Appearance is pitch black with tan velvety head, nice lacing, decent head retention. Nose starts with some dark berries, cherries, and chocolate. Notes of vanilla and mellow bourbon come to the surface at the end. The taste is smooth and fruity up front which is integrated well with notes of dark chocolate. Vanilla rounds it out and makes for a nice smooth and well balanced flavor. Mouthfeel is bit on the light side with mellow carbonation. Overall, a well balanced and tasty brew.

12oz bottle received as an extra from maximum12, one of the best traders and all around awesome BAs.

Bottled 11/2012; poured into snifter. Opaque, black elixir, thin tan rim, scattered lacing.

Wonderful aroma of vanilla, bourbon, light burnt malt.

There's a lot mixed in here: the malt and hops duel over the nice bourbon backing, with a hop, bitterness balanced by the vanilla finish.

Medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth bittered backing.

Really well constructed brew. Can't believe this would be any better fresh.

12oz bottle from Todd. Thanks!

A: Dark mahogany pour with a very thin ring of light mocha colored head. A decent amount of legs on this one.

N: A very intense espresso rises up from the nose. There's some vanilla, and caramel, but it's more roasted coffee. Chocolate underpins this, and there's some blackberry and cherry, but it's not a rich bouquet of smells.

T: Sweet and roasty with a slight bitterness. There's a slight oaken sourness (not infected, just that kind of 'sharpness'). Bourbon runs through this, but it's missing an extra dimension.

M: On the lighter side given how big it is. Still a medium bodied beer, but I expect a more burly malt character to slosh around on the tongue.

O: A solid beer, and I'm glad to have tried it. Works well as a day to day drinker, but I'd appreciate more dimension throughout because it seems more like a porter and a half than an imperial porter.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black without much of a head. A few solitary islands on the surface. Thin collar.

Smell - Bourbony as hell. Lots of the liquor. Chocolate and some fudginess.

Taste - Still really bourbony. Raw bourbon flavor. Fudgy chocolate. Roasty. Hot finish.

Mouthfeel - Not really thick, as I'd expect from a porter. The slightest bit too thin for the barrel.

Overall - Tasty, but tons of bourbon. Bourbon is the best part, but the beer has just enough to stand up to the barrel.

Pours jet black with a small beige head receding to a wisp. Great lacing all down the glass.

Sweet sweet vanilla on the nose. Big barrel presence. Vanilla and bourbon with chocolate, marshmellow and good roasty malts. Vanilla is definitely stronger than the light detectable bourbon as far as the barrel though especially as it warms.

Huge flavor to match then surpass the nose. Rich milk chocolate up front. Loads of vanilla again. This is a total vanilla bomb although the roasted malts and cocoa like bitterness restrain it was being sweet. There is noticable bourbon, but it's very well integrated and doesn't overpower the more nuanced flavors. Incredibly balanced and delicious.

Medium to full bodied mouthfeel. Smooth rich and creamy. Low but present carbonation. A light booze presence, but hardly detectable and well blended.

This is hands down one of the best beers I've had in a long time. I wish I would've traded for a 4 pack of this instead of Fifteen. So good.
