3.76/5 rDev -6.7%
Pours black and opaque with a fan light tan head with good retention.
Smells of caramel, vanilla, cocoa, and figs. Some light toasty notes.
Tastes of caramel, fig, brown sugar, cinnamon and cocoa. Hint of smokiness.
Medium body with tingly carbonation on the back of the tongue.
A fairly decent but slightly cloying porter. A lot of good flavor and aroma, but the fruity elements are a bit rich and sweet, so the beer is a bit harder to drink than it could be. Despite that, enjoyable enough that it's worth a try at the right price.

I picked up a bottle of this on a clearance, liked a few other Black Diamond beers that I had so was hopeful. Great looking beer, the bourbon really comes out in the smell. Just a little bitter aftertaste but other than that a wonderful beer. Very balanced and easy to drink and does not go down like a 8.5% beer. Very impressive and I would certainly pick this up again if I could find it at the same price.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Almost black. Transparent. Nice khaki head. Wispy.
Smell - Lots of bourbon. Chocolatey. Rich vanilla and caramel. A little bit of roast but not much.
Taste - Sharp whiskey. Vanilla. Chocolate comes out better than the whiskey version. A little bit of roast.
Mouthfeel - This seems to be a bit fuller than the whiskey version. Boozy. Medium carbonation.
Overall - The bourbon barrel works better than the whiskey barrel.

Review from 9/2010 notes. Poured into a Seattle Beer week pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black in the glass. Thin light brown head that dissipates slowly into a ring around the glass, slippery lacing. Aroma of bourbon and toasted malt. Flavor of dark malt, oak, bourbon with vanilla developing in the middle, finishes with a dry slightly astringent dark malt flavor. Medium bodied. Flavors are right for a bourbon barrel aged porter, but needs a bit more support in the malt and more toasted malt flavor. The bourbon overwhelms the basic porter in this one. Enjoyable enough, but needs more flavor depth.
