Aroma is a nice chocolate coffee malt. Appearance is a dark brown almost black with a 1 finger tan head. Taste is a smooth chocolate, vanilla with a light coffee presence. Palate is a smooth creamy experience with good carbonation. My bottle was about a year old. Overall an excellent porter.

Poured from a bomber into a Revolution Brewing pint glass a darkest of brown with a tan head that becomes thin. Aroma is bourbon chocolate coffee & flavor is pretty much the same but even better. Richly roasted with a strong bourbon finish. The balance is very well done. Especially after aged a few months. WOW~

Bottle generously shared by Sparky! Dark mahogany pour with a creamy latte head. Loads of roasted coffee, brownie batter, vanilla, dark fruit, vanilla and bourbon. Some notes of spicy green bell pepper, as well. Would have preferred this be a little thicker and stickier. Still a damn good beer!

Bomber purchased at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Pitch black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma consists of bourbon, coffee and chocolate. Bourbon flavor up front, slightly smoothing out to a rich coffee and chocolate finish. I’ll bet it’s really nice with some age on it when the bourbon dies down a bit.

Fresh bottle from trade. Pours black with slight tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, raisin. Taste incorporates all of those plus some nice toffee/caramel richness. Lighter in body than expected but nice, deep coffee flavor. Slightly tart...the roasted malt blends very well with the sweeter notes. Solid beer.

Great bourbon and oak aroma, which comes through in the taste, along with very nice vanilla notes. I was expecting more coffee, but was great regardless.

Draft at Jerry’s. Black with big, foamy, brown head, light wet lacing / Very rich, sweet nose of bourbon barrel, semisweet chocolate, caramel, roast coffee, coconut, cream / Medium to full body, a touch thin, sweet, moderately chewy, good hop balance but little bitterness peaking through / Flavors of bourbon barrel, prune, coconut, semisweet chocolate, caramel, cream / These young, aggressive, sweet bourbon barrel stouts don’t appeal to me. Over the top with no finesse.

Smells bourbon with a little licorice, pretty different for me considering my limited experience with porters/stouts. First couple of sips start off with a lot of bourbon flavor, but coffee quickly become the dominant note, backed by roasted nuts and bread. Slightly sweet but hardly noticeable; very little head but surprisingly effervescent. A really delightful brew.

Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Tones of deep brown & black with a chunky, khaki collar that transcends from the short-lived layer of foam on top. Aroma has oily, French roast coffee beans, light lactose-y sweetness, some faint maple syrup, & overall a very tame barrel character. Perhaps only a very light hint of wood & vanillin, not much bourbon at all. Taste has plenty more "barrel" to it, though, with lots of sharp barrel tannins up front... Oak, scraping coffee bean dryness, faint cola, milky chocolate, a touch of maple, & little traces of vanilla here & there. Again, light bourbon character, but the flavors are still very nice... Lightly astringent finish, & it could be just a tad thicker. Very nice stout, & while it’s definitely a bit different from the base, I think I still prefer original Eugene to this (all things considered).
