Deep, dark brown body; dense, creamy, light tan head. Roasted grain scent; some coffee elements. Rich chocolate flavor enhanced with notes of coffee; a bit sweet, a bit bitter; very slight presence of alcohol. Smooth and creamy texture on the palate; deep sweetness offset with charred grain dryness.

A rich and complex beer, lots of layers of flavor.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a speiglau BA glass.

Look is completely opaque black with zero highlights and a thin tan head.

Arom is rich roasted chocolate with a hint of bourbon.

With the taste you get each of the individual flavors, chocolate, coffee and bourbon.

Delicious.

I usually have a few bottles of these in the cellar, not only are Wisconsin people some of the friendliest, but Wisconsin traders are some of the most generous. Suck it fibs.

Pours a black color, you've seen darker SRMs, but this is almost equal parts porter so it makes sense its not the deepest darkest of blacks. Light brown head 1/4". Aroma is mild bourbon, mild coffee. Not problematic mild, fitting actually, this is an 8% porter. Its got a good roasted base, not excessive bitterness or hopped up beyond where it should be. Mild vanilla, everything is mild and appropriate. I'd way rather pay $5 for a bottle of this instead of $20-25 for Eclipse.

Really smooth stuff, the oats and around 100 days in barrel make this a nice chill excursion with even a little bit of tobacco note creeping in towards the end of the bottle. We need more barrel aged bangers that are cheap and not double digit alcohol, nor used motor oil sludge. I approve. Would bang over and over.

I have wanted this beer for five-plus years. When I had a chance to get this beer I bought it. The beer is 53 degrees and served in a tulip glass. A hard pour on the beer produced a one finger medium tan head. The head has little retention and fizzled. The beer is SRM 37 nearly black. The clarity is opaque. The beer does present with a few carbonation bubbles on the sides of the glass. The head did not produce lacing on the glass.

Rich dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, citrus, wood, vanilla, grain, burnt sugar, molasses, bourbon, yeast, earthy, caramel, toasted malt, roasted malt, and char for the aromas.

Dark chocolate, rich roasted coffee, vanilla, grains, oatmeal, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, char, roasted malt, toasted malt, yeasty, bready, and wood for the flavors.
The mouthfeel of the beer is creamy and rich.
The body of the beer is medium-plus, medium carbonation, and the finish is full.
This beer is outrageous. The porter come through perfectly yet subtly full body. The harmony and the balance of the beer are nearly perfect.

Deep black pour, one finger of light brown head. Retention and lacing are good for the style. Aroma is a nice combination of bourbon, oak, dark roast coffee. Notes of roast, caramel, and vanilla. On taste, again, a blend of bourbon, oak, chocolate, coffee. Slight vanilla and roast on the after taste. Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, slight bitter, dry finish. A good to very good bourbon barrel coffee stout.
