Bomber. Pours black w big, light-brown head w good lacing on glass. Nose is of cocoa, bourbon and toast malt. Taste is a good balance of bourbon and chocolate. Mouhfeel is medium and creamy. Very nice.
This porter is built as advertised. Bourbon barrel aging is front and center but not overwhelming. Thoroughly enjoyed it. BelgianBeerGal (4255) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2017 Bottle Whit bought at Lone Star Beverages drank playing Nerts on Christmas. Really tasty with tons of bourbon. The base porter is nice too. Well done. KevinReddirt (238) - Midland, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2017
Pretty certain I am tasting the 007 version. The Karbach website indicates a 3/17 release and 12.5% ABV. So there. This bomber was brought back from the Casual Pint in San Angelo, TX. Opened and poured into my Buffalo Bayou snifter I find a coal black liquid topped by a thin but decentlly replenished light brown head. The nose is chocolate, cherry and vanilla. A sip then, wow, very good. Semi-sweet chocolate, leather, a strawberry sweetness finished with a stiff bitterness. The bourbon floats around the perimeter. Porter, stout, whatever, nice.
