Plovmand (6326) - Helsinge, - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours black with a medium beige head. The aroma is loaded with sweet bourbon and sweet roasted malt. Ligher notes of chocolate and tobacco. The flavour is mainly sweet bourbon with notes of vanilla, oak and sweet ripe fruit. Light chocolate and sweet caramel. Quite boozy overall and not as thick mouthfeel as expected for the abv.

nsquishee (595) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Aroma of bourbon barrel, chocolate, and molasses. Similar flavors which are dominated by bourbon. Tastes super smooth and silky with a boozy, carbonated finish. Very nice beer.

12 oz bottle from 2011 red wax. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma and flavor had big bourbon notes, chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, wood, boozy at times, big certainly, definitely worth trying.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a dark amber with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong bourbon, wood, roast, oak. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roasted malt, dark chocolate, bourbon, wood, and nice roast finish. Very good.

Barnoloid (141) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2014
This is a very bourbon forward barrel aged porter. The booziness is apparent from the nose right from the get go. Definitely get a lot of toffee, caramel and chocolate here. At 12% this packs a punch, but it goes down easier than the ABV would have you imagine. A sipper with complexity and a smooth mouthfeel.

Dr_MedievAle (159) - Alabama, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Aroma: chocolate and brown sugar with some raisin. Appearance: murky brown with fizzy beige head. Thick but quickly disappearing lacing. Taste: some sweet raisin that develops into plum. Slightly burning bourbon. Taste reminiscent of founders backwood bastard. Excellent alcohol masking. Palate: light body with lively carb. Dry and soft mouthfeel--like a red wine.

Dfonorow (1363) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pour is deep brown/red with a small tan coffee colored head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, dark caramel, vanilla, and booze. Flavor is medium bitterness and a touch of sweetness - caramel, chocolate, alcohol. Coffee on the finish. Reminds me of BCBS as it takes almost all of its flavor from characteristics of the barrel aging and the base beer is very hidden.
