Light whiskey, wood and roast aromas. Roasty, thin porter with a slight edge of almost-tartness due to the whiskey, which also imparts some vanilla notes. Brown-copper in color with a bit of tan head.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bomber. Poured black with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma was whisky, roasted malt. Flavor was whisky, roasted malt, hints of vanilla, wood. A touch of sour fruit, which was not wholly unpleasant. Quite smooth overall.

SPDickerman (939) - Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours pitch black with a tiny, fizzy brown head. Smells a little like chocolate and a bit of vanilla but nothing is too pronounced. Taste has a bit of vanilla and something that is kinda like a sourness or a metallic character, almost like a lesser quality bourbon. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, BridgePort Raven Mad Imperial Porter finishes with that same sort of sour character. I wanted to like this one, but I just couldn’t.

Bricktop86 (558) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 7, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Pours black with a few fingers of thick tan head. Aroma of coffee, wood and vanilla. Taste is coffee, strong vanilla and oak, and some background hops. Creamy on the palate

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle. Poured black with a tan head that settled to a ring. Sweet malt aroma with some backing of barrel wood and hints of alcohol. The flavor found caramel, roast, and supported with a whisky backing. Medium body and a roasted aftertaste.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle. Black with a thin tan head. Chocolate and light bourbon and vanilla aroma. Tastes of chocolate sweet caramel notes of lightly sour bourbon and citrus with a dry subtle oak finish.

mrmartin (655) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Dark brown pour with big tan head. Watery even for a porter. Lots of roasty and nutty malts. Hint of vanilla and bourbon. Woody dry finish Gimmicky 3-d label decent porter.

jrob21 (2517) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bomber. A little thin for a nimpy anything but especially a porter. Aroma has some vanilla and some roastiness. Flavor is a little toasty malt as well. A touch of red fruit working on the backside of the palate.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Deep, dark pour with a thick tan head. Aroma has chocolate, cherry, bourbon and vanilla. Flavor has a lot of bitter chocolate and bourbon flavors up front. Tart cherry middle. Finish has lingering sour notes. Based on the rating of this beer I think i got a bad bottle.
