Bold smooth taste. One of the best barrel aged porters ever!

Lots of bourbon barrel and alcohol right up front, definite winter warmer material, not as smooth as Boulevard Barrel aged quad tried in same session. Pours near black, minimal head, aroma of alcohol and peat. Taste is sharp and biting right from the get go, a true sipper....

Bottle received in a recent trade as an extra.

This one pours a "light" black, with a small head, and just a small amount of lacing.

This smells like cheap harsh bourbon, chocolate syrup, and booze.

This was not done with a deft hand at all. The base beer is so thin, and watery, so the bourbon just completely dominates here, and it's a kind of cheap bourbon flavor, which is hard to get thru. There's a bit of chocolate sweetness, but there's just honestly not a whole lot to this beer.

This is pretty thin bodied, with a lower level of carbonation.

Just a really bad effort in every major category you can rate a beer in. A categorical fail here.
