1768th Review on BA
Bottle to 20oz Nonic
Thanks to Jlindros and Rudzud
App- Out of the bottle, this poured like a stout to me. Jet black with a fluffy brown head that was about 2 fingers and took a while to recede. Was nice to see a thicker pouring porter as well. Nice cling down the glass.
Smell- This was a chocolate bar in a glass. The porter changed into something really nice in the aromatics with the addition of the barrel. More alive and awake without being overly roasted and malty forward.
Taste- I really enjoyed this porter. The barrel was subtle but really created a different flavor to a normally, little bitter and roasty style. Smoother, vanilla, chocolate and sweet. The flavors were balanced and a little bit sweet, but not cloying either.
Mouth- A good full medium body with a solid medium bubbly carbonation. The residual flavors were chocolate and vanilla. A good bit of vanilla and remains as well.
Drink- A very good barrel aged porter. I enjoyed the flavors. Jacks Abby does it again.

Bottle poured into glass stein
Deep black, pours a taupe foam lid. Settles to a layer of taupe
Aroma of sweet malt, bourbon, brown sugar, tobacco, deep rich figs. Smells great.
Incredibly smooth, sweet on the front of the tongue. Bourbon, caramel, sweet malts. Feel the alcohol on the back of the tongue, still smooth and not a sharp bite. Gentle carbonation but a full mouthfeel because of the alcohol. At 10% abv! this is a one beer at a time! not a session beer.
Great beer, silky smooth, rich, flavorful , enjoyable and repeatable.
