Most of the dark barrel aged beers I've had have covered up the barrel's flavors. This beer is very barrely tasting. Some serious vinous oak going on in the nose. Tastes a little bit like brett and coffee, but they do a pretty darn good job of merging the two worlds. I enjoyed this one from start to fin.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.
A: Dark brown and nearly opaque. Forms a half-finger of tan head that fades quickly over average visible carbonation.
S: Acetic tart, a bit vinous, some toasted malts, and almost a savory tangy undertone. Interesting for sure.
T: Acetic tartness up front, ill-defined fruity character, and toasted malts for a beat. But then the flavors just fade away, ending a thin mineral water hardness and some residual tartness.
M: Obnoxiously thin body, carbonation sensation on the low side, and alcohol noticeable but doesn't detract.
O: Well, this smelled good. The flavors, though, were simple and bare - nothing offensive but not deep. But the mouthfeel was the biggest letdown - way too thin. Maybe not quite watery, but borderline. Not at all what I expect from a porter. It wasn't a drain pour or anything, but I won't be having another. Quite disappointing from this brewery.

375ml bottle into snifter.
A: Pours deep brown with a finger of fluffy light brown head. The head slowly faded into a fuzzy and lasting film, and thick streaks of lacing were left down the glass.
S: Predominately I get notes of roasted malt on the nose, with hints of lambic yeast, bubblegum, and vanilla.
T: My first impression is the flavor is very metallic. I get notes of roasted malt, mild chocolate, vanilla, and slight berry acidity. The lambic yeast adds an interesting fruitiness to the beer, and a very slight tartness as well. The finish is lightly sweet with a hint of spice as well, and the aftertaste is roasted with a touch of smoke and ash lingers long after the swallow. There’s a hint of sweet cherry juice in there as well.
M: Very fluffy carbonation that froths up on my palate. Medium body, fluffy and airy mouthfeel.
O: A very interesting beer, and I enjoyed it, but it’s probably something wouldn’t seek out again. The flavors of the porter are light and clean, and the lambic yeast adds an interesting complexity. Overall though, it’s pretty straight forward.
