Pours pitch black. Chocolatey and roasty aroma. Palate is big roast with none of the bitterness. Oak, and bourbon come in as well as a touch of soy sauce but it all works. A fabulous beer!!

Black pour with a tan head. Full aroma, lots of chocolate, roast malts, caramel, just a hint of bourbon. The flavor is nicely rounded, just enough sweetness, not too bitter, the bourbon is part of the complexity and doesn’t walk all over the other flavors. Well blended chocolate, coffee, dark caramel flavors form the base.

P: Pours a super dark body with ruby hues and a massive cavernous cap of cappuccino head. Thick bubbly lacing with nice retention. S: Vivid bourbon aroma swells from the glass and encompasses a base of roasted cocoa, vanilla, toffee, faint caramel and chocolate chip muffins. T/M: Sweet dark fruits, toffee and milk chocolate strike first then disappear to bitter vanilla biscotti coffee with a follow up of cocoa and bourbon. Taste of salty caramel, slightly smoked wood chips and cinnamon in the finish. Crisp moderate body with a semi dry finish. O: Bourbon barreling is exhibited well in this robust porter. Complex flavors that change throughout the session. Easy drinking for the Borbon flavoring and a nice crisp feel. A great porter for sure. Cheers!

First porter I’ve had, being new to beer. I absolutely love the full flavors it holds. Also it’s a local beer!!

22 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown with a velvety head of beige foam. The aroma is roasty and boozy. Vanilla comes through strong in this one.

Thanks, Jason! This one has lots of bourbon character. Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla with a very faint chocolate porter note. Taste is malty with a bourbon overtone. This is great as an after dinner brew. The vanilla notes really shines. The body is also much more dense and better than the original people’s porter.

I'm not a porter person, but this is interesting. I generally don't care for barrel aging either. This beer, however, isn't too bad. A lot of flavor that isn't that of bourbon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Much bourbon aroma with this porter. The taste not living up to this however, as burnt parts and not liking the execution. Dark brown with a large beige head. Doug’s bottle from recent Carolinas trip.

Pours dark brownish red with a foamy khaki head. Oak and vanilla up front on the nose, lots of sweet dark fruit too, toffee, milk chocolate and toasted malt. Taste is suuuuuper oaky, almost no bourbon notes, lots of caramel, hint, light dark cherry notes, toffee, milk chocolate, and slightly leathery with a nice vanilla finish. Not bad, but not nearly as good or with as much bourbon flavor as previous batches. A little too sweet as well.

650 ml. Opaque chocolate color with a lasting quarter inch of cream. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, charred oak and a dab of whiskey. Flavor is vanilla and chocolate with whiskey, blackberry and raisin. Finish is a nice bittersweet blend of roasted peanut, toasted oak, vanilla and char. Medium-heavy body is to the sweet side, but the lightly astringent barrel and dark malt finish provides a nice balance. Mostly smooth; only complaint is just a wee bit much carbonation for my tastes.
