First bottle release from Boston's Trillium Brewing aged for I believe 3 months in Bully Boy Whiskey Casks. Very exciting to have such amazingly crafted beers being made locally.

As a standard Porter I will say that Pot & Kettle hits the nail on the head. A brilliant smooth and light mouthfeel opens the experience of subtle roasted characteristics, dark cocoa, rich malt undertones, and a slight creaminess in the nose.

Aging this in the whiskey barrels has softened the beer and given a wonderful oaky, woody, boozy, and vanilla taste. It makes me yearn to crawl up next to a fire and dry my snow soaked boots. Hints of deep dark fruit become present as well: think sticky plums. Slightly sweet bread pudding like characteristics are also at play.

Carbonation was low but still present making this one dense and beautiful. I enjoyed this very much and would easily suggest seeking it out if possible.
