Black pour with a small foamy light tan head. Aroma has some bourbon notes with a bit of dark cocoa and a caramel notes. The flavor is rich and smooth with some sweet caramel flavors, dark cocoa, light oaked bourbon, some wood, and more caramel cocoa tones. Really tasty and big with caramel and chocolate bourbon notes.

750ml bottle. oily black pour with a very large, fluffy, whipped brown head. aroma hints at oaky vanilla note with milk chocolate roasted malts. a bit more carbonated than i prefer, with a medium body. flavor has notes of milk chocolate, oak barrel, hints of vanilla, caramel, and toast. there is a light distracting funkiness probably from the barrel. solid, but not my favorite in the awesome crooked line series.

Overpriced bottle at Freakin Frog. Slight chocolate to this porter. But aroma doesn’t give off chocolate so much as something else. Slight roast. Creamy.

ben4321 (3575) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/26/13

Aroma: The nose is roasted mats, bourbon, toast, brown sugar, molasses, and a hint of chocolate
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a light brown head and some drippy lace
Flavor: It has a dry, malty flavor with plenty of roast, and noticeable but not overpowering bourbon
Palate: The body is mid-full, it has an average carbonation, mild heat, and a dry, roasty finish
Overall Impression:  This one works quite nicely. There’s noticeable bourbon in the right balance with plenty of malt. It isn’t super sweet thanks to some dry, roasty components. Overall, this one is quite good.

obguthr (3454) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Charred oak, coffee, and prune nose, with an emphasis on the latter. Black, thin tan head. Prune and charred oak flavor, maybe some fudge. Medium bodied, smooth, and drinkable.Alcohol only noticeable on the back end and not excessive. No bourbon detected, which is a plus for me. Fairly simple, but solid.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting Sep 14, 2013 - Pours very dark brown and has an aroma of dark roast malt, coffee, and chocolate. It tastes of smoky, dark roast malt with chocolate. The palate is smooth and full bodied. Some roasty bitterness lingers in the finish. Almost 12 months on bourbon? I’m surprised. I couldn’t really taste bourbon. Good beer though...

Dark beer with a foamy brown head. Lots of chocolate in the nose. Flavors of chocolate, ripe fruit, raisin with some caramel sweetness and warming alcohol. Some oak and vanilla flavors. This is a smooth, rich beer.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick and foamy tan head. Nose is chocolate, plum, molasses and oak. Rich and creamy with a sharp tang. Taste is milk chocolate, black walnut, caramel, earth, wood and faint bourbon. Satisfying, easy drinker.

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
On tap at Mekong. Poured black with a good very light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, faint bourbon. Flavor is chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and more woodsy bourbon notes. Medium body, quite smooth on the palate. Nicely done baltic porter, and the bourbon aging gives it an interesting twist. Quite good.
