Had on tap at the Revolution tap room. Served in a snifter.

A: Pours a dark black color with dark brown highlights. A tan head forms on the pour and recedes to thin ring. Some splotches of lace are left down the glass.

S: Light bourbon, some oak and chocolate. Roasted malts with mix with a caramel sweetness.

T: Same as the nose, but very smooth. The bourbon mixes with a decadent chocolate and some milk chocolate sweetness. Roasted malts with some oak barrel and subtle vanilla.

M: Medium bodied with a medium low carbonation. Velvety and smooth.

O: Very good and a nice smooth barrel compliment to the already delicious Eugene porter.

Serving type: on-tap

3.74/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Dark cola brown, letting considerable light pass at the edges. A half inch of tan head after the pour that dissipates without leaving a trace.

Nice bourbon aroma. Woodford is known for it's high rye content in the mash bill and those earthy and spicy aromas poke through. Lots of soy and anise, chocolate to a lesser extent.

The barrels don't pop as much in the taste. Woody, soy, blackstrap molasses.

Mouthfeel is thin and low carbonation is low.

A decent beer, but doesn't hold up against other barrel agers. Mouthfeel was weak. For the price tag, pass.
