ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle from the Brewery. Pours out a dark black color with a tan head. Smell is very heavy on the bourbon and chocolate with some vanilla too. Taste is sweet and full of bourbon, but thin enough that it isnt over powering. Pretty good barrel aged beer; more of an entry level one. Good stuff, certainly somewhat unique in a world where everything starts tasting the same after thousands of beers..

<6% and solid beer. Good go to brew. Thin palate though. A big notch below port city. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

italianjohn (3094) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Black pour with a thin off white head and light lacing .... Aroma of chocolate, toffee, light vanilla and roasted malts .... Taste is of caramel, toffee, chocolate, roasted and light vanilla ..... Bourbon is light if non existent ... Light bitter bite on the back end .... Has lingering caramel, toffee and roasted malts .... Not as good as expected but solid

The bourbon barrel overwhelms all other aspects of the beer. This is basically any porter barrel aged.

Tap. The look is a nice tan head, black in color, dark look. The smell is whiskey, wood, vanilla, tannins, nuanced, good. The taste is much the same, more roasty notes, more chocolate, richer. Good beer.

rdixon77 (2671) - Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2016
Nice barrel aged porter. Dark brown color with khaki head. Nice mellow bourbon presence that works with a chocolate and brown sugar and caramel body. Medium bodied which is nice for a BA beer. Good stuff.

It pours dark brown with a tan head. It has aromas of chocolate, nuts, and bourbon. Taste is bittersweet with moderate notes of bourbon combined with chocolate and flavors of nuts. It has a medium body and some alcohol warming.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown to near black color with a large tan colored head. The aroma is full of sweet malt, cocoa and a hint of whiskey. The taste is heavy on sweet malt and caramel. A very enjoyable porter.

Bacterial (2960) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Draft at ChurchKey in DC. Nice dark black pour. Nice malt, nice bourbon, mellow malty character. Easy to drink and almost delicate. Light mouthfeel, low ABV.

SCCock02 (11) - - FEB 18, 2016
Dark brown body that holds up a creamy, thick, long lasting tan head. The aroma has cocoa powder, roast malt and a bit of coffee. The flavor starts with a touch of bitter roast malt, then the sweet malts provide support with chocolate and the coffee. Very solid Porter.
