From a bottle, pours an opaque black. It looks very thin and oily, still, no carbonation and almost zero head.

The nose is heavy dark fruit, raisins, plums with lots of barrel and vanilla. The smell of molasses gives it a sweet fragrance. The flavor is vanilla, bourbon, whiskeys, grape skins, mixed with cocoa, molasses and more vanilla. This is extremely well balanced, a bit thin, but that makes it that much more drinkable. The alcohol is barely present, goes down smooth, great mouthfeel. This is delicious.

Murky brown body with a tan head.

Smells mostly of whiskey barrel and a strong vanilla.

Fine mix of chocolate and whiskey that's not palate wrecking. It's a desert beer that's all up front and not really complex. The finish is sweet and not the burn expected of a 10%-er. Needs just a touch of something extra, still I'd love sit down with this and vanilla ice cream.

Smooth full bodied brew that's definitely more of a stout than a porter.

500ML bottle poured into a DFH pint glass. Best by April 17, 2017.

Pours a pitch black color with a medium foamy offwhite/brown head. Just how I hoped it would look. The smell is STRONG bourbon without much else. Obviously this one was aged in whiskey barrels! Taste is, as expected, a strong bourbon flavor. I also get a slight coffee/chocolate flavor in there as well. Finish is very malty that leaves a foam on your upper lip. Heavy bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall this beer is exceptional. The bourbon flavor wasn't too overpowering. They aged this one just the right amount of time. If youre a fan of whiskey aged beers then definitely try this one if you ever get the chance. It's one of the better ones that I've had.

Bottle I brought to share at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Best by 4/17/17.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and bourbon flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty and woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that tastes better than it smells in my opinion.

500ml bottle, beermongers in PDX. An expensive bottle, but having spent a few nights at this once-in-a-lifetime destination, it was an automatic purchase for me.

Served in an oversized snifter - rich chocolate body, creamy thick head. This is really an exceptional beer - the bourbon (jack daniels) casks have not overpowed this beer - rich and decadent with layers of bourbon, vanilla, coconut, dark chocolate, leafy hops, toffee. Creamy and quite enjoyable.
