A - Dark chocolate brown with a small milk chocolate head that settled to foam

S - Dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and lots of butterscotch from the pappy barrel

T - Roasted chocolate and bitter coffee with light butterscotch. Slight alcoholic booze and oak near the finish. The base beer doesn't seem to stand up to the barrel well which gives it an astringent and boozy bite

M - Medium body with a roasted presence. Slight oak tingle near the finish to it

O - Solid porter but the beer just can't fully stand up to the barrel. It smells great but there is just too much booze and bite in the flavor
