3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour to shaker. I was intrigued by this offering with a lower ABV and price than associated with bourbon barrel aged beers. I bought a single bottle but will buy more next trip to the store. It does not have whiskey or oak tones but is still a nice, smooth porter that I enjoyed.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark mahogany, no head. Aroma is oak and smoke, with some caramel. Reminds me almost of a campfire. Flavor is harsher when cold, but as it warms up there is very little flavor. There’s a little bit of bourbon and lots of caramel, but very little of either the more you drink it. The body is thinner than you’d expect. Not very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lacking in the bourbon flavor. A little too Light ConSidering the beer is slightly needing more flavor of its own. Would like to try it in the bottle ad we had on tap.

Bottle, aged from September 2011 bottling. Aroma of caramel, toffee, sweet milk chocolate. Appears dark brown, flat, minor foam. Tastes a lot like coffee, lingering coffee. Somewhat fizzy texture. Overall, nice but simple.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Licorice, sweet, oak aroma. Appearance is a reddish, dark brown with a tan head with poor retention. Flavor is a sweet chocolate with low hops. The char of the barrel is present on the end. Roast flavor is smooth. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's an ok beer. Lacks malt complexity though.
