Peopleís Porter aged in 20 year old bourbon barrels. this gold medal winning robust porter has a dark, ruby hue, and complex chocolate, caramel, and toffee notes. The bourbon barrels add a vanilla, bourbon character that is unmistakable. We hope you enjoy.

Bottle. Thin dark brown pour. Pleasant aroma of bourbon barrel: wood spice, bourbon barrel. Flavor is almost all bourbon barrel. Oak, bourbon, slight alcohol warmth. There is very little beer flavor behind this. Slight watered down chocolate malt. Crisp mouthfeel and surprisingly thin body. This feels like cheating. The bourbon barrel this was in obviously once held some great stuff, but the beer aged in it canít hold up to it. As a result, thereís a really nice bourbon start that then falls flat.

Pours very dark brown to black, with ruby edges and a very thick, rocky mocha head that settles slowly, leaving gobs of lace. Nose involves cola, roasted malt, vanilla, subtle whiskey notes, dark chocolate, what I imagine treacle would be though I have no idea what that is, marshmallow, and oak notes. Pretty sweet flavor with a fair bitterness. Lighter bodied, airy with effervescence, oily and slick, with a lengthy toasted malt and woody whiskey finish. Enjoyable, nice to have a barrel aged beer that isnít massive. Strangely (or not), it reminds me of a whiskey and coke.

On tap at jack of the wood in Asheville. I smell cocoa, Cherry liquor, coffee, licorice. Solid black and hardly any head. Big cocoa and coffee in front with licorice, smoke, bourbon, hops, malt, earth. Great porter feel. Outstanding.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Bomber at Ryanís. pours black with gray redish head. Aroma is awkward tart, tannic barrel, some roasty malt, red pepper. Taste is weird, roasty toasty, not good. Update: at my place with a clean palet after working on Sunday. I really like this, no idea why I didnít like it last time I had it. Nice barrel notes champion the flavor, with some roasted notes that have a medium bite. Finish is bouton chocolate and lightly roasted malt.

Poured as a small taster. Aroma is typical porter with chocolate notes on the nose, but there are also coconuts and toasted marshmallow. Tastes are typical porter as well, but somewhat subdued notes of caramel and toffee and oak.

SHIG (3635) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle thanks to Guyute_Pig: Poured a dark rich brown black with light brown head. Aroma was vanilla and booze. Taste was loads of rich roasted malt, boozy bourbon edge, and vanilla.

Poured deep brown, nearly black. Lacy head. Soft nose belays the wonderful boozy element in the mouth.

Pours pitch black. Chocolatey and roasty aroma. Palate is big roast with none of the bitterness. Oak, and bourbon come in as well as a touch of soy sauce but it all works. A fabulous beer!!

Black pour with a tan head. Full aroma, lots of chocolate, roast malts, caramel, just a hint of bourbon. The flavor is nicely rounded, just enough sweetness, not too bitter, the bourbon is part of the complexity and doesnít walk all over the other flavors. Well blended chocolate, coffee, dark caramel flavors form the base.
