Pours jet black with a thin mocha head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, molasses and vanilla. Taste is roasty chocolate, coffee and bourbon. Way too carbed. Not bad, the excess carbonation just ruins this for me.

lb4lb (2555) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2014
Smell is strong vanilla and bourbon and a bit oversweet. Dark black pour and lots of head. Taste is of bourbon and more milky or semi sweet chocolate. Not too dry or bitter up front but a bit bitter in the finish. Thinner than expected and almost a hint of booze I think. There is a lightness to the finish despite it being strong. Lots of bourbon flavor. Good, not great.

Review of No. 5: This isn’t a thin porter. Chalk full of robust, roasted malts and dense darkness, this may as well be an imperial stout. Topped with a beautiful, dense, beige colored head, it’s easy on the nose with a light, but balanced, bouquet of roasted malts and bourbon. I was expecting more bourbon in the nose, but this is nice and mellow. The bourbon takes front stage in the mouth, however, and the lighter, porter body keeps roasted malt weight minimal. Light roasted malts, chocolate, and a soft bourbon flavor hover above the center of the tongue. Some chocolate presents itself up front, but it doesn’t linger long, as bourbon still runs the show. It’s a great balance... The bourbon is definitive, but mellow enough to not overpower the lightness of the body. It’s incredibly soft, creamy, and perfectly bodied. Although I think this is, all around, perfectly balanced. It could even handle a little more alcohol for a cozy, warm bite to compliment its strong bourbon presence. Still, this is wonderful as it is. Classy, mellow, and it warms the belly. Makes me happy on a cold November during a "winter" storm!
