The taste of this is fantastic. The bourbon is spot on, great sweetness from the honey but the lack of carbonation kills this. So thin. Tastes like a stout more than a porter but with a little restraint on the malt. Great overall but just needs some carbonation and body.

thanks to pjl44 for this bottle!
poured into a tulip glass.
bottle on date of 10/2013.
drank this side by side with Everett! 8oz pour of BoT and 8oz pour of Everett for comparision of base beer with the barrel aged verison and it adjuncts! Sounds like a fun beer experiment to me!
Appearance: black bodied beer with 1 finger of white head that drops down to a thin head on the beer.
Smell: A fairly mellow nose. Bourbon and honey sweetness. Nutty coffee notes. Oak barrel.
Taste: The beer starts of sweet and barrel forward with bourbon and honey. Milk chocolates. Mild nutty coffee. And the beer nears room temperature, molassess and hints of black licorice begin to emerge. Lingering honey, oak, and bourbon in the finish.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation. Super smooth and creamy mouthfeel. This beer drinks rediciously easily like its a 7% abv barrel aged porter! thats impressive.
Overall: You all are going to think that I am crazy, but i like regular Everett better that Birth of Tragedy. This even shocked me as I came to this conclusion... Great complexity and balance are found in this brew. i wish that a more roasty coffee was used in this beer, I think that would have made this beer even better. Its another great Hills Farmstead beer.
