On tap, pours a hazy dark brown color with a medium tan head that leaves good lacing. Smells of bourbon, oak, chocolate, roasted malt and caramel. Tastes of the same things. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy with good carbonation. Great flavor for a barrel aged porter. Nicely balanced too. Definitely going to drink this again in the near future.

750ml bottle from Proof (I think). Black-brown pour with a big foamy tan head and strong retention. Aroma is dusty, mineral, cocoa. Tastes are roasty, nuts, vanilla, cherry, light licorice, chocolate, dark fruit, rye, earthy, little woody. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Tasted on draft. Pours a very dark brown almost black with a light tan head. Good lacing. Very nice aroma of roasted malt, a lot of chocolate and a little sweet bourbon. Full bodied and very creamy and clingy on the palate. Big time roasted malt and chocolate tastes with a hint of bourbon. Definitely not dominated by the bourbon. Very smooth and well balanced. Excellent porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had quite awhile back, I guess I forgot to rate it. This is a thick beer with a nice roast and bite, and not too sweet. Really quite tasty.

Bottle. Dark cola color with a big mocha head. Aroma is charred malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste follows suit and adds a big marshmallow and fudge finish with a citrusy hop note. Light pillowy mouthfeel. Delicious and super drinkable.

On tap in Blind Tiger NYC. Very black, thin white head. Roasty and malty, choclate, some oatiness. Grainy. Not overly bitter, slightly herbal. Somewhat heavy, treacly, boozy. Tasty stuff.

From bottle, pours black with big tan head. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate, bourbon. Taste is chocolate, wood, vanilla, and the bourbon is nice and light. Not overpowering bourbon like some barrel aged beers can be, but you still get a nice bourbon flavor. Awesome
