People's BBL Aged Porter,

From label: "People's Porter aged in 20 year old bourbon barrels."

Bottled: unk (presumably latest vintage/edition)

Pours black with a solid sheet of tan foam. Nose bursts out the gate sweet, vanilla, butterscotch, bourbon, more butterscotch and praline - really exquisite nose here for my impressions. Flavor carries some cocoa, graham, bits of coffee, oak and raisin. A well balanced and integrated brew. I'm happy with this for certain. Medium on thin bodied with a reserved carbonation - a little let down with the viscosity. Overall, a great brew. I'm consistently impressed with Foothill's ability to barrel age their brews. I do not believe their are too many breweries above their capacity to barrel age a beer, and I think it has to do with their choice in barrels, honestly. The barrels are always highlighted to complement the beer, not overwhelm or whisper into the beer.

Shared with Randy and Jason at the Parrothead in Shelby, OH.

Pour is dark brown, with a decent off white head. THe actual liquid is very carbonated, that was the first thing Randy noticed.

The smell is just as bitter as the non BA version. but then theres the alcohol. Its a smooth warm bourbon flavor that doesnt overpower the base beer. Im not sure they mix perfectly yet though.

Now the flavor was something else. The first thing I notice, is that the underlying beer hasnt lost anything. Its actually gained some bitter chocolate cocoa nibs flavors. There isnt much barrel flavors, its all just bourbon. Somehow they meld together nicely, I was just hoping the barrel aging would mellow out the overpowering bitterness.

A- Super dark brown with red tint around the edges. Tan, semi creamy, bubbly head. Pretty good lacing.
S- Dark chocolate, caramel, plums, and black cherry.
T- T is surprisingly light: over-ripened dark fruits over charred wood up front, followed by bready, cracker-like malts, cocoa and a hint of coffee. Dry, smokey, slightly sweet aftertaste. You would never guess it ever touched a bourbon barrel.
M- Medium light body. Good carbonation. Drying.
O- This was alright. I would take it if offered, but I doubt i would buy again. Bourbon was completely absent to me.

22oz bottle (2013 or 14) served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours dark brown and sits near black and opaque in the glass. Large frothy head is semi-durable and leaves a fairly full coat of lacing on the glass.

Appealing aroma features BBL, dark roasted grains, and dark fruits. Approaches 3.75

Flavor: BBL and fainter dark bread and a hint of vanilla. Too much bourbon flavor in the finish and aftertaste, but then others will find this attractive no doubt. Approaches 4

Drinks big despite the modest 5.8% ABV.

22 ounce bomber poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a black color with a half finger head and light lacing.

S: Slight aromas of vanilla, oak, and roasted malts but mainly just Bourbon.

T: The Bourbon flavor is much more subdued than the smell would lead you to believe. There's a beautiful balance of Bourbon, oak, roasted malts, vanilla, and dark chocolate.

M: Medium bodied with some carbonation.

O: This is another winner from Foothills. It's a little lighter than I would like, but it's very drinkable. I think sitting on it for a year would tone down the Bourbon a little which would be nice. I may do that with another bottle.

Thanks to Hopswagger for this one!
22oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku

A - Dark and cloudy, mahogany brown, 1 finger of tan bubbles sink into a thin collar.

S - Sweet whiskey malts, caramel, cocoa nibs, chocolate wafers, cherries, dates, molasses, grape candy,

T - Roasted chocolate malts, vanilla, a good dose of bitterness, charred caramel, chicory, whiskey blends in nicely and is lighter in the middle before really showing up on the finish. The finish is dry with notes of tobacco, roasted malts, and whiskey.

M - Aggressive carbonation bites the tongue, medium weight, dry finish.

Whiskey, chocolate, and caramel with aggressive carbonation and some bite from the hops make a nice robust porter. The roast character is strong especially combined with the carbonation. This would go good with cigar.

