Pours dark brown with little to no head. Grainy aroma and flavor. Not much in the way of bourbon flavor. Not great.

bwa5879 (655) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Aged approximately 8 months in bottle. Black pour with brown hues, a few fluffy inches of brown head. Initial nose of floral hops, sweet maple syrup, fragrant woodsy oak similar to walking into a wood shop, vanilla, and blended bourbon. Carbonation a bit high for the style and age, thinner mouthfeel, clean finish that dries your teeth. Bourbon and maple flavor very well mixed with roasted coffee and chocolate malts typical of a porter. Detecetable oak and vanilla as well, bitter flavor toward finish. not too overbearing BBA offering, well done and dare I say light.

Draft at Atwater in the Park - pours a dark brown with no head . Big bourbon aroma . Taste is sweet bourbon upfront with a hint of mild roast coffee . Not bad . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Busick (379) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Sold on the Bourbon Barrel Aged label, but this beer didn’t live up to the hype usually associated with Bourbon Barreled stouts.

Syndicate (89) - Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2014
12 oz bottle. Nose is sweet chocolate and gentle bourbon notes. Tastes of oak, vanilla and sweet cocoa.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
12oz bottle. Deep brown-black with burgundy corners. Respectable beige head. Sweet and sugary, the barrel just adds to that, mixing in some vanilla and mild oak. A pretty decent brew, but quite sweet. Wouldn’t really have any desire to drink two of these in a row. Drinkable, no off tones, but the last thing a Baltic Porter needs is more sweetness. OK, maybe.

kramer (4989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is heavy caramel, chocolate, roastiness, and a light hint of burnt rubber. I don’t really get any hint of wood or bourbon at all. The flavor does show a very light amount of woodiness, but there’s still not really any bourbon flavor. i might have guessed that this was aged very briefly in a charred oak barrel, but never that it was a bourbon barrel. Rather sweet with lots of caramel and some chocolate malts, light roast and just a hint of vanilla on the back end. Medium bodied with gentle soft carbonation. I’m all for subtlety, but I usually expect a little more barrel character than this guy offers.

Voodoo (313) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a healthy light brown head with lingers quite a while. Aroma is booze, chocolate, vanilla.....taste is very sweet chocolate, alcohol shows up early, vanilla, slight coffee, then disappears in a hurry. All the flavor in the front but disappears so quickly....this could stand some mouthfeel as it’s a bit thin.

umich03jm (1973) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a small creamy, tan head that just sits and barely moves. Aroma is ultra sweet chocolate milk, vanilla, caramel, and a little cereal-like fruitiness. Tastes like cereal milk mostly. No bourbon at all. Tastes more like is was aged with vanilla beans. A little thin in the body. Not bad but a little boring and watery. That statement pretty much sums up all Atwater beers though.

Chad484 (11) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep brown with tan head which dissipates quickly. Aromas of chocolate which is the primary flavor of the beer. Faint bourbon taste with no noticeable finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JFGrind (1845) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Strong malty aroma, dark brown full bodied with tan lingering head. Alcohol twang evident as well as an underlying bourbon flavor in this Baltic Porter. Moderate bitterness rounds out this beer.
