Stopped by Crooked Stave's brewpub for the first time today to check out their on site selection.

Quick review from the small amount of notes I took.

A&S: the aroma was very similar to a quad. Dark fruits, touches of smokiness. Beer was a medium brown translucent color. Head had lots of retention (even without considering it is almost 10% alcohol) and was light brown colored

T&M: Very intense sourly tones. Finish was bitter and clean. Probably would have paired well with cheese. Surprisingly not a whole lot of any bourbon in the taste. Kinda on the acidic side. Body was on the light side of medium and the carbonation was on the high side of medium.

Overall: From the description of this style, this beer seems a bit different. The beer was on the pricey side (5 bucks for I think 5 oz!)

"Baltic (ish) porter aged in bourbon barrels"
Poured from tap into cs snifter tulip at the brewery. Pours a deep rich black brown with thin tanish head. Superb wild brett aromas, malty coffee and bourbon...wow. taste is great coffee and bourbon, roasted malts, sweet dried fruit and of course wild brett. Just fantastic. Its so smooth and just so much flavor and complexity. One of the most unique porters ive ever had. These guys are really doing some amazing things with beer.

Bottle from the Cellar Reserve. Thanks to Bill for the assist. Served in Crooked Stave stemware.

Pours dark brown with a quickly-diminishing tan head that quickly fades to a thin collar and few swirls for a cap. The nose is more spirit heavy than the other two variants of the base. Bourbon presence is fairly heavy with some oak and light chocolate in the background. Vanilla as well. As it warms, there is a light dark fruit character along with a bit of roast.

The flavor is pretty barrel heavy as well, though it is more oak coming to the frot with some tannin. Bourbon is in the background along with slight roast, and just a bit of underlying acidity.

Medium body and fairly dry. Carbonation is a bit low, but appropriate for the style. Tannin through the finish.

My least favorite of the series, but still a nice beer stemming from a solid concept.
