looks like it should, big thick mouthfeel, oaty, tastes like it may have spent some time in a bourbon barrlel, though the bourbon flavor is very mild and could go unnoticed, oaky vanilla flavors, red wine flavors, an interesting porter

Stopped in after the Xmas Eve^3 at tronraner’s. Clear dark brown pour with reddish chestnut highlights and wispy tan head. Roasty nose with a hint of coffee. Grainy coffee flavor and toasted with some form of hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a dark black color with a thin tan head. The aroma was chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor was coffee, and roasted malt, with a bit of a bitter finish. This was just an average porter. The body was a little thin, but the flavor was ok.
