This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was bourbon. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of cucumber roasted malt bourbon and chocolate. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Black pour with tan head than fades to leave a thin film on tol of beer. Sweet aroma. Flavor is nice with vanilla, chocolate, and coffee with a nice bourbon touch. Palate is light enough to not weigh yo down but is not overly thin. Good body for a porter. One of my wife’s better random purchases.

12 oz bottle from Tavour. Nose is chocolate, light bourbon, and vanilla. Black with a medium tan head. Flavor is bourbony, with vanilla and chocolate. Nicely flavored, better than the aroma by itself.
