Appearance - 4/5
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with hints of red along the edges of the glass. About one to two fingers of dark-tan head.

Smell - 3.65/5
Vanilla, alcohol, oak, bourbon. The aroma is slightly sweet.

Taste - 4.2/5
Vanilla, oak, bourbon. Fairly sweet. Tastes similar to Dragon's milk except much less roasty, and more alcoholic flavor. I think I prefer Dragon's Milk.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Smooth, carbonation is fairly light. Medium bodied.

Overall - 4/5
This was a fairly good Oak-bourbon-barrel-aged beer. However not my favorite. I would prefer Dragon's Milk or Backwoods Bastard any day. Also, definitely not worth the $9 I paid for a 12oz bottle.

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%

Really good BA Porter, very smooth and extremely easy to drink at 12% Was also extremely pricey which will keep me from giving it a ringing endorsement, however price aside, it was a very good BA ale worth a try. No huge bourbon tones, just lots of rich dark chocolate flavors. Really not as complex as I would hoped~
