The Baltic-style porter has a robust malt character and a slight herbal hop bitterness. Aged for 12 months in 10 year old Kentucky bourbon oak barrels, this alluring dark liquid features appealing undertones of vanilla, oak, cocoa and coffee. This aging occurs in abandoned mines in Michigan, at a constant temperature of 45F.

"2012 me thinks. Like the stout, too expensive and too thin, though this one was a little more extreme. 12% abv comes through a little too much when the body isn’t big. Still has the graham cracker barrel character, with some nice chocolate and vanilla notes, so it’s tasty enough...but the beer can’t stand up to the barrel."

Aroma of bourbon barrel, chocolate, and molasses. Similar flavors which are dominated by bourbon. Tastes super smooth and silky with a boozy, carbonated finish. Very nice beer.

12 oz bottle from 2011 red wax. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma and flavor had big bourbon notes, chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, wood, boozy at times, big certainly, definitely worth trying.

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2014
This is a very bourbon forward barrel aged porter. The booziness is apparent from the nose right from the get go. Definitely get a lot of toffee, caramel and chocolate here. At 12% this packs a punch, but it goes down easier than the ABV would have you imagine. A sipper with complexity and a smooth mouthfeel.
