perhaps moderately less insane than the rye barrel aged edition, which blew my mind right away. this might be just a little more in line with all the other bourbon stuff out there, but to me it is obvious that its one of the best dark beers in the world, with more smoke than I remember from the other one in the finish, and a whole lot of sweet bourbon character. also cool because its a porter not a stout, and a warmer ale fermentation gives it a unique character. huge body, lots of oak, and a certain drinkability to it for a beer that's 14% abv. super rich too, but there is a dry element as well, its a number of traditional contradictions that seem to resolve themselves in one beer. dark chocolate and tobacco and a ton of smoke as it finishes, meaty and almost like jerky in some ways. colossal body and a long finish, but it isn't sweet. I think the spice of the rye whiskey barrel made it next level, but I like the bourbon one almost just as well because it illustrates how good and special the base beer is, and its insane. the bruery can do no wrong by me, so this is flawless really. I want to cellar one.
