Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Bottle stamp says "best after 11/2017," so this is a bit early. Great-looking bottle that honors George Dickel, as this was aged in his No. 12 whisky barrels. The beer was nice-looking as well, with a opaque dark brown color with a frothy and persistent tan head. Prominent whisky that dominated the nose - other notes including coffee and roasty malt were there but muted. The whisky also produced a slightly sour/tart aroma. The taste followed the nose, as the tartness and the whisky were up front, masking the porter flavors. The feel was smooth and the beer was between medium-bodied and full. Not terribly boozy from a feel standpoint. Overall I wish that I had sat on this one for about a year. Will be interesting to see how it evolves.
