4.14/5  rDev -7.2%

On tap at Secret Stash Bash; served in a small nonic.

A: The beer is a deep dark mahogany color, clear, with excellent, well-proportioned tan head that fades slowly.

The aroma has a very pronounced dark chocolate note, and more dark fruit than I recall being in the standard version. To some extent, the dark roasted malts were masked by the barrel aging.

T: The barrel aging is obvious, a little too obvious, in tasting. Thankfully, the medium and dark roasted malts do show through, and there are some appreciated dark fruit notes. Excellent finish and aftertaste. Lightly sweet.

M: Full bodied and very smooth, with excellent medium carbonation.

O: Rich and improved version of the very good Duck-Rabbit Baltic porter. Very satisfying.

Had during Brewvival 2012! Poured by Paul himself! Served from tap into a Brewvival sampler imperial pint. Poured a reddish black with a minimal brown head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, wood, sweet alcohol, and vanilla. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, wood, sweet alcohol, vanilla, and dark chocolate. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I went into this one expecting great things but was a little letdown if I'm honest. I'm not sure how long this brew stayed in the barrels, but the barrels completely dominated this one. So much so that it actually covered up a lot of the nice dark fruit character that I loved so much about the base beer. If you are a fan of the -bals, this is the beer for you. If you are not, you might still be okay, but just be warned they were strong in this one.

Enjoyed at the 3rd annual Black & Blue. Thanks brawleys!

A - black, thick with huge cinnamon head that left crazy, caked lacing while retaining a good, solid cap

S - ton of vanilla, toffee, brown sugar, graham crackers

T - flavors much like nose with some roasted malts and a bit dark fruit; the finish consists of sweet toffee and warming alcohol; fairly heavy on the Wells barrel

M - thick and chewy body; almost fluffy carbonation but not distracting; mild, sweet bourbon aftertaste

O - i had big expectations as this is one of my favorite beers, local or not. i was not disappointed. the barrel is very strong but the baltic porter base is pretty robust and has enough bones to support it. the Wells barrel is tasty and that helps.

DRB - please bottle some of this!(in 12oz bottles like Rabid Duck)

* I still feel like a noob, but I have learned a lot over the last one and half years and it has been a blast. Big thanks to my BA friends for mentoring me and sharing not only their knowledge, but their beer with me. It is all very much appreciated!

On tap at ACBF 6/1/2013 Solid black color. Aroma of chocolate covered cherries with a hint of coconut. Outstanding chocolate fruity flavor with hints of vanilla and sweet smooth bourbon. Thick body with a creamy silky mouthfeel. Incredible beer. Smooth complex and tasty.
