On draught at the Blue Heron brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a dark cola brown colored porter with some dark copper highlights and a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind minimal lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malts, a hint of dry English-style hops, molasses, and some vanilla. Flavor is medium bodied, very little bourbon presence but plenty of toasted dark malt and vanilla flavors. Finish is quite smooth, nice balanced toasted dark malt, chocolate, vanilla and a touch of dry hops. The bourbon oak aging really balanced out the flavors compared to the base Pandemonium Porter.
