3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2010 Bottle from HopHead22. Pours a black color with a thin head. Nose of whisky and roasted malts... Smells over powering. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, oak notes and whisky/bourbon. The alcohol is noticable but not as powerfull as the nose. Medium body for a strong porter. Overall: Wish I would of let this sit for two more years to but still enjoyable.

Wow. At the 2012 Barrel Aged Beer Event. My other co-favorite of the day. Big vanilla taste and spirits from sip one to the end. Lots of chocolate notes and just very smooth on the tongue. Glad to finally get a taste of this and the rye whiskey barrel version.
