650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Deep caramel. Milk chocolate. Banana, but not a phenolic aroma.

Taste - Strong bourbon and a little bit of that banana. Lots of oak. Oak becomes very intense, actually. Chocolatey.

Mouthfeel - Very oaky. A little boozy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - The banana fruity element adds a nice dimension, but otherwise it's totally dominated by the barrel.

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks Erik for sharing!

(A)- Pours a murky burnt sienna color. Minimal froth and lacing.

(S)- Nice bits of vanilla and caramel with a big showing of bourbon oak. Subtle raisin in the background.

(T)- Again, strong barrel notes in this. Big bits of vanilla and raisin.

(M)- A good carbonation level. This really showcases the bourbon barrel with the base beer taking back stage. What makes it is despite its big showing of the bourbon oak, it sits perfectly at only 7%ABV, so no booze burn.

(O)- I like this. A solid take on barrel aging the style and surprisingly drinkable too.

Dark impenetrable beer with minimal head. Nose has a deep malt with an over the top bourbon from the barrel aging. Good but unbalanced?

Not in the flavor, a robust porter with a good bourbon note, a sweetish finish, and well balanced by a hop note. This is a keeper.

Heavy, silky, smooth, just right. Only downside is the over the top nose but beyond that it's a great beer. Reported at 7% abv at the October Goose Island tasting.
