Bottle #22, not sure which vintage, 6/16/14. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, mild vanilla and whiskey. The taste is roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, dark fruits, whiskey. Medium bodied, lingering tartness.

Bomber to taster. Looks good; a slightly translucent dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, and oak. Tastes like it smells with a bit of tartness on the tongue. Enjoyable.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy tan head that lasts. The aroma is a strong chocolate and roast. Medium mouthfeel with nice sweet roast, raisin, dark chocolate, hides alcoholw well, very impressive.

Bottle pour thanks to my friend Josh. Pours a darker brown to black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is sweet bourbon and chocate and vanilla beans. The taste is sweet and boozy with vanilla coming through nicely. Thicker mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

JMerritt (1792) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bomber. Pours black with a putty brown head formed of tightly grouped bubbles. Head rapidly falls to a thin, even ring. Incredibly rich molasses aroma with caramel, oaky-sweet bourbon, toasted marshmallow and dry bakers cocoa. Flavor is moderately sweet with very subtle alcohol underneath lightly bitter roast coffee, smooth caramel candies and milk chocolate. Silky, almost milky mouthfeel. Almost buttery wood notes become more pronounced in the finish as it warms. Phenomenal porter.

fishonmyplane (424) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Great porter with a classic flavor combining roasted malts, chocolate, and hints of vanilla. The aging has mellowed the brew and added some nice depth. A great example of how barrel-aging should be done.

Boozy. The beer is dark brown. A dark tan head sits on top. The aroma is a brown ale with some booze. The flavor is like a porter with deep roasted malts. Some barrel aging. Light sourness. Deep malty body that finishes clean. Much better flavor than aroma.
