Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Cycle pint glass.

A: Pours a murky brown color with a thin tan head fades that fades quickly. Low amounts of visible carbonation. This isn't very pretty.

S: Wow! Whiskey mostly overpowers anything else that might be here. There's some barrel oak with a touch of vanilla, roasted malts and a bit of dark fruit - but mostly whiskey.

T: Whiskey and whiskey, as the nose suggests. Some barrel oak tannins, vanilla, roasted malts, and a touch of raisin character. Whiskey and sweet maltiness in the hang.

M: Thin, weak body with low carbonation sensation. It's interesting - this doesn't carry much alcohol heat, despite everything the nose and flavors suggested.

O: Somehow they managed to infuse huge whiskey flavor without much barrel or alcoholic heat. While that may sound interesting, it served only to cover up what I suspect was a sub-par porter as a base beer. Or, at least, it didn't have the big flavors required to stand up to the massive amount of barrel-aging they put it through. However, the lack of mouthfeel was the biggest drawback to me - thin and nearly watery, not like a good porter should be. Whether the base beer had much to offer in the way of flavors in its own right, I suspect I will never know. Not truly offensive, but feel free to skip this one without any fear of missing out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear mahogany capped by a rather modest head that fades rapidly though it leaves a few dots behind

Smell: Caramel, Bourbon, oak and vanilla

Taste: Caramel and vanilla flavors, up front, with the Bourbon and oak elements integrating in the middle; nicely balanced in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Why the brewery insists on calling this a Porter is beyond me as the base beer is somewhere between an Amber and an Old Ale and is nothing like a Porter; that beef aside, unlike so many others, my bottle was not infected and the beer drinks very nicely; clearly there is a solid Bourbon character but it is complementary without being overwhelming

Thanks, beerbeerbeerbeer, for going above and beyond to give me the opportunity
