Media. Surprisingly low abv in a bourbon beer, but it did on fact taste like it. Predominantly bourbon flavored, but light in the mouth...a tad thin.not a fan.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
A deep dark brown porter with a thick brown head. In aroma, a pleasant subdued bourbon barrel, light coffee and fusel. In mouth, a smooth tobacco like chocolate, with wood extract, vanilla, some astringence, a tad harsh. On tap at Lancaster location, April 8th, 2011.

20100104 Nitro tap at Newark location. I don’t recall the regular porter that well to realize the difference between the two, or what the barrel aging might have done to the beer beyond flavor/aroma, but this stuff is pretty thin and somewhat slick, my only knock on it, really, and the nitro doesn’t help. Otherwise, it’s a nice application of whiskey barrel with lots of vanilla to compliment the dark fruitiness of the malts. Very successful especially considering the low ABV.

11th October 2008. GABF. Clear dark brown. Light palate and a light porter - the bourbon us well blended in to the flavour profile.

jport4087 (178) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Nitro at Iron Hill Phoenixville. Highly enjoyed this dark porter. Heavy bourbon aroma at the nose. Velvety smooth and creamy on the palate with hints of vanilla through out. This one was a winner in my mind.
