Appearance - The beer poured a murky black color with a deep tan colored head. Lil carbonation was visible.

Smell - The booze was very present in the big boozy nose. Spice was hard to detect.

Taste - The nutmeg and cinnamon were still very present. The chocolate of the base beer has turned dry at the mercy of the bourbon and its bite that becomes more evident at the finish.

Mouthfeel - The porter showed modest carbonation and nice warming presence.

Overall - The beer was not overly impressive, but had a nice taste. It is not something I would pay big bucks for the right to sample.
