Poured from a 22oz bomber into a snifter. Like their other barrel aged beers, this comes in one of those boxes with the wood grain.

A - Very minimal head, I had to pour hard and got about one finger of pretty nice light brown foam. The beer itself looks dark brown, but you can see through it - not viscous at all.

S - Very faint bourbon smell, and maybe a little chocolate. But nothing is overpowering or stands out too much

T - Wow... Very smooth bourbon upfront, with a creamy back just like the regular Eugene porter. This is nice. It's easy to keep sipping...

M - The mouthfeel is medium bodied, not sticky or cloying at all. Very smooth.

O - I was pretty impressed by this beer. The bourbon flavor is very present, but smooth and definitely welcomed. Recommended.
