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.

2016 Vintage
~2-3 months from bottling date

Appearance- Pours a black color, brownish hues when swirled, opaque. Half finger of lighter khaki colored head, soapy consistency. Tons of spotty head lacing and alcohol legs on glass.

Aroma- Rich coffee, espresso bean, earthy and spicy. Real sweet, smooth bourbon notes, oaky dryness. Sugary sweetness, chocolates, caramel, molasses, toffee, and vanilla.. Touch of roasted malt and barrel char.

Taste- Coffee bean, rich roast and earthy spice. Lots of oaky astringency, dried tobacco and spice, subtle bourbon notes. Chocolates, roasted malt, vanilla, brown sugar and caramel. Lingering oak and charred barrel.

Feel- Medium bodied feel, fairly creamy and very smooth but leaves a drying aftertaste. Lower carbonation.

Overall- Real nice barrel characteristics shine through. Offers more barrel flavors than bourbon, but the oak, char, and earthy spice is real nice. Coffee hits right up front, rich and roasty, and carries on through. Sweetness balances on the finish. Really nice barrel aged coffee beer.

Man these are really great beers. This one was a 2015, so I expected the coffee to disappear, but it was still very present and the barrel presence was the perfect compliment.

Big coffee flavors up-front, subdued bourbon elements; smooth and light-feeling with modest carbonation. Very enjoyable. One of my favorite porters of all time.

Pours a nice dark chocolate color. Aroma is boozy coffee and roasted malts. Flavor follows the nose with a hint of vanilla sweetness. Has a nice rich body and overall thi has a really good flavor and a great beer all around.