Many, many thanks to kkipple for this one!

Bourbon Barrel-aged People’s Porter pours a dark chocolate fudge color. It’s nearly opaque. Backlighting reveals some burgundy highlights at the outer edges. Looks good. A soft, tan collection of bubbles gathers on the surface. It doesn’t rise far above that though, and it dissipates quickly. Lacing was light and spotty as it trailed down the glass.

The nose is pretty good. It’s a little weak and would benefit from a bump in strength. It starts out with a nice dose of chocolate and cocoa. Roasted malts are also noted. Coffee is in the mix and smells nice. Bourbon has a moderate presence. It’s not overwhelming by any stretch. I like that. It complements the other elements nicely. Alcohol is a little noticeable, but doesn’t seem all that strong. Given its lighter abv, that’s not a big shock.

The flavor is good. I like it. The mix of chocolate and roasted malts makes for a nice base. The chocolate flavors are bittersweet and cocoa-esque. Coffee seems a little more pronounced in flavor. I can handle that. Bourbon has a moderate presence, but adds a lot in terms of depth and character. It blends extremely well with the other flavors. Oak and vanilla are noted, but are secondary. Alcohol is there, but doesn’t come through that strong. At 6%, it’s not scary. Finishes chocolaty with a touch of coffee and bourbon. Good stuff!

The body is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation seems light and soft, but it feels too thin. Needs more body to attain a smooth feel. Having said that, it is one tasty, easy drinking barrel-aged porter. Its size goes a long way in that department.

Foothills has another winner with Bourbon Barrel-aged People’s Porter. It could use a little more body, but that’s about it. Very solid all-around otherwise. I’m really impressed that Foothills pulled off such a tasty barrel-aged beer at 6% abv. Don’t run across that very often. Worth seeking out. Thanks, Dan!

draft, Jack of the Wood, Asheville NC

A: very nice black color with a small head but good lacing

S: smells just like bourbon

T: intriguing mix at first tastes like Bourbon then both a smokey and chocolate flavor come out very little hop or malt flavor remains

M: nice but nothing special in the mouth feel

O: I'd avoid this if I was looking for a "beer" as the bourbon, smoke, chocolate flavor removes too much to taste like a normal porter, that ought to retain some malt flavor, but very nice if you like bourbon or scotch.

Had this on draft way back in February at the Mellow Mushroom in Charleston. Finally found my notes!

First off, thanks to Scott and the crew at Foothills for driving all over tarnation to bring thirsty beer geeks the good stuff. We appreciate it!

So, Foothills People's Porter aged in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. Let's get to it.

A. Same as normal People's Porter, but what'd ya expect? Nice brown porter. Dense head, doesn't last too long, leaves some lace.

S. Warming up, there's a fine whiskey nose that maybe overpowers the toothsome roast malts and coffee / chocolate mix. Still pretty basic and subdued overall.

T. Just as advertised, ma'am. Creamy, smooth malt flavors of the base porter with a shot of ultra smooth bourbon flavor that really is a bit overpowering. This beer is fresh from the barrel (in Feb.) and shows. The base porter is stellar, as usual, but I'm not sure the hefty bourbon barrel complements it.

M / D. Creamy, clean, smoooove bourbon notes linger. Warming. Rather drinkable if you like bourbon, which I do.

Ultimately the BA version of People's Porter is a bit of a one-trick horse. There is certainly delicious bourbon to be had here, but it comes at the price of blowing away a great beer. Worth a shot, but I preferred the unadulterated version more.

Bomber at a very reasonable $5.

Looks great - pitch black with pretty heavy head and it sticks to the side of the glass. Smell is pretty subdued but you can pick up the bourbon scent right when you open it and some vanilla. The taste is chocolate and a roasted flavor, a little woody, then the bourbon comes through and there is a bitterness on the end of it. It's very thin and more carbonated than expected. It doesn't seem to hold up to the bourbon flavor as well as some of the heavier stouts.
Enjoyed this, but I feel like some of the barrel aging might be lost on a thin beer like this compared to many stouts, barleywines, or DIPAs.

