Bottle courtesy of the Cheeseman. Pours a black cola with a medium sized tannish-light brown head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate malts, toffee, light hazelnut, vanilla, coffee, toasted oak chips and light bourbon. Taste of milk chocolate malt, toffee, coffee, light vanilla, mild bourbon, hazelnut and oak wood chips. Very nice blend of flavors.

On tap at scofflaw. Been wanting to try for quite some time... Pours a deeper cola black hue and topped with a creamy light khaki head reducing to a small ring around the edges of the glass... Smooth vanilla mild silky bourbon nose with chocolate malt accents... Flavors have a long lasting sweet bourbon presence with lots if residual sugar it seems. Lighter bodied overall with chocolate and cocoa notes throughout, a fair bit nutty.Finishes way too sweet and the body is a tad too thin, more than a tad actually.

12 oz. bottle. I’m really excited to try this one. It pours dark brown with a very small tan head. The aroma is very nutty with hints of bourbon, cocoa and pumpernickel bread. Pretty nice. The flavor is more of the same. Bourbon influence is pretty big, but not overly alcoholic. Nuts, dark bread, caramel, cocoa, vanilla, wood and coffee. Very nice and well put together. Worthy of the high rating.

pour is opaque dark brown with a tight creamy brown head. Nose is heavy roast coffee, notes of bourbon and chocolate. Taste is bourbon up front, light wood, notes of dry chocolate and a touch of coffee rind, a bit charred in back. Body is thick and rich up front but thins a little and back, soft carbonation, becomes a touch sweet in finish.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours deep black with a ring of tan head. Bourbon heat on the nose, vanilla, hazelnut, chocolate, and some medium roast malt. Taste is smooth. Nutty chocolate, powdery cocoa, vanilla, and toffee notes. Smooth and full in the mouth. Good stuff.

MacBoost (1263) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Got this as an extra from somebody... Thanks bro, whoever you are. Pours a subtle almost black with inky red edges. Almost no head. Aromas of chocolate, barrel, salty pretzels. A little edgy on the first sip. The bourbon taste boarderlines on the ridiculous. Amazing chewy bourbon character. Fuck me, this shit is blowing my mind. So salty, so chewy, so much bourbon. Fucken hell. This beer is everything a barrel aged imperial beer should be. Attenuated, complex, alcohol masked, barrel character, smoothly drinkable. Fuck this Is good shit.

12oz bottle pours a deep brown, mostly black with some creamy, beige head. Aroma is nice and inviting, vanilla, caramel, malty, brown sugar, a little light coffee, cream soda, a little brown bread. Flavor is sweet, malty, some milk chocolate, vanilla, a little wood, some coconut, some dark fruit. Full bodied, sweet finish. Super drinkable.

crossovert (7309) - Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 Delicious vanilla-y porter. Coffee in the flavor and smell. Thing but not too much. Barrel adds some heat but it isn’t bad. Def wish it was distributed.

On tap at the source. Deep brown-black with tan head. Big time nose. Big barrel vanilla, cream, brown sugar, and faint coffee/roasted malt. Flavor is beautiful coffee and cream with sweet vanilla and vanilla wafers, and light licorice. Fades to a slightly acidic roast malt and light cocoa and coffee. Medium on the palate. Great barrel qualities that cannot be understated.
