Bottle opened by Matt. Ruby brown with a creamy brown head. Lots of bourbon with a nice holiday spice, vanilla, some oak, bit of yeast. Moderate body and carbonation, sweet, hint of tang, dry, buttery on finish with a musty malt ending.

Black with a thin-medium milk chocolate head. Aroma is pretty alcoholic, bourbon, roast malt, chocolate, a little coffee. Taste is light sweet with a medium duration. Oily texture, smooth, with a little bourbon kick at the end. Nice.

(Keg at OlutExpo 2013) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brow. Aroma had wood, vanilla and vineousness. Palate was dry and full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, wood, roasted malts, vineousness and bitterness. Aftertaste had wood and vineousness. The beer had disappeared almost completely and the what was left was wood and burntness. Not good.

Bottle from HOTB. Pours a dark brown with a medium brown head. The head is full and large but dies to sustain at a light foam. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla. Taste is a bit harsh up front with a warm roasty chocolatey finish with a bit of ash to it. Slightly dry. Light carbonation and a thin feel.

Opaque black beer, good grey - tan head. Smooth palate, softish and semi dry. Smooth dark malt. Bitterish seltzer minerals. A little bitter wood. Raisins. Mild and smooth bourbon. Towards the dry finish mild roast malt appears. Not bad, needs to warm up a bit - a bit clunky when fridge fresh.

DocLock (8250) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours turbid dark black with minimal head. Nose is big oaky bourbon, some spice, hops, roasty malt, plum. Tastes rich, with roasty malt, oak and bourbon up front, some plum, cherry, and spice at mid-palate, and as it warms it gets port winey, with subtle and effective oak. Nicely made, as usual with these guys.

[bottle-thanks, fonefan] Oak and pumpernickel aroma with sweet and tart chocolate. Opaque black under a light brown cover. Sweet and bitter chocolate and mild oak presence. Sweet and with some dried fruit. Full body, medium carbonation, clean finish.

A rich porter made with all the usual Xmas spices (cloves, corriander seed, star anise), aged for 8 months in bourbon barrels. Nice mocca head, taste full of dark chocolate, vanilla, warming whisky and finishing with smooth coffee.. this is what Xmas should taste like!!
