wow! aroma takes me back to the Eclipse series..... lots of bourbon; sweet, sweet bourbon..... taste is the same- lots of bourbon, lots of flavor. very sweet. lots of alcohol burn although it isn't all that 'strong'.... when I poured it onto an already-half-filled glass it sizzled as if I were pouring acid onto it!! with an almost red hue to it, it appeared to 'eat away' at the head and fizzled until it was all gone.... amazing! thin enough to be very enjoyable; holds a taste expected of an 11% brew... very nice. reminds me of a thinner Merkin or DBA.

Fantastic porter in the first place but by aging it in a woodford barrel it really added a great sweetness to it. Great bourbon porter!
