COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barrel-aged imperial porter

This imperial porter was inspired by a Baltic version designed by Tonya Cornett. She created a beer that has nuances of milk chocolate, figs and caramel that dance throughout. Bourbon barrels from West Virginia are the perfect dance partner with its notes of dried fruit and vanilla. The complexity of this beer creates an experience of a lifetime.

Pours a dark brown with tan head. Aroma of whiskey, malt and wood. Taste is rich, with notes of chocolate bourbon, and vanilla. A very nice imperial BBA porter. Thumbs up.

Bottle at brewery. The pour is black with light head. The aroma has a great blend of the barrel and the beer that gives off sweet fruit notes. The taste is a little light and not as much flavor as the nose. Good beer, but needs some refinement. Good for a porter for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jag har så många öl att betygsätta avyer en stor åldrig öldrinkning med min goda vän Jesse, att jag inte har tid att betygsätta alla dessa och i många fall hade för öl att minnas storheten i dessa öl. Till ära för mitt svenska arv, jag skickar detta på svenska för alla recensioner från den dagen. Tack Gud för god öl !! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, oak, roastiness, dried fruit and light cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bourbon, roastiness, oak, dried fruit and light cocoa with a smooth lingering dried fruity bourbon finish.

Bottle, split with a non-RB friend. This is a big porter with big flavors and big dreams. There’s a lot of sweetness and charred malt that manage to fight it out to a balanced draw, but the barrel aging adds a number of nuances and a strong aroma of moonshine. This one gave my taste buds a lashing and left me feeling a bit woozy the next morning.

Bottle. This is a super serious porter with lots of dark fruit and sweet bourbon flavor. A real treat.

On Tap at the Boise BP Classic dark brown with a light tan head. Big malty sweet chocolate vanilla aroma. Like a candy bar. As expected malty light roast pitted fruit chocolate flavors. Some coffee and licorice. Very nice. The lighter body keeps thes from feeling like a stout. Very tasty.

On tap at 10 Barrel, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of barrel notes, some vanilla, alcohol and perfume. Flavour is along the same lines of intensity, with lots of barrels, alcohol, vanilla and dark fruitiness. Quite abrasive in the boozy department, but it’s a lovely sipper in small amounts. Very nice.
