Thanks to VoodooImpStout for sharing this one at drewone's tasting.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, bourbon, and band-aid like aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty 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 with a bourbon presence that is slightly better in the smell.

Poured from 22oz bomber into Globe glass. Thanks to Brita for bringing this back from Oregon.

A. Pours 2+ finger off white head. Color is all black. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S. Very good. Roasted malt, vanilla, milk chocolate, molasses, and some brown sugar and dark fruit in the way back. Some hop bitterness comes out. Really good smelling Barrel Aged Porter.

T. Roasted malt, a bit of coffee, vanilla, some oak, molasses. Pretty smooth tasting. Not much heat. Has some nice bourbon characteristics without being overdone. I can understand the classification of this beer as a Porter after drinking it. Get some of the dark fruit, and caramel flavors as it warms up.

M. Medium/full bodied. Medium carbonation. Finishes with some lingering sweetness.

O. Impressive. I am a sucker for vanilla flavored stouts that comes from barrel aging. This one is nicely done. Mouthfeel could be a bit more full.
