I have held on to this one for a while and figured that it was bourbon weather so I paired it with a family member of the bourbon this was initially aged in. You can definitely smell the boozy bourbon when the bottle was first opened. The bourbon was not as dominant in taste as it was on the nose, but you could tell that there was some bourbon influence. The taste is pretty close to the regular People's Porter, maybe a little more alcohol taste. I get chocolate notes, a little bourbon and some vanilla and some leathery tannin. The beer was not cloying but sweet. It was very tasty over all but did leave a little odd drying flavor on the finish. Nevertheless, one of my all time favorite breweries and I am happy that they have expanded their bottling distribution so we can try more of the special releases. I will say that even though I do love this one and the original People's Porter, I have never been a fan of the much lauded Sexual Chocolate. I guess the difference in an Imperial Stout vs. a Porter.
