Almost black in color with a khaki head. Roasted malt, some bourbon, and cocoa. Oak, tons of green apple, and a touch of solvent on the nose. The flavor is solventy and heavy on the green apple. Roasted malt, bourbon, cocoa, and some coffee. Not very pleasant.

Bottle... Pours very dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Aroma is a malty, roasted swirl of milk chocolate, bourbon, toasted coconut and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with spritzy carbonation. Flavor is semisweet vanilla, nuttiness and just the right amount of bourbon. Acrid, lightly acidic, fudge finish. Over-carbonation is the only problem here. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Sammy (8398) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottled February 2013. Ageing did it some good, as very bourbon but smooth, bourbon not overwhelming. Black, smooth, significant aroma. Also chocolate in aroma. I think this one from masterski trade.

Ughsmash (7099) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
On tap at GTMW. Poured deep brown with a lovely, tall, dark beige head. The aroma was sweet and bourbonny upfront, over well-roasted (near-burnt) black patent and molasses.. sweeter chocolate undertones.. great balance! The flavor found warm, burnt black malts cut by milkier sugars and vanilla.. sweet bourbon and toasty oak laced throughout.. solid balance, but not quite up to par with the nose. Heavy-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. I really enjoyed this!

Aroma and flavor of black tea. Was expecting coffee but this has a strange flavor and scent to it.

Draft sample at FOBAB 2010. Pours a cloudy amber-brown color with a small beige head. I haven’t had the regular Eugene but this makes me want to try it. Notes of vanilla, oak, bourbon, chocolate, caramel malts, and roast. Very simple, smooth, and balanced. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, roasted malty mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Very nice.

BBB63 (5962) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2010
FoBAB 2010: Basically opaque with just a hint of amber highlight, long lasting creamy off-white head and very good lace. The aroma seems more that a bit old and oxidized (more than your average BA beer) with some flowery, tobacco, and leathery earthy vapours, plum and walnut, a touch of vanilla and bourbon, a some beginnings of wild yeast lactic acid tones. The taste is twangy and fruity with a nutty and bready background. Light handed coffee and chocolate tones along with equally light handed bourbon character. The issue is a the hint of infected lactic sourness that sort of detracts from it all. The mouth feel is smooth and lush, easy to drink. While there are a few flaws, I also liked that it was not a bourbon bomb and you still could get a lot of basic porter character about this beer.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Sampled at FoBAB 2010 (Chicago, IL). Pours a roasty brownish black opaque hue, decent tannish head laces ok. Aromas are roasty malts, vanilla, some floral and pine, cocoa. Initial is mellow, roasty maalts, cocoa, vanilla, coffee, bourbon, wet oak, rich spirit. Oak, sweet, vanilla, bourbon. Some light spirirt, wert hops. Finish is balanced sweet, roast, toast, warm. Nice hops shine through, still fairly fresh, the barrel takes a bigger hold on the beer, spirit and warmth. Nice beer, a bit green around the edges, but I think that"s what they were going for honestly. I’d like another go at this, I really enjoyed it.

On tap at Revolution. Nice whiskey aroma up front, though that overpowers everything else just a bit. Underneath nice notes of coffee, chocolate, and roast.
