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.

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 dont 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 doesnt help. Otherwise, its 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.
