Poured into Libby stout glass. No bottle date present, assuming 2013.

A: Deep, dark brown, medium thick pour. About a finger of head that dissipates quickly, leaving just a slight covering across the surface. Mild lacing.

S: Bourbon, dark chocolate, roasted malt.

T: Fairly heavy bourbon taste up front fading to dark chocolate and a coffee finish.

M: Smooth as silk, mild carbonation. Medium heavy. No real notice of the alcohol for a 12% beer.

O: Very good. Definitely starts bourbon heavy, but some of the complexities that follow are quite enjoyable, combined with a silky smooth delivery. Certainly worth a try. It would be interesting to see what some age would do to this. Cut the wax with a sharp knife just below the cap, and had no problem.

What a pain to get the wax off the cap! Otherwise quite good. Guess they call this a porter at 12%. Tastes more like a stout to me. Lots of chocolate notes in the noise and north. Heavy booze taste should dissipate after some time. Pretty darn good. Excited for this to age a bit.
