DiarmaidBHK (4429) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle from Magsinva. Pours black with a thin brown head. A bit of wood on the nose. Definitely has the characteristics of a Baltic porter on the tongue with hints of bourbon and wood. Hides its booze pretty well. Solid for style.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a slightly translucent dark brown cola with bubbly beige head that steadily dissipates into thinner lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, vanilla, oak, roast, and mild notes of bitter hops. Tastes like it smells, but less decadent and more oaky. Mouthfeel is medium to medium-full bodied; a bit thin for 12%. Good, not great, and smells better than it tastes.

dresden (1516) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle, thanks tim! Deep brown with tan head. Fruity aroma, vanilla, oak. Flavour is a very strong bourbon beer, fruit and vanilla are there but its quite boozy. Overall super nice though.

Bourbon, malt, look, start all there......finish is not. Seems out of balance with finish. Heavy Hershey chocolate at the end. So close.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 Deep dark color and small head. Giggity. Bourbon is a perfect balance. Not bad at all. Porter is rich. Not thick but not light. Bottle
