1714th Review on BA
Bottle to Hangar 24 taster
Split with the Beer Geek Radio Guys.
App- This was a very dark brown with a dark center and a nice puffy head on it. Filled up the taster glass. Semi decent cling, but looked really nice in the glass. A good looking little taster glass.
Smell- I get the porter notes, but there is a raisiny off flavor behind this one. The aromas are a bit sweet with some of the prickly whiskey coming up to great you. Doesnt smell all that impressive really.
Taste- This just didnt go well for me. The porter notes are a bit thin and what I could day as the raisins from the aroma come in as well. The beer is just a bit better than average and dont do all that much for me.
Mouth- A bit of a lighter medium body with a lighter carbonation. Fairly bubbly and a little creamy. Residual oaky and raisin flavors.
Drink- Just kinda above average for me. Wouldnt say meh. But just okay. Not my favorite profile.

Received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a solid black with a good sized long lasting khaki head. Smells of chocolate and caramel with bits of dark pitted fruit, vanilla, oak, and bits of wood and bourbon. Smooth sweet chocolate with bits of dark fruit drizzled with vanilla and bourbon. The finish leaves a bit of bitter chocolate and roast with smokey ash on the palette that lingers long after each sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet creamy and syrupy mouthfeel. Wow I really liked this one!
