Now had on three separate occasions so I feel like I have a solid baseline. Latest was a growler fill enjoyed same day. The look (like a deep black cola with minimal tan head and lacing) and feel (minimal carbonation and a medium body) are only a little above average for a robust porter. But the smell (pungent malt and espresso and biscuity yeast) and taste (following the smell, with coffee bitterness, malty tang and wonderful dank aftertaste) more than make up for it. The overall experience is wonderful. I've had this on a sunny patio, in the elements on a cold and rainy night, and now sitting at home on the coach, and on each occasion the beer stood out positively. Maybe not the heartiest and most robust porter around, but it's some fantastic drinking just the same.

Enjoyed the one-off Buffalo Trace barrel aged version of this beer. Excellent.

Appearance is great. Nice creamy head & retention.
Wonderful flavor, almost smoked porter-ish in this barrel aged variant. Bouquet opens as it warms.
Great body & mouthfeel. Love this one and would welcome more BA versions!
