I like the idea of blending the porter with barrel aged beer, keeps the body of the porter more malty with boozey accents. Smells of malt, molasses and bakers chocolate. Taste is chock full of molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, wood and lots of booze on the finish with some anise as well. Very smooth drinker despite all of the booze

Thanks to HIGHPA for this 22 oz. bottle, received as an extra in the Pipeworks Underground Pipeline. Split with my wife.

The pour is dark, with an aroma like I just snorted some cocoa powder.

Panther Like A Panther tastes like a porter. Soft sweet malts, bitter chocolate bark, touch of roast, scorched dark sugars, with a gentle pinky finger insertion of barrel right at the end, subtle enough that I can’t tell if it’s rum or brandy or palinka or moonshine. Bitterness clings at the end, making the feel a bit harsh. Easy to drink, doesn’t seem like any more booze than a regular old porter.

Rather routine effort. Pretty good beer.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled 2/12/18. Had 3/3/18.

Pours a dark brown, mostly opaque and oily looking, with a half inch foamy head and some soapy lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, oak, chocolate, smoke, cocoa, coffee, molasses, caramel, light vanilla. The taste is malt- not as roasted, chocolate, coffee, a lot of oak, cocoa, some caramel and vanilla. Some bitterness midway through the finish. Smooth, a good medium body, well carbonated.

Kind of different, there’s a lot of oak, more in the flavor, and it really adds to this. Really good and complex aroma, very good flavor. Well worth a purchase.

A really solid porter with subtle complexities to it. Pours with quite a thin layer of head that dissipates quickly. Nose is a mix of roasted grains, plum, vanilla, and cassia bark. Hints of cinnamon and carambola on the palate, with just enough barrel oak to give it some additional character. Good enough for RTJ, and good enough for me.

Bottled 2/14/18; drank 2/23/18 @ the Yarchives.

Black/brown appearance.

A rough pour yielded a small, noisy dark tan head; minimal lace.

Peanut butter, chocolate & medium roast coffee bean notes in the nose.

Creamy medium thick mouthfeel.

Peanut butter & chocolate flavors up front; medium roast coffee bean notes on the finish.

Flavorful & enjoyable; not a mind-blower but certainly one I'd have again.

Black with brownish edges, with a steady pour it generates a decent head of mocha foam, minimal lace.
Aroma is lightly sweet and roasty, touch of molasses, carob, tootsie roll. Not especially barrel forward at all.
Taste is great, smooth roastiness, light dried fruit ester and light barrel note with a hint of oak sweetness.
Subtle and very smooth, silky feel and almost light bodied. Tiny bit of astringency, but overall very nice.
