Dark brown body that holds up a creamy, thick, long lasting tan head. The aroma has cocoa powder, roast malt and a bit of coffee. The flavor starts with a touch of bitter roast malt, then the sweet malts provide support with chocolate and the coffee. Very solid Porter. bytemesis (8396) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle from 2012 thanks to JCB. Opens with a health pop. Pours deep mahogany, very large tan head that eventually dissipates into sticky clumpy residual and lacing. Aroma has notes of bourbon, roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, lots of bourbon and not a lot else that has survived. Lightish body, high, to the point of offputting, carbonation. CloakedDagger (2481) - - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear, dark brown with a warm, reddish hue. Lively, creamy and lacing light brown head. Very heavy Bourbon aromas, not boozy or anything, but intense. Medium-bodied, subtle roast, some vanilla and the rest is all Bourbon. Good thing I love Bourbon.... Very drinkable. 220915 unclemike (3124) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 14, 2015
number 2500 rating Pours a dark brown color with a dense creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, leafy hops and faint smoky notes. The taste is roasted malts, bourbon, faint nutty notes, caramel, leafy hops and chocolate. A light tartness as well. Medium bodied. AirForceHops (7238) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 13, 2015
22 oz. bottle shared by Willrunforbeer, huge thanks on this one! We believe this is a 2013 vintage. Thicker tan head sitting on the dark brown liquid. Wow! The aroma is a nice level of bourbon mixed with chocolate malt. The flavor has what I would say is Jack Daniels. Mild Jack but Jack Daniels never-the-less. Secondary notes of tobacco leaves and pumpernickel bread. Finishes real clean for a BBA brew, very light earthiness after the sip. Nice stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a huge creamy-foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was strong bourbon, cocoa, tangy, malty, vanilla and a bit of chocolate syrup. The flavor was bourbon, sweet toasty malts, honey, vanilla, more bourbon and an odd off presence underneath. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting but I was a bit disappointed. crajun (1243) - , Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2014
bottle to glass. aged 1+ years. disappointed in this one. slightly over roasted and thinner than I wanted it to be - not a depth of flavor. somce chocolate but lacked any bourbon barrel additives for me. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle from my buddy in Asheville. Poured into small snifters and shared with Dani and Brian at the Pig. Pours a deep amber brown with very little head. Mild ringing. Aroma is graham cracker, brown sugar, vanilla, cookie dough, chocolate chips, and bread. The taste was chocolate chip cookie dough, vanilla, brown sugar, toffee, slight barrel, and chocolate. Finish is flavorful and fairly light. Medium to light in body. I like a little more full body on this style but that’s my only complaint. Very nice flavor profiles.
