blomster (263) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2013
Tap @ Kickbacks during RBWG JAX. Dark brown, almost black pour, minimal head. Boozy (in a good way) aroma, with coconut, wood, dark chocolate and caramelized sugar. Taste of dark, sweet chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malts. Tastes great, full bodied, long smooth finish. Finishes of with a distinct bitterness. Awesome beer!

PorterPounder (5881) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof Brewing Company. Dark black pour, thin but persistent off-white head. Aroma of cotton candy, patented chocolate/coffee imperial stout aroma - yes - it has developed its own aroma after all these years unique unto itself. Flavor presents some dark unsweetened bittersweet chocolate, some espresso, hints of black licorice, a touch of fine cognac and some trailing notes of Fruity Pebbles cereal that is a tad disconcerting. Silky smooth thick mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma had big dark fruits, figs, raisin, caramel, bourbon and vanilla. The flavor has the bourbon and vanilla melding nicely with the big raisin, fig, dark fruits from the base beer. Some chocolate and roast show as well. I like the base, but this is better.

Bells Bourbon Barrel Ale wasn’t high on my list. It is 14.8% alcohol and it shows. The taste reminded me a lot like a fortified wine. It wasn’t something I would ever considering trying again. It has a strong smell of spirits and it tasted extremely strong. Personally, I didn’t enjoy it but that is because I am not a fan of Bourbon.

Aroma: chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malts, brown sugar, pleasant hints of bourbon, some sweetness, nice and rich. Appearance: jet black pour, opaque. Taste: rich chocolate and fudge, coffee and dark malts, some dark sugars and fruit, bourbon and hints of oak, alcohol is warming but not distracting - actually the booze has mellowed compared to the regular batch 9000. Palate: full body, fairly chewy and silky, low-medium carbonation. Overall: excellent beer - definitely more refined than the base.
