Notes: Collaboration with Bottle Logic

Weighing in at over 12%, this imperial porter was aged in bourbon barrels and meticulously layered with maple syrup, pecans, cocoa nibs and vanilla beans.

4.07/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours espresso colored with a thin beige cap that quickly fades to a ringlet; leggy with a few spots

Smell: Chocolate, maple syrup and Bourbon dominate, with the pecan and vanilla tones subordinate

Taste: Powerful tones of chocolate, Bourbon and maple syrup appear, at the outset, bringing a very sweet profile that is enhanced, somewhat, by the pecan and vanilla; the finish is bold, sweet and warm

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation; warmth in the gullet

Overall: Great expression of flavors here but too sweet for my palate

4.42/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

650ml capped bottle, snifter glass. Dark cola brown body, nearly black, one finger offwhite head, fair retention, a slight bit of lacing that drops after a short while. Smell is sweet maple, nutty milk chocolate, cocoa, light roast, earth, whiskey, vanillin, marshmallow. Sweet with a lot of adjunct action. Flavour follows pretty closely to the aroma. Nice integration of all the adjuncts, a bit less of the vanilla and more of the cocoa. Mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy, good carbonation, cocoa and a bit of bitter roast on the backend.
