Nitro draft poured a thick beige head, brown body with chocolate, bourbon undertones and strong sweet malts. Many stout qualities to this beer which has me question why it is labelled a porter.

Khyber Pass. Billed as a Nitro Draft but the carbonation is very low. Opaque brown pour. Tan head disappeared entirely within 30 seconds. Minimal aroma. Delicate dark flavors for a Porter. Vanilla bourbon. Tootsie Rolls. Slight ash. Bourbon barrel flavors are complex but mild. Liquorice. Root beer. Prunes. Not bad but wondering if I had a bad glass of it.

Taster at The Gem and Keystone. Nitro tap. Smells of strong vanilla and wood. Sweet. A bit of ash on the finish. Super smooth and creamy. Excellent.

Nitro. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Caramel candies, vanilla, light bourbon, light roasted malts, and a ton of sweetness. Pretty good despite being a bit too sweet.

Dark brown with deep red hilites upto the light and a thick lasting foamy tan head; aroma is sweet vanilla and hints of fruit(cherry?); Flava is sweet rich vanilla caramel with notes of alcohol and slight bourbon; feels rich and creamy with just enough fizz to tease the tongue; finishes dryish with some malty sweet and alcoholic

Pours black with a mocha head. Aroma is roast, vanilla and dark chocolate. Taste was sweet with some bitters. Lighter bodied then expected with some stickiness.

On nitro at Capones. Pours a black color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of caramel, roast, and vanilla, with some chocolate mixed in. A sweet caramel taste with nice roasty notes. Vanilla up front, chocolate through the finish. Really excellent on nitro.
