12oz bottle. Etched on bottle is '28051 180173B'. Collaboration brew with Goose Island Beer Company.
Deep brown colored body. Thin tan head. Leaves some strings of lacing.
Aroma of bourbon barrel, vanilla, and toffee.
Taste is toffee, with a softness from the vanilla that balances against the bourbon burn. Has a little smoke, but not bitter.
Medium mouth feel, creamy smooth texture. Good carbonation. Some tongue burn.
The vanilla is more prominent here than in other bourbon aged porters, but this makes for a smooth sipper. The barrel is more in the smell than in the flavor profile. I liked the early after taste better than any other part of the flavor profile.

Pours A dark Rusty mahogany color with a thin tan head. Smell is fruity with vanilla ,oak some smoke. Tasted like a barleywine to me notes of fig,date and prune,has some wood notes,with an average barrel finish plus sweet/roasted malts . Mouth Feel is sweet and fruity with minimal barrel would have like more roasted malts and some smoke spice. Twas good would have liked more barrel after all it is Double barrel but not $9 a bottle good.

Pours a deep dark brown with a thin tan cap. Nice leggings when swirled. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and light bourbon. Flavor follows the nose, sweet with more bourbon than the nose would suggest. I get dark fruit and a hint of smoke. Feel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall a fantastic imperial Baltic Porter.
