Bourbon barrel aged that subtracts rather than adds to taste. Dark coloured body without a head. Medium mouthfeel, with astringency in the finish. Bourbon cheapens the taste. A tad of smoke and roast. Not great a porter though so-so drinkable is best I can say.

Bottle picked up at the brewery this summer. Pours a clear black with ruby highlights and a limited but surprisingly light coloured head. Aroma is oak forward with a hint of caramelized barley malts and rye tones. The barrel is also very prevalent in the taste, which starts and finishes with oak tannins. This beer ends with a more simple bitterness than I expected plus the alcohol warmth of the 7% ABV.

Although I appreciate many of Church Key's efforts, this is not my favourite and probably not one I'll buy again.
