Barrel-aged version of Port Brewing Santas Little Helper.
2009 will be the inaugural release of this winter time classic. After brewing the 2008 batch of Santas we thought wonder what this would taste like aged in a bourbon barrel?

Roonai (305) - - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle shared by deyholla, thanks derek! Pours near black with deep mahogany edges when held to the light and a white soapy head that lasts on the edge. Nose is sweet bourbon and chocolate; rich malts with mild booze and chocolate sweets. Taste is similar. Delicious sweet malts, chocolate and a VERY smooth and well balanced bourbon to lend complexity and cutting note. This is my style of brew!

Az alap-verzi is kellemes emlkeket idzett bennem, nem tudtam ht elkpzelni, hogy a bourbon-hordban trtnő rlels brmit is ronthatna a dolgon. Termszetesen nem is kellett ilyesmivel szmolni, ez egyből vilgoss vlt a kitltst kvetően, amikor a klasznű folyam ontani kezdte magbl a legnagyobb rmmel fogadott mogyors, kkuszos, vanlis, whisky-s aromkat. A csonthjasok fs illatai szolglnak bevezetől az olvasztott tcsokolds, rummal zestett kvs, trkmogyors jegyek simulkony, kzepesen lnk karakternek megnyilatkozshoz; egy kifogstalan imperial stout, illetve egy lenyűgző, nnepi italnak sznt, s a cl elrsre tkletesen alkalmas főzet testet ltshez.

Korcz (1598) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Rewelacyjny, zbliżony do Bourbon County aromat. W smaku ogrom beczki, aż Bourbon szczypie w język. Przesiąknięte beczką do blu. Nieco zbyt wytrawny finisz. Bardzo dobre piwo, ale aromat obiecuje zdecydownie więcej, niż dostajemy w smaku.
