Pours a dark brown with a healthy light brown head with lingers quite a while. Aroma is booze, chocolate, vanilla.....taste is very sweet chocolate, alcohol shows up early, vanilla, slight coffee, then disappears in a hurry. All the flavor in the front but disappears so quickly....this could stand some mouthfeel as it’s a bit thin.

umich03jm (2118) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a small creamy, tan head that just sits and barely moves. Aroma is ultra sweet chocolate milk, vanilla, caramel, and a little cereal-like fruitiness. Tastes like cereal milk mostly. No bourbon at all. Tastes more like is was aged with vanilla beans. A little thin in the body. Not bad but a little boring and watery. That statement pretty much sums up all Atwater beers though.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with tan head which dissipates quickly. Aromas of chocolate which is the primary flavor of the beer. Faint bourbon taste with no noticeable finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JFGrind (1857) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Strong malty aroma, dark brown full bodied with tan lingering head. Alcohol twang evident as well as an underlying bourbon flavor in this Baltic Porter. Moderate bitterness rounds out this beer.

Pours dark brown with little to no head. Grainy aroma and flavor. Not much in the way of bourbon flavor. Not great.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours dark brown, looking mahogany thru direct light, and a frothy tan head. Nose is cacao, munich malt, hops. Tastes choc and munich malty, somewhat sweet and lactosy, with finishing notes of cacao and ovaltine.

Jasond612 (281) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
12/23/13. $3.29 bottle from CBO. I drank this after drinking a bourbon county coffee which is unfair to this beer. However... I can say this was my first disappoint in a bourbon barrel beer. I taste & smell no bourbon characteristics. Sorry boys... FAIL!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mittenator (1380) - Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Near black with a tan head. Sweet bourbon, milk chocolate and strong booze aromas. Oddly boozy with not much flavor. Another miss from atwater for me.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized tan head. Aromas of chocolate, some wood, and a trace of vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, and a trace of bourbon. Bourbon/barrel aging on the softer side.

koleminer20 (693) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2013
12 oz bottle. Part of a tasting 11/24/2013 at Fraser’s Pub in Ann Arbor. The pour is dark, but not thick at all. It’s pretty translucent, and not a good start. The aroma is heavy in chocolate and fruity notes There are a plethora of fruit notes that come through, but I think the dominant one would be raisins. The flavor is a little similar. This wasn’t ’blow-you-away’ on any front, but it was pretty solid. Some coffee, caramel, and a little chocolate coming through. Not bad, but definitely not what I was expecting
