2014 bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours pitch black with a dark mocha colored head that is less than a finger high. No lacing and the head vanishes almost immediately leaving a small ring of foam around the glass.

Aromas of sweet bourbon, vanilla, maple, and a nutty hazelnut type of smell.

Taste is awesome! Enormous bourbon and vanilla up front. Roasted malt, chocolate, hazelnut. The maple definitely is there but is subdued probably due to the age.

Really smooth and creamy. Not overly viscous or thick. Extremely mellow from the 3+ years of age.

Overall this was an excellent offering! My second beer from Jackie Os, with the first also being a stout, and I think they hit it out of the park with both.

An absolute GEM of a porter once she warms. Thought I wasn't getting any maple until she sat. Thin and extremely flavorful. Could sip on this forever. Slightest touch of abv.

great beer, reminded me A LOT of KBS (in a good way) if there was maple to it. Its strong and a touch boozy but not overpoweringly so. Light carbonation, pours black, small khaki head, great nose of bourbon, maple, and chocolate.
