22oz bottle $12.49. I must say this had almost no coffee but was still quite good. Aroma was mostly chocolate and whiskey. Flavor was chocolate, vanilla, barrel, pretty good. Overall much better than the double vanilla and the double brown.

2014 vintage. Bomber served slightly chilled into a tulip glass.

Dry Dock's Double Coffee Porter is a dark brown color with good clarity. The head is thin and settles very quickly but that seems common with the style.

Aroma is both roasty and boozy with the coffee and bourbon barrel coming through in balance.

Flavor is also excellently balanced. The base stout, or porter, is very well done with roasted malts and chocolates. The coffee adds another layer and the bourbon barrel yet another. It's strong and warming after a few sips.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and thankfully low in carbonation. Smooth and creamy, balanced, and enjoyable.

Overall an excellent barrel aged coffee porter. Not too heavy on the bourbon which I really like. A perfect winter sipper.

Draft served in tulip glass; dark brown almost black color; initial foamy head, but dissipated quickly; significant coffee and alcohol aromas; well balanced malt and coffee taste; creamy and tingly (alcohol) mouthfeel. Amazing porter... need to stock up before I leave Colorado!

poured 22oz bottle into snifter. 2014 vintage.

A - Dark coffee brown with a very thin tan head. Fizzes away quickly and does not leave a collar or lacing.

S - Wafts of light coffee roasted malts and dark chocolate are the biggest aromas. Soft and mellow bourbon and vanilla with a hint of cola. The cold brewed coffee really makes this beer smell terrific.

T - The coffee is present and delicious and the bourbon vanilla flavors compliment it nicely, without overwhelming it (this could be from the age). Sweet and roasty and overall sublime to sip on. I pick up a bit of bitter chocolate on the finish.

M - Soft carbonation with a medium feel, smooth and creamy.

O - This was pretty much what I would want in a BB coffee porter. A wonderful coffee flavor and soft, mello bourbon notes. Well done!
