Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

2013 vintage. Bottle # 87/2520.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots 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 and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness and an alcohol kick 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 very good beer with a nice balance between the cocoa and bourbon qualities.

750 mL bottle. Doesn't look like a porter. Deep brown at best. Smell has some light bourbon, light roast, and some light nuttiness. Kinda light smelling in general, considering what it is. Taste is also very light. Cardboard oxidation though. Sweet. Bourbon. Cardboard. A little roast and some brown sugar. Boozy. Medium body. I'd guess this was a richer and more flavorful beer a long time ago. Not so much anymore.

Wonderful rich looking pour. A deep, dark brown color with a ton of rich tan lacing throughout the glass. Competely opaque with no light shing through and the two inch head of chocolate on top only settled down gradually by the end of the session.

The aroma was to die for. Rich notes of whiskey and campfire aromas mixed seemlessly into a roasted malt and light coffee like smell. The flavor though was simply superb. Touches of oak and roasted caramel mixing with lots of peat and whiskey barrle goodness. So rich and full, even as it warmed it was second to none in the smoked flavor. This was easily the best smoked beer I have ever had. Such a rich mix of barrel flavors and the whiskey just presented itself in the perfect mixture. Full bodied with wonderful carbonation and the alcohol was no where near too strong, in facvt it came off just right.

Big thanks to Gil for sharing this one.

A: The beer pours a dark brown with a small khaki head.

S: Just a fantastic barrel aroma of bourbon and vanilla with a hint of oak. Plenty of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. There's even a bit of coffee in there.

T: As one might expect, there is plenty of chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla flavor to this beer. Very smooth and well rounded with a nice sweetness. A hint of roast with some mild coffee notes.

M: The body is a touch on the thin side, unfortunately. Smooth, medium carbonation.

O: This was a really nice beer. I wish that I had been able to get some bottles of this.

Thanks Tim!

A: Dark brown with a small bubbly head.

S: Dark chocolate melds with caramel and a dash of coffee. Tons of bourbon and vanilla. Light oak.

T: Lots of caramel with notes vanilla and oak. Bourbon is pronounced. The beer is moderately sweet with a little brown sugar and roast.

M: Medium body with lower moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is thin and watery.

Overall: Nice. Great barrel profile. This was much better than expected.
