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.

nearbeer (4470) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2013
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.

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.
