3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque brown with a thin tan head. Aroma has some nutty peanut butter atop bourbon, caramel, and tootsie roll chocolate. Flavor loses the PB quite a bit...just a little nutty...light chocolate and mild bourbon...a bit chalky and cheap tasting but hides the big ABV well. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is slightly bourbony.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 Wow its like eating carmel popcorn. That is what this beer is. Aroma is carmel popcorn, taste is carmel popcorn No head at first out of bomber.. but it keeps givigng for a thin ring. Mouthfeel is a bit to much carbonation for this beer. To sweet to much carmel corn for me. I got no bourbon at all from this. WT.... nevermind. Actually did this go bad?

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
22oz bomber released Sept 2013. Pours dark brown with a 1" white head, nice lacing around the glass. Nose is chocolate, peanut butter, caramel, not a lot of bourbon. You can really pick up bourbon in the taste...WOW this is so good. The non BA version is a sweet dessert beer, the barrel aging really tones down the sweetness, smooths out the beer, and brings out a little more alcohol burn. I must say, this is by far my favorite Alabama brewed beer so far. Fantastic!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
What: Bourbon Barrel Aged Peanut Butter Porter
Appearance: opaque dark brown
Smell: peanut butter, dark chocolate. Almost no bourbon.
Taste: here’s the bourbon. Lashings of it. Peanut butter is almost absent. Mid-palate woody bitterness. A gentle brown sugar presents in the after-taste. There are complexities in the flavour that keep on coming.. quite fascinating.
Overall: very interesting stuff. Not something you’d want to have a lot of, but about 8 to 10 oz with a nice cheesecake would be the perfect dessert combo.
