Might be one of the best beers in the world. Had this at the Raleigh Rare and Vintage 2012 tasting. Best of Show in my opinion.

I wish they would bottle this so I can have some in the basement. The beer is silky smooth and is pitch black with chocolate and toffee notes. The bourbon burn is minimal and tastes great.

I had this on tap at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The beer is dark brown colored with a thin tan foam and an aroma of sweet malts with a touch of whiskey. The smell was almost perfect to me, just what I wanted it to be. It was similar to Okocim but stronger and with a bourbon or whiskey note. The taste was the same, so rich with sweetness and balanced with bourbon. This is probably the best Baltic Porter I've had, and actually I would prefer this to many barrel aged stouts. Get it if you see it.

I had this on-tap at Churchkey during the Craft Beer Conference 2013.

A: Poured about as black as night but without much head to speak of (unlike it's non barrel-aged counterpart). However, in the head's place was a liquid so thick that even oil rig workers will cower in fear.

S: Inside the nutty bourbon-ness, there was a delectable licorice, chocolate cake batter smell that just hit all the right notes.

T: SO much flavor here. Don't let my descriptor of licorice scare you licorice haters out there, this was more like dark chocolate Twizzlers with fudge buttercream frosting, almonds, and bourbon. Shall I continue?

M: This was sludge for sure, just like it should be, with low carbonation and all. The glass came out fairly clean, but my palate was wrecked... in a good way.

O: I drank my taster with the greatest of ease and later that night, one of my friends got distracted and left our table. Yep... I drank the rest of his too. One of the highlights of the conference!

4.45/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with the liquid colored a pretty dark brown with ruby highlights; the head was not overly large but it did leave the occasional strand behind

Smell: Dark fruit (prune, primarily) and Bourbon, with some chocolate underneath

Taste: The dark fruit flavors (prune and date) appear first, followed by the Bourbon barrel and chocolate flavors; after the swallow, the Bourbon lingers in the aftertaste, bringing with it some vanilla elements

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low carbonation

Overall: Duck-Rabbit has a way with its limited edition beers and this one is no exception

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!
