bottle picked up when i was in town a few months ago. enjoyed from a highland snifter.

brew opened with a big pop...no geyser, but the beer poured with an equal amount of head as it did beer. head way grey cream colored and creamy in texture. smell is fairly bourbon heavy with a creamy char. taste is burnt vanilla. booze soaked chocolate. very bourbon dominated. some toffee and caramel. boozy for just 6%. a bit over carbed for me. overall, as advertised...a barrel aged version of people's porter, which i found to be too burnt. the burnt seems to really amplify the barrel. good...not great.

A: Pours a nice dark brown with a ridiculously huge and fluffy light brown head. Head fades at a decent rate with a big island of foam behind. Thin, super fluffy chunks of lacing hang around.

S: Nice bourbon with burnt sugar, sticky caramel, brown sugar, toffee and charred oak. A little bit of roasted malt but not much, mainly some nice sweet bourbon.

T: More bourbon. Quite sweet. Burnt sugars and caramel are most prominent. A little toffee. Mild, mellow roasted malt melds in with a little bit of chocolate and char. Sweetness runs out of the finish, resulting in some toffee and acrid charred barrels. Drying oaky finish with hints of vanilla and char.

M: Carbonation is a little high, leaving this one feeling just a little too airy. Surprisingly not bad body for only 6% and high carb though.

O: This was surprisingly nice. I figured with only a 6% ABV base beer that the bourbon would completely overpower. It is still quite strong but melds nicely. Mellow flavors, not overly sharp and no real alcohol despite the hefty bourbon.
