4.22/5 rDev +1.7%
On tap at the Common Table.
The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is very heavy on the oak with some bourbon and vanilla notes. There is no doubt that this is a barrel-aged beer.
The flavor is more of the same with a few additions. I get a little roasted malt and chocolate, but once again there is a ton of flavor imparted from the barrel aging. I get a lot of vanilla, maple, oak and some cinnamon. A very tasty mix of flavors.
Medium mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation.

On tap at Rudyard's in Houston, TX
A: Pours a dark brown, nearly opaque color. At first a two finger tan head rises, and recedes in a minute. Nice lace is left behind.
S: Up front is vanilla, light brown sugar, and some wood. Big chocolate aromas with some dark fruits of cherries and plums.
T: Vanilla, wood, chocolate, some dark fruits all intermingle. Some alcohol heat as well, though very miner. Very nice.
M/D: A medium to full body with nice carbonation. Very smooth, but maybe just a bit on the watery side. So easy to drink. Everything is so well incorporated. This is a treat to drink.
This is well done with excellent balance. I love it, and something I would highly recommend. Another great barrel aged offering from Real Ale.

Had this last night on tap. I have never been disappointed by Real Ale and while I still liked this one it did not stand out to me. It had a decent tan head that did fade quickly and left only a little lace. It was a slightly cloudy brown color but still let a little light through. Light hop flavor and aroma. It did have a nice sweet malt aroma and the taste reflected that with a sweet raisiny flavor that I think comes from the Special B malt. There was also some subtle brown sugar flavor. The mouthfeel was lighter than expected for a porter which I expect was from using brown sugar in the recipe. The brown sugar also seems to have been used to bump the ABV up to 7%. Overall a good beer very drinkable and not overly complicated.

Poured into a taster at RealTail II. I'm not sure if this is the same beer they had at their anniversary party or not.
Appearance: Dark brown with reddish hues with a thin head that quickly dissipates into nothing.
Aroma: Woody notes with vanilla, chocolate, whiskey and alcohol.
Taste: Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak, and alcohol. It's pretty boozy but the oak is a little more restrained then it was for their BA shade grown coffee porter.
Mouthfeel: Low carbonation and medium body with a noticeable alcoholic finish.
Overall: A good beer, but I would prefer if the barrel and whiskey was not so straight forward, let a little more of the beer come through.
