Vinous and slightly cereal aroma with sweet, dried fruits.
Prune and raisins in the flavour.
Soft and smooth. bubblehouse (1531) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Really tasty. A good porter that almosts tastes a little sour. Aging in the bourbon barrells suited it well. blankboy (7691) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015

Draft at Uber, Seattle. Cloudy dark brown, lingering stringy tan head. Chalky, cocoa nib, dry and bitter. Odd coffee, great dry bitter. Quite tasty. rondphoto (4455) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 12, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, brown head, stripes of lace. Taste is bittersweet toasted malt, light carbonation, and mouth-drying hops in the finish. Big taste, wouldn’t take much to overfill me. Nearly works, but balance and flavor miss the mark. Maakun (5591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2015
