COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So, what you have here is a high gravity porter brewed with lactose and aged in whiskey barrels. It tastes like catching your favorite song on the radio with hints of the parking meter expiring, but not getting a ticket. Itís good.

Pours a dark black color with a paperthin head, decent lacing throughout. Aroma is all whiskey, not a bad thing at all oak and whiskey with some vanilla in the back. Taste is whiskey up front and sweet chocolate and vanilla that follows. Mouthfeel is smooth but I couldnt drink a ton of this. Thinner than other milk stouts or impy stouts but not a bad change of pace. Iím really glad I tried this!

[bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Black, beige head. Looks like every other menacing barrel-aged porter. Has a slightly sweet, deep roasted malt aroma. Big whisky start on the flavour Ė sweet, deep bourbon before the finish arrives as slightly ashen. There is some lacto sweetness on the edge of the palate. It doesnít sit to well with the other sweetness from the wood, however [22042012]

Bottle at the TURD tasting. Pours near black with a beige head. Light whiskey sweetness in the aroma, with roasted malts, and milk chocolate. The flavor is sweet, with whiskey, milk chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and lightly roasted malts. Pretty good.

In bottle, thanks Craig! A black beer with a huge tan head. Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, caramel and roasty malt. Similar flavours with a little lactose and dark chocolate also. An oily mouth-feel with a pronounced alcohol burn that lingers.

Bottle at cgarvieukís Danish Invasion tasting. Deep reddish black pour, thick brown head fades to a thin rim. Nice rich nose, big lacto, some coffee, dark chocolate, hint of vanilla oak but not particularly bourbon. Surprisingly non-milky, quite stout-ish in flavour (but not in body), dark chocolate, big bourbon flavours, touch of lacto, touch of vanilla, slight brett, pretty bourbon-dominated with a long warm boozy finish.

Bottle at a tasting at Maxís for Samís visit. Pours a deep black to brown with a medium sized tan head that falls off quickly. Sweet wood and bourbon, soft sweetness. Fairly sweet, something off, creamy and smooth. A touch of wood and heat. Interesting, but not for me.
