651mL at the RBWG after party in the hotel lobby. Thanks to Dan! Pours a deeper black with higher carbonation, webby sheets of lacing. Nose is malted milkshake powder, cocoa mix, vanilla, mild savory steak fat. Taste is cookie, cocoa powder, peppercorn, "pickle" in the notes but I’m not sure if I trust that being the final beer after a massive tasting. No palate faults. Fun to try.

Ah, that’s the stuff! Plenty of oak and vanilla from the bourbon enhancing the coffee and caramel of the base porter. Especially welcome after the relative disappointment of Pontificator.

Houston, we have a winner. This stuff is AMAZING. Pours a perfect black with a thick head of beige. Aroma is bourbon, bourboned wood, caramel, and light vanilla. Flavor is bourbon, bourboned wood, caramel, a little more bourbon, and a little more wood, with a touch of toffee in the finish. Thick and lingering on the tongue. Holy moly. This is AWESOME.

Midnight dark beer w/ moonlight white head. smell of bourbon, leather an biscuit. Taste of toffee and coffee with a sweet bourbon and a light bitterness and carmel after taste. Over all one of my favorites from Karbach and a great set on the couch and relax beers.
