Beer #3 in mine and areich6's Fat Tuesday tasting
Thanks to Axic10 for the extra!
A- Pours a dark cola brown with a miniscule tan head that dissipates quickly into a ring around the meniscus
S- Lots of smooth bourbon on the scent but not a whole lot else.
T- Oh boy... This is good. Lots of bourbon (more bourbon flavor than you'd expect for a 9% abv). This tastes like a porter version of Central Waters BBS which means it's in good company
M- Quite light on the palate could benefit from some thickness but no one said this was a stout
O- This is awesome! I am very greatful to Axic10 for allowing me to try more bourbon barrel aged beers as they are my favorite!

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.
