Aroma has cherry, oak, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar and booze. Pours out black with a light tan head that stays around for a long time. The taste brings out everything that I said in the aroma, except it tastes way boozier than it smells. Palate is good; overall this is very well made. This brewery is hit and miss with me, but they got this one right. Interesting style, great execution. Definitely worth a try. A tad boozy; perhaps I should have aged it longer.

Toffee malt aroma. Pours black with a thin, quickly fading dark tan head. Medium bodied. Candy toffee sweet. A slight coffee bitterness on the finish. Lots of boozy warming. Very tasty.

RickTStiles (816) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2015
pours very dark brown with lasting beige head and dense lacing. aroma is sweet, woody, chocolaty and bourbontastic. This beer is pulling no punches. taste has notes of wood, wood and wood with vanilla, chocolate, cocoa powder, bourbon, and some wood. finish is sticky sweey and boozy as hell. alcohol is prominent throughout. Probably the best Texas beer I’ve yet had.

Bottle into a big snifter. Dark chocolate brown, thin yet dark. Minuscule head the color of cocoa powder recedes quickly. The nose: chocolate syrup, fresh coconut, a hint of banana, a splash of ethanol, a bit of plum and low-shelf whiskey. Coconut in the flavor mixes with plum, vanilla, alcohol, cocoa nibs and wood chips. A very smooth blend with lots of barrel character and just enough stout to back it up. Medium body. Soft and velvety, with gentle bubbles and just a bit of heat. Caressing. Overall: fruity, with good hits of cocoa and oaky bourbon. Solidly done.

Fortunate to have last glass poured from the cask at Hay Merchant last year. Poured in a snifter. Dark black color with half inch head. Aromas of chocolate, booze and wood. First note was of chocolate full bodied porter then boozieness from the bourbon then ends with slight woody feel and chocolate dissipating off the tongue. Great experience like watching unicorns fornicate.

Draft 2014 vintage. Deep black. Little lace. Bourbon strong on the nose but not cloying. Pallet is somewhat sweet and lingering. Mouthfeel is thick, filling and smooth. Notes of vanilla bourbon toffee with balances bitter and thick finish that quickly lightens but lingers. Quite like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black pour with a thin ring of beige head. Big boozy bourbon nose with oak char and brown sugar and sharp liquor and earthy cocoa. And more roast. Big boozy flavor too with a nice chat and bourbon flavor with dark sweet earthy malts, a little molasses and strong bitterness. Roasted caramel and bourbon round out the finish. Deep and warm and sweet with a solid yet smooth bourbon backing.

This might be the most delicious beer I’ve ever tasted. Besides having a perfect porter flavor, this beer had a creamy quality that was out of this world.
