By far the best porter I've ever tried.
It really doesn't get any better than this.
The fact that I tried this fresh out of the keg a few miles from Shawnee may have helped the taste and freshness.
This porter has magnificent coloring and head. We drank it in 10 ounce glasses.
Smell was inviting but not sour or alcoholic laden in any way.
Taste was magnificent. Perfectly balanced, not too strong. Shawnee has a very specific yeast taste to all of their products, but it was tame in this one, perhaps because of the barrel aging process.
I would recommend anyone who is a fan of lighter stouts or porters to check this out, preferably on draft.
My friend who is a huge fan of stouts tried this once and was hooked. He said it was the best beer he'd ever tried in his entire life.

Bourbon Barrel Porter pours a black color with a creamy white head. There is a sweet aroma with vanilla and bourbon notes. The taste has some vanilla and bourbon flavors, but overall has a taste like medicine. Flavors are present but are offensive. Overall it tastes like medicine.

The tap list says 10.5 abv....
A - Darkest brown, nearly black body with a quarter inch latte like cap of head that lasts for some time.
S - Very strong vanilla aroma, almost a vanilla icing. Slightest but of malty ness Nd roast, maybe the faintest bourbon.
T - Vanilla cream icing that you put on a cake for sure. There's a ending bite of bourbon and slight heat you'd expect from it. But the vanilla icing is delicious. The bourbon is actually balancing the sweetness.
M - Medium, smooth bodied porter with mid to low carbonation. Could be a little fuller in the body that would make this richer, but it drinks well as is.
O - A very tasty, balanced porter. The bourbon provides more of a balancing act than adding the bourbon flavor we all know and love. I'm curious to know if this was a vanilla porter or what barrels they used.

On tap (nitro) at Capone's Restaurant. Kudos for going out and getting this kind on thing.Decent enough nitro beer, big and creamy leaving a lace sheet. Slight coffee aroma. Dark brown. Decent drinkability. The barrel may have rounded out the flavour even more than the nitro. Any bourbon was hidden. Let me try this in the bottle.
