This one pours a fairly dark black color, with a small foamy head, and a little bit of lacing.

I don't get a ton of barrel on the nose, but the aroma is still great. There's a nice nutty aroma, with lots of chocolate, roasted malt, and of course- graham crackers.

The nutty aroma carries over, and is surprising and pleasant- sort of a walnut and almond taste, with a sweet graham flavor, and lots of melted milk chocolate flavors. There's just a hint of bourbon, but no oak or oak-derived flavors that I can discern. This is one of the best tasting Framinghammer variants I've had in a while now.

This creamy and chewy, but not super thick, with a good level of carbonation.

I really enjoyed this- it's just a super pleasant, enjoyable, and tasty beer all around.

Big notes of graham cracker, creamy vanilla, and charred bourbon barrel highlight a bold nose. The mouth continues these trends, albeit in a more muted fashion tempered by a malty bitterness, as well as some cloyingly sweet elements here and there. Overall, a solid and creative take on a dessert porter, if not one which takes takes full advantage of its barrel-aged billing.

Pours a dark mocha 1 finger creamy head that fades at a med pace, a little lacing, pitch black beer

Nose is really interesting, a lot going on, lots of dark chocolate, fudge, tons of caramel, cocoa dust, plenty of graham cracker like aromas, very nutty, a touch of cinnamon like spice aroma, toffee, nougat and marshmallow, mild bourbon and vanilla barrel

Taste brings lots of the same, plenty of milk chocolate, a ton of coconut surprisingly, graham cracker notes especially on the back end, a little bourbon and vanilla barrel but more coconut and some baking spices, a touch of cinnamon and other spices, nutty, loads of caramel and toffee, fudgey with more nougat as well, a little spicy hop and touch of bitter roasted malt, drier but sticky finish, bit of warming alcohol, lingering spicy hop, fudge, bourbon and barrel notes

Mouth is fuller bod, thick creamy a bit lush, nice creamy carb, a bit of warming booze mostly late

Overall a pretty nice beer, wish the bourbon was a bit more, but nice barrel notes and graham cracker notes surprisingly, although I doubt they will age well.

A: Pours a pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a nice cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Roasted malt, graham cracker, bourbon, oak, and vanilla all in the mix. On the sweeter side

T: Starts off with a mix of roasted malt, graham cracker, bourbon, and oak. Picks up some vanilla along with way. Moderately sweet. Finishes with lingering bourbon, graham cracker, and roasted malt

M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Decently thick

O: Another killer in the BA Framinghammer series. Packs quite a kick and definitely borders on s'mores territory
