One of my first barrel aged beers and wow, it was excellent. Have had many form the bottle and one glass on tap at Elevator. (Good Food too.) Very nice mouth feel and easy finish. Not too strong on the bourbon taste but big aroma. very dark color with a nice head off the tap. I have a four pack that has aged for almost 2 years now. Need to pop one open soon.

Aroma is definitely barrel aged. The biggest thing missing is that this would be better if a Baltic Porter had been used. Decent beer.

deep ruby-brownish with minimal head, after six months of cellaring it is not overly boozy, just a mellow bourbon flavor on the finish.

Very dark in color. Foamy off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, nice smell. Relatively fruity for a porter, a little fig is noticed also. Slight tastes of chocolate and vanilla round out its flavor.

Medium bodied. Slightly boozy in the finish, but I like that part.

On draft

Almost black, very dark brown. Huge bourbon aroma, nice. Boozy and roasty taste, bold but good flavor. Medium bodied, easy to drink for the strength.

Way too much bourbon on this one, I can't really stand it, honestly tastes like Guinness with about 2 shots of Jim beam in it.

I thought it was fantastic. Can't imagine many bourbon barrel stouts that are better
