Had it on tap. Pours black with a rich, creamy, finger length, tan hed that does not dissipate. You can smell Woodford Reserve from a foot away. At a closer distance, I picked up aromas of dark chocolate and a bit of both woody and roasty notes. Really thick and creamy mouthfeel, bourbon and dark chocolate aftertaste. My only critique of this awesome beer is the bourbon may be too much.

650 ml bomber from Cork Keg in Rockford. No bottle date. Pour is opaque black with a cream colored head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma has green coffee, chocolate, coconut and bourbon. Taste is of sweet chocolate, roast, vanilla, some lactose, some oaky-ness. Raw more than smooth; very tasty. Medium to full bodied. Finishes fairly well blended between the bitter and the sweet - the raw coffee vs the bourbony vanilla. More and more oaky down through the glass. This is very nice. Aging(?) maybe would smooth it for an extra notch. 15.4

Bomber - very well done. Gorgeous pour with foamy sudsy off white head. Nose of chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is very well balanced with similar notes and a touch of vanilla. Lacks the metallic taste that many porters have. Tad thinner than others but does not take away from anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2015 Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. Opaque pitch black color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, huge coffee espresso and bourbon, chocolate and dark chocolate. Oh yeah I love this. Taste malts, roast, dark chocolate, bourbon, espresso, coffee, bitter and chocolate sweet-bitter. Wow this beer is packed with everything I love in a beer! Great stuff! Only one thing that could be improved imo: the body is a bit thin. Incredible that they got this much aroma and flavour in an 8.5% ABV beer but I need this to be more creamy and thick. Still, this is lovely. Delightful.

Bottle @ benzai. Black colour with a small light brown head. Smells bourbon, cognac, almond, alcohol, nuts, very sweet, chocolate, roasty, coffee. Tastes almond, bourbon, watery, vanilla, chocolate, roasty, coffee. Thin to medium body, soft carbo. Smells like a big, mean bold beer but kinda disappoints when it comes to taste and body. Doesn’t make it a bad beer though.

Draft. Onyx. One inch of head the color of graham cracker has decent retention, but becomes a thin top layer eventually. Coffee, vanilla, bourbon and dark chocolate in the nose. The java is like sharp, oily espresso. Tangy, sweet flavor. Coffee is more subdue here, and there’s more sweet bourbon. Beans are again oily, and there’s an almost sour dark cherry thing going on. Rich, bittersweet chocolate. Smooth, with some vanilla and charred oak. Quite warming on the way down. Thinner body than you’d think. A bit too sweet overall, but I like the level of coffee and its balance with the barrel.
