A very good bourbon barreled porter. Almost more milk stout. Pours a deep black with a brown head. Smells of bourbon, vanilla and a hint of strawberry shortcake. Taste is similar, very milky and smooth. Bourbon and vanilla are well balanced, with more strawberry shortcake and a bit of coffee in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Aroma is dark fruit and booze. Appearance is a very dark brown with a tan head and some lacing. Taste is very dry and dark with a hint towards dates, bourbon, caramel, and vanilla. Palate is dark. Overall, a very interesting beer that I would like to try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Intoxicating aroma of bourbon, malt, coffee, chocolate and mud. Taste is far more dark coffee than chocolate. Bitter? Meh not so much. Just dark and boozy. Fun shit.

Willrunforbeer struggling to remove the wax off the top of the 12 oz. Bottle, why are brewers still waxing bottles? It does nothing to keep out air *sigh* anyhow, is straight up Rye whiskey, no hiding that. Nothing but whiskey. The flavor has a weaker note of whiskey then the aroma was leading me to believe. Roast, chocolate and integrated barrel. Body is what you find for Porter, a tad thin. But the flavor is very nice.

12oz bottle covered with lots of annoying red wax. Pours coca cola brown with a beige head. Aroma is raisin, chocolate, whiskey, vanilla. Flavor has the same, with a bit of oak in the finish. Good flavor, but a touch thin.

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.
