22oz bottle. Rating #138. Opened up with quite a pop and it poured with a lot of foam, unfortunately it was infected and not terribly good.There was once a very good beer there, but it wasn’t happening today. (2798)

From a bottle (thanks, daknole). Pours a lovely dark brown with a filmy head and light lacing. Awesome sweet chocolate nose with a boozy note. Light dark malt, licorice and bourbon taste with a sweet candy background. Lighter body than I expected, but not too light.

bomber poured dark brown with mocha colored head...a small bit of a gusher but saved it all. good strong aroma of bourbon first off and get some chocolate and roasted malts. the flavor on the other hand is quite strong with bourbon medium bodied and strong alcohol burn on the end..most of everything is masked under the bourbon unless you know what you are looking for...do get some chocolate and malt and coffee as well...but mostly masked by bourbon.. did i say bourbon..i believe i said bourbon.

Decided to open after increasing talk that the first batch was infected. Happy to report a clean bill of health on my bottle. Lively carbonation, thin body. Tons of vanilla and bourbon. Strong oak and earth. Finish is a little weak. Overall, recommended if you’re a bourbon fan more than a porter fan. I’m happy to have a glass of it next to me on what has turned into a rainy and windy weekend.

Jow (2005) - New York, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle shared at AZ crew tasting. pours dark brown, nose is mostly bourbon. tastes of bourbon, rootbeer, earth, toffee, and maybe some bubblegum. kinda overpowering on bourbon and a touch light. nice enough but just misses

arkurzynski (1459) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle from JCB - thanks! Deep brown pour with rocky, deep tan head. Monster lacing. Nice bourbon nose with coconut, oak, and some mild cocoa powder. Porter flavor is pretty overwhelmed with mostly bourbon/coconut and some bakers chocolate and tart, acidic dark fruit. Pretty thin and somewhat watery. Acidity is slightly detracting. Some beers just shouldn’t be barrel-aged.

Has a decent presence from the barrel with flavors of vanilla, caramel, and burnt sugar. However, with a thin body with a slight tart / sour flavor. Not bad, but certainly not the best barrel aged beer I’ve ever had.
