Bottle thanks to Guyute_Pig: Poured a dark rich brown black with light brown head. Aroma was vanilla and booze. Taste was loads of rich roasted malt, boozy bourbon edge, and vanilla.

Poured deep brown, nearly black. Lacy head. Soft nose belays the wonderful boozy element in the mouth.

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
