Hefty chocolate malt, nice slightly smoky bourbon with a touch of heat, milk chocolate and cocoa astringency, slight vanillin from the barrel. Medium bodied, appropriately carbonated, smooth milk chocolate and slight whiskey heat on finish.

poured into a perfect stout glass

another long time want, very generous extra

looks great in the glass, not super thick for the style but definity darkness the glass

nose is a bit subdued, bourbon up front with some vanilla and barrel sweetness.

definitly tasty! barrel upfront, dark Malta slight roastiness but finishes with some vanilla sweetness.

body is medium thick, big for a porter but less thick than a stout, if your expecting a big thick stout this will disappoint you, but on point for a nice porter

overall I'm glad I finally had a chance at this one. it's definity a tasty brew! I bet the variations are fantastic with this solid base!
