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

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.

750 ml, corked and caged. Cool label. Pours a pitch black color with a medium, very creamy brown head. An interesting nose of bourbon, roast, metallic notes, anise. The flavor is great: sweet vanilla, bourbon, roast, mellow fruit, a gentle creamy palate. Coca. A bit of cola in the finish and more vanilla. Very decadent. Awesome. The palate is amazing.

Bottle. Colour...basically black with a thick tan head. Nose...oak, vanillin, toffee. Palate...creamy though not esp thick. Lots of oak and some smoke with an ashen/char aspect that exists throughout the palate. There’s plenty of chocolate, as well, but in a subdued manner that just happens to be omnipresent through the experience.

Big bottle. Pours a thick black color with a thick tan head on it. I found it slightly bitter with just a hint of roasting in there. The feel of it was a tad harsh, but it was a very interesting drink.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers on New Years Eve... Poured deep, jet black with a easy forming, eggy, off-white head. A nice drinking Baltic Porter. Smooth, clean, well rounded. Not too cloying or thick of a mouthfeel. Nice notes of cherries and other dark fruits with vanilla, worty malts, caramel cream, and a faint oak booziness. Not too oaky or woody. Definitely seemed to have been blended out a bit. A great beer. If it was about $2-3 cheaper it would make for a great buy.

On draught at Roscoe’s. Deep dark porter almost feels like a stout. Barrel aging imparts rich boozy aftertaste.

Thin, dark body, average head. The aroma is sweet and smokey. The bourbon quality is present as a rich vanilla, and the smokey malt qualities had a nutty, bready character that just worked perfectly with the oak. I’d suggest this as a great starter for anyone who’s interested in bourbon barrel aged beers, it’s very smooth and very sweet, but not at all subtle. Of the beers I tried that were _new_ to me, this is the one I’ll most certainly add to my own regular rotation if I can find it.

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.

Bottles from Capone’s. Craft Ale House, Frank Smith’s, and Blue Dog. Pours dark brown, fairly thick and turbid, with tan head that laces well. Nose is oaky bourbon, cacao,, black patent malt.. Tastes of patent malt, oaky bourbon, earthy brown sugary figgy fruit, cacao, vanilla. Finishes complex and velvety.
