On tap at the brewery. Black appearance with a tan ring of foam. Aroma of oak, whiskey, light vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Similar flavor, dark, malty, sweet, syrupy and thin. Kind of hard to drink.

Tap at Bonfire. Dark pour. No lacing. Sweet vanilla aroma. Sweet, caramel and dark malts, hints of oak without much of a whiskey character. It's ok.

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma slight hints of vanilla and oak. Pours very dark brown with a thin, but retentive, light brown head and very little lacing. Starts with roasted malt flavors with a bit of chocolate and vanilla. Finishes smooth with some vanilla, oak and bourbon coming through before more roasted malt covers the palate. Pretty good, but I was hoping for more whiskey flavor and the body is light-ish for a whiskey barrel porter.

Bottle, 22oz. Itís an unclear one, brown in color and with a small, beige head. The aroma has a little sourness, not of the malty side, more lemony, with roasted malts, coffee and a boozy hint. Some oak hints. Itís full-bodied and with a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, coffee notes, chocolate, oak and something lemony in the flavor. Lasting finish with some alcohol notes and a more distinct whiskey touch than initially. Quite nice this one, although not a winner in my book. 141024
