Snifter at the pub. Pours a deep black with a beige creamy ring of a head. Strong nice coffee aroma with lots of chocolate, wood, and vanilla. The flavor is similar, strong in coffee chocolate and vanilla. The malts are fairly sweet, which gets old. I’d like it more on the dry side like Hugene.

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.

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.

Wonderful chocolate coffee aroma. Big foamy head which lingers nicely. Very dark brown with moderate thickness. Taste has an awesome carbonated coffee flavor with a touch of chocolate sweetness on the end. Very nice. Could be thicker.
