Bottle. Pours a near clear dark brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has roasted malts and creamy dark grains with a bourbon backing. Flavor is smooth with roasted malts and dark grains and just a touch of chocolate and bourbon.

22 oz. bottle shared by Willrunforbeer, huge thanks on this one! We believe this is a 2013 vintage. Thicker tan head sitting on the dark brown liquid. Wow! The aroma is a nice level of bourbon mixed with chocolate malt. The flavor has what I would say is Jack Daniels. Mild Jack but Jack Daniels never-the-less. Secondary notes of tobacco leaves and pumpernickel bread. Finishes real clean for a BBA brew, very light earthiness after the sip. Nice stuff.

Bomber. This is likely from 2013. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Amazing chocolate, vanilla, bourbon aroma. Flavor follows, smooth dark chocolate, raisin, vanilla, bourbon, oak. Slight astringency in the finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a huge creamy-foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was strong bourbon, cocoa, tangy, malty, vanilla and a bit of chocolate syrup. The flavor was bourbon, sweet toasty malts, honey, vanilla, more bourbon and an odd off presence underneath. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting but I was a bit disappointed.

Bottle from my buddy in Asheville. Poured into small snifters and shared with Dani and Brian at the Pig. Pours a deep amber brown with very little head. Mild ringing. Aroma is graham cracker, brown sugar, vanilla, cookie dough, chocolate chips, and bread. The taste was chocolate chip cookie dough, vanilla, brown sugar, toffee, slight barrel, and chocolate. Finish is flavorful and fairly light. Medium to light in body. I like a little more full body on this style but that’s my only complaint. Very nice flavor profiles.

weihenweizen (2196) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Black with dark brown highlights and big light brown head. Aroma is big vanilla, medium body, medium carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, some caramel, and hints of oak. Lots of flavor, nice vanilla aroma, nice amount of barrel for me, one of my favorite porters.

chinchill (2999) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2014
22oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pours dark brown and sits near black and opaque in the glass. Large frothy head is semi-durable and leaves a fairly full coat of lacing on the glass. Appealing aroma features BBL, dark roasted grains, and dark fruits. Flavor: BBL and fainter dark bread and a hint of vanilla. Too much bourbon flavor in the finish and aftertaste, but then others will find this attractive no doubt. Drinks big despite the modest 5.8% ABV.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a deep brown with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is nice barrel notes, vanilla and chocolate over oak, hint of musty funk. Taste is less of the odd, more of a nice porter with good barrel qualities. Thin mouth, hint of soy, light bitterness. Pretty solid.