A- pours dark brown with a small tan creamy head, decent retention and minimal lacing

S- grainy malt with a touch of chocolate, barrel juice with some woodsy vanilla notes, a bit subdued other then the barrel aromas

T- The base porter is pretty mild so the bourbon notes take center stage, this works for me because I love bourbon-forward beers, however this could be offsetting to some. Oaky flavors with vanilla notes and barrel juice arrive mid-palate. Notes of prune and chocolate on the finish, slightly dry with more barrel flavor

M- light-medium body with medium carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light for a barrel aged beer, but about on oar for a porter

O- this one was more bourbon forward that I expected, which I liked. However it was sip,y because the base beer didn't have enough backbone to balance out the bourbon. If you like bourbon forward beers, this is a nice selection and nearly sessionable which is unheard of for barrel aged beers

Picked this up awhile ago. No date on the bottle.

Pretty black with a slender, creamy ring of a head for most of the glass. Very woody nose...bourbon, light cherry and fruity esters, bitter chocolate, coconut. As nice as that sounds, it is fairly sharp which doesn't allow me to really stick my nose in and enjoy it. Smooth chocolaty malt flavor with some tartness leading to oaky, more vanilla bean qualities and finishing sweet and nutty. Much deeper and better integrated than the aroma. Creamy and slick with some dryness after the swallow. I imagine I'll grab another bottle of this some day.

Morimoto again! Thanks man. Poured at cellar temp into a Hill Farmstead tulip. 2011 bottle?

A - Pour is brownish-black with a thick, tan head. By thick, I mean 2". Head eventually goes down and keeps some very nice lacing.

S - TONS of woody bourbon, little chocolate in the end. There is almost an acetone present. It smells like I had a porter, and then I poured a couple ounces of bourbon into it. The porter aroma is nearly gone. Good thing I like bourbon.

T - Woody bourbon with a splash of chocolate, then some vanilla, then more oak on the finish. Some roasted malts are to be found in the background. Once the palate is coated, a lot more of the caramel notes come out in the finish. I don't get the acetone in the aroma, which is a great thing.

M - Fairly light with some carbonation. It is, however, a BA porter.

O - This is the first BA Porter I've had and I enjoyed it. They could have probably toned down the barrel just a touch to show the base a little more. The roast and chocolate notes are hard to find, but the barrel does present a lot of nice oak and vanilla/caramel notes.

Boilermakers aren't just for slammin' anymore- this one is packed in a handsome twenty-two ounce bottle and made for sippin'. It's crawin' out of the dive bars and onto a craft beer shelf near you... for the people, of course!

The heavily bourbonized ale pours with the disguise of Porter with its dark coffee-stained hue.
As a creamy and lightly fluffy head rises from the beer, it dissolves a bit too soon underneath the force of bourbon that drags it back down. Nearly half way through the glass, the ale falls still and only slightly generates with a swift swirl of the glass. With no trail of lace, the barrels obviously have gotten the best of the beer's appearance.

Bold aroma start out sweetly of caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Its toastier malt backbone of coffee, charred toast and dark chocolate prop up the sweetness but hardly balance its sweeter scent. Then comes the drunken oak character of bourbon- its own wood sweetness, char, vanillan and spice play heavily on the base porter and drastically change its aromatic profile.

Similar to taste, the beer's original Porter-like character is greatly compromised as the dry maltiness of fresh ground coffee, charred toast and bittersweet chocolate are dwarfed with the sweetness of caramel, heavy cream and sweet, sweet booze. The middle palate is as much bourbon flavored as it is of ale, as the moderately intense ale is no match for the barrel. Those toasty coconut, vanilla, and woody maple flavors overtake the flavor spread and offer a spicy and oaky finish.

