Aged in Woodford Reserve barrels for 8 months, our deliciously roast chocolatey Eugene Porter now packs a punch.

A - Black beer that browns and reds on the edges. Has a nice ruby glint in the light. Half a finger of off-white head head that left nothing on the sides.

S - Chocolate and some nice bourbon. Touch of oak and hint of alcohol. Smells very nice and inviting.

T - Unfortunatly the taste does not live up to the nose. Not sure if the base beer is not strong enough or that it sat in the barrel for too long, but the alcohol is too sharp for the time being. Some of the chocolate and roast comes through but you have to look for it past the hotness of alcohol.

M - Sitting in the barrels made it a little thin, by its a fairly minor complaint. Carbonation okay.

O - Not a bad beer, but I had higher expectations. Could be a lot better if it sits for a while.
