Bottle, aged from September 2011 bottling. Aroma of caramel, toffee, sweet milk chocolate. Appears dark brown, flat, minor foam. Tastes a lot like coffee, lingering coffee. Somewhat fizzy texture. Overall, nice but simple.

Pours cola brown with a beige head. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, and bourbon. Vanilla, chocolate, toffee flavor with roasted malt. Easy drinker. Nice beer.

blackflag321 (547) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle pour to shaker. I was intrigued by this offering with a lower ABV and price than associated with bourbon barrel aged beers. I bought a single bottle but will buy more next trip to the store. It does not have whiskey or oak tones but is still a nice, smooth porter that I enjoyed.

Draft pour. Dark brown with a beige head. Taste is sweet and a little toasty with some notes of vanilla and coconut. Medium to full body and soft carbonation.

12 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is malts, coffee, chocolate and a little oak.

chucklemation (648) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pours a dark mahogany, no head. Aroma is oak and smoke, with some caramel. Reminds me almost of a campfire. Flavor is harsher when cold, but as it warms up there is very little flavor. There’s a little bit of bourbon and lots of caramel, but very little of either the more you drink it. The body is thinner than you’d expect. Not very good.

Underdogs88 (223) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Licorice, sweet, oak aroma. Appearance is a reddish, dark brown with a tan head with poor retention. Flavor is a sweet chocolate with low hops. The char of the barrel is present on the end. Roast flavor is smooth. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's an ok beer. Lacks malt complexity though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

katrinaez (241) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Lacking in the bourbon flavor. A little too Light ConSidering the beer is slightly needing more flavor of its own. Would like to try it in the bottle ad we had on tap.

AirForceHops (3960) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle thanks going to fishmich on this one. Pitch black, thin lasting tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with some light vanilla.

The flavor is a decent Porter base but not much in the way of bourbon or oak. Deep chocolate notes, light traces of earthy malts, prunes, various dark fruits light caramel. Thinner body, with a chocolate sweet finish.
