650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Almost black. Transparent. Nice khaki head. Wispy.

Smell - Lots of bourbon. Chocolatey. Rich vanilla and caramel. A little bit of roast but not much.

Taste - Sharp whiskey. Vanilla. Chocolate comes out better than the whiskey version. A little bit of roast.

Mouthfeel - This seems to be a bit fuller than the whiskey version. Boozy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The bourbon barrel works better than the whiskey barrel.

Review from 9/2010 notes. Poured into a Seattle Beer week pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black in the glass. Thin light brown head that dissipates slowly into a ring around the glass, slippery lacing. Aroma of bourbon and toasted malt. Flavor of dark malt, oak, bourbon with vanilla developing in the middle, finishes with a dry slightly astringent dark malt flavor. Medium bodied. Flavors are right for a bourbon barrel aged porter, but needs a bit more support in the malt and more toasted malt flavor. The bourbon overwhelms the basic porter in this one. Enjoyable enough, but needs more flavor depth.
