COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2008 World Beer Cup Silver Medal Winner -Few ales are this fine. Starting out life as a classic English Porter, our Whiskey Porter is transferred to a genuine bourbon whiskey barrel for a two month aging. The barrel imparts the fine characteristics of bourbon and oak into an already-complex ale. A delicious, rich and dark ale is the result.
Malts: Domestic Two Row Pale & Caramel Malts & Chocolate
Hops: Willamette

Mep3222 (481) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Smells of roasted barley and strong vanilla aroma. Nice aroma. Taste is a bit sweet. Some whiskey flavor but the vanilla dominates. Vanilla flavor tastes a bit fake? Otherwise strong roasted barley. A bit sweet on the mouthfeel. Descent overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13

Aroma: This one had a nice oakey and malty nose, some chocolate, wood, and dark malts
Appearance: It poured a dark brownish color with a light brown head on it
Flavor: The taste is wood/oak, some dark malts and roast, with a little sweetness as well
Palate: The body is on the full side, it has a pretty interesting mouthfeel
Overall Impression: This beer impressed me. I liked it quite a bit. It has some good complexity to it, and overall, it just works pretty nicely.

dmac (3999) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Growler shared by Scott. Poured a pitch black thinner to average density body under a soap bubble super light beige head. Aroma definitely has a constant note of butter throughout, whiskey, wet barrel, char, burnt malts underneath. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a long light roasty flavor. Flavor of light butter, especially in the middle, up front has some light whiskey and wet burnt malts, dark toast and a bit more butter. Get the butter out and this will be far better.

mike67 (783) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2013
On Tap at the brewery in Troy, NY. Pours dark brown with long lived off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of coffee, caramel malt, dark fruit and whisky. Body is medium and smooth. Caramel malt, brown sugar, dark fruit, whisky and hint of hops combine on the palate. Finish is long and semi-dry. Interesting tasty porter.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Whiskey sweet with lighter roasted malts, and some sweet caramel malts as well. Good balance of the base beer and the barrel aging.

jgb9348 (4714) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Rich deep brown body with a thick, very fast dying two centimetre tall light brown head - nice. Super strong aroma of whiskey, deep alcohol, raisins, roasted malt, toffee, caramel and way more whiskey - that is really strong. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive roasted malt up front with a huge hit of whiskey, a bit of bourbon and a decent amount of vanilla - strong and nice. Aftertaste is quite potent with a little earthiness, a lot of roasted malt flavour, a decent amount of caramelised sugars and a ton more of the whiskey notes. Overall, a nice full flavoured beer without a ton of body and seemingly without the huge kick of alcohol. Nice to sample - not my favourite beer, but I was happy to try this and definitely worth trying to find. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$7.49 sampled back in upstate New York at home in New Paltz, New York on 08-September-2012.

Voodoo (304) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Pours with the look of a cola. Oak, vanilla, a slight chocolate taste and a whiff of whiskey sort of gives an appearance of alcohol without standing out. I am not a porter fan, and I’d like to see a tad more mouthfeel which would be an upping of the grain bill or raising of the final gravity , but otherwise a nice clean, interesting beer.
