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.

Bottle from Magsinva. Pours black with a thin brown head. A bit of wood on the nose. Definitely has the characteristics of a Baltic porter on the tongue with hints of bourbon and wood. Hides its booze pretty well. Solid for style.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a slightly translucent dark brown cola with bubbly beige head that steadily dissipates into thinner lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, vanilla, oak, roast, and mild notes of bitter hops. Tastes like it smells, but less decadent and more oaky. Mouthfeel is medium to medium-full bodied; a bit thin for 12%. Good, not great, and smells better than it tastes.

Bottle, thanks tim! Deep brown with tan head. Fruity aroma, vanilla, oak. Flavour is a very strong bourbon beer, fruit and vanilla are there but it’s quite boozy. Overall super nice though.

Bourbon, malt, look, start all there......finish is not. Seems out of balance with finish. Heavy Hershey chocolate at the end. So close.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 Deep dark color and small head. Giggity. Bourbon is a perfect balance. Not bad at all. Porter is rich. Not thick but not light. Bottle

12oz bottle shared by Dan P. Poured a dark brown/almost black color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, and some roasted malts. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, boozy bourbon, dry oak, and earthy hops.
