4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich thick black color with a finger of deep mocha foam. The nose is sweet coconut cream, dark spicy chocolate, roasted almonds and a touch of bourbon soaked tootsie rolls. The palate follows the nose with a great creamy mouthfeel and sweet balanced flavors that continue to unfold as you sip the beer to completion and reach for a bottle of bourbon ! Tasty.

Big thanks to Dosbeerigos for sharing this. Nice bourbon chocolate flavor here. Not overly malty or hot, but a very nice mellow drinking bourbon beer.

Big blackish pour with a dark chocolatey colored head. Wow this one delivers some superb barrel and chocolate notes, a very wispy hint of bitterness is hiding. I know porters tend to be on the thin side and the flavors of this sure made up for any lack of body.

750 ML bottle
Dark brown color, light tan head. Good one finger head. Good retention and body to head. Some spotty lacing.
Nose is bourbon, dark fruits, caramel, vanilla, and oak. Lots of caramel.
Taste is more about the caramel, some dark fruits and malt to go with it.
Feel is slightly light for what CCB can do. Medium carbonation and light bodied. Thought more a caramel bomb. Prefered the base version much more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Dixonian for sharing this bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate with some dark fruit and roasted malt. The aroma is that of a classic Baltic porter. The flavor is similar, with some great additions. I get a lot of oak and grass notes up front, as well as some whiskey, maple, chocolate and roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

Aroma is sweet and oaky chocolate. Pours brown with a light white head. Taste is super sweet with confectioners chocolate, slight toffee and a subtle roast. Very sweet, I was hoping for more roast.

Bottle at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Sweet and quite bitter. MAlty aromas of toffee with hints of grain. Also mellow hoppy aromas of pine. Hints of residual sugars, prusen and tiny hints of band aid.