Medium-full in body, the beer's early carbonation lifts from the malt quite quickly and allows the residual sweetness of the beer to sit and saturate the taste buds with its thin bourbony sweetness. Finishing without much transition, the aftertaste is of the same caramel sweet texture as the beer started.

Thought the barrels have drastically changed to the beer, perhaps for the better (depending on how much influence you want bourbon to have over the beer). Its easy to see that the mere six-percent ale doesn't just show bourbon nuances but has changed into a bourbon flavored beer with porter-like tendencies.

Bottle shared by Sean I think? Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.

A - Lightly tanned foam settles to a cap and thicker collar, leaving a few splotches of lace. Transparent dark brown body with ruby glints.

S - The initial whiff has a slight acetone note, but it dissipates fairly quickly and is replaced by oak, cola nut, sarsaparilla, whiskey and a touch of chocolate.

T - The taste has more roasted malts, with some dry roast nuts, cola, oak, and mild charry bitterness in the finish. Whiskey is still present, but I don't get the overwhelming sensation that other reviewers reported - I heard these were second use barrels too.

M - A tad fizzy, with a medium-light body. Not great, but not offensive for a 6% porter, even one that's barrel-aged. Lightly chewy, with a dry and tannin-heavy finish.

D - A decent beer, especially at the $7 price point - you can't get (m)any bombers of PVW barrel-aged porter! Easy to drink, but not overly memorable.

A - slightly opaque dark brown with a quick fading head

S - Light Bourbon at the start with soft vanilla and charred wood aromas. A nice toasted malt scent to compliment the barrel aromas. Very pleasant

T - A little thin but not too bad. Bourbon flavor is pretty much all vanilla and light alcohol. The porter is slightly chalky and acidic but has a good chocolate and toast flavor. Aftertaste has a coffee like acidity with a dry wood finish

M/O - Medium body that that is well carbonated. Aftertaste is thin and doesn't last too long. Easy to drink but nothing that bags for another sip. Tastes as if from the spent Ba sexy chocolate barrels and overall not bad

2011 vintage. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours near black with a 2" tan head. Huge trails and spider webs of lacing remain on the glass.

S- some bourbon, light vanilla, chocolate, and almost a faint cherry smell.

T- toffee, chocolate, some bourbon, and faint vanilla.

M- medium body and carbonation. Lighter in body and slightly acidic and effervescent.

O- not a bad beer. Wish it had more body.

A - Out of a 22oz bottle, but I also had it on draft and liked it better that way.

S - Nice lowkey bourbon smell with hints of chocolate and malt.

T - A bit of bourbon upfront followed by a traditional porter beer. Very easy drinking for a barrel aged beer. Not too pricey either.

M - Smooth, moderate carb. Subtle booze, but easy drinking.

O - Surprisingly easy drinking barrel aged beer. ABV is not too high, and this could be a nice go to barrel aged beer if it was produced more. Like this beer alot.

22oz bottle into snifter. Thanks StormKing47!

A: Pours an extra frothy glass of foam that slowly turned into dark chocolate brown liquid beneath a huge rocky film that left thick streaks of lace down the glass.
S: Sweet and boozy notes of bourbon, raisins, caramel, molasses, and vanilla oak barrel. Very rich and decadent smelling for only 6%.
T: Mellow flavors are not as potent as the nose let on. The flavors are sweet with notes for bourbon, vanilla, and caramel, with dark fruits, raisin and molasses in the finish. I get some barrel spice, chocolate, and bitter coffee in the finish. Roasted, toasted malts and a hint of burnt marshmallow comes through as well.
M: Medium-thin body, surprisingly normal (maybe a little high) carbonation for how frothy this beer looks, with a mouthfeel that drinks well but could maybe be a tad chewier.
O: Overall a very enjoyable beer, but given the strong bourbon barrel character, I think a higher alcohol meatier stout would have suited this beer. While I love the flavor, every sip makes me wish the body had a bit more. What’s up with the epic carbonation too? For a second I thought this was going to be infected. Definitely worth checking out though, thanks again Josh!

