Pours to a deep, deep red-brown, almost black. Head is thin, off-white and leaves almost no lacing. The aroma is malty, with maybe a little corn-based sweetener as well. Definitely roasted malt flavor with bourbon barrel present too. Not what I'm used to in a bourbon barrel-aged brew. It's weaker than most barrel aged beers-I'm surprised to see it listed at 7% ABV. The body is thin, but with minimal carbonation it is not bad. I would call this a good session bourbon barrel aged porter (which may sound ridiculous to some, but try it.) For the price, potency and flavor...this was pretty good.

Not a big fan of MKE Brewing Co., but I was able to purchase this a single bottle so I figured I'd give it a try.

Roast on the nose, with a touch of sweetness.

On the palate, heavy roast char dominates. After sitting for awhile, a touch of dark fruit emerges.

The mouthfeel of this beer is off, it is light and almost fizzy. Makes me think I'm drinking a beer flavored soda.

Overall, not bad, but not good either. Much too thin, no barrel presence other than char, just not something I'd seek out again. The experience of truly enjoying a beer from MKE Brewing continues to elude me.

Pours very dark brown with a foamy tan head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of charcoal, bourbon, chocolate and anise.

The taste is charred without being too smoky. Chocolate, anise, dark earthy notes blend well, and has further depth with a touch of bourbon. Full-flavored, it hits full-bodied. Complex with a lager smoothness.

A wonderful example of the style with a nice touch of bourbon that adds to the complexity without being forward. Dangerously drinkable!
