Nero55 (635) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Draft. Black with small tan head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, vanilla, and a hint of chocolate. Medium body with chocolate notes, some alcohol warmth in the middle, and roasted coffee finish.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Draft. Deep brown body with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and cream, chocolate, vanilla and a hint of bourbon. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nice bourbon, wood flavors because they aren’t overpowering. The malts are clean, but this porter was way too sweet for my taste.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Taster at the brewpub. Dark brown / black color, mostly clear. No head or lace. Very light warmth, light spice, some wood. Light toastiness, some dark chocolate. Bigger body. Good light chewiness. Lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Light dark fruit. Moderate bitter, mild sweet, very light alcohol bitein the finish. Solid barrel aged imperial porter.

Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with a small frothy tan head that mostly diminished with little lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, vanilla and bourbon wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

AndyW68 (1025) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Not bad, but not for me. Might try again since I tasted this after a Founders KBS. That is really not fair. Dark brown with a red tint. Tries to be a stout. To sweet and musty. Not for me.

tmongoose (1188) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 23, 2013
on draft. poured dark brown with cocoa colored head that disappeard quickly leaving a nice lacing on the glass. the aroma of roasted malts and chocolate were predominate. the flavor changed as it got warmed started out roasted malt and chocolate and then as it warm you got a touch a vanilla and some oak from the barrels. mild to medium body and a mild taste with little bitterness. quite smooth and delicious.

b3shine (5138) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; cola with foamy beige head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells and tastes bitter with some booziness. Thin on the finish. Okay, but I’m underwhelmed.

3.9
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Draft @ CB. Dark brown almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, coconut and light roasted malt. Flavor is rich cocoa, a great oak/vanilla/coconut/bourbon barrel character and a light roasted bitterness. Fullish body with soft carbonation. This is a really nice porter, they extracted so much barrel goodness into this.

chanfoli (15) - Kentucky, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Draught at the taproom, served in half-pint glass. Medium black pour. Tan head with good longevity. Medium body. Aroma and taste matched one another: Roasted malt, chocolate, coconut and vanilla (bourbony). Good stuff.

alecc130 (1) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 20, 2012 does not count
A complex beer that is at once heavy but balanced, potent but smooth, and completely unforgettable.
