3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to DocJ007 for sharing this one with a whole bunch of us. Drank right after the non BA version.
A - Pours deep dark brown with a small half finger tall khaki colored head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving light strings of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of dark roasted malt, dulled vanilla and chocolatey sweetness, light smokiness and only the faintest hint of bourbon. Right away I could tell this one wasn’t right, I even re-read the description to make sure I read it right the first time. It has a really wired fruitiness and very little bourbon notes.
T - Taste is just like the nose. It starts off with the dark roasted malt and light sweetness and then things take a turn for the worse. There is a weird mix of smoke and light fruitiness that clashes with all of the other flavors. On top of that the bourbon is almost non existent, which is really eye raising. Finish is rather harsh with a bit of booze burn, combined with the thin feel it doesn’t linger on the palate for very long.
M - Medium body with moderately low carbonation. The weird fruitiness combined with the thin, roasty feel is not helping things at all.
O - There was more than half the bottle left at the end of the night and nobody was rushing over to finish it. A bourbon barrel porter with no bourbon presence and a light fruitiness? I don’t want to say this bottle was infected but it definitely wasn’t right.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Celebrating All Hallows Eve 2013 with a bottle via hopscotch: Pours a very deep muddy brown with a quickly fading head and basically no lace, some oily legs. The aroma has striking bourbon barrel (booze, vanilla, oak, char), lovely dark fruits and inviting earthy overtones. In the tradition of CCB this displays lots of tobacco and leather notes which makes me happy. The taste is still a tad hot and raw but I see this going great places with aging as long as no "wildness" starts to occur... but I digress for this is drinking pretty damn good right now. Everything on the nose is found on the palate as well. The mouth feel is soft and oily but not heavy, a tad tannic which does lessen the enjoyment... I do wonder what the ABV is on this.... methinks 9+ at least. I dig this now and would love the see what a year or so would do for it.
