This poured dark black in color with a thin head that faded away. Aromas and flavors were of chocolate, bourbon and crŤme. This was medium-bodied, smooth and rich in the midpalate. It was very engaging and quite enjoyable to drink. Given the great balance this is one I could drink again and again.

(Bottle, thanks to wetherel) Pours black with brown edges and almost no head. The aroma holds tones of mild aromatic, spicy and medium roasted cold coffee up front with tones of gravel, tar and mild jalapeno oil. Good maltiness. Medium sweet caramel/fudge, liquorice, nuts and chocolate notes alongside light hints of vanilla from the oak. Just a whisper of dark fruits. The flavour is well balanced with notes of caramelly/toffee-like malt, nutty/vanilla-ish oak and dry coffee roast. Sweet dark fruits in the undertones. The mouthfeel is soft, full, velvety and light oily. A medium sweetness lingers but the coffee dries it out a bit. Medium bodied. Not that complex but the balance is perfect.

Hugely dark, rich porter. Mocha, baking chocolate, light vanilla and nut, and overwhelming alcohol make up the flavor profile. The alcohol doesn’t overwhelm completely though, and actually enhances the other flavors. Very delicious.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Impentrable, iunky black, creamy, tossled tan head on top. Very nice. Bourbon hits the nose at first. That mix of charcoal and molasses, sweet elixir mixed with heady booze. Some candyish qualities meld with woodiness, but little porteresque characteristics remain. Not complaining, though... Letís taste, shall we...Bam, bam, bam! Thick chocolate meets blackstrap molasses, brown sugar, tar, anise, tree bark, ...what else? leather, maple sap...much deeper than the "caramel, toffee, vanilla, toasted oak, hazelnut" listed on the label...maybe Iím just tired of those words. wow, this is a wicked mix on the tonque...these brewers really did go wild, didnít they? Quite a treat this guy. Loved it, and highly reccomend it.

Beer 10 of Officially the Best Thursday in Beer ever in the existence of my life. 12ozer shared with Wetherel and my GF Cyn and Wetherel provided the bottle. Porus dark brown/black with a ring of light brown. Nose is rich and bold and pretty much grade A huge it is big. Taste is chocolately bourbony with a slightly tartness to it. Big Malt Big Roastyness and overall very very good. I like this brewery and their crazy beers, some how bottled in 12ozers.

3fourths (8110) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Bottle shared by kmweaver. Nose of sharp buttery Jack Daniels, cocoa and roast, with a similarly buttery flavor of greenish/fresh toffee, coffee grounds, chocolate malt and char. Falls apart a bit on the back, never really all that thick, but still very delicious and rich. Finishes slightly sweeter than it begins, with a sweet vanilla, toffee and caramel bourbon note. Good stuff.

argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 20, 2008
(12oz bottle, thanks kmweaver) Clear cola/dark brown body with small tan head. Aroma is moderately sweet, Bourbon/vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, light alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolate/cocoa, some vanilla, light caramel. Smooth medium-full body. At least at this point in the aging, the barrel aging is nicely complementary rather than dominant.
