so much better barrel aged versus the standard version, but still not very exciting.

22 oz bottle, thanks to jtclockwork. Dark brown pour with no meaningful head. A fair bit of vanilla in the nose. Hugely astringent, almost sour; oaky, a bit tannic. Ash, chalk, almost undrinkably harsh. In fact ... yeah, ended up in the drain after choking through 4 ounces. Not crazy about this one.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 22 ounce bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours a thin-like consistency with brownish black body and a finger of light tan head. Nice webby/spotty lacing. Aromas of sweet bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla, light oak. Tasting notes of coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit including berries, bitter roast, some oak, hardly any bourbon. Some burnt notes on the backend and aftertaste. Medium-thin body with a dry and slightly warm finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. The bourbon didn’t seem to pull through on the taste. Turns into a mess as it warms plus a hotter finish.

Wow - this is a great tasting porter! Nice chocolate, but not that super-sweet chocolatey, aroma. Lovely flavor, nice feeling...at first. As I imbibe a few more mouthfuls, flavor turns a bit toward the overly sour side.

Pours very thin lookin as I expected from a >6% ABV porter. Palate is also thin but I’m impressed by the bourbon and vanilla flavors that come through here! Probably a my second favorite porter behind Alewerks bourbon porter (which is my fav porter by a large margin). This is a good, easy drinking beer with flavor but it leaves me longing for a real thick and loucious bourbon imp stout. Still yet to find a reason to ever go for porters but this does help the case a little.

Bomber on 2/21/14. Pours dark not-quite-black with a thick off white head. Aroma is amazing. Bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is slightly sour, fruity upfront followed by nice chocolate, caramel, vanilla that stays for a bit then ends with some burnt notes. Body is a little thin, dry. Overall a great beer.

Bottle pours brownish black. Aroma is light oaky bourbon with coffee roast. Taste is smooth sweet roast and booze, not too intense, good for the price ~ 7$ a bomber

Bottle. Black pour with a tall, creamy tan head. Label shows ABV as 5.8%. Aroma is bourbon notes, vanilla, roasted malt, dark chocolate and oak. Taste is strong roasted malt and vanilla, light toasted coconut, bourbon notes, oak, dark chocolate and burnt caramel. Body is medium with a light, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel notes, softer oak and hints of dark fruit.

Advocate_Ames (391) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours very dark with a moderate, defined, and sticky foam head. The aroma is bourbon driven, oak, vanilla, dark roasted and sweet malts, butter toffee, molasses, with an earthy yet floral character. In tasting I picked on roasted sweet malts, moderate sweet bourbon, bitterness, mild bitter chocolate, vanilla, and a mild sugar sweetener. The finish had a nice dryness, with a malty, soft booze, and bitter sweet taste. Overall this was a nicely done beverage with a bitter kick and worth a glass.
