look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours fudge brown with a nice cap; a decent amount of lacing lingers and the head retains well

Smell: Roasted tones and chocolate, with a smoky/peaty edge

Taste: Chocolate and roasty flavors, up front, with developing smoky/peaty elements; the oak and vanilla develop in the mid-palate but the finish is rather harsh

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Normally, I like what Bourbon barrels bring to a beer but in this case I think I prefer the base beer

Everett is so good on its own, so to my taste aging took away from the hops, masked it in bourbon... would take a fresh Everett growler any day over this although I was very glad to have tried. Wouldn't hesitate to drink again, but I prefer the fresh base beer.

Rather disappointing. I consider Everett to be about the best American porter our there. The BA version doesn't come close to the same level. I found it a bit sharp and woody, and noticeable thinner mouthfeel than the base beer.

From a bottle into a HFB glass to ring in the New Year. Pours a deep, rich black/brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is wonderful mix of the base Everett porter and the barrel character--smoke, chocolate, coffee, malt. Taste is fantastic. Simply put, one of the best beers I've ever had. Rich, complex with everything you'd expect from a top beer made better in a bourbon barrel. Easy to drink, and too soon finished.
