Pulled from the back of my cellar, been aging since last spring, since the trip to Williamsburg.
Pours jet black with an thin tan head that leaves very little lacing.
Nose is pretty strong bourbon, some chocolate & roasted malts. Some smokiness comes through as is warms.
Taste is bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts and some woodiness an a faint hop bitterness. More chocolate and a little smokiness as it warms.
Mouthfeel is medium with light carbonation. ABV is well hidden here, can't believe this is 9 ABV
This is a nice bourbon aged porter, lots of flavor, nice body, worth picking up.

Love this one. Had it in the pay but must've not reviewed it? Enjoyedbfrom an alewerks snifter.
a - brew pours a silky black with a finger of creamy of white head. Spotty lacing.
s - nose is fantastic. Decadent booze soaked chocolate. Not very porter since any char is overtaken by the wood and rich chocolate. Roast and kind of stouty.
t - gorgeous and lush as the nise advertised, but even better. Really tasty and again the barrel takes the char and kicks it into stout territory. Chocolate is the star and the booze glazes happiness over the top.
m - mouth is the highlight here. So silky smooth. Lush from the wood hides any porter char but this one stays light and fluffy and not heavy like a stout.
o - overall, this beer is a highlight in a catalogue of many amazing beers from alewerks. Truly a brewery to keep an eye on. Very worth picking up and or trading for. You will not be disappointed in this beer unless you hate amazing beer. Fantastically done.
