2013 Bottle, thanks Gerrit and Drew for the share: Pitch black with tan frothy head. The aroma has notes of licorice, bourbon, roast, smoke, rye bread and herbal hop esters. The taste is heavy with initial dark fruit and anise along with an interesting grapey acidic counterpoint. Earthy, charred, coffee and a bit bready as well. The mouth feel is aggressive and biting with an ashy finish. This is very nice.

Jool (196) - - DEC 29, 2013
Bouteille 500mL (embouteillée 2013). Noire opaque, avec mousse légère. Nez peu expressif, vanille et traces de café. Bouche soyeuse: vanille, café, un côté épicé qui rappelle la canelle mais sans en avoir le côté piquant, un côté mielleux assez dominant, bourbon. Le tout est incroyablement équilibré et doux. Rien n’accroche et on ne goûte pas l’alcool. Encore une réussite!

rxeight (1758) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2013
2013 bottle thanks to Dany. Very dark pour. Slight tan head. Aroma oddly enough has a slight moacatel or white wine smell. Or possibly some wild yeast. Almost like it is infected by some of the farmhouse yeast but in a good way. Taste has a very slight very mellow bourbon. Lots of sweetness probably from the honey. Some roast an coffee. Everything is very mellow and balanced. Tasty stuff.

Poured black with minimal tan head. On the nose bourbon and chocolate. On the tongue huge hints of bourbon and dark toasty malts. This is delicious!!!!!

Koelschtrinker (12039) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 18, 2013
Dunkel malziger, etwas zu süßer Antrunk. Honignoten, passend alkoholisch, dann Noten von Bourbon, im Mittelteil kurzzeitig milder werdend. Kaffee hinter der Süße, intensiv, auch im Abgang noch zu süß. 10/12/8/11/12/11

ThirstyBird (1995) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2013
Thanks to Jason for this! Pours near pitch black/brown with a brown head. The smell is coffee, bourbon, dark malt, licorice. The taste is bourbon, coffee, licorice, some honey at the end with a touch of alcohol. Full bodied and elegantly carbonated. Amazing stuff.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2013
label says 10-2013. Pours a bit thin with some smaller bubbles. Nice toasty bright flavor and aroma, whiskey compliments excellent, very easy to drink, not too hot, bit thinner with some coarse fine carbonation, kind of tangy which is neat.

mathieuc (1899) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 Pours a really dark brown with a thin beige head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of bourbon, caramel and coffee. Taste is sweet but backed by some roastiness. Flavors of honey and coffee. Bourbon is more restrained than I thought it would be. Some spicy freshness. Carbonation is low, mouthfeel full. Alcohol is quite apparent but not disturbing. Great!

2012 bottle from Tommy, thanks man! Mind blowing aroma of, coffee, vanilla, oak and something else I can’t quite place. Taste is a bit of cinnamon up front, thin mouthfeel, some bourbon oak notes, a bit of extra sweetness, nice bitter sweet aftertaste. A fantastic porter for a cold winter day.
