On tap at North Whales. Nice dark body with creamy head. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla milk shake. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla with light bourbon undertones working in there. So smooth with the alcohol creeping in later.

GABF 2007: Listed as Media, PA location. Poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was decent with some barrel, vanilla and lightly sweet roasted malt. the bourbon in the flavor ran from front to back but didn’t overpower. Vanilla, sweet and malty.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2007
foamy medium tan head, body is blackish chestnut and ruby scarlet at edges. after the nitrogen cascades, the head gets creamy and pocked with bubbles. first aroma is vanilla bean, chocolate malt like a black and white shake! some bourbon in the backgrund too. texture is very smooth and silky, roasted chocolate malt and mild/smooth bourbon. the nitrogen keeps it real mellow. vanilla is in there, and combined with the bourbon it plays up a coconut-like flavor. bourbon gets a bit tiresome after a while but there’s never any heat at abv of 4.8%. lacing is a thin film of tan cream all the way up the wall of the glass.

Nitro Draft @ IH West Chester, 7/6/07. Poured deep brown, with s small tan head. Aroma of wood, bourbon, caramel and vanilla. Chocolate malt flavor, with toffee, oak, smoke, and bourbon, with some peat in the finish. Smooth and tasty.

Bottle. Sampled @ BCTC 2007 at RateBeer tent. Pitch black -brown coloring. Sharp, fudgy-maltiness (if that’s an adjective) that catches my nose and attention from the beginning. Flavoring punctuated by whiskey highlights and a wooden residual, like licking the cork on a JD bottle. For those that love Jack and beer, this is a smooth and even combination, neither side overpowering the other. Not for me - I winced at every sip thinking someone spiked my good ole’ porter.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Nitro @ West Chester. Dark brown with a medium tan-ish head. Nice roasty malt aroma with some wood, bourbon, vanilla, and a slight nutty hint. Flavor is a subdued, malty mix of oak, bourbon, vanilla, and just enough malty sweetness. Not over the top, but a tad better than the standard Pig Iron Porter. Tasty, with a nice bourbony tongue sting that lingers a bit.

Nitro, Pours dark with a small compact tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, bourbon, and vanilla. The flavor is chocolate, wood, sweet, with a nice bourbon alcohol kick. Good brew.

Mehmet22 (35) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Poured from a nitro tap. A rather strong porter which distinctively yields bitter chocolate and roasted malt flavor. Head was light brown and short - less that quarter inch. Seemed flat, but tasteful and finished well -- leaving a crisp and not too sweet aftertaste.
