Review of No. 5: This isnít 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, itís 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 doesnít linger long, as bourbon still runs the show. Itís a great balance... The bourbon is definitive, but mellow enough to not overpower the lightness of the body. Itís 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!

Bottle thanks to Marcin. Burnt malt and vanilla bourbon aroma. Tastes like a bourbon nestle crunch bar. No heat. Very smooth. Damn good stuff

Beerenberger (1428) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2014
(BBH 007 aged in Four Ross barrels) aroma was mildly sweet, roasted malts, chocolate, and bourbon. Pours a solid black with a tan ring and no lacing. The taste was similar to the nose. Bourbon sweetness, vanilla, toasted marls, and suggestions of cherries. Medium-ful body with moderate carbonation. Smooth pleasing mouthfeel. Overall, since I have had only one othe Karbach brew, this was was a nice addition to the list. Iím up for 008!

Bottle at home, courtesy of Eric. Thanks man! Pour is pitch black with a huge brown head and great lacing. Big fig, raisins, dark cherries, cocoa, maple syrup, bourbon, light vanilla, and roasty aroma. Taste is bread, coconut, roasted malt, cocoa, a hint of vanilla, plums, light bourbon, and burnt caramel. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Damn decent BA porter.

Pours a dark, dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma is vanilla, oak, chocolate, roasted malts... just overall delicious. The taste, however... is dominated by alcohol. Not my thing. Itís really a shame, because this beer was so promising.

Growler labeled 007. A bit over-carbed. So much barrel: bourbon-filled nose, stout is in the background as barrel takes the spotlight. I prefer barrels to accent the base, but to each his own.
