3.95/5 rDev +2.6%
Pours jet black with a tan foam head and splashy lace. Alcohol tears.
Charred malt nose, moderate strength, some black strap molasses.
Big charred malt up front, with scorched coffee and bitter chocolate. An immediate sour note, then alcohol, then bitter dark malt at the end. You get the oak, which is great considering the strength of the other flavors.
Fuller bodied, tongue coating.
Very nice, with a good punch of intensity.

I poured the beer from a 12 oz bottle with red wax on the cap quite quickly into a pint glass and the head still remained considerably small. I would say this beer does a great job of hiding the 12% alcohol content. The beer is very drinkable and I drank it relatively fast while typing this review. The bourbon taste is present, but not overwhelming. There are notes of chocolate that make the after taste feel comfortable and ready for the next sip.

this was just ok for me. not alot of barrel aged experience, the only porter i can compare this to is williamsburg bourbon barrel, and that was alot better, as in one of my favorite beers last year.
black, good head, pretty beer. smells and tastes chocolate, vanilla, some bourbon. smooth and easy drinking considering 12% abv, certainly hides the alcohol well.
reasonable price but will not be a repeat purchase. maybe this one is too refined, i really enjoy the killer booziness of williamsburg's version, which i did not get here.
