Pretty nifty for a porter.

Very boozy.

snagged this in a recent swap. always a fan of dark horse and maple bourbon...? sounds good to me. had side by side with the bourbon 6 legs.

super powerful in your face barrel. the maple is glazed over big bourbon and oak, but I prefer the maple dominance in the 6 legs over this one which is just too heavy on the booze.

A: Very dark brown with light brown ring around head
S: Bourbon, charred oak, sweet chocolate, german chocolate cake, hint of raisin, vanilla, maple, brown sugar, bananas foster. Smells much more intense than an 8% beer.
T: Balanced bourbon, dry oak, bitter baker's chocolate, sweet maple, alcohol, roasty, molasses
M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel with a coating effect
O: Exceeded my expectations, the barrel character melds very nicely with the base. There is enough bourbon and roast to balance out any sweetness from the maple and malt.

Love that this is a 12 oz format!

Smells amazing. No lace, nice ring of foam around the edge. Definitely tastes north of 10%...definitely higher than the labeled 8.25%... not too much maple on the taste but definitely there on the smell. Nice moderate amount of bourbon/vanilla as well as some chocolate in the flavor. Very drinkable as well. Can't wait to try this 6 pairs of legs. Nicely done.
