Draft at Brick Store. Murky maroon brown color, massive thick beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of vanilla, butterscotch, candied dates. Taste is boozy Christmas fruit cake. A big beer. Tasty though.

Cask at ACAT. Pours a cloudy deep amber orange with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has light spice and sweet grains with a hint of darker bread and oak. Flavor also has light spice and starts with light grains that become darker and are backed by oak.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2013
2/15/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots Natural Market! Deep brown pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring and barely laces. The BA definitely shows in the aroma with some sweetness, vanilla, and straight up booze. Under that, there’s some sweet caramel, spice, and dark fruits. Sweet caramel flavor with chocolate, plenty of that BA booziness, and a lingering spicy aspect. Eh.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle shared by dudeabide- thanks again, Nate! Pours a clear caramel color with a small off-white head. Aroma of earth, leaves, oak, and florals. The flavor follows the same lines, but boozier. Not much spice. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a boozy mouthfeel. Not sure what the aim was here, but it’s not impressive.

PorterPounder (5194) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Augusta, Ga - Toast Wine & Beverage - 12 oz bottle. Murky dark brown pour, sticky khaki colored head that sticks around a while and leaves a light trail of lacing. Aroma has a strong bourbon presence, hints of molasses. Flavor is full of bottom shelf bourbon, not much else. Some molasses, a hint of cherry cola sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Too much bourbon sweetness to allow this to be enjoyable.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Draft at th porter beer bar with mom after landing in Georgia. Pours a deep mahogany body with thin creamy off white lacing. Aroma is light fruit, sweet malt, some spice and light caramel. Mouthfeel is medium to light, vaguely creamy with notes of sweet, fruity malts, spice, light booze and caramel. A little dull overall.
