COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Aroma is vanilla and light oak perfect overall. Taste has a light oak sour with a sweetness and malt thickness. Very nice. Nice dark with a head that fades quickly. Mouthfeel is perfect. I WILLL look for this one again. Amazing.

chinchill (4113) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2015
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. The body is very dark red brown and clear but nearly opaque in the glass. Aroma: Almost completely dominated by bourbon and bourbon barrel aromatics. Very woody and boozy. Flavor: also dominated by the bourbon barrels. The woody aromas were very strong, these didn’t much impair the aroma; but I normally find even less barrel flavor to detract from beers. Not so here. Still, this is a beer only for those who like low ABV aged bourbons. Of course, for a beer this is quite boozy, although the 12% alcohol is partially hidden in tasting.

Pours black with very thin brown head. Light carbonation, lots bourbon and vanilla in the nose. Flavor is smooth but thin on flavor. Lots of bourbon, not much beer. Drinkable though.

TimE (4885) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2015
Dark brown color. Off white head. Slightly sour nose with lots of bourbon and some chocolate malt. Fairly nice sweet mouth with decent alcohol burn and bourbon. Decent but fairly straight forward. Good.

monk191 (1708) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2015
A very good bourbon barreled porter. Almost more milk stout. Pours a deep black with a brown head. Smells of bourbon, vanilla and a hint of strawberry shortcake. Taste is similar, very milky and smooth. Bourbon and vanilla are well balanced, with more strawberry shortcake and a bit of coffee in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Aroma is dark fruit and booze. Appearance is a very dark brown with a tan head and some lacing. Taste is very dry and dark with a hint towards dates, bourbon, caramel, and vanilla. Palate is dark. Overall, a very interesting beer that I would like to try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Intoxicating aroma of bourbon, malt, coffee, chocolate and mud. Taste is far more dark coffee than chocolate. Bitter? Meh not so much. Just dark and boozy. Fun shit.
