Extremely subtle nose, the head has a richer color than the body, taste is very smooth akin to the porter style, not overwhelming at all but inviting; overall, pretty good but I fear the slight malty nature may be hindered by the bourbon barrel aging process.

Such low reviews of this beer. Just ran a pint night at the bar I buy for and this was one I decided to pick up. Man oh man, I'm glad I did. The BA comes through just perfect on the nose, and the flavors of the porter mix perfectly with it. I actually prefer this over the BA Stout. The People's Porter by itself is a solid beer, but they have blended the Bourbon Barrel into this just perfectly. It's not the best BA Porter out there, but to me, it's a 4 for sure.

The most impressive and lasting head I have ever seen on a beer. Attractive dark brown almost black. Smell is great and full of bourbon but not very strong. Tastes of caramel, butterscotch, dark chocolate. Excellent of you like bourbon aged bears but think the bourbon aged imperial stouts are a little too strong and overpowering for your taste buds at the moment.
