4.58/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: black body of beer, slim finger of tan foam atop; naught but a few motes of lace trailed behind...

S: potent bourbon, chocolate and vanilla issued forth and persisted throughout the drink...

T: the bourbon and wood, chocolaty malts and vanilla-like accents from the nose were all there, coupled with a strong anise/licorice flavor

M: medium-bodied, low carbonation, low bitterness; vague bourbon barrel vapors in the mouth; the licorice character really wrapped itself around my tongue and stayed there - the best feel of any porter I've ever had

O: completely stunned - not often partial to porters, this one easily eclipsed the very best of 'em - the bourbon barrel aging was superior, coupled with some favorite flavors and feels. Gotta try it.

dark brown pour, rich creamy beige head. massive bourbon aroma right away. tons of vanilla as well. taste is creamy smooth with the vanilla really shining through. lots of chocolate too. the bottle has been sitting for over 2 years now so i dont get much booze. age has done this well. i think im drinking it at the perfect time. body isnt the fullest but its not meant to be for the style. very very easy to drink. awesome!
