On tap at Concordia Alehouse

A: black with a rich, creamy, surprisingly light (in color) head

S: a bit roasty with some vanilla and dark chocolate.

T: out of this world! Slight roasted coffee flavor that isn't too bitter mingled with vanilla and dark chocolate with hints of oak and bourbon. I'm amazed at how distinct, yet subtle and well integrated each of the flavors are.

M: as wonderful as this beer tastes, the mouthfeel is the real high point of this beer. Licious and creamy, but just well carbonated enough to not be sludgy.

D: Wow. This is easily a top five beer. Not sure of the abv, but if it's big, it's well hidden. I could drink this all night long every night for a month and not get tired of it

One off brewed for Oregon Brewers Fest from my understanding. It was not barrel aged but used wood from bourbon barrels in the process, and is an imperial porter but there is no category for that on BA.

Pours a very dark brown with a small head around the sides of the glass. Aroma is outrageous. Like the first sniff of chocolate milk back in elementary school. Then add extra cocoa and some espresso, vanilla, and bourbon. Taste is to die for. All kinds of chocolate, french vanilla ice cream, bourbon, dark roasted coffee, and the smallest hop bitterness for balance. Minimal alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is the best feature. One of the smoothest beers I have ever had. By far the best of the style I have ever had. Drinkability is unlimited. If they bottled this it would be a legend.
