Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Copious amount of lace left around the glass as it goes down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of bourbon, hints of dark fruit, and cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty and woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer, certainly worth a try." tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2015
750 shared poured a medium to dark brown with off white head. nice roasted malt nose along with the bourbon barrel and vanilla notes. the flavor was really good and as in the description the body is medium light which played perfectly with all the flavors. lots of bourbon, oak vanilla, roasted malts and chocolate. nicely balanced and delicious. sudomorph (1153) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2015
11/22/12 750ml bottle. Pours a near black with a thin, tan head. Aroma has great notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, slight dark fruits, coffee, licorice, molasses, and peanut shells. Taste is balanced with awesome notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, and a lingering, slightly smoky ending. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a bone dry finish. Overall a great beer. Smooth roast, coffee, slight dark fruits, and a long finish. katrinaez (1921) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Aroma has smoked almond and flowers. Odd, but true. Taste is too bitter, the Porter is missing a little balance in itself for the barrel aging and flavor. The mouth feel had a smoking burnt residual thing going on. A little claggy. Half of me loves this and half of me wants to pitch it because of the oddities going on. Whatever these are aged in are burned chicory and oak. Bottle. mike67 (1196) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2015

Almost black beer with brown hues and a medium, brown head. Strong aromas of cocoa and some booze. Tastes of roasted coffee, sweet dark chocolate, molasses, and hints of bourbon-like flavoring. Earthy and chewy mouth feel. Finish is of bitter cocoa. A bit smoky too. Very tasty and surprisingly easy to drink. Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2015