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to erichxedge for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, wood, and slight bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a subtle bourbon presence and somewhat muddled flavors.

Thanks to mjmadden for a big honkin' growler of this beer, which I couldn't have been more jazzed to pop open. Plus, I get a cool new growler to add to our collection.

Pours Jet-Black, with a nice dizzle of foam around the edges to let us know it's survived the journey from the Carolinas with carbonation intact. Bourbon erupts from the growler once we finally pry it from its cocoon of electrical tape, but seems to exhaust itself quickly, lying back into a subdued aura of boozy, malty bourbon.

People's Porter is one of those brews that I would have liked to taste the base beer alongside the barreled-up version, because I suspect the barrel might not have added a lot to the experience. The bourbon is upfront, but quiet, subtle, more of a lick of vanilla than anything else. The porter is nicely roasted with a surprisingly bitter ending kick, which I'd like to attribute to the hops, or perhaps the roast, honestly, I couldn't tell, just a tail of bitterness. Only had one glass from the growler, but would have liked another to do a more thorough analsysi (yes, that's my story & I'm sticking to it).

Good brew. Not up to the gold standard to barrel aged porters (Williamsberg) but I'd be happy to find myself staring into the dark of a People's Porter any day.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a standard pint glass.

I was pretty pumped to find a BBA beer while on our brief visit to this brewery. The bartender served this with very little head. The body is dark brown and crystal clear (or as best as I can tell in that lighting).

The nose has tons and tons of bourbon. Wow...smells like my wife will have to drive to the hotel. Roasted malts and coffee play background roles.

As the nose indicates, this is a bourbon bomb. There is something off about it though...almost like bourbon was added to this rather than the beer aging in barrels.

The mouthfeel is by far the weakest link in this offering. Watery with light carbonation. I think the MF really takes away from the other characters of this beer.

Man...this one has potential, but the body, and to a lesser extent, taste, needs some work. Worth the tick I guess, but I would not recommend...

Pours black from the bomber with a one finger kahki head. Smells like a bottle of Jack Daniels, along with a hint of roast. Flavor is roasty malts with a nice backbone of kentucky bourbon. In other words, the base beer doesn’t have enough umph to handle the bourbon. Lingering bittersweet chocolate. Low to medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Not too sweet or sticky. Not bad, but not impressed as this feels like a shot of whiskey in my beer without the creamy barrel complexity.

I picked this up from Foothills back in March.

Served in a Troegs Mad Elf snifter.

A: I started to pour this, but I got scared. The foam went up WAY above the actual liquid. The mocha head was quite a bit more than substantial.

S: Buttery bourbon, with quite the chocolate profile. Butter and then some!

T: Lots of chocolate notes. As a matter of fact, I got lots of cocoa notes. The bourbon was buttery and then some.

M: Creamy and with a lot of lacing here.

O: I liked it, but I liked the base beer better.

on tap at the BA Sexual Chocolate release part

a- pours a dark brown that has big transluscent brown tones when held to light. small cream colored head of the pour.

s- rich, sweet dark malts. a bit of caramel, wood, and a bit of tartness mixing with some fruity yeast esters. very light bourbon.

t- sweet malts up front; chocolate, caramel, light roasted. light bitterness balances the sweet malts. the tartness from the nose is even stronger here. I'm assuming it's tannins from the wood causing this. it's a nice complexity but it really doesn't hit my palate right. the bourbon is really light in this one.

m- medium-light bodied. moderate carbonation aides the fullness of this one. no alchohol warming.

d- good drinkability in the technical sense but the barrel really didn't do anything to improve this one. I stuck to the other options after one pour of this one. nice to see what happens when a lower ABV ale is thrown in some barrels.
