Perfect carbonation level.

O: I really like this beer. It has a great flavor, and some booze to make this a great fall sipper. It didn't seem to mellow as it warmed, and the alcohol intensified. I still enjoyed every sip...

Wow. This is a huge brew. Really wow sums it up.

The blackness is full of booze, and you get this huge booziness in the aroma, taste and aftertaste. It overpowers all of everything else this porter has going on.

The roasty goodness that brew could be is completely overbalanced by the booziness. That said, I would still recommend this for a huge beer that does not hide it's hugeness but rather wears it proudly.

Poured from a bottle. Really difficult to get the wax off the top. Not sure how old this bottle is.

A - Pours very dark. Small head with tiny bubbles. Decent lacing.

S - Dates, caramel sweetness, bourbon

T - Nice date flavour up front, then some bourbon, then it is too bitter and astringent.

M - Fairly thin mouth and you can taste the alcohol, however, considering that this is 12% that is to be somewhat expected.

O - Not bad. Wouldn't go out of my way for another one, but it was decent.

*additional note - I drank the second half of the bottle at a colder temperature and it was more pleasant. Some chocolate notes came out and the finish was less bitter.
