3.9/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Speiglau BA glass.

Look is a dark amber brown with an off white head.

Aroma is malty with a slight boozy note at the end.

Aroma starts off delicious a nice mix of malty and boozy but it gets a little astrigent at the end.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a medium brown color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, off white head that lasted an average amount of time. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A very average aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, caramel, and hops.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of the advertised bourbon (and the accompanying barrel), light caramel notes, some roasted malt, a bit of hops in the finish, and light chocolate notes. The problem with the flavor here is that it's a little weak. None of the ingredients (except the bourbon) are able to shine. Underwhelming, but not awful.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a somewhat thin finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Overall, not an impressive beer. Could have been better.

A thin looking draw that had little head but a good smell. Tastes very good and has a bit of sweetness and the alcohol is well hidden. Goes down easy and I have decided to have another on National Beer Day. Go Frogs

Bottle: Poured a deep hazy brown color porter with a medium size dark brown foamy head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of chocolate and deep caramelized malt with some residual sugar notes and bourbon notes. Taste is quite sweet with some residuals sugar notes, some chocolate notes and some vanilla and bourbon notes with light woody notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and light warming alcohol notes. Not bad but a bit too sweet and cloying for my taste.

Beer is misrepresented as a Baltic porter. Bottle dated drink by 4-17-16. Opened and it was a gusher. Poured into a prairie tulip. Color is Carmel with a thin layer of foam that sticks to the sides. Smell is wonderful Carmel, oak, and dates. Taste is nice as well. Medium body and a nice light whiskey flavor. Overall I think it is a great beer that is all over the place. Closer to a old ale/English barley wine. If it was labeled such I think you'd see much more consistent reviews. All in all it is very enjoyable and I got more than I was expecting from this offering. Probably will do well with age. I bought this last summer and put in my cellar, might buy another since they are still on the shelf at my local shop.

A little too boozy for me. Lost the porter flavor in the bourbon.
