COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, bold, black, and aged in bourbon barrels with coffee beans. The lengthy conditioning period in the barrels creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. Additional flavors include bourbon, vanilla, and oak.

tom10101 (4524) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle (500 ml) shared at tasting. Dark reddish mahogany-brown with a small beige head leaving little lacing. Aroma is of coffee, strong caramel malts, roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla, vegetal notes but not in a bad way as well as a bit of a nutty presence. Taste isn’t too sweet even though there’s a good malt depth as well as a good amount of caramel/molasses and bourbon. Coffee is there and less vegetal than nose, there’s interesting earthy/mineral notes and chocolatey notes. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Mildly liquorous mouthfeel. Nice alcohol warmth. Well balanced. Good BBA Coffee Porter.

CanIHave4Beers (3790) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle shared by a chill bro in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a very dark brown with a small head.

The aroma is plenty coffee forward with a pleasantly light handed bourbon character, but certainly vanilla forward, roasty... rich... inviting & cool.

The flavor has a great bitter chocolate thing happening, it’s got a great coffee character & has some nice vanilla. The barrel character is well employed but light enough to be more complimentary than prominent. The beer is lightly sweet, a little peppery and pretty dang rich
