Shared from friends at a local pub.

The color is that of most BA stouts or porters. Dark with a thin tan lacing.

The smell is that of bourbon. Vanilla with a tad bit of oak and a tiny bit of maltiness.

Taste is kind of thin. The bourbon is not over the top, but my problem is that the porter didn't come through to much.

Mouthfeel is thin too. Maybe I'm just used to a big imperial stout for my barrel aged beers. Not much alcohol astringency, which is great.

The booze is present, but not over the top making it fairly easy to drink, I just would've liked more of the base beer showing up.

Thanks for sharing this one FosterJM!

Dark brown without any clarity. Brown and khaki head, though thin, leaves the glass messy and sticky.

Wonderful, rich, and inviting aroma consisting of bourbon, oak, roasted malt, vanilla sweetness, and some chocolate and coffee. A complete aroma if I ever smelled one, without being over the top or too powerful with bourbon and alcohol sting. Subtle, yet rich and complex.

A fine tasting beer with a mellow bourbon and vanilla accent throughout, though the base beer still shines through: a rich, chocolatey, somewhat smoky porter.

Medium mouthfeel. A tad thicker and luscious would have put this beer in to the upper echelon.

Smooth drinking, though full and rich, subtle yet delicious--really a standout. This is without a doubt my favorite beer from Hangar 24!

Wonderful rich looking pour. A deep, dark brown color with a ton of rich tan lacing throughout the glass. Competely opaque with no light shing through and the two inch head of chocolate on top only settled down gradually by the end of the session.

The aroma was to die for. Rich notes of whiskey and campfire aromas mixed seemlessly into a roasted malt and light coffee like smell. The flavor though was simply superb. Touches of oak and roasted caramel mixing with lots of peat and whiskey barrle goodness. So rich and full, even as it warmed it was second to none in the smoked flavor. This was easily the best smoked beer I have ever had. Such a rich mix of barrel flavors and the whiskey just presented itself in the perfect mixture. Full bodied with wonderful carbonation and the alcohol was no where near too strong, in facvt it came off just right.

The only downfall for this beer/ I had a better one over at the IEBC in riverside an hour before this.

Color is average- exactly what you would expect.

Smell- had some bourbon character, but not much (which I actually enjoyed).

Taste- ??? Not impressive... below average compared to other beers out there of the same style. Good Vanilla and prune notes though, but did not maintain any porter flavors.

Mouth feel- Thin...I wonder if they just added sugar to get the SG up.

Overall...Mediocre at best. I was told that their brewer got a high score on his brewers test... Doesn't show.
