pours dark brown with a medium tan head. aroma has notable bourbon but not boozy at all...some woody smoke and caramel. flavor has vanilla and lots of bourbon but again...not boozy...mild roast and woody notes. mouthfeel is light and creamy with a bourbon/woody/earthy finish. somewhat odd but interesting...lots of elements that ever so slightly clash but not so aggressively as to be offputting.

On tap at the Iron Hill Barrel event in Maple Shade. Aroma is dark coffee, slight cocoa and a strong vanilla presence. Pours black with a large beige head. Tastes big and roasty with plenty of chocolate, cherry and malts. Has a sweet lingering roast that is perfect. Strong. Brought home a growler.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Draft at 2012 Barrels Bugs & Bourbon event. Poured a thinner looking dark brown center with lighter orange/brown edges and a foamy small beige head. Aroma is great with chocolate pudding skins, bourbon, vanilla, toast. Thinner body with average to stronger carbonation with a medium dose of heat. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma with strong alcohol notes at first, followed by chocolate and bourbon. Okay but flavor doesn’t hold up to the aroma.

nickd717 (3403) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Draft. Dark brown in color with a small tan head. Bourbon dominates the aroma, with vanilla, oak, roast, and chocolate behind it. The flavor is also extremely bourbony. Oak and vanilla are secondary, and after that chocolatey and roasty porter flavors. Medium-bodied and boozy despite the ABV, or maybe that’s just the bourbon flavor confusing me. Sorry guys, there’s just too much bourbon in this one. I’d like to see the base beer shine through more. Good flavors in it still though.

Goodgrief (1744) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Media. Surprisingly low abv in a bourbon beer, but it did on fact taste like it. Predominantly bourbon flavored, but light in the mouth...a tad thin.not a fan.

A deep dark brown porter with a thick brown head. In aroma, a pleasant subdued bourbon barrel, light coffee and fusel. In mouth, a smooth tobacco like chocolate, with wood extract, vanilla, some astringence, a tad harsh. On tap at Lancaster location, April 8th, 2011.
