2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a nice toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweet nutty and black malts with light vanilla and bourbon accenting. The flavor found weird sour malts (not super offensive, but I don’t believe it was intentionally sour), with moderate roast.. not a whole lot of barrel presence here. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, and again weirdly sour.. not so good.

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.
