P: Pours a super dark body with ruby hues and a massive cavernous cap of cappuccino head. Thick bubbly lacing with nice retention.

S: Vivid bourbon aroma swells from the glass and encompasses a base of roasted cocoa, vanilla, toffee, faint caramel and chocolate chip muffins.

T/M: Sweet dark fruits, toffee and milk chocolate strike first then disappear to bitter vanilla biscotti coffee with a follow up of cocoa and bourbon. Taste of salty caramel, slightly smoked wood chips and cinnamon in the finish. Crisp moderate body with a semi dry finish.

O: Bourbon barreling is exhibited well in this robust porter. Complex flavors that change throughout the session. Easy drinking for the Borbon flavoring and a nice crisp feel. A great porter for sure. Cheers!

1 pt 9 fl oz. bomber from CM.

A - dark black with brown overtones. Two finger creamy head. Dissipates at a normal pace.

S - chocolate, toasted dark fruit.

T - more of the same. Some back end smoke. Slight vanilla notes in the finish as well. Start picking up bourbon notes as the beer warms.

M - good balance. Carbonation is a touch on the low side, which I prefer with porters, but there is enough to keep it solid.

O - a solid porter all around. For the people.

Picked this up awhile ago. No date on the bottle.

Pretty black with a slender, creamy ring of a head for most of the glass. Very woody nose...bourbon, light cherry and fruity esters, bitter chocolate, coconut. As nice as that sounds, it is fairly sharp which doesn't allow me to really stick my nose in and enjoy it. Smooth chocolaty malt flavor with some tartness leading to oaky, more vanilla bean qualities and finishing sweet and nutty. Much deeper and better integrated than the aroma. Creamy and slick with some dryness after the swallow. I imagine I'll grab another bottle of this some day.
