This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Ushering in the cooler days of autumn, Highpoint is aged in bourbon barrels for six months with cocoa, cinnamon and a touch of cloves. The result is a roasted caramel and molasses nose with a rich brown head.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter at cellar temperature:
A -A medium brown, slightly cloudy pour. The head was finger tall and long lasting leaving a nice lacing.
S - Smells of bourbon, chocolate and vanilla. Very nice.
T - Creamy chocolate taste with oak and bourbon. The finish/aftertaste is somewhat bitter.
F - Medium viscosity with an average amount of carbonation.
O - An interesting porter. Were the finish better it would have a higher score and might want another. As it is, it's worth trying.

Not quite perfect, but dang close. Great body, complex flavor, enormous intensity. This one will lay down nicely too.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours pitch black with only a tiny ring around the edge of the glass and no visible carbonation. Aroma of bourbon and dark toasted malt. Flavor a nice balance of bourbon, toasted malt, chocolate and vanilla, finishes with bourbon, dark malt, vanilla and light hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation in the taste. A smooth, bourbon forward porter. Flavors are well integrated well melded. Body a little lighter than I expected from the aroma, color and looks, but still a flavorful and well made barrel aged porter. Well done.

A: Poured a deep brown with good carbonation presenting a tannish colored cap. Head retention was pretty good as it resedes some light curtains of lacing and a small rings sticks to the edges of the glass

S: Smooth cocoa, roasted malts, moderate bourbon and a hint of cinnamon

T: Initial taste was of smooth rich chocolate/cocoa with a moderate bourbon barrel presence. This beers taste is dominated by a smooth chocolate goodness with a healthy roast, light coffee. There is a moderate char and bitterness on the finish with more cocoa and caramel.

M: On the full bodied side, impressive, creamy and decadent. Well cabronated.

O: Great job. The balance of the barrel with base beer was right on IMO. However, I was looking for a little more of the cinnamon and clove they refered to in their description.
