So rich in taste and aroma. The barrel aging softened a lot of the harsh elements that are in the original porter. A lot sweet notes but heavy body.

On tap at brewery. Aroma of coffee, bourbon, wood, chocolate, some piny hops and caramel. Jet black hue with an average sized creamy khaki head that lasted and left good lace. Flavors of smoky, bourbon, ,caramel and espresso. Palate is smooth and flat. Just a fantastic porter. Very very good. I’d love to try it bottle conditioned or with some age. The nitro tap kind of sucked

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 This beer is like a combination of their Oatmeal Stout and Porter on steroids. Brimming with sweetness from being gaged in bourbon barrells, there is plenty of vanilla, coffee, maple syrup, and cocoa to keep anyone busy enjoying it’s flavors. Well done.

On tap at Founders. Nice aroma of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and oak. Great dark appearance with a creamy, everlasting head. Great beer, something I come to expect from Founders!!

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2008
On tap at Founders. The barrel aging did the trick as this had a wonderfully smooth palate of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and coffee. The more I sipped on this, the more I dug it. On of the best porters I’ve drunk. If only they would have let me buy a growler!

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On tap at MIBGSF 08. Pours black with a tiny tan colored head. Aroma is oak, bourbon, chocolate, caramel. Flavor is nice hint of oak, bourbon, and vanilla, on top of the chocolate, caramel, roast, coffee notes of the original beer. Palate is full bodied, mild carbonation, finished sweet and mildly warming. This is fantastic use of Woodford barrels, the bourbon just supurbly compliments an already fantastic beer! Hopefully this gets bottled one day as I know the porter is scheduled to be released for the first time in a long time this year. Terrific stuff!!

GTMW 2008. The beer pours to a pitch black body with a tan head. The aroma is milk chocolate and vanilla. Sweet. The flavor is roasted black patent, light licorice, sweet milk chocolate and dark chocolate chips. Vanilla and oak. Rich sweet palate with a full body and nice texture and great coating.

StoutFest (77) - Stoutville, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Dark brown almost black with a brown tanish very thin head. Medium to full bodied. Nose is of an imperial stout. Bourbon, coffee, and lots of roastyness to it. Im not a fan of porters but wow is this a great beer. This is an awesome beer if your into imperial stouts even though its not. It tastes like one. This is what their imperial stout should be. Roast, roast, and more roast with some coffee and bourbon notes balancing with a sweet almost chocolate like flavor with a robust roasty long lingering finish.
