I tried this beer on tap. It's a barrel aged brown ale.

It has a porter like appearance and smell, roasty and dark.

The flavor is that of a dry brown ale, with a lot of char from the barrel. It isn't a bourbon barrel taste, just charred wood infusion. It may work for some, but it didn't hit the spot for me.

The body isn't very heavy, lighter than i expected. It helped with the drinkability though.

Overall not a bad beer. It isn't one I'd revisit, but if you like smoky stouts or porters this may be up your alley.
