16.9 oz. bottle. Poured dark brown with a short lived off white head. No lace. Strong bourbon aroma with secondary chocolate, vanilla and oak tannin. Semi sweetness on the flavor. Everything in the nose is also present on the tongue. Pick up a hint of the brown sugar the label mentions. Bourbon notes keep the chocolate and caramel from being to sweet. Oats give the body smoothness. Medium bodied. This was nice!

From the .5 liter bottle with no date that I can see. It pours a deep dark brown to near black with a moderate tan head that fades. The Bourbon barrel aging is most evident in the aroma along with roasted dark malts, sweet dark bread, and a low to no hop profile. But if you are looking for some barrel-aged sensation you will not be disappointed with this one. The body is smooth and around medium. The sweet roasted dark malts can be found more so in the taste along with that slightly boozy barrel aging sensation that sticks with the palate from start to finish. And yet it maintains the sweetness of a good Porter. Nice job Jack’s Abby.

dmac (6110) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle via IP trade. Poured a medium to slightly fuller density of pitch black under an average sized tight foamy beige head. Aroma is a bit off. Light sour dark cherry notes are beginning to creep in over the dry dark chocolate and light woody bourbon. As the beer warms the sour disappears and some roasted coconut comes out. Flavor is very dry chocolate, light vanilla bourbon, wood, burnt toast, earthy. Fuller body, starts off syrupy but eventually it turns into an almost harsh dryness on the end. Nice once the sourness disappears.

Sweet, with a light Barrel character, it is still built like a brick sh#thouse. Big coffee and vanilla notes, medium length finish.

ACHops (1563) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2016
On tap @ Doc Ponds. Pours thick inky brownish black with thin mocha head. Aroma is big roasty dry dark chocolate malts, soy sauce. Rich, oaky, boozy mouthfeel, creamy smooth body, lovely barrel notes on the finish. Minimal bourbon or booze. Somewhat thin body as expected for a Baltic Porter. Rich flavor, but drinks much lighter than 10%.
