Pours a nearly opaque, very dark brown. Smoky, coffee nose. Lighter texture than one would expect. Not much going with this one, given the style. Some plastic jug whiskey, but only at a faintly detectable level. A bit of oatmeal and light smokiness

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad at all. The aroma had the whiskey essence as well as roasted malts and some sugar. Nice pitch black color with a tan head. Creamy palate with some weight. Nice malt taste that reminded me of a sweet or milk stout and similar to this brewer’s porter. The whiskey was not as prevalent in the taste but still there. Surprisingly good.

Thanks to tizzlejizzle for sharing this growler.
The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of roasted malt and a light amount of whiskey. The flavor is similar. Up front I get some bourbon whiskey and oak notes, which are complimented by some roasted malt and chocolate. I also get some vanilla, but it tastes a bit artificial. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.
