Thanks to canadianghetto for bringing this up from houston growler style.
The carbonation was little low on this, maybe due to the fact it was a growler.
The color is dark, not as a ris but definitely an imerial porter. dark with brownish notes.
THe smell was woody, bourbon, sweetness.
The motuhfell was thinner than I expected, but had a nice heat presence from the burbon.
THe taste was very similar to older viscosity with out the mega burbon overload OV has. It was a nice roasty, toffee, flavor with burbon backing it up. not over done.
Overall this is a descent beer for a young brewery whom continues to gain popularity.
Glad I got to try this one.

On tap at the Big Hops Growler Station in San Antonio during a Karbach tap takeover.
Excellent appearance with an exceptionally creamy and durable tan head.
Excellent use of barrel aging: the whisky and wood are prominent but do not bury the fine porter base. Near perfect bitter/sweet balance. Very smooth fulll body with spot on carbonation.
O: highly recommended.

The flavor on this beer has a frontal assault of vanilla, bourbon, roasted malt, and chocolate. However, the mid palate drops off quickly into a huge hop presence. Instead of an expected sweet chocolate and vanilla on the back, there's a hop flavor of earthy and herbal. It hits the palate aggressively and is something that does not occur in other barrel aged brews.
In the end, quite disappointing from what I expected.
