A light chocolate/bourbon/woody taste, smooth on the palate, med. carbonation, and a clear maple appearance. Good Stuff

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Sampled at Dutch 70s "Tasting in the Woods; Part Deux". Dark brown/mahogany with a high, light brown head. Somewhat of a subtle oak character in the nose. Flavor definitely has a nice chocolate chip cookie dough flavor along with notes caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla (sounds like a cookie recipe) and some wood. Pleasantly sweet with a nice bittering hop presence. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Enjoyable.

TITW Part Deux - Large handbottle courtesy of scraff! Pours a dark brown appearance, with a dark tan head; good retention. Chewy vanilla oak and light bourbon in the aroma. Nice level of carbonation; medium mouthfeel: sweet bourbon, toasty vanilla, light oak, light (almost watery) milk chocolate/porter background. Medium finish: slightly dry, showing dark chocolate and oak.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Bottle - TITW Part Deux - Deep brown, bordering black, creamy tan head. Nice tones of chocolale chip cookies, vanilla, and oak, with just the faintest hint of coconut. Flavor was soft with more of the above notes, but add a very faint maple tone to it. Was well balanced throughout, rich, with a light bitterness rounding it out. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dark chocolate-like finish. Very good stuff, but would have been better suited to be called porter vs. baltic porter. No matter, I dig it! Thanks Jim. Keep up the great work...

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Bottle... TITW Part Deux... Maple-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Notes of vanilla, chocolate and wood, but no bourbon, in the aroma. The flavor is malty and rich, but only lightly sweet with a hint of oak and gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough. Full-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp with a slightly bitter note of dark chocolate. Another strong offering from an already solid lineup of beers at DuClaw! Thanks, scraff & Jim for providing the bottle!

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2006
First sampled from the brewfest in Union Mills, MD on Sept. 30, 2006. The porter has great character in general with generous amounts of roastiness that are exentuated with the oak barrel. Alcohol is definately stronger than the non-aged draft, but is blended well with the aforementioned oak blend. Great Offering!
