Sarlacc83 (1953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle from belair50. Thanks! A: Mahogany body with a creme head. Lacing. N: Bourbon, caramel, vanilla, toast, brown sugar, some char, butterscotch, raisin and prune. Toffee. T: Goodly sweet. A touch bitter. M: Oily medium mouthfeel, some alcohol, soft prickly carbonation. O:A big sweet bourbon assault on the gates. The initial whiff is the best and then this settles down to something good but not earth shattering.

Boutip (5950) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a nice thick dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla notes is quite dominant with some black chocolate notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by bourbon notes with some vanilla notes and light oak flavors. Roasted malt notes is light with some black chocolate notes and light residual sugar notes also perceptible. Body is full enough with good carbonation and some light warming alcohol notes. Very enjoyable even though base beer is a bit hard to distinguish through all the bourbon notes.

Bottle. Pour is darker brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor of cocoa powder, light roast, oak chips, peat, and molasses. Finish is not as sweet as the body, somewhat boozy.

Shared with Paul in a night of debauchery and palate assaulting. Black, opaque body with a viscous, oily, beige collar. Rich and delectable aroma. Chocolates, roast, oak, bourbon. So dark and full. Cigar City strikes yet again.
