Tap at brewery. Dark brown pour. Smells of coffee. Black coffee flavor with a slight sweet bourbon finish. Not as good as who’s your daddy but i’m not much of a coffee fan.

Huhzubendah (2399) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Served alongside the standard version. Similar appearance to the non barrel-aged version. Dark brown with a quarter inch of beige cap that leaves sparse lacing. Nice aroma, with everything present in the original, not overpowered by bourbon. A touch of oak and light, but present bourbon. Gentle sweetness. Sweet, powerful bourbon dancing with fresh, bitter coffee beans. Delightful. Well done. 4 pack $8.49 - great price for such a high quality beer

Prufrockstar (794) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2014
12 oz bottle thanks to Bacterial. Dark pour with brown head that shows up just for a moment before dissipating. Prominent coffee in the aroma that takes center stage. Chocolate falls into line in the mouth, along with artificial vanilla and residual sweetness. Full body, syrupy, thick texture, above average carbonation. Overall: tasty brew!

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Al. Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, and some bourbon. Very well balanced. Will look for this one again!

Barnoloid (115) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Exceptional BA Imperial Porter. Has a creamy mouthfeel - stays light whilst pouring almost as a dessert style beer. Aroma is vanilla bean and mocha. An outstanding beer with chewy oats and a warm bourbon barrel afterglow. This is excellent, from the opening of the bottle to the last sip.

kaser (2488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2014
This puppy is a full dessert. Thick black pour from draft at farmhouse in Evanston. Huge toffee and Carmel aroma. Scotch smell too. Taste is massive. Coffee, chocolate, toffee and milky. Love this one. Haven't liked many other from this brewery. Score

Dfonorow (1327) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is deep brown with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor of bakers chocolate, roasted malt, coffee grounds, and slight bourbon warmth. Finish is bourbon and chocolate malt.

budznsudz (553) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours dark with a whisp of tan head. Aroma of black coffee, vanilla beans, and roast. Taste of fresh brewed coffee, vanilla, oatmeal, and just the right amount of barrel. Good brew.

artmcd8 (1485) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to beerman6686. Nice to break up the barleywines with this one. Pours a dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is huge black coffee. None of that green pepper stuff. Taste is slightly sweet up front but finishes on the dry side and bitter. Not a ton of barrel spirits come past the coffee even with the 60% blend.

Great smelling beer with a wonderful coffee, chocolate and slight bourbon taste. Only complaint is that it poured completely flat and gave it a weird mouthfeel. Otherwise great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
