Big, bold, black and barrel aged. A length conditioning period in bourbon barrels creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. Additional flavors include bourbon, vanilla, and oak.

Smells like cheap coffee and cheap barrel. This wasn't tasty at all.

Had this along with bourbon-barrel-aged Frammy and the classic Framinghammer in Philadelphia during the rollout of Jack's Abby in town. I really don't get the appeal of these thin, average porters.

App: Much blacker/darker stiller than Bourbon Framingham. A total black lagoon, no lacing.

Smell: Opaque, glue, acridness, hardware store, burnt cocaine.

Taste: Coffee forward, cold brew. Other than that, not much else. Cocoa powder, hints of strawberry and Pantera Rosa (or Tigreton?). Watery finish.

Mouthfeel: So thin it hurts. Low carb, body, flavor. Like leftover black coffee.

Overall: Very drinkable, but it lacks any complexity or excitement.

similar to the rest of them. just has a slight unpleasant edge that the others do not.

2016 vintage. Served cold in a teku

Appearance: black and kinda thin with a huge khaki head. Nice lacing

Nose: acrid coffee, chocolate, some oak, some alcohol

Taste: burnt coffee, char, dried fruits, some oak, creamy mouthfeel

Overall: the vanilla version was better; hands down. The coffee is a bit harsh and takes away from the delicious base beer. I really don't get the Bourbon or the barrel character. It's a very good beer but not world class IMO.
