Draft at the Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta. Deep brown pour with a think off-white head. Head lasted only 60 seconds. Some lacing. Aroma of barrel, bourbon, booze, mocha, cocoa nibs, vanilla, and dark fruits. The taste was serious bourbon and barrel, nibs, dark chocolate, and vanilla. Slight tobacco. Heavy body, little oily. Strong finish. Powerful flavors and overall awesome.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown, almost black with a dark tan head. Aroma is slight chocolate and vanilla bean. A bit of bourbon, but not strong. Flavor is light peat and smoke with a nice but of sweet malt. Bourbon is understated, comes in a bit at the end. It does finish a little thin, but other than that fairly tasty.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).
Large and durable head over an opaque and, I think, murky black body.
Aroma: uninviting, dank mess smells more like old red wine barrels were used rather than bourbon barrels. Improved a little with warming.
Flavor: hard to get past the aroma but here goes... Not bad. Not great but not bad. Still, not as expected and a bit too sweet. This is from a keg I saw getting delivered directly from the brewery earlier today, so there’ s no way this should be bad beer. Cannot account for the bad aroma except to suspect the barrel.
Feel: medium body and carbonation.

Bomber from Maltitude in Columbus, GA. Pours a semi translucent black / very dark brown. Decent head with medium retention. Aroma is strong bourbon notes with some subtle caramel and sugar hints. Taste is bourbon, oak notes, alcohol. Transitions to a sweet, roasted caramel malt flavor. Palate is thin with medium-high carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable beer, with complex and well defined flavor profile.

Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Pours a nice looking dark chocolate. Nice peatiness with a light caramel malt body. Classic representation of the scotch ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper brown from the bottle with dissipating tan brown head that leaves little to no lace. Aroma is bourbon and wood and tannins and smoky malt. Taste is definitely bourbon heavy with a hint of smokiness thrown in. Sweet but not overbearing, light carbonation. Pretty solid offering.

This beer pours a very dark brown only a bit of light comes through with a tan head that persists. At first the smell of bourbon sweetness is all you get then comes the bit of chocolate, malt and vanilla. The taste is wonderful the vanilla sweetness of bourbon first followed by the chocolate malt with a hint of smokiness in it. Wonderful beer

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours midnight brown/black with creamy tan head. Aroma is smoky with dark fruit. Flavor is rich smooth and nutty. There is a rounded prune flavor initially that melts into more of the smoky roasted malts. Very good brew.
