Holy Crap, Man! This is what a good porter should be!!! Thanks goes out to grynder33 for the sample. That man knows good beers. Pours out to a coffee black color with a short lived head of foam. Lots of lace, and a lower lever of carbonation. Aromas of smokey roasted malts and grain, wood, dark chocolate and earth. Nice. Taste was full bodied and totally embracing; chocolate, coffee, malt, earth, mild woody notes, sour sweetness, with a bourbon backbone that isn't to prevailant. Perfectly done. Bravo. Mouthfeel was good; some more thickness wouldn't hurt, but I guess if we went that route, we'd be at "stoutville". Good drinkability. This is one of the top 5 porters i've ever had. Highly Recommended.

Next to Bitter Woman,the finest beer ever to come out of Tyranena.The aroma is subtle but distinct chocolate,coffe vanilla, maple, and just the slightest hint of the bourbon. The color is as black as Zorro's cape. If you have let this warm to 58,59 degrees, you will taste all the flavors in the aroma,plus a little licorice, and the bourbon and the cask wood are a little more evident. It is on the swallow when the full but not at all overpowering richness of the bourbon comes through. What a beautiful aftertaste. Four or five times I have heard"I am not a huge fan of Bourbon aged beers,but I would buy this" And that is a 5.0 for mouthfeel. You have to experience the smoothness of this elexiar to believe it. It is the talk of the Wisconsin beer community,and I hope the rest of the country is lucky enough to secure a bottle from the rapidly diminishing supply

Poured a solid jet black into my Tyranena Pint glass. It's cliche, but hey, it was clean.
The head was really nice; a light tan color.
The nose is latte, caramel, Jack Daniel's, mollassis, and pepper.
The taste is so damn smooth. WOW. It's all Jack Daniel's to me. A bit too much actually, slightly overpowering. It follows with an Irish cream finish. The coffee roast disappeared? Would have liked a bit more roast, but all in all, the best 6 dollar 4-pack since Old Rasputin.

Was wandering Woodmans this afternoon looking for something special for tonight. Figured would take a chance on a local.

WOW.

Black. Black. Black. Dark brown head that fades to a thin layer that lingers.

Smells like a very good coffee mocha.

So smooth. So thick. So silky. Slides down easy.

Amazing smooth transition of flavors, blending coffee and chocolate. The Bourbon barrel gives a very mellow tie to all the flavors, just a hint of the oak and vanilla in the back ground. Leaves an after taste like i had a glass of chocolate milk.

Incredible. I'm going back tomorrow for more.

On tap at Wonder’s Pub in Madison’s wonderful Atwood neighborhood at a Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild meeting.

Holy stinking Mouthfeel Batman! This is so wonderfully silky. It just coats the tongue and mouth. Superbly drinkable, did someone say this was an imperial, and barrel aged none the less…no way.

I am incredibly impressed here. This is the best beer I’ve had from this brewery bar none. I was hesitant at first because generally I find bourbon barrel to mean Jim Beam like sludge. Now, I don’t care for Jim Beam and I really don’t like sludge so usually I don’t like Bourbon Barrel stuff. This is different.

The Bourbon is very subtle and more oaky than Bourbonish. The chocolates are huge and plentiful. This is very clearly a porter. The bourbon comes second.

This was my first try and I was frankly too blown away by the MF, Drinkability, and Chocolate in the nose and taste too notice much else. I will try this one several times more and rereview soon.

Oh, the Appearance…nearly perfect. Dark, thick, beautiful and with a nice cream lacing crown.

A very fine beer.
